Default RIP Dingfod

sad news. Dingfod passed away this morning while having a nap. He and I used to scrap, but we eventually made peace and we followed each other on FB. I always liked the stories he would post about his life. He seemed like quite the character and I will miss him. His daughter posted this on FB...

Hey family and friends,

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but my Dad, Warren, passed away this morning between 9:20-11am during a nap. I just found out about an hour ago and I'm in complete shock.

For those of you who don't know, he has been struggling with a severe bout of alcoholism for well over a year now, which landed him in critical care this past summer.

He wasn't a religious man, so please no prayers. Just kind words and thoughts as we try to get through this. Thank you

Damn. I almost met him once, & we talked (very) briefly on the phone.

Goodbye, Walter P. Dinsford.

Thanks for posting this. I thought I was FB friends with him, but apparently not, just saw his posts on the FF group.

I'm going to miss him, too.

O damn. I felt that I knew him from all his posts over the years. He certainly had a lot on his plate. I know his wife used to post here also.

I went looking through Dingfod's post history because, while he hadn't posted much in recent years (like everyone else), and he was terser when he did, he really was one of the smartest, quickest witted people here. I was actually looking for examples of him kicking everyone's asses at wordplay and stuff, but the examples are too spread out to really link to. So trust me on that, I guess.

I did, however, find a "Where were you" thread where he talked about his life in a few incredibly vivid snapshots, and I thought you guys might like to see it.

I never got to meet him, but he and Godfry waited for an hour for me at the bar and I didn't show up. I can't remember why, I think I just forgot about it. Too f'n bad because I really liked the guy. He had a lot to do with sparking my interest in motorcycles. Rest well Dingfod.

Warren was quite candid about the fact that his demons were getting the better of him in recent times, but he was always one of the good guys. Meeting him at one of those old time IIDB meetups in Denver many years ago will remain a treasured memory.

The world is a measurably lesser place without him.

Wow, that's some really sucky news. I noticed a while ago he hadn't been posting after the thread he started about his problems with drinking, and I was hoping he was getting his life back on track. Alcohol...fuck you, man.

I never had the opportunity to meet Dingfod in RL, but he's one of the people on :ff: that when he was the last one to post to a thread, I would click on that first just to see what he had to say. I recall some great conversations about motorcycles, dealing with kids, how to kill a thread, the woiks.

Rest in peace Warren. :tiphat:

Warren's wife hasn't posted here in years but left this as a "visitor message" on her own profile; re-posting here because I'm sure her intent was for it to be seen by all, but removing surname for privacy.

Hello everyone, it been awhile....
It is with a heavy heart, that I tell you that my partner in life, Warren aka Dingfod, passed away this morning. Taking a nap on the couch. He has had such good times on this board and made such great friends. Thank you all for your your friendship. Inland Wave, Gloria
