Rewinding the clock, sadly

Rod Peterson—Ormond Beach, FL

I don't know how many here were practitioners of usenet, and particularly rec.woodworking (known as The Wreck), but long time denizon and much more importantly, the author of Scary Sharp(TM), Steve LaMantia, passed away earlier today.

I had reposted his Scary Sharp(TM) article on my website years ago, and some years later got a very complimentary email from him regarding it and my site. We corresponded a bit.

A year or so ago, we crossed paths on FB and instantly friended one another. His sister posted on his page today with the news.

Very sad, he was a consummate wordsmith and pretty sharp (pun possibly intended) on a lot of things. He'll be missed.
