I'm sad to report that SteveDCA died some time ago (March 2015).

Back in the mid aughts I became friends with him IRL - we'd met and chatted both here and on another board, and struck up a friendship.

Well, life got the better of me, and I found a significant other and SteveDCA and I lost touch. I Googled him a couple of days ago to see what he was up to, and saw that he was gone. While he wasn't as prolific a poster as some of us were/are, he did seem to have a PhD in United Airlines, and contributed positively in these parts.

RIP, Steve.

He will certainly missed! I remember him very well. I met him on my flight. He flew with me. He flew out ZRH-ATL.

Sorry for your loss; and a loss to the Delta forum, and Flyertalk family.

Sad news from the Marriott Bonv°y Forum.

Marriott closing down Marriott Insiders (MRI) - refugees thread (Post # 28)

RIP, BrightlyBob ​​. 🙏 💚

P.S. Who does one notify to have the In Memoriam title added below a decedent's username? Do we ​​​​​tell SanDiego1K , our Community Director​​​​​? This will become more common as the years go by, and it would be good to have an established procedure for survivors or fellow members to notify the forum of a FlyerTalker's demise.

I'm the one who does it. I've now added it to BrightlyBob's profile. He was last on FlyerTalk on August 11 2020. It's always sad to lose a member.

I was saddened to learn mumielein passed away a few days ago. Although she only posted a few times on FlyerTalk I met her a couple of times at FT/VFT DOs and know she had many friends among FlyerTalkers.

We met Michael at a Do and subsequently bumped into him twice at airports at home and abroad.

He was a kind man with a great sense of humor and we will miss him.
