    Aw, man.



    (I think the last we heard from him was June 15th, and then July 4th.)

    I need a hug and a beer and a shoulder to cry on. Fuck...so many questions...and so many things I wish I could've done...fuck, man.

    Shit.

    I don't think I ever spoke to him, even on here, but it's a great shame when someone trying so hard loses his fight anyway.

    Condolences to his loved ones.

    Aw, fuck... we spoke a few times: liked him. Clearly battled a lot of stuff. My sympathies to those who knew him well.

    I'm trying to find out a little more, very tentatively, as I don't want any bullshit about it, just as near to a few facts as possible. but so far all I know is we are awaiting toxicology results and Flecky died sometime over the bank holiday weekend in August.

    What incredibly sad news to wake up to.

    Over the years reading Flecky's posts were always an inspiration. I recall first seeing him on here at the height of his addiction where he knew things were wrong and was taking steps to start getting better, he could barely string a sentence together. Words that rambled, but made a sort of sense. The more he was recovering, the more verbose and the more happy he was that the fog in his mind was lifting. Hell, I remember cheering loudly at work when he announced that after ages he finally got feeling in his legs. Over the years he was a huge inspiration to me and many Whitechapel folk on here to fucking fight those demons head on. Hell, he still is.

    Rest in Peace, Fleck.

    I haven't been on here in a very long time. But I feel I need to be here to add my voice to those mourning fleckys passing. During my own battles with depression and general life stuff flecky was always a welcome voice of support and reason. His way of referring to people as "mate" made me feel like I was special and there was so one out there rooting for me.

    RIP mate. I'll miss you.

    Flecky and I only spoke a couple of times, but he was kind and supportive of me and my troubles even when he was neck deep in his own. He was a good guy. I'll miss him.

    Augh. Sorry to hear this. Didn't interact much with him but he always seemed nice.
  6.  (11411.12)
    Ohh fuck. :( Kind, weird and intense guy, always a pleasure to read his flight of association in here, was really rooting for him and trying to send all the good brainwaves so he could go on with the fight.

    Damn :/

    Christ.

    I've pretty much all but quit WC, but, fuck, we're still something of a family. I know we were all so proud of him, and I was always happy to read when he was doing better.
    He was family, and he'll be missed.

    Yeah, RIP, Flecky. Didn't know you well and I haven't been around much lately, but like Brit said, we're still some weird sort of family here. The WC flag is at half-mast today.

    I think it's worth remembering how hard he worked to stay in the world. He worked hard for a long time. Respect, and rest, flecky.

    Aw damn. Just... dammit, I'll miss him...
  8.  (11411.19)
    Fuck man. Yeah, R.I.P.

    Shit. I'm going to be missing him along with everyone else. He did so much and worked so hard to improve his life and beat addiction. And here in Whitechapel, he was always listening and providing support. He meant a lot to this place.

    Fuck, mate, I wish you could've stuck around. The world's a little dimmer without you.
