Sad news regarding forum member Declan McCafferty AKA chipsteak

Post by edd_jedi »

I am really sorry to let you all know that I have been contacted by Declan's brother, who has told me that he has sadly passed away. Chipsteak has been a member of the forum for many years, making hundreds of posts, and was active just a couple of weeks ago.

May the Force be with you Declan.
