    I only met him once, but he was such a cool guy. R.I.P. You'll be missed.

    I got to hang out and talk to Joe, @OleSlewFoot , for quite some last June at ToyTec's Customer Appreciation Day. Connor's roomate. Joe is the real deal. Very likeable. This tragedy can't be easy for him at all and glad he signed on and started this thread. Had to suck but Joe knew we needed to know what happened. I've PM'd him and he is hanging in there. Thank you @OleSlewFoot..

    Hold the Line! If you are not holding the line, abandon your ship. Destruction is inevitable without more to hold the line!
    I never met Connor in person, but I spoke with him on this forum on many occasions. He was one of those people who genuinely sought to help others as often as he could. He seemingly left this world, at an age too young. The world is a lesser place without him here. However I trust God ensured his purpose was fulfilled in this life.

    - Until the next life Brother

    Joe is a great guy....I see why him and Connor were friends. They are like 2 peas in a pod. I've text Joe to see how he's been doing and to see if three are any updates. he's hanging in there.

    Thank you Joe @OleSlewFoot for letting us know.

    One of my favorite pics of Connor... @SR5TRDTUNDRA found it and sent it to me...

    RIP Connor... would have liked to got to know you. I think we would have got along. I have a love for the 80’s 4runners. I’ve owned at least a dozen of them over the years. I’ll enjoy a cold beer in your memory.

    I have never met this gentleman and my heart and prayers go out to him and his family. I feel sad as I have missed an opportunity to exchanging advice, humor and support with this young man. I hope the holidays is not painful for his family and friends.
