Just in case you guys hadn't seen in the COV-19 post, "Splatter" passed away on September 12th, due to complications from COV-19. He had some breathing issues and wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but seemed to be staying positive.

There is a link to his obituary in the COV-19 post. Some forum members were able to do a bit of research based on his address from past transactions, FB posts, etc. and we were able to confirm it was him. I posted something on his obituary page on behalf of his buddies at RT. I wanted his family to know that although we had never met him, he touched our lives. Today I saw something really awesome from one of his posts about his health issues to another member. He said something like "At least I have my guitars, my family, and God". Was a really nice post and I think he was ready for whatever.

I contacted Curt (Chubtone) because Splatter actually has a guitar due to be completed in early December. I wanted him to have a heads up and my hope is that his family will be able to get this one last gift delivered to them. If they can't afford it, I'll pay to have it completed myself and given to his son. I'm sure they will be good to go but we can collect money even to offset, etc. Some of the forum dudes are planning on setting up a collection for flowers so look for that soon if we can pull it off.

It is a really sad thing when a forum member passes. He was a funny guy and so many of us talked shop with him. Although we were not hanging out in person with him, he still was a bro and I know all of us are hoping his family is ok thru all of this. R.I.P.

Very sad news. He wrote to me while in the hospital to inquire on an amp I had for sale at the time. Rest in peace brother Splatter.

Crazy! I almost took it for granted that he would likely recover and show back up here on RT. Not that I am not taking the virus seriously but just a reality check on how serious this virus can be. Yet another sad story to add to the list. RIP RT brother Splatter.

Rest In Peace. I never met him but I was hoping he could pull through. My thoughts are with his family and loved ones. He loved guitars as much as anyone here - just goes to show you never know when your life could be turned upside down when it’s your time.

This is a good time to remind ourselves to be civil to one another. There is a lot going on in the world right now, and with an upcoming election, not everything is going to be harmonious. This is a Music forum. We come together here to talk about gear. Let’s enjoy each other. I certainly enjoyed splatter’s Contributions and virtual friendship.

Really bummed. RIP

The last time I talked with Tim, we were talking about how he doesn't like to use boost pedals. I kept urging him to do it, and told him when he gets out of the hospital I was going to send him a boost. I really was going to do it, too. This really sucks. RIP brother.

That is horrible guys. Im really sorry.

I just lost a lifelong friend yesterday due to Cancer. We don't know what is on the other side but we will all be there one day.

Romanianreaper you are a stand up guy and your offer to Chubtone for Splatter's family is an incredible thing to do.
