Sad to hear about this. Although I didn't know him personally, I knew of him through the stories of friends here on Classic-Castle. I remember his work being some of the first that I saw when discovering the online community. My condolences go to those of you that knew him and enjoyed the positive presence and impact he had on your lives.
