(quoted from post at 23:11:23 02/03/1Cool RIP, my good man! Always enjoyed his posts,
insights and knowledge on things electrical. Thank
you for letting us know. May God be with the
family in the days abead.
Dell was a good old boy!
Once when his frankness rubbed someone the wrong way, they called him a curmudgion and I replied that I would be proud if they called me that.

When he was having computer troubles and couldnt get on yt, I contacted them on his behalf and we had a few snail mail exchanges where he sent me some of his prized anastizi (?) beans with his recepe to cook with ham hock. Wife did and. we both enjoyed. Rest in peace my man, it was a good run.

The gates of heaven opened and called up another of the great ones. I am glad I was able to get to know Dell on this site if only for a short time.
My condolences to you and your family.

Thanks for being there for your father, he is smiling
down on you for sure.
He was an incredible character, kinda feel like he
was one of my family members.
I will miss him for sure.

God Bless all of your family in this time of mourning.

I joined YT due to an 8N purchase. It was Dell who's posts I remembered most while lurking and then as a member. Two things I could always find when he made a post here, humor and accurate information. He will be missed here and the other places he liked to visit.

R.I.P. Dell

I am so very sorry for your loss and this deeply saddening news.

Dell helped so many with their problems, including me.

He will be sorely missed - May he rest in peace.

First off thanks for letting us know. I think you can tell by the number of replies to your posts that your father impacted many people here. I always enjoyed the humor that he used as he tried to help people.

Please accept my condolences and I wish you and your family God's Peace.

RIP Dell, you will be missed.
