Geoff Miller, who was on the net for some time, died on
Tuesday May 19 of cancer.
Though it's been about 2-3 years since Geoff posted hereabouts, I appreciate
the fun recollections I have of jousting with him hereabouts for the many
years before then.
He was still somewhat active (probably the most active person, in fact) in
the mostly dormant ba.mountain-folk newsgroup.
His last post in that newsgroup occurred on 1/27/15 in the "Lesbians in
Scott Valley" thread. It was a short reply thanking me about a small tidbit
of information I supplied about how Chinese parents name their children.
Talk about thread drift. That small discussion came about after discussing
Calvin and Hobbes in the same "Lesbians in Scott Valley" thread.
He never once noted (or even hinted about) being serious ill. He seemed to
be in good spirits in most of his posts in that newsgroup.
(Don't know why he dropped off from ba.food, though.)
