    I am sad to report that 2017 has taken our Ute brother and consummate Ute fan, Webmonkey.

    I don't know any of the details other than what is on his Facebook page, which says he passed away at around 1pm this afternoon.

    A Utah man he was! Ki yi!

    Bill Paxton at a way too early age of 61.

    Judge Wapner from the People's Court. Tough day for the legal community. He was 97.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    In reading about Paxton:

    Paxton was born in Fort Worth, Texas, in 1955. He accidentally entered the national spotlight at age 8, when he went to see President John F. Kennedy visit Dallas on November 22, 1963.
    A photo of Paxton hoisted above the crowd became a famous photo from the day of Kennedy's assassination.

    2017 took Papa mUUser home to his maker. After HS, he briefly ran track at the U as a sprinter, then served in the Marine Corp during WWII in the Pacific. He loved being a Marine. Married 67 years. Lived only 10 minutes from the U in sugarhouse in the same home 65 years. Unbelievable husband and father -- great Ute who did it the right way.

    I'm sorry for your loss, muuser. Looks like you're giving a sendoff to a remarkable man.

    I'm sad to hear of your loss. It does sound like he did it right. Semper Fidelis Marine! Godspeed, fair winds and following seas.
