From Ironaddicts Forum

It is with much sadness that we have to inform you that our beloved Wesley passed away on Saturday 9/11/2010. The circumstances of his death will remain private and we ask you to respect the family's wishes. Iron Addict's will continue in honor of Wesley; however we will be shutting the board down for a time of reflection and to honor his memory. You will see a memorial page when trying to access the site. We will return in a few days.

Long time member over there. Even though you never meet in person, they feel like losing family all the same.

His death came as a shock. I.A. and I talked through PM's, he helped me with my diet and all. He was an important member of the community.
My prayers go to his family and friends.
