I used to have some great exchanges with the guy a while back and I always respected him for sticking to his guns - even if he WAS just playing devil's advocate he had his opinions and that was middle ground for him.

A very genuine person who will be missed!

I just talked to Bruce on the phone and expressed my (and all of our) condolences for their loss. I also let him know how to find this thread and what kind of response it was getting. He seemed understandably sad, but also somewhat comforted by the number of people who have called to express how sad they are about Gerry's passing.

Apparently there is going to be a memorial on Salt Spring but they have not set a date as yet.

Wow. I have no words.

Rest in peace.

I had hoped to make it out to Salt Spring Island to buy some of that water from MacNutt. I think his heaven must be place a lot like SSI... although governed by a Conservative majority of course.

I'll trust him on that...

Others have said it all before, but I'll miss Gerry's ability to make me go, "Hmmm." Though I often disagreed with his political stances, I always admired his well-thought-out positions, even if they were designed to prick and irritate one's own comfortable preconceptions.

I'll be sipping a wee dram in his memory when I get home tonight. Perhaps the best indication of his true impact on everyone here is the obvious and large hole his passing has already left in our collective soul.

Macnutt joined ehMac just over 4 years ago, and it's been a good 4 years. Gerry was most definitely a bit controversial figure with his penchance for anecdotal posts it made the feeling very friendly. I know I'll miss him, and did notice his absence the past few months while he's been busy with his water business.

I always wanted to meet Gerry and held out hope he'd be able to make it to an ehMac: Calgary meet that he helped create interest in. We owe you a toast in your memory our next meet.

To you Gerry, and your unstoppable faith in those around you, I salute you. You will be sorely missed.
I still remember Macnutt.

The most important aspects of life are how you live it and whether you make a difference. In the microcosm of electronic life on this board, MacNutt made a difference and lived life hard and fast. His participation on the ehMac board had declined over the past few months, his business was doing well and he at last had politicians in power he respected. In many ways, he left this earth at the top of his game. Too soon, by far, but hopefully without suffering and with adrenaline in his veins.

A most fitting epitaph, Jim. Gerry would have agreed with you on this one.
