    Default RIP SLEEPER 5150

    Hey all. This is Jason. I co post occasionally using his handle, and I posted a few times today, so just so there's no confusion. We've been bandmates and roommates for the past several years.
    Just wanted to pass some sad info along. I know he loved this place being the VH fanatic he was. Not sure if he mentioned this to any of you, but he'd been fighting stomach cancer for the past two years. He'd made some great strides fighting it, but he has been hospitalized for the past two weeks as the cancer's spread was quit quick. I got word this afternoon that he suffered cardiac arrest.
    They were able to revive him, but he succumbed a second time, and they were not able to revive him.
    I just wanted to let you all know. he was a great, sweet person who loved life.
    he was a terrific songwriter, guitarist, and above all friend.
    Sorry if I seem a little sterile, I'm still in shock as he was such a fighter. There was no doubt in anyones mind he'd beat it, but I guess it just got too much.
    Anyway,just wanted to pass the news along.

    Thanks everyone.
    RIP Buds! We'll miss you!

    Thank you Bugs. I'm doing ok. Quite a shock. Saw him yesterday, and he was doing as well as can be expected. Still had that huge smile of his hammering away on his laptop. By the looks of it he was on here too! He was the strong silent type. never let on when things were bad, but he'd go out of his way for anyone. He got a big kick out of you guys.

    Sad to hear. Here's hoping the sadness fades but the good memories remain for you, Jason (and his other friends and family).

    Rest in Peace, Shane
