I received a pm from Crazyoildude's soulmate. She wanted me to let everyone know that he passed away friday.

Even though i did not know him, I had talked with him on the phone about a few things, and we had pm'd back and forth a few times.

She wanted everyone here to know how much he enjoyed this site, reading and posting with various members.
I did not know until yesterday that his name was also Brian

I am quoting her here;

"If you could just express my appreciation to all of his friends and fellow bloggers for giving him some joy over the last few years. Let them know how much this site meant to him. He loved working on cars, and he loved his oil. He loved to blog here and share his insight as well as learn from his fellow bloggers."

I feel sad knowing he has passed , and I'm glad we had talked. The fact that she wanted me to post and let everyone know, is a testament to the family like feeling of this site and its fantastic members.

I will think of him when i check the oil level of a new bottle on the shelf , or when I look inside a filter to see if it has "louvers" or holes.

I wish the best to his family and they will be in our prayers.

Thank you, Crazyoildude for making this site interesting and fun. I will raise a glass to you , you are a neat guy.


God bless him and everyone here.


Bryan

It's like a fraternity here. Recently whenever I looked at oil filters, I would often think whether or not the louvers would be crazyoildude-approved.

My condolences are with Brian's family during this difficult time.

I don't know if that is him.... The obit doesn't mention him being survived by his daughter and IIRC, he mentioned in a thread last week that he sent her to Walmart to buy some M1 after the dealer put in the wrong grade in a Santa Fe.
