Unhappy Rest In Peace Andrew Boulton

What else is there to say? He will be missed by many.

This sad news is late and some may have already discovered it on Andrew's Facebook page. He died August 11 and was buried August 21 in Barnsley, UK.

My sincere condolences to those who were close to him. I counted him friend even though we only knew each other through the marvel of the internet.

Peace.

Andrew passed away on the 11th of August, 2012, according to a friend of his.

I had no idea, that's terrible. He will be missed.

This is terrible news, and a total shock.

As far as I was aware he was still young and in good health. How sudden was it for the people who knew him personally?

He was too good to die young.

He had been dealing with some chronic illness for a while but never confided in me just what it was. I suspected it was serious but not this bad. It was unexpected by what I've read. I really have no details.

I'm in shock, myself. I had talked to him through Facebook only the week before he stopped messaging and had no idea this was why. Jeez, I feel awful, he was a great guy and he'll be sorely missed.

This is incredibly sad news. Andrew was one of the classiest guys on this board, and a talented gent to boot. My condolences to his loved ones.

We are truly richer for his having lived, poorer for his passing.
