Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Shocking news. My sincerest condolences to his family.
We are worse off without you

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Mallory was a unique person and I feel very fortunate to have gotten to know him during my time on the board, and especially as a mod.

I feel very lucky to have served as a mod with him. While he didn't say much, if anything, about his battle with cancer out here, in the briefing room he pulled the curtain back and allowed us to be part of his fight.

From its return, through chemo, through a bone marrow transplant, through a clean bill of health, and through its return again and his ultimate passing, he displayed a grace and courage that was inspirational. I don't think he once asked for our pity or sorrow, nor did he expect it. He was in the fight to win and had done it twice but cancer wouldn't take the hint.

The word inspirational sometimes gets thrown around lightly. Mallory was, without intending to be, an inspiration. His love for his family, his pride in his kids' accomplishments, and his steadfast resolve to beat cancer into submission made up the man.

The board and the world shine a bit less brightly with his passing.

Godspeed Mallory, and watch out for exploding rocks.

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.

I liked to tease him about the time my school, Colorado State, beat Oregon in a bowl game. He was shocked that they could have done that!

He was an Oregon Ducks fan.

He was shocked a lot over the years....

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

I also thought this was about him stepping down as mod. Thought he'd beaten his cancer too.

R.I.P.

His last post was exactly two months ago.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Mallory was a great person who faced his illness with aplomb and grace. His honesty, his humor, and his courage gave me an amazing insight into a struggle that I couldn't even begin to imagine otherwise. Someone else said that he never got bogged down with negativity, and that's so very true. He did have his ups and his downs but he never pitied himself. I feel very lucky to have known him, and just very, very sad that he's gone now.

The place won't be quite the same without him. My thoughts are with his family, I hope they're doing okay.

Because of him, I was always rooting for the Ducks when they weren't playing Cal. If there is anyone who should be used to being shocked over the years, it's Cal fans.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

These news made me really sad. He was a great guy. I have not been very active these last years but I have fond memories of our interaction in this board when we were new here.

If his family reads this, I want to pass my sincere condolences.

Re: We have lost TrekBBS moderator Mallory.

Very saddened at this news. I've noticed his absence in the Admiral's Lounge over the last several weeks and have been fearing the worst. He was a very funny guy; some of my best sig lines over the years have been quotes from Mallory (usually after he'd had a drink or two ). We have sons the same age and would often commiserate on the woes of dealing with teenage boys. I'll miss him greatly.

Cal fans should be "used to being shocked"? They should be used to getting worked like a rib..



I hope someday his family will get a chance to read all these posts, and get a little insight into what he was doing online all those hours. He certainly had an impact here in the virtual world, People genuinely cared for him, and respected him.
