As a former member of FT, I also wish to express my sincere condolences to Gun's family and his family of friends at FunTrivia.

I know he was an integral part of FT and he will be missed by all of you.

Kelly, I posted the following message in the Editor's Forum yesterday but since you probably don't have access to that, I am reproducing it here. As you can see by the many posts, your father was highly respected, greatly loved and will be missed by people all over the world.


"I didn't know Gunslinger very well but he was very helpful to me when I first became an editor. I am so sorry to hear this news and would like to pass on my condolences to his loved ones. He will be greatly missed."

Thanks, MamaGoose. I don't have access to the editor's forum. Is it possible for someone to either email me those or maybe allow me temp access to read those? I would like to see them.

I hope you all realize just how much a part of his life you all were. His memorial would not be comlpete without FunTrivia. I know of one member coming up from Philadelphia. I hope a few more might be able to make it. If anyone else is in the Philly area, maybe you guys could get together and car pool. I would love to see you all.

I was thinking of printing up all the comments and putting them out for the Memorial Service. I have all his medals, his Bachelor's degree, some really great pictures, a wonderful large picture of him with his police buddies from 1961... I have his retired police badge... all of these will be placed around the room for the service. Any remembrances from you guys would be a wonderful addition for people to see.

You can post them here or send them to me in a PM.

Thanks

Kelly

My condolences and thoughts go out to his family and friends.
It's sad to read of this tragic loss. Though we never crossed paths in the short time I've been here, it's apparent from what I've read that Gunslinger contributed much of his time and himself to making this a great second home for many of us.
Making others happy- that's what it's all about.
RIP, Larry.

Gunslinger banned my IPS#(not sure if that is right) which was the same as some foul mouthed teen. It took me weeks to convince him I was a 42 year old woman (with the help of Mak and Cool). When he was convinced he sent me a nice apology note what a class act.

It is most moving to me to see the contributions of ex members of FT to this thread. I think that is much appreciated by many of us.

Kelly, it's done .. have a look at the bottom of the Main Page. You may remember some names in there from your days as a mod and an editor. May your father's soul R.I.P.

Very sorry to hear of Gunslinger's passing. When I was a newbie here he helped me straighten out a password problem (I was registered but my password wouldn't work). It's always nice to deal with a class act like he was.

I would also like to extend my condolences to his family and close friends. I am another member who, when I needed help, received it very kindly from Gunslinger. He was very kind to me during that incident and I appreciated it very much. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

A good friend of mine sent this to me...

"For what is it to die but to stand naked in the wind and to melt into the sun?

And what is to cease breathing, but to free the breath from its restless tides, that it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered?

Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.

And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.

And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance."

Kahlil Gibran

Larry E. Worth Jr, 62, retired police sergeant

Published in the Courier News on September 19, 2003

SOMERVILLE -- Larry E. Worth Jr., 62, died suddenly Tuesday (Sept. 16, 2003) at his residence in Somerville.

He was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and was formerly of Bound Brook before moving to Somerville more than 40 years ago. Larry was a retired sergeant for the Bridgewater Police Department for more than 20 years where he was chief of detectives.

Larry graduated from Rutgers University with a BS degree. He was a veteran of the Air Force during the Korean War, where he received the Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star with a `V' for Valor, Purple Heart and four Army Air Medal awards.

He was a mason of Solomon's Lodge in Somerville, a member of the A.O.H. of Somerset County, Aircraft Owners and Polots Association, American Order of Pilots, retired secretary of the state and Local PBA 174. Larry was an avid reader and especially enjoyed working with computers and riding his motor cycle and will be sadly missed by his family and friends.

Surviving are his daughter Kelly Sepelak, son Michael Lawrence, fiancee Eileen Blanchfield and a granddaughter Sydney Ann.

Funeral services will be 1 p.m. Saturday at the Bruce C. VanArsdale Funeral Home, 101 N. Gaston Ave., Somerville. Cremation will be private.

Memorial contributions in his name may be made to Bridgewater PBA No. 174, P.O. Box 6174, Bridgewater, NJ 08807.

Such very sad news.

Gunslinger was one of the very first people I met at this site--and he was certainly one of the reasons I became involved with getting these Forums up and running. His contributions were invaluable and his guiding hand was always mature and sure and firm. He could always be counted on for sensible thoughtful advice and an encouraging word. As long as these Forums remain, I think that GS will always be here with us in memory.

Kelly, please accept my deepest sympathies. Your father was a warm, witty, intelligent friend. I shall miss him. He really managed to touch lives all over the globe with his contributions at FT. He was a very special guy.

May GS rest in peace. I have not said anything outside of a private forum, but I feel it's necessary to do so. Such a private man who never let on how distinguished he really was! Excellent nature. He will be missed, but we will go on in his memory. RIP.

Gun's memorial service was very nice. I had the opportunity to meet Eileen and Kelly, and both are very sweet people.

I learned at the service that Gun had graduated in 1977 from Rutger's University with a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice; and that he was honorably discharged from the Air Force in 1964. He worked for the Pinkerton Detective agency for quite a few years, and he was the sergeant in charge of the detectives of the Bridgewater Police Department.

Looking at the pictures of Gun, I saw that he was a very, very handsome man.

It's hard to believe that a man of this caliber has passed on...may he always rest in peace.

Thanks for that, DN, I am so glad we were represented at the service. He would have been glad. I am grateful to you for that.

Eileen asked that this be posted in the forums. I agree that she's a very sweet lady, and my heart goes out to her, Kelly and the rest of Gun's family.

Quote:

Hello all,

I am Eileen, Larry's fiance. I would like to thank everyone for their nice
thoughts and postings on Larry's passing. I know he thought of many of you as
friends.

He was a special man who could guide you when he thought it was needed or just
let you run with it when he thought that was needed, as well.

He knew when to leave well enough alone.

I'm sorry I don't have much more to add.

Thank you for your nice thoughts and thank you Dakota North and Junior the Jaws
for taking the time to come to the memorial service today. Thank you for Linda1
for the beautiful flowers as well.

I've been away for the last few weeks and didn't find out until Heather was kind enough to tell me this morning. I was shocked and very saddened to hear this news. There's really very little I can add to the beautiful sentiments expressed here; no profound poems leap to mind, nor do any particularly telling anecdotes. All I can say is that he was one of the first people at FunTrivia who I met; he was the one who gave me a slot as an editor, who believed in me, who was a mentor to me and to every other editor on the roster today. I knew a wise and fair man and I know that we will all miss him.

My thoughts and prayers go out to you, Kelly and Eileen, and to the rest of your family. Thank you so much for coming by and allowing us to extend our sympathies.

This Was Really Sad News To Me. Heartfelt Sympathies To Gunslinger's Family and world of friends. My past experience within Funtrivia and the honor to know him and learn from him if only in "CyberSpace" has never been forgotten. A Good man indeed.
