    I posted this in the lounge but not everyone frequents that thread. It is with a very heart that I must let you all know that our dear Jack passed away last weekend. I received the following email from his daughter.

    Mr. Ratman,

    I am very sorry to tell you that my dad (Jack) passed away on Saturday June 1. He went dancing, like usual on Friday night, and passed away from a heart attack when he got home that night. I talked to him at 9:30 Friday night about the kids rugby games the next day and he was happy and felt good.

    Please pass this news onto anyone else that you feel should know.

    Thank you,

    Gioa Majewski


    Rest in peace Jack, you were larger than life my friend and I am gonna miss the hell out of you.

    Wow. Cant believe that i just read that. This is a major loss to all of us. I barely knew Jack but what a presence and wealth of knowledge he shared with us. I will miss him greatly.

    I have thanked her for letting us know and will try to find out info on services and such for any who may be able to attend or wish to send flowers or the like. I will of course share that information here when I receive it.

    The ECF software won't let me do this proper, so an explanation to get me over the 10 character limit: A moment of silent respect on a forum is represented with a single period.

    I'll miss Jack :(

    His wonderfully inappropriate sense of humor, his helpfullness... I feel that I owe him for helping turn me to Reos last November, and for helping me stay away from smoking.

    Ratman, please forward this thread to Jack's family sometime, along with my thoughts and best wishes.

    Jack, you gave us but a small part of your life.

    I feel very honored to have been able to sit on this side of the screen and accept you as part of my family.

    I will miss you.

    I'm sad to learn he has passed, but I sit here celebrating him and the way he chose to live his life to the fullest and I'm grateful that he shared part of that life with us here.

    Thank you, Jack! You did life the right way. Mission accomplished, end of watch, and we'll miss ya!

    I'm so sorry to learn this. :(
    I loved reading his posts! His recap of the recent Reo-meet was awesome and so entertaining.
    He'll be missed here, for sure.

    Edited to add: Thanks, Ratman for posting this here. I'm one of those who doesn't always check the lounge. I would have missed this.
