    We have heard that one of our best members, Newman, passed away yesterday afternoon. I don't know any more details other than that he entered a hospital at the end of last week to undergo chemotherapy, and he told some of us on chat that the doctors thought his chances of recovery were very good. This is a devastating thing for his family, loved ones and this community. The only consolation is that he didn't suffer long. Nobody, including his family and girlfriend, had any idea of how seriously ill he was.

    It's beyond me how this happened so fast. Just last Tuesday evening, his girlfriend had a flat in the parking lot where she worked, and he was making arrangements for help. His sister asked him if he would pick up her son from school or sports practice, on Wednesday, which was the day before he was scheduled to enter the hospital. He was in great spirits, and looking forward to staying in touch with his friends on SF, during his stay.

    The last I had talked to him, he was waiting for surgery for a herniated disc in his back...and then they were going to be doing tests because they found his white blood cell count was off....

    RIP Newman....

    From many conversations with him it became clear that Newman was not a complicated guy...he seemed to like a simple life...driving truck...his remote controlled cars etc, his "Cuban lady" that he always referred to as "my girl"...and he liked blues music..ya gotta like that!!
    This is for you Newman...truly a "Simple Man"
