Well, more sucky news from TrekBBS...

Red Ranger has passed away. I knew he had health problems, but last I'd heard he was optimistic about his recovery. This was pretty sudden. Happened almost a month ago, too, it was just announced to his online friends today.

I remember him mostly from TNZ and the meet-ups forum. I loved the commeraderie he and the other NYC area BBSers had, and hoped I'd get a chance to meet them all next time I'm up there. I also remember his almost constant war with Garak (ex TNZ mod). It could be very amusing reading them try to one-up each other with insults. I missed that in recent months. :(

That's two this year, him and Mallory. :( And I still miss Nibbles, five years later.

Oh my! I just looked on his facebook page and he died nearly 3 weeks ago from a bad fall. I knew he'd lost his leg due to his diabetes, but, wow!

Yeah, it's a shock. :( I'm glad his brother let us know.

I feel terrible about it - he's my friend on Facebook, and I would never have known had Flukie not posted about it today. :(
