RIP and Semper Fi.

TrapLine 17 May 2016 23:21

Rest in peace, SOTB. Prayers out for his family.

Murph 17 May 2016 23:32

FUCK! Fair winds/following seas/Semper Fi, brother. He has no equal.

Dumas77 18 May 2016 00:28

I recall the honor I felt when SOTB responded to one of my first posts.

And as I read these tributes to him, I still find myself expecting any moment to see his avatar pop up in this thread.

A part of the very soul of socnet has passed on and things will never quite be the same.

RIP Warrior! You had a hell of a ride!

GreenGuy 18 May 2016 02:53


RIP, I have long enjoyed your posts SOTB, and the Pinky Test is something I will never be able to forget (for better or worse).


Linda1961 18 May 2016 05:01

Rest in Peace SOTB. My condolences and prayers to/for family and friends.

RIP man. I never had a chance to meet face to face but had a few good PM conversations. See you on the other side.

There will be a hole in Socnet now...

[QUOTE=Doc P;1058563733]Looking back through some old threads. Andy watched the movie "Odd Thomas" based on my recommendation that it was good. 8654Marine agreed, but SOTB did not....hence, "[I]I submit that the two other posters in this thread have had their accounts stolen or hacked by chicks. We should seriously consider an immediate ban of these two, for their own protection....[/I]"


Haha. We got a good laugh on that one.

GPC 18 May 2016 09:18

Post #3435 one of my favorite post he ever did.


Maas 18 May 2016 09:35


He's going to be missed a lot.


Bryan 18 May 2016 12:06

Rest in Peace Mr. Potts

grog18b 18 May 2016 13:55

My sadness is beyond words. I've been away from the I net for a few days, and came back to this. I've shared many similar views as Andy, and would have been honored to have served with him. I'm shaking, and it's hard to type. We all have a limited time on this earth, and I know Andy made the best of his. I'd like to write much more, but Andy would think it's GAY and tell me to drive on, so... RIP Bro, and I'll always be your clorox bearer. All my respect, GROG

Well that sucks.

RIP Marine

This one? Vintage SOTB.


sf-doc 18 May 2016 19:41

RIP Andy

CV 18 May 2016 19:42

#3438 will live in infamy for me. I still laugh when I read it.

[QUOTE=GPC;1058563809]Post #3435 one of my favorite post he ever did.


^^ This was one where he and I actually agreed for the [i]same[/i] reasons. I had a response in mind which I'm sure he would have found funny were he still with us, but out of respect for the situation, I'll refrain from posting it in [i]this[/i] thread.

poison 18 May 2016 20:34

Wait wtf? How did I miss this? I got into it a few times with him, mostly about Israel, but he was always a gentleman when I PM'd him for some reason or other. He was posting here very recently, that really, really sucks.

My condolances to his family.

Fuck cancer.

Bingo King 18 May 2016 20:44

he called me on a lame sailor/marine joke when I was relatively new to the board....and then turned right around and gave me some good advice on a couple of things based on his expertise. Always wanted to meet him in person and never got the chance. RIP Marine.

crapstash 18 May 2016 20:58

Sorry to hear this. Rest in Peace brother. I hope his family gets through this as best as they can. Especially his daughter, he spoke of her quite often.

Thanks for the quality discussion over the years.

Fair Winds and Following Seas, Marine.

Opie62 18 May 2016 22:15

Jesus, can't believe this... R.I.P. SOTB

Shark0311 19 May 2016 00:38

It won't be the same without him; I barely knew the guy and yet I enjoyed his diatribe and advice immensely.

Look. Don'tTouch. 19 May 2016 01:13

It's awesome to see folks posting up their favorite quotes by Andy.

Hostile0311 19 May 2016 05:22

RIP Bro. Fair Winds and Following Seas. Semper Fidelis.
