Sir, we have decided to keep our family lost on May 11 private and we may later on give you more details, we hope you understand.

so as you can see it looks like we have lost one of our fellow jocks, and i would encourage the rest of us to let the family decide when they will give further details into the passing of there beloved family member, im sure they are thankful for our interest into there husband and father….this is all i know of the matter…thank you . grizzman

I got the original forum post last night, but the link had been removed. Thanks for the followup.

Condolences to the family. I never had much discussion with him, but I know he was quite active here, and was a big part of what makes this forum the place that it is. He will be missed…

I am surely puzzled.

You may need to zoom in the following email notification screen shot, but it clearly shows I received email from GMman on the 10th May?

Grizz, thanks for the update. I don’t recall that he ever talked of health problems. He will be missed.

This is really strange. I received a message last night (I was up quite late) from another LumberJock that read as follows “Just wanted to let you know that GMman is having to take care of some personal business. He really didn’t say what was going on, but I could tell by the tone that it wasn’t good. Maybe he’ll be back soon.”

Well if any of you folks finds out for sure I would like to know so keep us posted. I talked to Gmman some back in the good old ‘lounge days’.

well all i can say on this is that i can not speculate as to whether the information they sent is true or not, i made a honest attempt to find out if he was ok or what, as i had received a email from roger Clark telling me he had passed away, so i sent two pm’s and the second one said just what i posted, if this is some kind of joke , then its a sick thing to do …so i know as much as anyone else, ive tried to just find out for everyone’s benefit, and now i will leave it alone..were ever gm man is , may he be in peace.

Well, I appreciate you trying to find out, Grizz. I hope everything is going ok over there in Alabama. I sure do hope you and yours didn’t get any damage or injuries from those tornadoes that past through a couple of weeks or so back. Take care.

thanks for the info … I think we’ll hold off with putting him on the “Memorial” list though… but when we get another confirmation from somewhere, his name will be added.

I second your thoughts: wherever you are GMman, may you be in peace.
