[:(]Short message, Bill Brown passed away from a heart attack. This pass week. RIP Bill, you will be missed....GP




Anachro -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 4:15:09 PM)

Rest in peace to him. He was a swell guy and a stalwart of this forum. He'll be missed.




durnedwolf -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 4:21:43 PM)

I received the following email today:

I am Robert,

Last Tuesday morning Bill suffered a heart attack and passed away. He left an instruction letter
and one item is to send this email to all on his contact list for this account.

I will be deleting this account soon, another instruction was to wipe this computer clean and
donate it to a worthy cause.

Sadly, Robert


I will miss Bill. I know he grew up around San Diego and that in his youth his family would come up to the Eastern Sierras for fishing and outdoor excursions.

I wish Bill fair winds and following seas.





Kursk1943 -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 5:00:24 PM)

That is really shocking, I'll miss him.




geofflambert -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 5:08:52 PM)

He was always helpful to anyone and never in a bad mood. Solid.




Orm -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 5:24:24 PM)

Rest in Peace, Bill.




Kull -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 6:12:27 PM)

Really, really horrible news. Bill was a true gentleman, always willing to help out new folks. One of the great members here, and his absence will be felt (it already is). Just awful.




Zorch -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 6:12:54 PM)

And he didn't even play Chickenboy. [:(]




WriterNotViking -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 6:27:14 PM)

I never interacted with him, but his posts were often helpful to me. Clearly a great loss for the community, and more so for his family. May he rest in peace.




RangerJoe -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 7:14:53 PM)

May he Rest In Peace.

Sad news, hope he finds an opponent soon up above.

Got this same message this morning. He was on our play-testing team for the new version of Between the Storms. A definite loss for the Forum and myself of a nice, gracious man.

Makes one think about making sure someone we know is prepared to let the Forum know if they are lost or suffer some form of severe set-back in life. How many have we lost and not known about it? Sounds like Bill prepared for the moment. It is a good note for all of us to remember. Looks like he is still helping even after gone.

I'll miss him.




PTalvela -> RE: Bill Brown (2/22/2020 8:23:33 PM)

warspite1 -> RE: Bill Brown (2/23/2020 8:51:20 AM)

RIP fellow wargamer [:(]




Trugrit -> RE: Bill Brown (2/23/2020 10:33:08 AM)


Very sad.

I did not know him well but I was told he was a good guy and a fierce competitor.

We are all brothers. We share a common passion for history and the game.
It has been said that brothers and sisters seldom grow up in the same family.

I think that is true.

Rest in Peace brother.





Canoerebel -> RE: Bill Brown (2/23/2020 1:14:49 PM)

This is terribly sad news that caught me by surprise last night.

Bill was a soft-spoken guy who often did little kindnesses for players. Just a small for instance: A few years ago, John III ran into a bug running the next turn in our game. He couldn't figure it out. Bill offered to take the turn, load it and the mod and all the adjustments on his computer, and figure things out. Since neither John nor I are computer guys, we took him up on it. He figured it out, as the cost of much more time than he let on, and soon had us back in the game.

He was always doing little things like that. He was always kind. Always had good things to say.

I'd only recently noticed that he was taking on the mantle of PBEM. (If he had much earlier, I wasn't aware of it.) I was glad to see him coming more fully into the community.

Bill Brown was a gentlemen and one of the community who made it was it is - a place of good men.




Scott_USN -> RE: Bill Brown (2/23/2020 4:02:31 PM)

I didn't interact with him much but I did read his post and learned a lot. RIP




fabertong -> RE: Bill Brown (2/23/2020 7:35:32 PM)

I started a PBEM with Bill just before Christmas last year.

I can't in any way say I knew him.....but in every interaction we had in the last three months I found him a genuine human being.

My thoughts go out to his Family and friends....a very sad loss.

D.




dr.hal -> RE: Bill Brown (2/23/2020 9:45:27 PM)

Very sad indeed, thanks for sharing and letting the Forum members know.




Barb -> RE: Bill Brown (2/24/2020 8:41:47 AM)

Sorry to hear the news. [:(]




Kitakami -> RE: Bill Brown (2/24/2020 5:43:40 PM)

Sad to read this. Best wishes for his family.
