He and I went at it once in full fashion.
He stood his ground on what he knew to be correct, he was right to do so and I learned a fast lesson on catering to plumbing "folklore" and started putting my nose back into my code book.
After all was said and done, we developed a mutual respect.
He reminded me of what I was taught by old school plumbers I'd learned under when I first started, standing up for whats right & what you beleive in is seldom popular.
I sincerely looked forward to hopefully getting to know him one day, God had other plans.
See You later Brother
If friends are any indication of the man, he was a great man.
I look forward to meeting him.

Plumbdog was a great man. I had the utmost of respect for him and I think he was a big part of maintaining the integrity of this forum. He was a man that lived by his word and still had the guts to admit if he was wrong. I for one will always remember him with a smile and with pride that he chose to be part of our community.
Peace out, Dog. I hope you went out surrounded by loved ones. You were a true man among men.
Thank you plumbdogsbuddy for coming to this place where we used to meet with plumbdog10. Having to introduce yourself by sharing the news of his passing is a very big thing and you have my respect. I am grateful to hear that he did not suffer long and had his wits about him while he tied up lose ends.
This site is like an encyclopedia of trade advice thanks to his frequent stands against do-it-yourselfers and fly-by-nighters. By challenging himself to be the best he challenged others to stand tall and so the standard of technical information contained inside these cyber-walls is remarkable.
And do you know what he said to me once? That he did not have a good reputation on this forum. All I can do today is shake my head and say plumbdog, rest easy now, for your work here is done.
