    Just noted the sticky and remember the time when he'd post in forums before it all got too busy.

    Just logged in for the first time after quite a few years absence only to see the message pop up.

    Very sorry to hear the news. He created quite a place here and will be remembered fondly by many.

    ill post as a very very long standing member that remembers the battles between OCS and OCUk nearly 20 years ago...

    i read it but didnt really believe it...............you might not admire the man for of the things he said over years but you have to god damn admire him for what he built up and what he achieved!!!!

    just shows you enjoy the time with you family while you can as even money cant change fate

    It's still hard to believe he is gone. But he's left a legacy in OcUK which will live on forever. :cool:

    I can remember the forums being closed down 24hr on the anniversary of 9/11. A while ago now but I think that was Spie who thought it should be a time for thought

    Just came in to pay my respects, I have shopped at and visited the OcUK website for years since it opened.

    Thank you Spie.

    So sad to hear this was always kind to me when I saw him, such a hard working giving gentleman taken away far too soon. Rest in peace.

    I've logged in today for the first time in a long time, had a browse and noticed this thread. I know some time has passed since he died, but no words can express how sorry i am for yours and your families loss. I remember your father from way back when i first joined the forums and his was a name that i've always remembered since.

    So sorry to hear this news. I haven’t visited this forum for a very long time and I’m so sad to see this thread.

    I was around here back before the big nuke (Oct 2002) and remember many interactions with Spie, although I don’t think we always saw eye to eye I had a good deal of respect for him.
