I also enjoyed Fieldthistle's sorta prose post.  I wondered why he left and now I know.  Any obituaries?  Over the years I have seen many posters pass without our knowledge.  Many I knew, some I knew only through Roadfood and others I never knew at all.

WOW - What a hard year it has been for our Roadfood family.
 
I haven't been on here at all the past year, it was hard being in the hospital 5 times, 3 "nursing" homes, 5 surgeries, and MONTHS of learning to walk again, I am NOT complaining, I was the lucky one.
 
The first page of this thread will be updated to reflect the 5 Roadfooders we have recently lost.  I apologize for the delay in posting our friends passing.  Pm me if I overlooked or forgot some one.

I think my good buddy Bill Kennedy, AKA The Ancient Mariner, has passed on.  I tried to call him several times, no voicemail was set up and no return call.  I Googled his address and his condo is shown as recently sold.  
 
Bill was a great friend and terrific RF'er,  I truly miss his wit and humor. He always kept us up to date on St.Pete's food scene.

That's a shame. I've missed the ancient one. Didn't he design a kitchen for you?

Yep, drew it up all by hand.  I brought his design to a local supplier, they are still using his recommendations.......and one liners!

I was cleaning out my PMs and came across one from 6star (Laird Carter) from back in 2011, when we shared a meal in the Peoria, IL area.  I checked and found he hadn't posted since 2014, and with a little more research I learned that he unfortunately passed away in 2015.  I'm glad I got to meet him in person; he was a nice guy.

Heard the sad news the Roadfooder James Hilton, aka Mr Chips has passed away.  His wife Trudy indicates he had been suffering from dementia and a recent fall causing a broken hip led to complications and his passing.  
 
Trudy is organizing a memorial for those of you in the Portland area on Friday, October 5th at 6:30pm.  It will be held at Kennedy School at 5736 NE 33rd Ave in Portland in the Parsons Room nearest the rear exit.  
 
From tie-dyed shirts to flair for the extra ordinary, James was a die-hard Roadfooder!  RIP!

Jim, a.k.a., mr chips certainly had a passion for Roadfood among other things.  He was a wonderful host everytime we would come through the Portland area.  He will be missed.

I am sad. I enjoyed the company of Jim and Trudy many times on their jaunts to Ashlandia.
