On Doc's passing

In case you didn't see the other post, Docvette has passed.
He will be missed tremendously by all, and especially by myself and Poncho62 as now the full responsibility of moderating this forum is on us. I will never be able to come up to the level of technical expertise and over all good guy that Doc was.

Here's to you Doc
You will be remembered
Vince

If there was a problem, especially with electrical or wiring, he always had a long and detailed explanation on how to fix it the right way. I really looked up to him on these boards. DocVette will be missed.

Hopefully we all learned something valuable from him, I know that I sure have.

He was always the go-to guy for anything auto-electric. He'll definitely be missed in this hotrod community. God bless he and his family, and be with 'em.

Here's to ya, Doc

If you will go to the Introduction forum....you will see that Doc's brother Mike joined Hotrodders early this morning. He gives a short history on Doc's life in his introduction. Mikes username is Repeaterman.

Sad to hear about Doc. Of all the forums I visit, his knowledge and quick response (to questions he heard many time before) was clearly the best. He will be missed.

RIP Doc, your expertise will be missed.

Thanks for all your help Doc,

If it wasnt for you my project wouldnt have finished, and my dreams never realized.

Rest in peace, and may we meet up again one day.

Doc

It always makes me sad when I see someone like Doc lost to our hobby, and to our society. A guy like him who, according to what his brother wrote, lived on both sides of society and chose to help others. His knowledge was obviously extensive and he loved sharing it, and only expected a thank you.
We'll all miss you Doc

<--I second what someone said on the other thread, lets call this "Doc"
