I didn't know him, but it's always sad to hear about the passing of a fellow collector. Rest in peace.

Very sad news I actually remember him posting not that long ago once I spotted the name. He seemed a nice guy.

Didn't know Mete personally, but oddly it feels like I did, such was his presence in the community - RIP

He passed away just this past Thursday :( If anyone who knew him wants to send a donation to his wife there is a gofundme page: https://www.gofundme.com/loveformete

I'm still in shock, he was just 36 years old and a father of two amazing kids. :(

Devastating news. I've spoken to Mete regulary for the last years and were planing on meeting up. He shared his joy and knowledge of collecting and was always there if I needed advice.

Rest in peace my friend.

Tragic news and a guy with a name we all knew, even if we didn't know him personally.

Can't imagine what his wife and kids are going through. Thoughts are with them

I knew the name from seeing him post on various boards but I'm not sure I ever spoke to him. Never nice to see a fellow collector pass away.

RIP.

So sad to hear this. Mete was a good guy and I remember him from the forums. Such a sad day for all who knew him.

RIP buddy.
