Hello Everyone,

Many of you have been long time friends of my dad, known here as Chief Longwind (and previously Goodweed of the North). He passed away last night in his sleep. I want you to know that he loved being part of this group and you all mattered to him. He loved sharing recipes and cooking tips, techniques, and just enjoying the company and camaraderie of everyone in this community. He always spoke fondly of this forum. Thank you to everyone who has contributed to his life and joy over the years, I cannot express the positive impact you've had on his life.

Love to you all,
Jess

This is awful. The Chief has been a pillar of this community almost from the beginning. I saw him as a brother. I will miss him immensely.

Rest In Peace.

I'm so sorry to hear this. He was a wonderful man, so generous with his knowledge and caring of everyone he knew. I learned a lot from him - not just about cooking - and I will miss him. My condolences to you and your family.

I don't have the words to express how sad this makes me. I'm in tears. The Chief was such a kind and generous person. He will be sorely missed here at Discuss Cooking.

My very sincere condolences to you Jess and to the rest of the family.
