Indeed, he has been missed here, and that will always be the case. I can't express how saddened I am to get this news.

RIP, OBG.

Thanks Basecamp. I miss OBG too.
His last post seemed pretty clear to me about what was going to happen.
It is a good thing to know he had his family around him at his passing.

Thank you for letting us know he left surrounded by those who loved him, not by sterility and strangers.

We figured as much, but had not heard the "offical" word. Please send my condolences to his family

Thank you for updating us. He will be missed, and I`m glad it went rather 'quick' at the end w/least amount of suffering and surrounded by family and friends.

A man of wisdom, experience, humor, and class.

Seems many in this world could strive to emulate OBG, fall short, and still the world would be a better place...


Rest In Peace Trooper.
