I thought I had seen a recent post he had made, but I was wrong.  January 9th was I believe his last post here.  Sad he is gone.  I didn't know him well, but sad just the same.  Only 62 years old.

  Thank you for letting us know lyall.

Man that's sad.

 

I hope you don't mind, he was a member on MTF and active in the Sears section, I took the liberty of making a thread over there for that site.

If God told me I had one wish for anything to happen or come true, I tell you now, that I would ask him to do away with all cancer! I have know a lot of people who have had cancer and survived, including me, and some who it has reocurred in and passed away from it.

May he rest in peace.  So sad, way to young.      Prayers and peace to his family and friends.                                                                                      Roger.,

I sent Fabman's account a PM giving his family my condolences in hopes they see it.  He will be missed.

we pm back and forth

he came down for the yearly auction at the Mid Iowa Antique Power Show location in June of last year

we had a great time talking and checking over the auction

 

now I wish I would had gone to see him last month

he did not talk about his cancer - just that he was not filling good
