    RIP Dave Lukins :(

    This was posted on his Facebook page 5 minutes ago:

    To all......sadly our Pops,Dave, Peanuts passed away yesterday afternoon. All that know him knew that he had unfortunately suffered from a heart problem for some years now and at this minute we believe that this was the cause of our loss. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all his family and friends for the opinions, laughter and time you had all given him, especially keeping his very busy mind occupied on various forms of social media. The Tank Park in the sky will be a noisier place.

    I'm really gonna miss him

    now whats wrong with you 2014?!? who gave you the right to take away people we love?!?

    RIP Dave, you were always nice & supportive to me.

    Dave was, to me, one of big main pillars of WAB and i consider myself very lucky to have known him.

    sad sad day...

    Allah rahmet eylesin Dave.
    Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none; be able for thine enemy rather in power than use; and keep thy friend under thine own life's key; be checked for silence, but never taxed for speech.

    When he posted, you took note and reset. Quintessential... now lost to these bounds, but such an admirable trait one can only aspire to emulate.

    RIP Dave...you left us far too soon.
    “You don’t even have to be convicted of a crime to lose your job in this constitutional republic if the Senate determines that your conduct as a public official is clearly out of bounds in your role… because impeachment is not about punishment. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office.”
    ~ Lindsey Graham
