Dee - Beloved Forum Brother, Passed Too Soon - RIP

With heavy heart I have to report that Dee Swift has passed away. Dee was one of our most beloved members and will be greatly missed by many. He was always cheerful, and never had a bad word to say. It's easy to see why he had so many friends here.

Dee died very suddenly 4/16 from a cerebral hemorrhage. There was no prior illness and no warning. There was too much bleeding on the brain to operate, and it could not have been prevented. He was 39.

Rest in peace brother.

My sincerest condolences to his family, and to his girlfriend Jodi, who asked me to let his friends here know.

A shame to go at such a young age. I hope they buried him with his favorite guitar (That's what I want when I go). Condolences to his family and friends.

This is such sad news, Dee goes WAY back on the site with over 8000 posts and although he wasn't perhaps as active in recent days he was one of the core members of the site in past times.

He'll be deeply missed
