    My friend @OldSkoolVWLover passed away. He was & always will be a part of my Internet family. So much love to his wife @lattajava #webos
    :-( My condolences to your family. Thank you for having been part of our webOS family.

    On his Twitter account about a week ago, he had posted that he was in ER, and a picture, but no further details that I see. :'(

    Moderator Update

    All... a Tribute article for Josh just went live on the CB site (as he was a current mod there).

    The article can be found here: Saluting one of the best moderators CrackBerry (and webOS Nation) ever had |

    I saw that too

    It's hard to believe when that happens, takes a little while for it to sink in. But i've been there before, ten years ago, when i found out that my mentor and dear friend, whom i knew through a tech forum, was suddenly gone. A mutual friend of ours had posted a thread in the morning, saying that the man had been hit by a stay bullet while out on his porch the evening prior. Just like that, a life can be taken away, a reminder of that we should do more to make our time worthwhile, to share kindness, common sense and make good memories, not grudges.

    Life is fragile...


    Rest in peace, my friend. We'll miss you.

    . . .

    My condolences to all that knew and loved Josh (aka OldSkoolVWLover), and to those of us here who have ~recently lost someone who was dear to them... to HelloNNNewman whose girlfriend had passed away some months ago, and also to another member here who has recently lost his sister to suicide. Please take care, and if anything, there's always someone here to talk to. We are all human and i guess, some things we just can't escape. But at least we are there for one another.
    Much love,

    So sad to hear the news. I loved chatting with Josh about dogs and cars. A real stand up guy with a huge heart.

    May Josh rest in peace, and G_d give his wife and family strength. :big-hug:

    One of the other CB Mods BigBadWulf started a thread on CrackBerry too, where OldSkoolVWLover had been a Mod since around May 2013.

    I remember the first time I saw that username, I thought this guy can't be all bad, I'm an oldskool vw lover too.

    Since then, I came to appreciate his input on the forum as reasonable and insightful. I appreciated seeing a comment by him in any thread I posted.

    He will be missed and remembered.

    Needless to say, this news came as a huge shock. It's never easy losing a friend, but this is extra difficult. Josh was simply a great guy. He came into the forums as a member who was always one of the first to help out someone with questions and quickly caught the attention of the mod team. As a moderator, Josh was always cracking jokes and simply fun to work with. I've had many conversations with him through Twitter and email and he was truly a great guy. He will be deeply missed.

    My heart and condolences go out to Josh's wife and family. What can I say.. he was a great guy and we'll miss him.
