Very nice CK.  A few of those I wasn't even aware that they had passed away.  Thanks for starting this thread and hopefully the list will remain short.

Just did a little research and unfortunately, there is another name to add.  GeoNit, who came to several Roadfood get togethers here in the Pittsburgh area, passed away last year.  He was a real gentleman who loved Penn State and eating well!

We were driving through Sewickley last weekend and I thought about him (he lived across from the Sewickley Country Inn).  I was telling Michael that the last time I saw him was when we all met at Max's Allegheny Tavern.  I am very sorry that his name is on this list.

Kozel,
I thought this was a thread about people who have passed on, not about people who choose to no longer post

If I remember correctly, he is or was ancient.  Not sure if he ever had any personal contact with anyone here that can report on his health.  I'm hoping for the best but assuming the worst. If I'm wrong, I'd gladly apologize. 

 
The Ancient Mariner, Bill Kennedy, has cataracts and has to use a voice program to read and write emails.  These programs are not very good, making it difficult to have a conversation.
 
Last time we spoke, other than the cataracts, he is in good spirits as usual.

This is one of those threads which I would prefer not to see at all..
Last night when I was on Roadfood I just happened to see an old post from someone who Buffetbuster and I met in Raleigh back in March 2009.
We had the pleasure of joining DLnWPBrown and his wife Wendy at the Barbecue Lodge
Dennis hadn't posted in quite some time, and I knew he had some health issues, unfortunately I feared the worst...
It appears Dennis passed away on September 7, 2011 at the very young age of 42.
I have included a link to his obituary
We enjoyed Dennis and Wendy's company, and it  saddens me to see this news.
Dennis was truly a great guy,  and he will be missed.

For whatever reasons, Seafarer John and I had a fun and friendly rapport on this forum.  I do miss his always kind words.
 
Much in his style, he wrote his own obituary for those who care to read further.

I am so sorry to learn about Dennis Brown's passing. I shared a meal of Carolina bbq with Dennis and his wife Wendy at Lexington #1 about three years ago; they were a very nice couple and I do remember Dennis mentioning that he was dealing with a major medical condition. This is really depressing news.

Thanks so much to WJ for calling and letting me know of Dennis Brown's passing.  Like he and CarolinaBob mentioned, Dennis was one of the good guys.  He was very frank about his health, yet remained in high spirits and loved to talk Carolina bbq.  He will be missed!

The untimely passing of Steve got me thinking about another wonderful Roadfooder I was lucky enough to meet, rouxdog.  He welcomed us into his house in Carrizozo, NM, bought us lunch and loaded us up with local food and beverage gifts.  For sure, there were other people on these board who were also benefactors of his generosity.
 
Unfortunately, I just found his obituary
 
R.I.P. rouxdog, you were one of the good guys.

I've got to add Picky Peggy to the list. Although she didn't post here she did attend several road food events over the years with me. The last fun trip she and I ever got to take together was the Buffalo and Rochester bus tour in 2009. We were unable to ride the bus since she was on oxygen and it would've been quite hard for her to climb in and out of the bus.

She passed 2/17/2012.

And to note Dickie Estep was a first cousin of mine, he was a lot of fun to be around.

I don't think this is the appropriate thread to ask. I never really give much thought about others who stop posting unless I know them on a personal level. He may have simply moved on or is busy with other things.

He was a special poster.  I was always sad for him as he had a very physically and mentally challenged son.  It was very difficult for him to go out to restaurants with him and he told me that it could be very embarrassing for him at times, as so many people were upset with being in the restaurant with him and his son.  It is sad to realize that there are so many people that are intolerant of handicapped people.
