I have very sad news. Rabinoz has passed away.
« on: August 02, 2020, 09:46:05 PM »
His son reached out to a few of the members he was messaging with.  Just shocking news.

He was a true giant of this forum.   His contribution to the discussion was immense.  He was brilliant, kind and decent man who lived a very long and very interesting life and we are diminished by his loss.

That is very sad. Awesome sparring partner in a debate, still the gentlemen.

I wish his family the best at such an awful time. 2020 sure is a horrible year

RIP rabinoz. Worthy of admiration no matter what you believed

RIP Rab. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

As I said to his son over a PM, I respected Rab for always educating others. And this makes me so sad, even though I did not know the guy in real life. If you have contact with someone on a forum for a few years you still get to know them. Computers are wonderful for that.

Ron was an educated man. A stubborn man. An honest man. A very good man.

His intelligence was obvious and overbearing.
His sense of humor was there for anyone who took a moment to notice. He never faltered or equivocated. He was perfectly comfortable presenting himself as an authority.

Engineer, professor and scientist.
Husband, father and family man.

Ron was a real friend.
Tons of PM's.

I will miss him.

We are experiencing deep sadness of this sad news.

Undoubtedly, Ron was one of the members who brought quality to this forum. He was also one of the members I enjoyed the most when debating here. Of course, like any other creature, he would die.

He was one of the most stubborn warriors I have ever seen and known. He struggled by lay down his life to his fight. He never gave up but always had a word to say.

Forasmuch as it hath pleased Almighty God of his great mercy to take unto himself the soul of our dear brother here departed, we therefore commit his body to the ground; earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust; in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection to eternal life, through our Lord Jesus Christ; who shall change our vile body, that it may be like unto his glorious body, according to the mighty working, whereby he is able to subdue all things to himself.

Rest in peace, at least after now, great warrior!

I think this is all we know:
Signed, Rabinoz, at present in private room 14 Greenslopes Private Hospital and NOT looking forward to coming biopsies!

Damn, get well soon and hope to get a good result!
The good news: The cardiologist says my heart's in pretty good shape.
The not so good news: The specialist called in yesterday was an oncologist - hence this biopsy.

I'm shocked. He only lived a couple of hours drive from me.

Rab was one of the first members I exchanged PMS with when I joined this forum. He enjoyed this forum being an excuse to increase his knowledge.

Not once did I ever see him take a backward step in his viewpoints. Always the gentleman, not once did I ever see him miss an opportunity to express his viewpoint.

...until this week :(

To a member who always stayed true to his word: You will be missed.

Perhaps a memorial thread for such a long dear member is in order?

This is Jan here, Ron's wife.  He was in hospital for 4 weeks.  The biopsy showed he had signet ring carcinoma, a particulary nasty one.  On Wednesday the renal doctor said he had about a week, but he deteriorated over Friday night, and died early on Saturday afternoon.

We have all been reading the very kind comments you have made about Ron and appreciating them very much.  We miss him so much.

What did he die of?

As hinted at by that last post of dad's, the root cause of his symptoms turned out to be cancer. Well advanced, and inoperable.

We appreciate all of your kind words... in particular the respect given both from those who agreed with dad, and those who were wrong 🤗

My deepest condolences to you jan and tab. My thoughts are with you.

It's unbelieveable how fast things can go from it's all fine to the worst possible outcome. It's shocking to witness how brittle our existence in this world can be.

I wish you all the best and hope you can recover quickly from your loss!

Rab was omnipresent here, it seemed like, always ready to share the wealth of knowledge he had accumulated over a lifetime of learning. Thoughtful, persistent, funny, and always very well formatted!

We were all fortunate to have him in our collective lives. He will be remembered fondly as much as he will be missed dearly.

I have argued with rab so many times, and I teased him a lot, but he always had such a great sense of humor about all of it! I will miss him tremendously. He was funny and sweet and stubborn.
I'm sorry. Am I to understand that when you have a boner you like to imagine punching the shit out of Tom Bishop? That's disgusting.

My sincere condolences also, Jan and Tab. Thank-you both for taking the time to share with us. That was a lovely gesture, and this forum is something he was certainly very passionate about.

His spirit has been summoned to the land where our ancestors have gone before us. Instead of mourning our loss, let's celebrate his life.

May our prayers be with you all.
