    In Memoriam: Doc

    It is with great sadness that I must inform you that one of our founding - and much beloved - members, Doc, passed away on Wednesday 26 July of 2017.

    He will be missed dearly.

    To his wife and family, our heartfelt sympathies.

    Doc passed away after a few years of declining health.
    He was in hospice care, with his wife by his side, at the end.
    I believe he was in his early 70s.
    As anyone who has had the unfortunate task knows, it takes time for the family to get final arraignments in place.
    We will share what details we can, as they become available.
    His family has requested a small PRIVATE affair, so for now this is his obituary.

    Doc, aka SurferDoc, was my friend for about the past 10 years and that time did fly by. I will miss him.
    One of the few truly good people I have had the pleasure of knowing in my lifetime.
    His knowledge, compassion, and willingness to share with others will always be an inspiration.

    Rest In Peace Doc. Your days of truth seeking are done. We are better people for having known you.

    I don't have any words to convey my sadness at Doc' passing.

    Just a terrible loss to all who knew him.

    RIP Doc.

    Doc was a wise, compassionate and wonderful person. It was an honor and privilege to know him and count him as my friend for the last several years. His legacy is the knowledge and wisdom he has passed on to all of us, both through his posts and blogs on the forums as well as the countless personal conversations we had over the years.

    Doc, you live on in our hearts and souls. RIP my brother...

    Terribly sad news.

    From reading the above, the pain of his loss to our members is apparent.


    His significant contributions and wisdom will 'live on' here in his writings.

    RIP

    We know there is a heaven because if there wasn't it would have to be especially created for Doc.

    I have no words to describe the pain loss and grief we feel now. He was the finest wisest and kindest man I was fortunate to know.
