I'm fucking stunned.  I mean what?  Holy fuck.  :'(

I'm stunned as well.  It seems like just yesterday (even though it was ~9 months ago) when I spoke with critter on the phone about my then-unemployment, and the advice he was giving me on possibly becoming a truck driver. 

He was a really friendly and personable guy, and I will definitely miss him.  I can't believe he's gone.  :'(

This is sad news.  My thoughts and prayers go out to Critter's family and loved ones.
Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Awful news. I didn't know Critter, but I can tell, from the praise of those of you who did, that he was a good guy. My condolences to all who knew him, friends and family alike.

He was a fun and funny guy. I have a fond memory of us having a good laugh when I made some quip about Montesanto's GMO starting a zombie apocalpyse. It turned out, the next day he was driving a load of Montesanto products and he told me not to blame him. It was a great exchange and show a keen wit. Funny the things you remember.

My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.

Wow. That's horrible. I also didn't know the guy well, but he seemed like one of the good ones.

Thanks for posting it, SoM. It's neat that he was a plank owner on the Eisenhower. Wish I had known him more than in passing as an internet alias.

In the obit Debbie is listed as his fiance, not girlfriend. Given his avatar pic at WG this brings even more sadness...  :(
