My friend, Joseph Sekida ("SqzMyLemon") died last night after a long bout with pancreatic cancer. I got to know him through this game and forum and am grateful for having known him. He was a great partner and a good man.

Fair winds and following seas.

Man, Andre, I am very sad to hear this. You were especially close to him. Obvert too, I believe. This is sad news for the community as a whole but especially for you guys and others who were close to him.

I think his last appearance was perhaps six or eight weeks ago. He handled things so well. He was a gentleman.

Thanks for bringing word to us. If there's a way we can contact the family via email or mail that seems appropriate, please let us know.

Sorry to hear that. I know that he was a model ship builder as well as a gamer.

Anyone who builds model ships is alright in my book.

Also, he seemed to have a love or desire for muscle cars.
I don’t know if he ever got that 1969 396 SS Chevelle but I sure hope so.

Luck is the residue of design……..Indeed...R.I.P.

Very sad to hear. I didn't know him too well, but I read his (and others' continuation) AAR. When he came on a few weeks ago, it sounded like he was getting better, but perhaps he was being stoic about it all. Anyways, rest in peace and good luck in the next chapter whatever or wherever that might be.

I knew Joseph from the forum. I learnt my first tricks as a Japanese from his AAR against Smeulders. Then we ran parallel games, against JocMeister and Spence, this is where we got to know each other. We then were opponents in 2016, had a lot of fun.

I had him on the phone last August, he was happy, enjoying summer. He was a nice forumite, a great opponent, and a good friend.

My thoughts go to his wife and his mother.
Rest in peace, Joseph, you will be missed.

Francois

Very sorry to hear this. Although I never interacted directly with him, he certainly came across as a gentleman and put his best face on the situation after he received his diagnosis. This forum is very much richer for him having been here.

May he rest in peace.

RIP, dang forum members keep falling.

Pancreatic cancer is a rough one. My SO's step-mother died of it and it was hard way to go and tough to watch happen. Her step-brother, who was an alcoholic fell off the wagon hard afterwards.

Sad news indeed. His place here on Earth will be missed by many of us from all places around the globe. His local friends and family probably don't have a perspective on the global reach through the forum here. Unknown to them his passing will be felt by many people. Our community is the poorer without him.

They know. I'm sure Chickenboy told them. I told his wife today via email, that people from Singapore to South Korea, England to Sweden to the Czech Republic, France and many of the states and some of the provinces, all knew Joseph. That we knew him as a gentleman. That we are a tightknit group who share a love for history and a complex game. That we'd known Joseph for years. That he was a meticulous player who prepared thoroughly and who grumbled good-naturedly when an opponent pulled some tricky calamity on him, just like we all do, and that we will all miss him, especially his former opponents, who are quite hurt at his passing.

An hour later, I received the most beautiful reply from her. She must be quite a lady.

If Andre thinks its fitting, perhaps he can share her email address (at least via PM) so that others of you can write condolences. If you wonder if your words could be meaningful at a time like this, this was how she ended her email:

"Your words warmed my heart... He loved history so much and enjoyed playing very much... Thank you from the bottom of my heart, I will print out your email and treasure it forever..."

Rest in peace.

In 2013 I came down with what we thought was laryngitis and after two weeks, it just would not go away.
At the time I was into a long career as a Sr Accts Mgr at a major bank, with many great customers who contacted me by phone.
Friendships developed and several were concerned about my voice problems enough to convince me to return to the Dr..
I finally did, and after seeing several specialists, it was determined I had a massive case of cancer, stage 3 Neuroendocrine carcinoma, in both lungs, my throat, and "30 to 40" lymph nodes.
I was told it was "inoperable"...but my great Oncologist did not bat an eye when he said "So we will burn it out with radiation."

I began daily treatments, which lasted for months...and the cancer was killed.
Until this event in my life, I had been a big, strapping former army Ranger, capable of bench pressing over 300 pounds, even into my sixties.
The cancer NEVER made me feel ill at all.
If not for that "laryngitis"...I would be gone now as well.

I believe I was spared in order to tell my story, to give an encouragement if and when possible, that cancer CAN be beaten at times...even when declared "inoperable".
None of us can take our lives for granted, and IMHO no matter how healthy we think we are...even something as innocuous as a case of a raspy throat might be natures way of getting us in to see the Dr.
