James Bennett passed away this afternoon. James was a fellow moderator on another BBQ forum. I am copying/pasting the notice that was just made public there. He was somewhat active here and I though that you guys might want to know...




Folks

Its with great regret I type this note. I learned a little while ago that JamesB died this afternoon. I cant begin to express the complete sense of loss I am feeling for his family, friends and many forum friends. There are very few whole heartedly good people in the world. James was. He was a caring friend who always pitched in, helped out and went the extra mile to help those who knew him. I just cant put to words the sorrow I feel for losing him. He will be deeply missed.

I don't have all the details, what I currently understand is that James had some type of breathing issues that flared up occasionally and this afternoon those breathing issues overtook him and he died before the paramedics could get there.

Please pray for his family.

As I receive more details, we will post those here. I know in the days, weeks and months to come we will want to remember all the good things James did + offer our love and support to his family.

He certainly always one that wanted to help. He will be greatly missed. I found him to be a class on act on the occasions that he did visit us here.

The Bennett family will be in our thoughts and prayers.

How terrible.

I enjoyed reading his stuff and will cherish the little bit he and I shared around the interweb.

I had the pleasure to meet and cook with James for a weekend last year and I will tell you he was one heck of a man. His knowledge and helping ways will be missed by many.

RIP my friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

I missed several opportunities to meet James at get-togethers with the TXBBQF. I'm sorry to hear I will never get a chance to finally meet him.

God bless, James. Rest in peace.
