About a year ago I learned he hadn't got long to live due to a tumour near his optic nerve. I also discovered he had had enough of this life and the last I heard from him was about 5 months ago whilst living what sounded to me, a pretty desparate existance in his car after his partner kicked him out. Poor old bugger. Anyhow, raise a glass to him. A very intelligent person with some very grounded perspectives on life's philosophies and a likeminded soulmate in many ways. Least he reached the ripe old age of 60. Who the f**k want's to live much beyond that nowdays.

I raise a glass to you,Gimbalfan,i found your wit, humor,and use of vocabulary, genius,when you left this site it changed.
I remember Dennis and Gimbalfan going at it,you had to make some popcorn and get a drink cause it was about to get interesting!!
He was truly a Run Ryder Master...he will be missed, may you rest peace!! Godbless

The happiest people don,t have the best of everything,they just make the best of everything.

Thats horrible news,i was expecting him to pop in at any time and give me crap again.

Tell him I want a final show down and he will likely rise up from his grave.

R.I.P. Old "friend",we had some good times up till the middle of the night going back and forth.

My fav quote from Gimbalfan...

"Those whose noses can't smell the putrid stench which lingers over these endless many attempts at pointless political persuasion need surgery."

Here's to you...

May you find Dennis and have some more entertainment in the hereafter.

I believe he holds the record for times being banned. Around 30 I believe. Wasn't the sharpest tack in the drawer.

I am sorry about everyone loosing a friend. I went back and looked as some of his posts.

His last year was probably pretty bad. I don't want an advance warning. My father died by inches. There is nothing you can do but watch the slow demise. Fair seas and following winds.

he was a character, when him and foo were in same thread you could give up cable as they both were entertaining and brought life to the threads..

it seems a lot of people both famous celebrities and RR pilots have fallen asleep in death this year.

All The Best
