I'm sorry to report this, but I'll borrow Movieman's post over at XS to help me out....

"This is something I think we all knew was coming but all hoped we'd never see.
I had the pleasure to meet Jon twice and the joy of his life his daughter Annabelle.
Rest in Peace my friend.

ELLSWORTH - Jonathan Mark Magoon, 48, died Monday, Dec. 28, 2009, at Maine Coast Memorial Hospital, Ellsworth, after a long battle with bladder cancer. He is survived by the joy of his life, his three-year-old daughter, Annabelle Magoon of Ellsworth; her mother, Sue Magoon of Canada; his father, R. Carl Magoon; his sister, Carla Magoon; his nephew, Joshua Estes of Ellsworth; his stepdaughter, Leah Pomeroy and her partner, Jose and their three children, Nicolas, Jose and Iesha; his former wife, Tammy Magoon; many cousins, aunts and uncles. He was predeceased by his brother, Jeffery Martin Magoon; and his mother, Rachel Sargent Magoon. Jon was a graduate of Eastern Maine Vocational Technical Institute and was a skilled welder for many years. He was a loving father and good friend. A gathering of friends and brief service will be held 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 2, at St. Joseph's Parish Hall, High Street, Ellsworth. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to a fund for his daughter, Annabelle Magoon Donation Account, care of Union Trust Co., 66 Main St., Suite 101, Ellsworth, ME 04605."


I know Jon meant a great deal to you folks over here, and your generosity and compassion really touched him, as well as all of us on the XS team. For that, I say Thank You. :respect:

We have lost a truly great cruncher, teammate, friend, and most importantly, a dedicated father.

For those new on the team here, you only have to search on "loonym" for a user name to get some idea of the person we lost. He was quite special, even going through the worst of his battle with cancer.

My best to all of you at TPU,
Regards,
Bob

I have said what I needed to say at XS as I am just feeling so bad now and don't want to go on and on here too, so here is what matters to me and what mattered to Jon (loonym)
"SO many here and at TPU were so generous to him, TPU taking up a collection for him which brought him to tears and the time I was talking to him and he had gotten a gift certificate from a New Enlgander to a local grocery store chain and he was just overwhelmed that he was being so well thought of and essentially loved for which he was very grateful."
what TPU did taking up the collection for him touched him in a profound way which I know was something he wasn't expecting but made him be able to do a lot of things which he was putting off, and he was able to spoil Annabelle the light of his life.

I thank you for doing this as it meant a lot to him and I could tell there was a lot of caring people here at TPU.

-Ryan

Really lost for words here.

It's just such a pity to lose a wonderful man/father to this awful disease.I knew he was not well but it still is a shock to hear that he has passed on.

My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to his beautiful daughter Annabelle and wider family circle.
May he now rest in peace.

So sorry to hear this awful news, I too have been touched personally by the dreaded "C".... I did not know Jon personally although I saw through his words what kind of guy he was, if there is somewhere else truly good that some of the more fortunate of us might travel when we are done with out battles here..... Jon will surely be there waiting for us. RIP.

Requiescat in pace

I didnt know Loonym, i dont think I ever had any direct interaction with him in the forums... but I do recognise him and his avatar and am sorry to hear of the loss. Just looking quickly at a few old posts, the forum captures people and his posts seem still fresh, so alive, it's quite odd to think that those posts are from someone no longer with us.

Condolences to his family, and sorry he didnt get a chance to see his daughter grow another few years, and for her to enjoy her daddy. RIP and good luck to those grieving.

I only knew him as loonym, but he and I were regular posters on PC Perspective fourms back when they were AMDMB and we had DFI NF2 boards. He was a pleasant and generous guy, and I knew very little about him. I'm sure that others who knew him better probably thought even more of him. Thanks Jon... :respect:

Why man, why? I mean I knew this was coming as well as his health conditions were really bad, but dammit! This guy was just an amazing individual. I was part of that fund we collected a while back, but this time around I really don't know if I can send anything. My condolences go out to his family and I hope this really fires some people up when it comes to crunching/folding. This is truly a sad moment for me as well as I really appreciated what this amazing human being was doing, and who he was. :respect: :respect:

I'd like to make a lump sum donation from TPU for his daughter. For those interested, please contact me.

I'm hoping we can gather the same kind of support as we did last time. I think the greatest thing we can do for loonym is to make sure his daughter is taken care of. That's what I would want if it was me.

Sonofabitch. Wow this is sad. Great guy who was always talking about his daughter whom he loved more than anything and now she has to grow up without him. :(

From XS:

For those that are interested- there is a fund for Jon's daughter Annabelle. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to a fund for his daughter, Annabelle Magoon Donation Account, care of Union Trust Co., 66 Main St., Suite 101, Ellsworth, ME 04605 Again my heart goes out to the family during this sad time

may Jon rest in peace. I'm glad to have known loonym due to the fact of XS being down. He was a great man, and threw the pm's we threw back and forth, I'm very happy to have known him.

It's a sad day in deed to hear this. But, threw all of us that he has touched, his soul and spirit will live on.

Paulieg, I'll throw ya a pm in a bit.

Bob, thanks for lettings us know. I believe that threw the XS "downtime" we got a great deal of new faces that helped TPU.
