OMG, I remember when he started RHR I didn't spend much time there but I do remember him here this is so sad I am so sorry to hear this terrible news. I don't even know what to say but he will be missed.
Omg. Heart breaking. He was a class act, that guy, with an amazing family to match. His wife looked son for a short spell *edit from wife*. They'd gotten a new rescue pitbull and we all thought our son was a bit too young to be around the new dog. So that was several years ago. I haven't been in touch with him in quite some time. Oddly I was thinking about him a couple weeks ago and wished I'd reached out. Can't imagine what his son is feeling. :-(
Though I never knew him or had interactions, it still hurts to hear this news. I remember the last time I heard about someone I knew who had his own personal demons, so when he took his own life we were in so much shock I didn't know how to process it. I think we got past it by hugging our loved ones the first chance we got, and doing it often. I don't even have kids and I feel for those who do.
This past weekend I watched a Joe Rogan clip where his guest broke down in emotion when talking about Anthony Bourdain. They were close friends and I guess he was in equal shock mixed with anger. I can't imagine how close family and friends are feeling, my thoughts are with you.
So sorry to hear about this. John helped me out by loaning me an AMD cpu back before he moved to Alberta when I didn't have any other AMD hardware to troubleshoot my son's machine. He was a very friendly and helpful guy.
