    I know most of you knew the poster Semper Fi Nole.

    Some of you have met him and have also tailgated with him at various games.

    He passed away yesterday.

    Please pray for his wife and three kids.

    That is horribly tragic news. Thoughts and prayers with his family.

    I can only assume that the events are classified at this point?

    I know that the desire to know the circumstances of a situation like this is strong and entirely normal. Nevertheless, please avoid posting speculation or rumor.

    Just know that we went way too young (mid 40s) and left behind three children and a wife who truly adored him.

    That's tough for a young family, especially when it's a strong male figure in the house that passes away.

    How did this happen? why is it such a secret?

    Re: Sad News about Semper Fi Nole

    Here he is at the Spring Game with a present from Crowl.

    [​IMG]

    He hated to take pictures and only did so when I asked him to. Here we are at PoBoys the weekend of the FSU/BC Game.

    [​IMG]

    Again, I had to force him to take a picture...I had to do a self portrait shot at PoBoys that night...and he wasnt at all happy about it. Thats how he was.

    [​IMG]

    He was a good friend of mine off the board. He called and texted with me often to check up on me when I was going through some crap last year. He allowed me to vent and bitch and always had an ear to lend.

    The Semper you saw on here was a silly Semper who liked to do PUI threads and talk about missions to take down the gator nation...but he was a hard working man and a father who adored his kids and a husband who adored his wife. They have been together since they were teens.

    Every time I was bitching to him about something he'd simply say "Hey Princess...things could be worse...you could be a god damn lizard and have to wear dayglow orange and blue to games....I hate the freaken gators".

    He wasnt a fan of the gators but he did have lots of friends over on Gator Bait as well.
