I too am saddened and impressed by this thread... all the haters can just suck it, as it seems we have lost a find Farker, and like someone mentioned above, a family lost a husband and a father.

RIP, my fellow Farker. May the headlines on Divine Fark be much better than ours here on Earth...

Another Farker gone, and we don't know who he is. To all of you, this is why you need to attend Fark parties whenever you can. Get a few others here to at least know who you are. That way when you pass we can pour out a 40 invoking the right nic.

I was being morbid and thinking about this just the other day: if one of us should die, no one would know. That login would just suddenly stop posting.

So I've decided that you all need to include in your end of life instructions that one last po... final communication be made on your behalf.

I am saddened by the loss of this Unknown Farker. May there be Fark in Heaven, and may all of your posts be the perfect ballance of snark and intelligence, and may all of your submissions be green.

Godspeed, Fark friend.

It's a safe bet that this guy liked Fark for all its irreverence. I think he would have been disappointed by this thread's lack of photoshop contests using his picture, jailbait/cheerleader photos, trolling, ill-informed political debates, Bevets's copypasta, beersnobbery, squirrel nuts, and ugly-ass baby animals.

RIP, Captain Repici. I'll see you someday in Fiddler's Green.


Fiddler's Green
As I roved by the dockside one evening so fair
To view the salt waters and take in the salt air
I heard an old fisherman singing a song
Oh, take me away boys me time is not long

Wrap me up in me oilskin and jumper
No more on the docks I'll be seen
Just tell me old shipmates, I'm taking a trip mates
And I'll see you someday in Fiddlers Green

Now Fiddler's Green is a place I've heard tell
Where the fishermen go if they don't go to hell
Where the weather is fair and the dolphins do play
And the cold coast of Greenland is far, far away

Now when you're in dock and the long trip is through
There's pubs and there's clubs and there's lassies there too
And the girls are all pretty and the beer is all free
And there's bottles of rum growing on every tree.

Where the skies are all clear and there's never a gail
And the fish jump on board with one swish on their tail
Where you lie at your leisure, there's no work to do
And the skipper's below making tea for the crew

Now I don't want a harp nor a halo, not me
Just give me a breeze and a good rolling sea
I'll play me old squeeze-box as we sail along
With the wind in the riggin to sing me a song

/a traditional song
//Irish Rovers did it best
///Tragically Hip sings different lyrics, same sentiment

I still have that bookmarked. Thanks and Godspeed.

I am truly sadden by this. Farewell, fellow Farker. And my condolences to his family, know that we are thinking of you today.

/I am also trying to quit smoking and have found a great deal of inspiration in this thread.
//Wish me luck

...something's in my eye... :(
 
2009-03-07 12:29:18 PM
We are all just Fark cliches. You see us as you want to see us, in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out, is that each one of us is a brain, and an athlete, and a basketcase, a princess, and a criminal. Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, Farkers.

I have no idea what that means. I was going to make a Ric Romero joke and then Ric'roll everyone as a last tribute to a fallen Farker but I went with an 80's movie reference instead.

I got nothing.

Free now from all mortal pains
From poxes and from pleurisy
And perhaps the greatest one
Living in New Jerisey

Rest in peace my unknown friend
We'll meet when I've met my end

I celebrate this guy's life. If he ran a restaurant he was involved in serving others. Obviously loved his family and was loved in return. I celebrate the internet and FARK as well. What a wonderful vector of information and method of putting one's finger on the zeitgeist!
Tobacco is some mean stuff. My paternal grandfather died of oral cancer before I could meet him. He only had a cigar after dinner, sometimes. He lingered in hospital for seven years. He was an infantry commander in WW1, so, lately, I wonder if he wasn't exposed to something on the battlefield. There seems to be a genetic factor at play that combines with tobacco use to kill many people. The invention of cigs made its use far more convenient, and the corresponding spike in mortality was easy to suss. There are some interesting interviews with Johnny Cash toward the end where he talks about the fact that we are of the flesh.

nothing wrong with that

Quit smoking 8 months ago, best thing I ever did. Everyone should try

I have to disagree wholeheartedly. This is the other side of internet anonymity. This is the way that it goes. I think it's poetic that this is how it is.

He really seemed like a cool guy. I would like to extend condlolences to his family. If they are reading these posts, it may take some explaining (the squirrel especially), but the sentiments are very genuine.

Let me be the first to say fark in a memorial thread.
I was thinking of ripping off Monty Python some more, but instead I give you this (new window).
And now for something completely different (new window).

Got a glass of schnapps and a marb red lit up in honor of this guy. Probably never saw him on here, but he looked like a good man in the article.

Where they got the good stuff on tap and the pizza's always free!

Rest in peace, Farker, and may you find justice.
 
2009-03-07 01:04:00 PM

Judging by that memorial page, it sounds as if he led a really solid, multi-faceted life. He had not only a love of many different interests, but a genuine love of life itself. There's a lot to be said about that.


Perhaps this is the most telling thing to be said about the man:

"He always acted as if nothing bothered him... He just took everything in stride."



The hectic twists and turns that life throws at us can have profound effects upon ourselves - and certainly for the worse - but it seems as if Mr. Repici knew what was truly important amidst the hustle and bustle of everything. If anything, you can certainly see that in what his friends and family had to say about him.


Thank you for spending your time with us at Fark, Mr. Repici. God bless you and yours. I wish your family peace, comfort, and condolences.


Rest in peace, sir.
