He was mostly (snort) pleasant and intelligent to interact with, but he also didn't seem afraid to express his full opinion, including the occasional digital punch when he felt it was warranted. On the other side, like Tilt said, SINC was quick and generous with providing help to friends, including me, when we needed it.

I "met" Don through ehMac, but also got to know him somewhat through his St. Albert's Place (SAP) creation. We both enjoyed art, Jazz/Blues music and photography. Don was nice enough to send me a couple rare blues recordings for my listening pleasure. I was more than happy to share some of my photos (possibly some art too ) that I thought his SAP "Birdies" might be interested to see. Most recently, I was happy to provide to provide Don/SAP with some Canadian business operations information, yet another common interest.

Speaking of SAP, I always thought that Don's SAP was an amazing and impressive accomplishment - just how diligently and long he kept that site going for all his followers around the globe. Kudos to Don for that.

Having so many common interests and living only 3 hours away, I always intended to meet him for a coffee or beer in person one day, but unfortunately, I didn't make it happen before it was too late. My bad.

Cheers to Don, he is missed!

Yes Don helped me out as well. A replacement eMac at a point in time when I really could not afford a new replacement iMac.

That's such sad news. He was a cornerstone of our dwindling community, and will be missed.

Thanks for sharing Macfury.

OMG, I had no idea!

I just found this thread and I am rocked by this news. 2020 is truly the worst year in my lifetime.

I had many online/private conversations with Don... he was quite a character and a good man. I had hoped to meet up with him one day. He was very kind to me in his writings.
So sad.

RIP Don.

Thanks for posting. I did not know he had passed away. He helped me on many occasions with my questions. I'll miss seeing his name at the end of his replies.

With the recent posting of obituaries on this forum, it strikes me that no obituary was ever formally and publicly posted for SINC, who passed away on June 21 at age 75.

Thanks for posting the notice, but I thought his daughter had done so according to some e-mails I had with his daughter shortly after his death. Maybe just at "the Shang" thread that not all members seem to read.

Definitely an interesting individual who did so much for the community In forums and with his long running St. Albert's Place (mybirdie.ca) blog.

I miss them all.

Don't miss just Don, but the Sunday Whatzit as well.

Will try not to make a habit of this but will toss this one out just to help keep the memories alive.

Ahhhhhghhh... the love hate relationship with challenging and often time-wasting Whatzits.... and I thought I had broken my habit...
I will definitely try and give this one some thought...

It almost reminds me of some of the things I have ordered from China that got destroyed and barely survived coming through their various shipping methods and mail... ;-)

Sorry to hear the news.
I haven't been around much but I think SINC was one of the cornerstones of the good old days of ehMac.
May he rest in peace.
