In Memoriam>Fire Me Boy! has passed away
luv 08:11 AM 03-02-2020
His wife posted the news on his Facebook a little earlier this morning. I know that he will be missed by many on here, especially the foodies.

FMB was one of the first people to really welcome me on here when I first joined and started posting regularly. I never met him in person, but he was one great guy and a fellow grammar Nazi. :-)

I'm sure his wife would appreciate any thoughts or prayers.

RIP, Fire Me Boy!

PART OF OBITUARY THAT LEAVES OUT PEOPLE'S NAMES AND CHANGES HIS TO FMB:

He was a Kansas City Chief’s fan when it wasn’t popular and from his home helped cheer the Chiefs to their first Superbowl win in his lifetime. He was a foodie often seen on Chief’s Planet. FMB also was a photographer.[LIST WIFE OF 17 YEARS AND OTHER SURVIVORS]

His wife left a very moving post on his Facebook page yesterday. Moved me to tears. She knew she was loved, and that's what matters most.

While it might be a downer for some, celebrating someone's life and the good things we remember about them on some anonymous internet board is a pretty remarkable thing when you really get right down into it. I think 99.5% of everyone here really likes each other regardless of our creed, race, color, or religion, standing in life or other differences,

I like to be reminded about people like Lonewolf Ed who shared his brave battle with cancer with all of us and never lost his sense of humor. Now we have FMB with his Beetus Battle and Food threads.

Just a thought......:-)
Maybe a sub section in the Hall of Classics where we put the RIP threads, like this one, saying our goodbyes and our positive interactions with the CP'r who has passed on.

That was fantastic. Raw emotion. Since she posted it on Facebook. Wonder if it can be posted in this thread too?

I thought of that, but thought against it. Just didn't feel it was my place. I wanted to mention it without specifics because it just seemed really personal, but it says so much about his character.

Any way to cut-and-paste it without giving up her identity? I'd love to read it.

Yeah, I wouldn't feel comfortable because we weren't that close on Facebook. Maybe someone who was closer can ask. Surely she knows about Chiefsplanet?:-)

Well this is really shitty to learn about.


Loved reading his food threads, and actually just bought a smoker a few weeks ago due to his posts.

RIP

I guess there's no harm in that. It was "signed" but I left that part off.

That's as good a eulogy as a person can hope for. Very nice.
