He was an awesome guy who had a lot of wit and charm. He added a lot to ehmac. I wish I had known him better, but I am lucky to have known him on here for a few years. RIP Macnutt.

You can start here.

Just reading through some of these brought back memories.

I can't believe that in a couple of months, it will be 5 years already.

In a nutshell, Macnutt was a very outspoken member of ehMac, especially in regards to politics and other topics, but he almost always kept it friendly, and had well thought out posts. He was also a very kind fellow, sending me and other ehMac members some gifts and neat items... just because he was a friendly guy. Just don't ever make fun of his name MacNutt. Had nothing to do with being a "Mac Nut", it was his real last name, which he took great pride in.

He had a phrase he always used... which was "Trust Me".

As you can gather from the beginning of this thread, tragically he died much to soon in a freak accident.

He will always be remembered on ehMac.

Just a heads up everyone....

In 2 days, on May 25th, 2011 at 3:05 am, it will be the 5th anniversary of our friend MacNutt's last post on ehMac.ca.

I think it'd be fitting to do something in his honour and I've been meaning to find a more special way to remember Gerry.

I know when I was in high school, they had an annual athletic award the was named in honour and memoriam of someone who was a very prominent figure to the school and the community.

I was thinking of something similar, like an annual Gerry MacNutt award given to a valuable member of the community each year or something like that, but I'm open to ideas.

The important thing is a remembrance of Gerry.

I just checked to see if Gerry's fotopage is still there - yes indeed it is. He joined the site at about the same time I did way back when. I stopped using the site a few years ago. Nice memories though.

Thanks, TD. It's nice to be able to put a face to the personality.

As I go through these pages this morning, the wound is opened afresh.

It's been 5 years, old friend.

Still thinking of you...
