• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Goodbye Eric aka PatentAppliedFor

Not the right section to post this, but I don't care. Learned that forum moderator PatentAppliedFor passed away over the weekend. Eric was a real nice guy and guitar lover like the rest of us, he answered the call I put out back in the early days of the LPF to be a moderator, which he was still doing up to the time of his passing. I'm really at a loss for words, and extremely bummed out. God bless his family through these tough times. RIP Eric, hopefully I will see you on the other side.

Dave,

I posted this in the Vintage area, so hopefully more people will see it.

From what I've been able to find out, it was a heart attack. :dang

I am stunned and extremely saddened by this. I had intended to go by and see him in August this year on my annual salmon trip to finally meet him in person. I am at a loss for words. I will miss his posts and I am sure he leaves a deep hole in the lives of his family and closest friends. RIP Eric...
