Many of you may already know that Nate Nielson "nnenn" died awhile ago (early April) due to a car accident he had a wife and two sons ages 3, and 8. April was a long time ago I know, but no one had said anything about it and I wanted to make it official on these forums (here is the brothers brick post.)

I know you are probably going to be thinking who cares, but I think you will care after you realize he will not be able to build any more of these.

In June at brickworld in Chicago 72 vipers were placed in the missing man formation to commemorate nnenn. here is the brothers brick post.

Many people have built memorials to which included his flickr avatar a rubber band holder including me.

Discuss the death of nnenn and create your own memorials.
Here are mine (I preapologize for there blurriness).

The implication from the above pics is that you light sabred his memorial and then crossed the border to Mexico.

I find the las one slightly offensive.


But in all seriousness he will be missed, I forgot to work in a memorial in 3rd X Lucky but it's not too late...

I did not know him, but as a father I am always sad to hear of another family that has lost a father too soon. :cry:

I also find the last one a bit disturbing.

I wasn't in the Lego online community at the time he was posting stuff, but I've looked through it and it's amazing. It's a shame to lose such an inspirational builder. Condolences to his family as well. R.I.P.

What! That's not how we do things around here! You should have deleted the other ones instead for not being offensive enough by comparison. Unless you meant you deleted it because "slightly" isn't good enough.

Also I'm ticked off that I missed it.

I was not too familiar with nnenn or his work, but his death reminds us of our mortality. The AFOL community is still young, but people will grow older and die, and others will take their places. One day no one will remember this time except in stories and pictures by us.

I have no idea who this dude was but I shall salute and drink to his memory, Slainte Mhath!

Also, anyone even dares to mention that I'm getting old and saying I remind them of their mortality is going to be dead and buried a long time before I die of old age, I shit you not. Cause of death: septicaemia from an ingrown toenail, the one on my big toe, the one that I'll shove right up their arse and ware them like a shoe.

Jesus this is thread about a dead guy.

So let's talk Gary Coleman.

So, my friend walked into the middle of my fourth period and said "Gary Coleman Just died." and then i shouted "Watchoo talkin' about, Willis?" really loudly, and then I got a detention.

I'm not gonna lie, that's pretty terrible of you. Just like the joke about his "time being cut short".

I really couldn't help it. Believe it or not, I'm far less refined and sophisticated in real life than I am on these forums.
