RIP Old Scout.......

Looks like life's challenges may have gotten the best of Old Scout:

https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/gene...anta-cruz.html

If you don't know who Old Scout is...well he was a moderator here on the IH page, was a very active member a decade ago, and was part of what made Pirate...well Pirate.

Sorry life got out of hand Robert. It was good chatting with you those times we did way back in the day. RIP

OMG, traded pm's since back in the early days of Binderbulletin, and he is the one that pointed me to pirate. Im sad I never got the chance to meet him in person. I always considered him a pretty sharp cookie and in complete control of his life, i can't imagine what took place to bring him to that ending. I do remember that he had mentioned becoming diabetic and getting married not that many years ago and seemed to move into a much more upscale life after marriage. IIRC that is about the same time that he pretty much quit posting here. I wonder what became or what will become of his project Scout.

A friend lost.

The news is a shock, and still worse the pain inflicted on her family and his.

No need to say more.

Wow. This is a total shock. (just see this today).

My father's funeral was on the 17th, so I've been in a bit of a haze/not around here much the last few months (he had Leukemia).

Bob was full of knowledge and a tell it as it is kind of guy....

Thoughts and prayers for everyone involved.

Craptastic. As other said, can't even contemplate or speculate on the why.

As HOS said, he was one of the OG guys that made Pirate what it was back in the day. For better or worse. He may have moved on from this forum a while ago, but he is part if its history.

Thought to His and Her families.

saw the info on Chitchat first. Remember reading threads from him back in HS for years. Never knew the guy but sucks to hear - sounds like a terrible situation


never met any of you guys posting on here, but the crew in this thread (plus a handful of other guys like Tom M and Bill, who I think went to Europe?) gave me hours upon hours of tech to read through and build threads to watch and envy with my scout build. I'm still on here often lurking. I don't know you, but reach out if you've got shit going on. Still consider the Pirate community something 'different' than any other board I've been on

First and foremost, he murdered his his wife, fuck that.
Secondly, he killed himself, yeah that sucks and he was obviously in serious pain but still he had no right to murder his wife.
