His personal struggle, documented over several years in the BR, was an intimate and immediate source of inspiration.
Exactly. He went through a lot but never complained which was always an inspriation to see. Rest in peace you adorable jack-booted thug!
Honestly, that's the way I've always thought about it. He never gave up and never took anything for granted. His spirit and I guess dignity were honestly a major inspiration in my life. I'm glad he decided to share part of his time with us. He was seriously just a cool guy
Same here. I'm still at a loss for words regarding his passing, though I had suspected it was coming for a while. Just to read about what he'd been through with absolutely bo complaint is awe inspiring. The man had courage and class.

Mallory was an ever present reminder that behind every username on this board there is a real person leading a very real life. Some of those people are facing some very difficult problems. Some of those people are absolutely incredible. Mal fitted in both categories. His courage and unwavering good humour in the face of adversity was an inspiration; this board, and the world outside it, is the poorer for his passing.
This bears quoting. Travel well, Mallory. Thanks for sharing some precious time with us.

Oh wow, I had no idea. He was always a nice, funny fellow. He will be missed.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Rest in Peace, John.
You were a wonderful contribution to our Board and you were a long-time friend to me.
I know you suffered for a long time and you battled back so many times against great odds.
You were beyond brave.

My condolences to Mrs. Mallory and your wonderful children.

I remember when he took over from Richard (or was it Lord Garth's watch?)
Mine and Garth's. Garth wanted to transfer forums and Mallory transferred over to the forum. Can't tell you the time frame though, but I think it might have been around 2004/5.

Mallory was a true class act.
Reading through all the many words of condolence he's received, this is the one that sticks out as ringing most true to my own impression of the Mallory I saw on the board. Fair, even, clear, definite, honourable... yes, a class act.

It makes the choice of smilie that now bears his name so very appropriate.

RIP "Ensign" Mallory

cultcross has summed it up pretty well, as many others have. Having lost several family members to cancer, and gone through some nasty depression in my younger days, I was really glad to share Mallory's friendship and fellowship. He will be missed.

I actually came across a couple of goofy photos we took together back when I met him in 2004 when unpacking a box. Maybe I should scan them and post them.
Please, please do.

He was super fun to meet and hang with. He introduced me to several of Oregon's microbrewery beers that day.
Today, the one thing I have thought of more than anything else is chatting with him before my flight home last June to visit family and saying very casually that we should get together sometime at one of those establishments and have a few brews ... but it just didn't work out. I was tied up with family the whole week ... and I thought there would be time ....

And, because I am the Star Trek geek that I am, what keeps coming to mind is Soran's line from Generations: "They say time is the fire in which we burn. .... We leave so many things unfinished in our lives."

I have worked hard most of my adult to stop regretting things I have done and not done, but this I regret very, very much.

Understood.

Two weeks from now, it will be Go Trojans!

I'm sure he'll be looking down wondering what the hell happened to his Beloved Ducks.
