In Memoriam

Atriot and DM commenter Darryl Pearce died on February 19th, and I am utterly heartbroken, weeping. 

Beloved father and husband, Darryl Glen Pearce passed away unexpectedly on Feb. 19, 2008.

Darryl was born in Lancaster, Calif., July 19, 1960, to Darryl Sr. and Veronica Pearce. Darryl lived in Camarillo for 15 years with his wife and two sons. Among his many interests, he actively participated in Civil War re-enactments. He enjoyed hiking, cooking and whenever possible, catching a ride aboard a tall-masted ship.

In lieu of flowers...

Oh, jeez, I hadn't read Atrios comments in forever. I hadn't heard he was sick, if he was sick at all.

I didn't even know him that well, and it still feels like quite a shock... :(

Man, this shit is totally fucked up. A fucking shame.

Godspeed. . .

Dang, that's a loss. Sorry you're taking it so hard, friend. You're a good guy, Pritsky.

Long time since we connected; drop me a line if you like.

Another picture from his site, a bit more light hearted.

One of my favorite posters. One of the few I would actually slow down and read every word. Great sense of humor, great intellect and very spot-on in such a spartan way.

Very sorry to hear about this. Good-humoured, intelligent comments.
There's also a note about him at Orcinus too.

Hey, NTodd, I'm so sorry.

It's been a rough year for you. Please take good care of yourself, kiddo.

Damn. I looked forward to Darryl's comments because they were unpredictable and always, always interesting. Born in 1960? Damn, I was born in 1948. It just isn't FAIR. R.I.P., Darryl; we'll miss you.

Todd, it was good to see an updated picture of you. You've lost some weight and have a little more gray in your beard than you used to, but I see you still like to wear funny little hats. The rifle in your hand is a little alarming though, especially for a usually peaceful individual, but perhaps you are getting ready to put a shot between W's eyes (which I do not consider a violent act but an act of mercy for the rest of the country) or maybe the vermin in your yard are just out of control.

Mort - I'm going to shoot you with my musket, take your wife and kids as my own, and remember you fondly on the the first anniversary, though my memories of you will fade over time.
