United Kingdom Passing of a former snopester

RIP the former snopester known as Jay Tea.

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the death of my big brother Joe. Joe died at home on the 28th, he was 43 years of age. If any of his friends would like to attend the funeral then feel free to message me or my big Sis for the details. Needless to say we are all very shocked at his sudden loss but we are finding the strength to carry on in his memories and each other in the family. I love you Bruv and I'll see you again at the bar.......but not yet!!!!! Xxx
I always enjoyed Jay Tea's wit and heart, not to mention his love of good food that he frequently shared with recipes and commentary. Way too young.

Oh, that's incredibly sad. musickgeek, can you post a remark on Facebook on behalf of those snopesters who don't have access to his page, saying we were very sorry to hear of his passing?

Will do. If there's anyone who wants to chime in with a specific remembrance, I'll be sure to pass it along.

43 is far too young.
RIP, Joe/Jay Tea.

I'm in shock. He bought some art of me once, presumably to bolster my esteem at the time. He didn't know me well, he was just kind to a stranger. Always had a story about everything! I would think of him now and again though I had not heard from him in so long. I regret I never met him when we said we should meet up and have a drink. I'll drink to him the memories of old times Snopes discussions, his cheerful pacifism to online arguments, to the man who was kind and friendly to a stranger.

I never met him either. I would have liked to, but I think he was a bit shy of the gatherings we used to have. He said he was interested once or twice, but never came to any in the end.

(A few of us are meeting up in London in a couple of weeks, and I'd invited him to that through a Facebook event when we arranged it back in October. I don't think he even saw the invitation though).

Very sad.
