    RIP, Shawn Ambrose

    I am very, very sad to report that one of our long time participants, Shawn Ambrose, passed away suddenly yesterday. His son Jon posted this to social media:

    Yesterday, while bicycling with friends, my father did not feel well. They pulled off the trail to take a quick break. While resting, my father lost consciousness. Paramedics were unable to revive him. He was pronounced dead shortly after.
    Prayers for my mother, my siblings and family would be greatly appreciated.
    RIP Shawn Ambrose. You were, and are, the greatest father I ever could have hoped for. I cannot wait to see you again someday.
    Shawn took a chance on me, hiring me for my first instructor gig, at LCO Ojibwe Community College, must be ten years ago now. Later he was kind enough to be one of my references when I applied for doctoral study. He was a friend, and I'll miss him.

    I'm very sorry to hear of Shawn's passing. I did not know him personally but he was consistently helpful and positive. I'm sure he will be missed by many.

    My condolences. Very sad news. He was always a classy guy on DI. I read everyone of his post as far back as I can remembered. He will surely be missed.

    RIP Shawn!
    XVI.8: Confucius said, "There are three things of which the superior man stand in awe. He stands in awe of the ordinances of Heaven. He stands in awe of great men. He stands in awe of the words of the sages. The mean man does not know the ordinances of Heaven, and consequently does not stand in awe of them. He is disrespectful to great men. He makes sport of the words of the sages."

    Geez! So it looks like he was only in his fifties? I wonder if he had a weight problem or something. That's why it's good to get yearly physicals.
