I called the church and confirmed there is a memorial for Andre Hedrick scheduled for Friday the 27th at 4PM. Devastating.

I met Andre at sharktoberfest. This is really disheartening news.

This is really sad. What a great guy.

It's so hard to know all the personal things that go on in people's lives.

All the best to his family.

I really do need to spend more time reading how to do stuff on the Internet, instead of wasting time actually building and testing things. That way, I could be an expert just sitting at my desk and the stuff I didn't build would be so much better.

Hard to take in, so sad, I sent him my old transmission mounts not so long ago to help with his project.

Really hard to take in.

I never met Andre but sent emails back and forth...This is indeed devastating. And with young kids too. My heart goes out to them and his wife. I am so sorry.

Thanks Bill. There is a link to donate to the Andre memorial fund. $100 in! While I never "met" him in person, Andre and I exchanged many emails and posts over the years. I'm going to miss his infection enthusiasm!

RIP.

Speechless. Blessed is the True Judge. So very sorry to read...may his memory be for a blessing and my his family find comfort.

Donated $92.80. Seemed appropriate.

So sad when one has demons that win

I spoke to Andre on 7/10 before leaving for OCIC. I just boxed up an A piller pod to send to him. He seemed fine and happy on the phone and was excited about getting the pod installed. He had just come back from Hawaii with the family. I really hope this is not the same guy!!
