I just wanted to pass along info that Lounge Member cooncatbob (Robert Harold Smith, 56, of Carmichael, California) passed away on April 9, 2012. He had been a member here since 2/2007. I did not know him and was uncertain where to post this, since he seemed to post in several of the forums areas here?!
The Sacramento County Coroner's Office website verifies his passing.
Bob was also a very respected member of many razor and shaving internet forums and was an extremely skilled artisan whose razor-handle creations were legendary among enthusiasts and collectors!
He seems to have been well liked by all. If you read Post #140 of the Badger & Blade link above -- it appears that he was cremated with no services held and at present no obituary has been written... People just seem to be learning of this, but I didn't see anything here about him on tFL.
Thanks -- I just wanted someone to know.
