    Dean, BP and I became Moderators at the same time, and then again Senior Moderators, I didn't know him that well before then even though we had been here together for several years, in our 4 years as moderators I got to know him pretty well, whilst I appreciate this is a "virtual" community, what I can say is he was one of the finest gentlemen I have ever known and it has been a honour sharing this place with him, I can't imagine the pain his family is going through now and my thoughts are with them.

    I only know him from his name but when good guys pass away we ought to take a piece of them to make ourselves better and to honour their life. Condolences to his family and those that knew him.

    I don't come around these parts so often any more. On this sad occasion, I'm here. Kreij was one of the good guys, who had a great sense of humour, tolerance and wisdom. He was an old guy (like me) and simply someone I always found to be worthy of respect.

    RIP

    This is really sad news.. Dean was a super good guy, and a great friend. He's also a big reason I'm a Moderator here at TPU. I will really miss our coding conversations, and sharing what new projects we are working on.. My heart goes out to his family. RIP Buddy!

    Did he drop any loot?


    Just wanted to give my cyber buddy a farewell troll. Dean was one of the most stand up guys I have met in cyber space. The guy even offered me a place to stay if I was ever his way and talked with me about coming to FL and going muddin in the glades. G-d has a time for everyone and apparently heaven needed someone to do some proper muddin near the gates.

    As sad as I am reading the news I know he's happy now. My sadness is my/our loss. He is with his son who he missed dearly. Thats a pain I pray I will never know. All those years apart from him for Dean seemed like a nightmare I am sure. He's home now and I wish them both happy trails. The forum is a little colder but heaven now has a great new Moderator .

    Gonna miss you buddy. Beer will be drank and prayers will be said. Thanks for the chance to "know" you man.

    Kreij! Damn. I knew he wasn't going to live long after his diagnosis but that still sucks. Another old timer that I had respect for has gone. And that is a very sad thing.

    Rip Uncle Kreij. I myself have a family member diagnosed with the plague that is cancer. This has led me to spend less time on forums lately. This really saddens me.
