Default Unthinkable, impossible tragedy. Steve Dellinger gone

Don't have words. No one knows anything yet. And no one can believe it.

As sweet a guy as any of us know. Inadequate to simply say how much he'll be missed by so many.

Horrible news. Dell was an absolute blast to hang out with and made people he just met feel like close friends. He'll be sorely missed. Deepest condolences to Matt, Barney and the rest of the Chicago crew for losing their buddy.

It's been a horrible hour trying to find out what happened. My wife is a childhood friend of his and we are all in shock. No need to go into details, but such a tragedy. This thread will fill up fast because he touched a lot of lives, but a lot of tears right now.

This is beyond sad. Was one of the reasons a trip to see the DT Chicago contingent at AP was always so fun. Rest in Peace Dell.

Dell will be sorely missed. He was one of the first of the DT crew that I had the chance to meet and he made me feel like I'd known him my whole life. Barney, Matt and crew: you are all in my thoughts and prayers. This is just too unfair.

Stunned and saddened by this unexpected and tragic news. Very hard to not have a great time if Dell was present. He made this board and our world better place. Most sincere condolences to his family and friends. RIP Dell. You will be missed.
