Unhappy Sad News

I'm not sure how intertwined these forums are, but given the posts I've seen, many people are using several.

A well know individual who goes by "Lugnut" in other forums had passed away and I thought some of you might want to know if you hadn't already.

Here is the thread provided by his nephew.

He's either a member or lurking at every Benz site on the interweb. Animals knows all. Be afraid, be very afraid.

Was Lugnut a member here?

No, only at Mercedesforum, where he was 'King of OT'. We used to go at it years ago over there, but found a lot of common ground over the past couple years and became online allies. The place hasn't been the same since his passing.

Just a casual lurker in the W163 and occasionally the OT. I saw that thread about a week ago, and if I remember correctly there is another thread about it as well.

There are three of them. One started by the administrator, one by Lugnut's nephew, and one by me.
