Edward Barnett, my friend of 40 + years (you all know him as Swamphawk) has passed away at the age of 48....my heart goes out to his family and loved ones. The world for me will never be the same.

did he have any health issues, other than the obvious based on his food habits?

I never know whether to believe any of the stuff about real life around here.

Last post was early in the AM on 4/30.  It is plausible.

He was on his HBD team on 5/1, but hasn't been seen since.

actually, I was dead serious-I gathered he was large, but you never know-could'a been a car accident, diabetic episode, accident in the home, etc

I just went stalking around FB.

I found this guy.

No there isn't a picture of him.  Right age, right college, and right place to live.

I hope he didn't kill himself.

“Carve your name on hearts, not tombstones. A legacy is etched into the minds of others and the stories they share about you.”

Agree with him or not, he said what he thought.   The loss to this small PIT island of misfit toys will be felt for awhile.
