It's with great sadness and an unbearably heavy heart that I share the news that MeFite WolfDaddy
(and most recently, PapaLobo
) has died.

Eric and I became friends here on MetaFilter over ten years ago, but it wasn't really until the MeFiTenth party in New Orleans
that we became close. He was a kind and funny
man; generous and smart. When we'd go out in New Orleans
, he'd charm free drinks out of every bartender.
He was an active member here, and on MetaChat
and the MeFightClub
. Those of you who interacted with him can attest to his wit and joy for life. Along with the other Houston-area MeFites
, he competed in bar trivia competitions
(which weren't his strong-suit, but he competed fiercely). He enjoyed online gaming and was proud to have beta-tested a number of them, most recently "Diablo 3
". Recently, a series of health problems left him unable to get out and about as much as he once did, but was hopeful
for a healthy recovery as we planned another trip to the crescent city
to eat and drink our way through it all. But now all those drinks will be to his memory.
Funeral arrangements are currently pending, but I will share them here once they're set.
Friends wishing to make memorial donations are welcome to make them to Animal Village NM
, a no-kill animal adoption and rescue organization founded by Eric's mother, Nancy.
He was a wonderful and valued member of this community and the world will forever be slightly less interesting without him in it. Goodbye, my friend.
