All, This is Techxan's son posting under his account. I just read the memorial thread posted by rabbitking, but the thread was closed & I wasn't able to respond. First off, I have to tell you all how much he enjoyed his time here and what it meant to him. Big surprise that I'm in the IT field having him as my father. Because of that, we often talked a lot about IT related matters and he always had good things to say about BHW. My dad passed on December 22nd unexpectedly. The coroner's report basically says he had a heart attack, but myself & my family don't believe that. He was a....big man to say the least however he had cataract surgery in August which required that he take a full physical. As far as heart health, he passed with flying colors. BP was 120/78, low cholesterol & triglycerides, EKG was perfect, etc. We think the coroner basically took a look at his size and just said "heart attack". A few weeks before he passed, we went Christmas tree shopping and he dropped the tree on his toe, bashing the hell out of it. I personally believe he had a clot that traveled. I was the first person there after being contacted by my mom and insisted on seeing him. He was found at his computer working (which was normal), sitting in his chair, yet nothing was knocked off the desk onto the ground and no signs existed that seemed to indicate that he was suffered or struggled. My mom had a very bad heart attack in '06, so I'm keenly aware of what happens when someone has one and I just don't believe that was what happened. It looks as though it was instant which is one of the few positive things I can say about all this. Dad was cremated and we all got an urn with his ashes. He was 60 when he passed. We were a small family: just him, my mom, my sister & myself. Later I added a few grandchildren, a boy & a girl. That was the extent of our immediate family, so this has been devastating to all of us. You all saw how he was here, so you can imagine what it was like to know him in real life and, to speak personally, what it was like to be his only son. Thank you to all of you for the kind words I just read. I cried like a baby. For anyone interested, here is the link to his obituary: http://www.jeterfuneralhome.com/obit.php?id=1384 A special thank you to redrubies who has been talking to me over Facebook. Also, to the user who found the fabled "stool", please PM this account so that I can make arrangements to get that to my mom if you are so inclined. MODS: If I've done something wrong, overstepped my bounds or broken any rules, please let me know. I'm not a member of this forum Regards, Techxan Jr.
