As has been posted in the Aviation thread, it is fitting here as well.

R.I.P. LT. Stouffer. Your stories provided a source of inspiration for us all.

I was actually just about to post a similar picture.

RIP Lieutenant47. You're sailing with the angels now.

Oh man, I am so sad to hear the Lieutenant has passed. I really enjoyed his posts and the interaction I had with him. RIP good sir.

That was sudden. RIP, indeed. From the read of the obit, it sounds like he might not rest too much in the afterlife. :)

OK so here's a thought. While none of us has his depth or longevity of life experience it was his tales of old that truly enthralled us.

In his memory why not take a day or two to think back to the most amazing thing that has ever happened in your life and then share it here? Be totally honest with yourself and all your fellow FGers. Why?

Because most of us who enjoyed his anecdotes came to the conclusion that he was truly badass. If we are all honest we can compare our lives thus far and perhaps use his as an inspiration to work that bit longer, aim that bit higher, try that bit harder, push that bit further and on the whole live our lives just that bit closer to the edge. Don't dive in with the first thing that comes to mind. Give it some proper thought like he would have done.

That way we'll all be able to enthrall the grandkids and hopefully inspire the Final Gear member of 2032* and beyond!

*I'll be 63 by then. It seemed appropriate.

That's a great idea. I assume, though, that by "here" you mean this forum and not this thread. But yeah, create a new thread and I'll have a story or two to share by tomorrow night.

If anyone is interested to read why he earned the title of the 'most interesting man in the world' then read this post in the NSFW section. It sums him up better than any of us could.

Damn, ever give rep to a dead man? :(

:cry: Godspeed, good sir.

I really hope someone can go through his posts and compile all of his best stories. I know I haven't ventured in the NSFW section too often, but I know he did.

Definately a good idea, has such a thread been made?

Just goes to show how fragile life is, and how it can be gone in an instant. RIP and may his family be comforted by knowing he had such great friends here.
