    Default The Passing of William "Bill" Barber,,, Pixelfixed.

    With sadness of heart, I bring this news of our fellow member Pixelfixed. Bill has passed away and here is the message I received from his wife Toni a few minutes ago.

    "Hello John,

    I received your certified letter in the mail today. Thank you for your caring and your concern. I am Bill Barber's wife, and when he could no longer get on the computer himself, he gave me his log on to this site and wanted me to check his posts. He was too ill to have me reply to them.

    He died on April 4th at the Roseville Care Center where he went for rehab after he had been admitted to hospital for weakness and complications of pneumonia and end-stage liver disease.

    He was really looking forward to coming home, getting back on the Internet and creating more of his brushes. That was not to be. His log in of pixelfixed is actually me, he was just using it. If you would care for more information please contact me, Toni Barber. If you could get the word out for me of his passing I would be grateful, as I do not know how to post on this site. Thank you, John for your kindness. Toni Barber"

    I will have more to say on this good man and friend, when I can gather my thoughts,,,,,,,,,,,,

    I was wondering where he had been lately.

    I'm shocked and saddened by this news.

    We will miss him dearly.

    This is sad news. I have missed pixel's posts and was worried about his health.
    My condolences go out to Mrs. Barber and family.

    Wow. Terrible news. He will be missed around here. I will have to use the brush he made me tomorrow. I was just thinking about him the other day because I had not seen him.

    I'm sorry to hear of his passing and hope his family is holding together in tough times.
    The older I get the more I realize how little I actually know.

    I did not know the man but I enjoyed his posts and contributions to the forum. He will be missed.

    Oh, he definitely will be missed. I had no idea that he was ill and am very sorry for his passing. I wonder if there is anything that we can do for his family?

    I just got the news less than an hour ago. I will reach out to the family tomorrow, Saturday, and let you know the response.

    Is it over there or over yonder?

    God's speed Bill and may you rest in eternal peace.

    Condolences to your family and may they find some strength as we share the loss of a favorite member of SRP.
