It may be a second or third family, but most likely it's a different dude. He's not in IT at all?He's in his late fifties, so being the father of a newborn, I just don't believe it. He's supposed to be passed his mid-life crisis and the possible consequences that come with it.
He sold some/all of his Canon L series lenses 1.5 years ago. He posted them here, but also listed them on eBay. Three sold Oct 26, 2013. He lives/lived in Salem, Oregon.I have no info either and have wondered the same. If you look back through some of his past posts specifically to the area of folding at home, he gave away or sold most if not all his systems. I wondered if he up and moved on with his life somewhere else or maybe something else was going on. None the less, I hope he's doing ok.
Where do you search for the dead, in the state records or just published obits? Many deaths are not published, but that my vary by state.I've searched the obituaries for Salem, Oregon and the last "Turner" who died there was in 2011, so not him. Unless he moved just before he passed away. His business is still listed.
Has anyone verified the identity of the decedent?Mark was an active folding@home person. Anybody check the stats to see when his points stopped coming in? Still hope we are wrong about this whole thing.
As far are Merc's suggestion about a memorial...CougTek is correct of course and "a memorial is for people who keep living." How about a "memorial thread" that gets bumped every once in a while so we don't forget Mark. Perhaps add people who haven't been here in a while also? Just tossing ideas out there.
