Default R.I.P bigbazza

I had thought about the fact that bazza had not posted for a long time and went back to check when the last time was. At that point, it was back in the beginning of December.

With the thread about augie, I decided to check again.

In bigbazza's profile was this:

Quote:
Biography
my father passed away 14/12/11 just letting you all know #2 son
I do not know when it was entered, but the last log in was yesterday.

bazza loved Major Geeks. It was clear every single time he posted.

Rest in Peace, my friend.

A thank you to his son for letting us know. If you read this, please post and confirm for us.

Shocking to read this. bazza was here everyday. I've never met him, (I've never met any of you guys), yet I feel the loss. My condolences to bigbazza's real family.

"Interesting Website Links" won't be so interesting anymore.

Agreed. And if you are reading this, this is another thank you to you for taking time out of a very difficult time in your life, to let a group of people you never heard about know what happened to your father. We respected him and valued his contributions, and we deeply appreciate that you took the time to let us know why he has not been around. We will miss him.

That's awful. There really just aren't words for it. I hope his family is doing ok.
