Gardentender---Rest In Peace
 
I just got word that Gardentender (John Cox) from Dallas, TX and a long time TDIClub member, passed away yesterday from a battle with cancer.

His humor and wit was always enjoyed on this site and he never let it go, even at the end.

His last wish was that any memorials be exchanged for care packages sent to the troops in Iraq.

Thanks,
MaryP

Sorry to hear that. In addition, we should add him to the "Gone but not forgotten" page. http://tdiclub.com/gbnf/

Mary, if you are able, please pass our condolences to his family.

My condolences to his family. They are in our prayers.

As he posted in the thread in gbnf for Switca,

"Godspeed. No CEL in the beyond!!"

Yes - John! You'll be sorely missed...

Reading the GBNF threads is tough...

Adding new names to the list is tougher...

RIP John... rest in peace

May your last autorotation be a good one, John. RIP.
I wished we could have gone for a bicycle ride before you left.

Rest in peace, friend. I'll always have fond memories of the old-school TDI crew.

A sad, sad day.

John, you will be missed.

For you John, I'll take a few steps for you tonight.

You'll be sorely missed by those of us still earthbound. Soft landings for you from here on out sir.

I've been wondering about Gardentender. Hadn't seen any posts for perhaps a year? His expert humor was one of the earliest memories I have of this forum. Would have liked to have met him. Seems like he could find humor in every situation. We need more folks like him.
