I just read on another forum that Grumpy frequented that he has passed on.

Dang, I really hate to hear that, and hope it's not true. I really liked Grumpy, he added a little something special to the board. RIP Grumpy, you will be missed.

I agree 100% with this. He will be missed!

As I looked online, and I caught that bit, but couldn't draw anything up to know for sure and hoped that wasn't the case :(
Maybe his wife will reply to my letter/note so I can update all ;)

Got a # from Hobbes off the internet and may call it tomorrow and hope it's the right one :thumbup:

It's weird how someone you didn't know other than from a forum can make you cry. This place is not gonna be the same.

Damn, I looked through obituaries that I could find locally to the region but couldn't find anything. I hate to hear that.

if you get ahold of his family (wife) etc, if they had a obit posted anywhere, get a link and we can get it posted on here for every one to read.

I've looked again at obituaries in Havre, Great Falls, and the funeral home in Gildford and can't find anything. Anyone know if it was a couple days ago or a couple weeks?

considering that Sept 25th was his last log in date I would think it had to be around that time period

Looked and found the same # as Hobbes had given me.
Generic message, so I left info and home # and my 800# and can hope it was the right # and will get a reply from his wife, either by phone or snail mail in reply to my original mailed note to Grump.

If this is true, it's horrible information! Just like all of you have said, he will be missed tremendously! I would have loved to gone out there and hunted with him....heck, or even to to have met him.

Those of you all that have reached out to his family, like everyone said, please keep us updated and we will pray it's not true.

As with the other folks on this forum, I've enjoyed Grumpy's alternative perspective on most topics. Through my career I have had the pleasure knowing and working with what I would phrase as "characters" along the way. Most were intelligent, asked the hard questions, and were not timid in voicing their opinion, knock you over with funny as hell cracks! Grumpy was one of those, even if I had not had the pleasure of meeting him face to face. He will be missed.

I always looked forward to reading his posts. In a place full of nitwits...and I mean that in a good way...he was one of the wittiest! There were countless times I laughed out loud at what he posted. It won't be the same without him...maybe someone could start a best of Grumpy thread with some of his classic posts?

Hopefully the news of his death is incorrect. While I've privately corresponded with him, I never knew his name. If someone knows his name and where he lived, maybe the local sheriff would know. Gil

I found him hard at work. No time for puter games.

RIP Grumpy, how fitting and Grumpy would’ve approved. I like others knew him only through posts but will miss him.
