John “JohnFredC” Cantrell (February 18, 1952 – March 20, 2015)

Post by XnTriq »

It is with deep sadness that I announce the passing of my friend JohnFredC, who has been a long-time member of the XnView community and one of the most prolific contributors. He will be sorely missed…

PS: Sorry for being so brief, but I'm still lost for words right now.

Thank you very much, Pierre!

John was a man of many talents. His Picasa web album is unfortunately no longer accessible, but at least some of his photos are still available on Flickr.

I remember him well and remember seeing on this forum that he passed away. He supported many of my ideas and feedback within this forum.

I turned 34 earlier this month and I was a lot younger back in the days when I used to be active on this forum.

As living beings on this Earth, one moment we're here and alive, the next we're...

John was aged 63
R.I.P. kind sir.
