RIP VTE

Recommended Posts

Thought 1 - I realized is that I never even got to know the guy outside of his wit, swift use of the ban hammer (receiver of said ban hammer once), and his everlasting love of his dog(s). Come to think of it, I haven't really gotten to know anyone on this board. There have been opportunities to meet with Supe, Fox, and Freon but logistically things just didn't work out. Maybe one day I can shake the hands of the screen names here.

Thought 2 - "GFY" just won't be the same anymore.

Thought 3 - neither will SCRAPBOOKING

Thought 4 -or shoe shopping

I do believe I've found his very first ever banning. See screen shot.

I just spent some time on VT's profile and let me just say: "Wow, what an awesome guy!"

I suggest that all of the "newbies" like me do the same and at least go through every "like" post to get a feel for what an interesting, funny, and astonishing human being he displayed to this board over the years.

This is truly sad news. VT, his family, and friends will be in my prayers.

I need to do this, I have read some of his posts... RIP VT

I enjoyed reading all the tributary comments from everyone. Very well said on all fronts. And someone MUST be cutting onions in here.

I swear, WI must have exported its onion cuttings to CA for disposal this morning.

Hey guys,


It's been a while. Road Guy sent me an email to let me know that VTE had passed. What awful news and a terrible loss. While I've been scarce around here for a few years I will still miss the the opportunity to read some of his stories and witty humor. I hope everyone else is doing okay, other than this terrible news. From reading this thread I gathered that he moved to North Dakota? I assume to work in the oil/gas industry? I know he had a rough few years. I hope he now has some peace.

reading through the HOF thread

I ran with all my might and jumped on the sled. I'm really flying down the hil, until.....OH FUCK! I'm heading for a rock sticking out of the ground. I hit the rock, got some air, and was thrown from my snowy chariot.

I proceeded to roll the rest of the way down the hill. Unbeknownst to me, sometime during that chaos, I released a steaming batch of trouser chutney right into my snug fitting long johns.

I will be spending the rest of my afternoon looking for more VTE stories
