    One of our unicyling guy passed away

    hello,

    I am a good friend of gnein and recently he passed away, and i thought that you guys would like to know... and i will send how many people have read this and how many people reply this to show how this guy was loved.....

    If you look up the unicycle part of this site you will see that he was a very active member and he did a good job at it, he has the most posts and the most read and replys in that category...

    Jacque was a student at the University of Moncton, he was 20 and he participated in alot of sport two of them that where Mountain biking and Unicycling, he was a fast learner, specialy for the unicycle, there was no one around to teatch him but he read up and watched some movie and in 6 monts he was going up stars and doing drop, he alos did some mountain unicyling.... all i have to say is that he was a great guy and that we will all miss him.

    Sebastien......J

    Thank you, Sebastien. I hope you will let his friends and family know that we all considered him a friend. Sometimes he had some really goofy, funny posts, too (one thing I liked about him.)

    Gnein was a great guy, he offered to help run the unicycling forum here, and i know he has helped out quite a few of us dabble in unicycling. He will be missed. I give my condolences to his family.

    He portrayed a happy person here at the forums, and memories of happy people or moments are always more moving than memories of sad moments or people. Thank you for telling us all, we will certainly miss our fellow forum user.
    Booyah!!

    It pains me to lose a "good friend I never met." Since I was 12 years old before I could balance a bicycle, I have alot of respect for unicyclists!

    I read and enjoyed several of his posts whilst browsing the site.

    My thoughts go out to his family.
