Regarding Ack-Ack
« on: October 30, 2022, 12:13:59 AM »
Hello,

I am Ack-Acks wife and with much regret I must announce that he passed away on Oct 1, 2022. He loved this game and had many happy hours shooting down people in his p38. I'm sorry for the delay, I was making arrangements for him.

Thank you, Hitech for being someone he highly respected. Thank you for all the hours of fun you gave him.

With much respect,
Zmy; Ack-Acks widow

My deepest condolences to you and family.  I had known him thru this game for many years and considered him a friend.   He was much respected and will be missed.  Thank you for letting us know.

Oh no!



diddly.



Poor guy. He had just retired and was beginning to work on his master's degree in history. This is horrible. I had a lot of good times flying with him and chatting on vox. We were in the Elite Top Aces + One Mexican squad and he was the Mexican. lol. He insisted on that.

He was like an AH historian. He had an amazing memory and sense of humor for the events and characters in this game. He has recently been messaged me about models.

This is a shock to me. I really liked him.

Condolences to his family and friends.

One of the greats of this game. His P38 abilities stood out and dominated at the top of his game.  :salute

We didn't meet too often in the game due to the different time zones but I remember him as a sound fellow here on the forum.

one of my favourite grumpy old farts, a big loss for our community.

Condolences Zmy.

Crap. I was wondering what happened to him with his silence of late.
No thank you Turkish, I'm sweet enough.
