My apologies for a late requiem but I wanted to post this anyway.

Wayne Henry Cobb Jr, aka EricTheHun, passed away on October 2nd, 2006.

http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=151&t=688032 <––––- Memorial Forum thread by GoatBoy.

I was never able to meet ETH in person, or knew him as well as many of you did, I never debated him on a topic, but I considered him a great level headed fountain of knowledge and wisdom. I think of him regularly and of the members of this site that are no longer posting here for whatever reason, I miss him the most.

RIP, Wayne.

Ericthehun gave me some legal advice that worked. I didn't really know him beyond that, but I would have liked to.

Yup. Hard to believe how many things have changed in three years.

But, the loss of Wayne is still the same intense and sad feeling.

I feel bad for the members here who knew him personally.

They must miss him a great deal as he seemed to be one hell of a nice guy.

I still talk about him at work every now an then.

Can't believe it's been 3 years already. I still remember where I was when I found out.
lol.. I wonder if he ever did find those panties at the farm he was lookin for...

He was always a character
Link Posted: 10/6/2009 3:59:55 PM EST
I've been want to find his final resting place, as i think it isn't too far from my home north of here. Like to put a BFL and take a pic. Anyone know?

I never debated him on a topic..........

I did many times. He kicked my ass every time.

I considered him a great level headed fountain of knowledge and wisdom.

Probably the smartest non-technical person I ever knew.

I miss him.........

As do I.

Dang.

Three years?

I hope to see him one day before our Heavenly Father's throne.

Just the mention of a great arfcommer who passed away made me think of ErictheHun.

What a crappy anniversary.

I will see you again, my friend. I miss you.

I remember he always told me that I won't have a full auto rifle the first day of the 2nd Revolution, but I'd sure have one the SECOND day.

He personally invited me to the Farm for the get-together both in 2004 and '05. I couldn't make it due to taking care of Grandpa.

I never met the man face to face, but I'm man enough to admit it. I cried the day he passed. I think I still have a few emails from him.

I miss you buddy.


Windex margaritas are still the most manly drink out there.

It always seemed like going to the Hun farm was an Arfcom right of passage. If you went you were part of the family. I always wanted to go... and I'll never have the chance.
Link Posted: 10/7/2009 12:01:48 PM EST
I wasnt around then to know him, but he sounds like a great guy. Too bad I didnt get to know him.

RIP ETH

He was always the cheery one to go with hateful misery, was interesting

I remember logging on to arfcom, just to converse with him. His passing left a huge void that was never replaced. It seemed like the times when he was around were always lighthearted and cheery.

The cemetary is just a bit south of Crowell. Wayne's grave is in the eastern part of the cemetary.

He's a good part of the reason my IM inbox is still full.

Can't believe I missed this thread. Fuck all of y'all for not emailing me.

Makes my heart both glad and sad at once, thinking about his life and his premature passing, respectively...
