  • RIP George Bright AKA Sundown

    Hey guys, some of you know may know me...I'm a good buddy and neighbor to George.

    Unfortunately, I'm here to inform you of the tragic loss of George this morning at about 5am. As some of you know, he was diagnosed with cancer a few months back. Shockingly and completely coincidently, he suffered from a bowel rupture last week that he just couldn't pull out of. With the cancer in his body, he wasn't strong enough to fight the infection. It was hard to see him in ICU in his condition and I truly believe it was for the better.

    Please say a prayer for his family...he left behind a 12 year old son and a 16 year old daughter.

    George, we'll dearly miss you buddy.You were a mentor and friend to many :*( :*(

    The same Sundown and Sundown II and Sundown III ?

    I'm very new here, but I can tell he had quite a bit of respect and admiration from many members. I enjoyed his posts and opinions. Although I never had a chance to get to know him, I'll miss the opportunity to do so.

    My thoughts and prayers for the family and younguns.

      Oh no, there was only one Sundown without the number behind his name. I am so sorry to hear that.
      What do I know I am just an electronics technician.

          OH MY GOD. I met George last year and hung out with him for a few hours when I went down to visit family in New Mexico. George is a genuinely down to earth guy and was a pleasure to see his posts on the forum. I will definatley pray for George's family.

            Well..DA**!!!! Thru numerous PM's and emails and even some telephone calls George got close to me..and thats something I rarely let happen. He kept trying to talk me into getting into TIG work... I teased him a lot about his age and having such a young children and then we both would get a belly laugh from it.

            No one is going to miss that guy anymore than I am.

            Peace be with ya George!!

                  He and I had planned to meet when I go to NM this next May...and your spot on when you say.."George is a genuinely down to earth guy and was a pleasure to see his posts on the forum. "

                      Man, I just can't believe it. George was the nicest guy that I never met, in person. He will be sorely missed. My most sincere condolences to his family.

                        Really, really .......... really sorry to hear it. Rest in peace, George, and the best to his family.

                        I guess eventually, we all get flung off of this crazy merry-go-round of life.

                            I wouldn't mind getting ChainbreakeRs address and a few of us toss a 5$ or 10$ bill in an envelope and get flowers or a donation to the family or whatever from the forum members?
