I never really interacted with Tripwire, but I always liked the fact that a guy his age was still so engaged and "with it". This is sad news, but man, what a run.

I think those of us who got to know him are truly better people for it. I got to know him first via SOCNET and PS. Then as I worked on a project with the RICA Rangers he shared some history and stories. Like a true Quiet Professional they were always about the unit, team, individuals but never really about himself as being the center of the story.

RIP Sir
