ZJ forum moderator Ratmonkey passed away

I don't know any details yet other than Ratmonkey was in a bad automobile accident & did not survive.

My condolences and thoughts & prayers go out to his family, he will certainly be missed here in Jeep Forum. RIP.

Holy Christ. I have read your posts before Jerry and I know you would not joke about something like this. Did your account get hacked? This is terrible news. I am very sad to hear this.

Wow, thats really sad news. I didn't know the guy personally but he's advised me plenty of times on my jeep. He'll be missed on the forums for sure.

I seen someone post about this in his build thread and hoped it was a cruel joke. Wish I could have known him in real life. He's helped so many people, including myself, and will greatly be missed throughout the forum.

RIP
