Some of you really got to know him, that much is obvious to see. Makes me wish I had gotten to talk with him some more. He randomly came up and talked via PM. Struck conversation the good old fashioned way. Just by talking. No passive-aggressive awkwardness. Certainly gives the impression of a likeable guy. I admire that.
Man. What HAVE I been doing? Life is so short. Even shorter for those who passed away before their time. Wow.
He had other interests which he proudly displayed. He's one of those people who didn't have to be self conscious about sounding a bit off or hard to understand. That's a real gift. I'm sure he'll be missed. He's already being missed here as can be seen in fact.
