View Full Version : Life The Loss of a Great Friend

I am truly bummed right now as I received a phone call tonight that my best friend in Japan passed away yesterday. He had a heart attack in his sleep and was found by his wife when he didn't get up in the morning. He leaves behind five children.
It is so very sad. He was the hardest working soul that I had ever came across. He took time out of his life whenever I was in Toyama to make sure that i had a home cooked meal (away from home) at his house, played taxi driver, and always shared his knowledge and abilities with me. I am flatly stunned. He was only 41 years old.
He worked more hours in a year than most of us work in two years. I know that his hard work and long hours took him from this earth early.
Please, please, please, do not do this to your family and friends. Take the time and ensure that you live a good, long life and stay on this earth for your families.

God Bless you and RIP, Koji Tanaka-san

Dan,

Really sorry to hear hear of your loss. 41, wow. That's just WAY too young. 5 kids makes this much worse. Thanks for reminding everyone how important it is to take care of themself. I can't even imaging leaving my son behind now or any point in the near future.

My heart goes out to you. Its never easy losing someone you care about. At least he passed painlessly in his sleep. Im sure hes gone on to a better place where the stress of this economy he will no longer have to bear.

That's too young for anyone to die, but especially someone with 5 kids to take care of.

Many thanks to all of you here at CP. It is comforting. Tanaka-san didn't smoke or drink ever. 41 years old....It is too hard to get my mind around.

It's pretty funny and this thread is old so I'm gonna give you a pass. Post more and we'll see how it works out.

Keep your politics in D.C. or you will be gone though.

Looks like a dupe, and is another example of why I would not last as a mod. He would already be gone~

Dan,

Several things here,
1). Sorry to hear of the lost of your friend.
2). Sorry I just found this thread, as late as it was
3). Sorry about the idiot playing within this thread.

Peace be with you, friend.

There's no rush. If he's an idiot he'll reveal himself. The joke is offensive and I'm a friend of Dan but enough time has passed that it's moderately funny.

Dude might turn into pure entertainment. You never know around here.

That is why it takes someone of your mentality to be a mod. I tend to be hot headed and Dan (mainly on here) is also a friend of mine. My reaction would be to shit can the clown. He may indeed turn out to be a productive member as I have watched some come in here starting out like trolls and later knocking it off and blending in. As I have already said he would have not had the chance with me~

You know, I'll leave it up to Dan actually. It's his thread and his friend.

There's no doubt the joke was distasteful and disrespectful and all signs point to this guy being a troll.

But it's not like he posted the joke during the grieving process.

Dan, sry for you loss. I must have missed this thread when it happened. You're right, one need not work all the time. You gotta stop and smell the roses. Enjoy life. Sounds like he was a great friend.

As for the troll, even if the mods choose to not perma-ban him now, I think a little temp. ban would be appropriate. Just my .02.

No, you didn't miss anything. I just find it hard to believe some random guy registered as Barak Fan 2012 on a Chiefs board, searched for an old thread and started trolling it. In either case, I would ban that account and any other ones associated with it (if they exist).
