Just noticed his updated avaitar and sig. Searched for a thread and found none. Looks as if Sir Hemster passed on 9/6/19. Really saddened by this news as G was fine Sir.

Had several private conversations over the years about work, life and other things. He had a great sense of humor, got a kick out of Andial like i did, and he always kept it real.

He wanted pops and i to drive down and work on his place a few years back and i sure wish we could have after what that bunch put them through.

He was going through a rough time health wise at the same time my pal Don was. G always ask for updates via pm and there's not a doubt in my mind that he truly cared about a guy he would never meet.

Always told me he kept Don in his prayers and was heartbroke when i told him that Don had taken a turn for the worse.

Speaks volumes to kind of person he was and kind of folks that you'll find gracing this forum.

Greg is Ace's in my book and will be kindly remembered for the Sir he always was to me.

Rest in peace Hemester old pal and the kindest of regards to his widow. I truly am sorry for your loss.

When I first joined, mayhem gave me a warm welcome. We disagreed on one thing and at first, I thought he was giving me grief. Maybe he was but what I gained out of it was his wish for me was to open my eyes.

Thanks for passing the bad news along, stondey. I do hope he went in peace.

I liked Mayhem. We chatted a couple of times.

I knew he was on the downhill side, but didn't know how far it progressed.

He seemed to poo poo the seriousness, so I thought he was on the mend.

Sad to hear he passed...

Greg was most certainly one of the good guys. I mean that sincerely. We had one or two personal conversations, awhile back. I can not tell you the personal stuff he said to me, but I can tell you that he had one heck of an extraordinary life. The kind you would read about in a novel, or see in a movie. Then, one day, I believe God spoke to him, gave him a vision that entirely changed his life, forever. He became a new man. And I mean entirely, a new man. That’s the Greg you knew here on GIM. He was very strongly opinionated, but also very sincere, with opinions based on faith in God and his extraordinary life’s experiences. I know Greg is standing with God, right now and for him, it must be incredible. He knows a peace, joy and love like he’s maybe never felt before. I envy him now, but I’ll be there too, someday. God bless him.

Anyone else note that he knew his end here was coming soon, and he wasn't afraid. I remember reading his words to that effect. He was remarkable to me for that alone, that he knew and was almost welcoming it. It was obvious that he had a compelling and remarkable life.

RIP mayhem

Let’s just say that Greg knew his destination, after he left this planet. He had a glimpse of it once, in a hospital room, quite awhile ago and the thought of ending up in the realm of God and the angels left him with no fear of letting go here, save leaving his wife, who he loved very much. My sympathies to Mrs. Mayhem, for her loss. I believe, though, based on what Greg told me, she will see him again.

Mayhem fought the good fight, without complaint.

Cheered up those around him as we travel between these eternities.


Now go rest on that Mountain, Greg. Hope to see ya at the big meetup.

He was Top Drawer.

The words of others here explain to everyone how and why he was respected.
When I go, the membership here will have a going away celebration, but I won't be invited! :beer:
I've ruffled too many feathers here but that's ok, I understand why! I can't save them all however; it's my honor to know you all! :gracious:

Last time I was in Florida, I mentioned that I'd been there, Mayhem said if I'd have said something, I could have came by his home for a visit.

By then I was already home.

RIP Greg.

And thanks Stonedy.

Hi EO. I’m not ignoring your question, just thinking about it and whether I should answer it, or how to answer it. Greg is gone, but still, some of the things he told me I think, were in confidence. I’ll just repeat what I said in an earlier post, that he led an extraordinary life. But, one thing he said, I believe, was in a public post here on GIM. He mentioned that he was in the service and at least part of his job was demolitions and he was quite good at it, which is how he earned the name, Mayhem. He related a story, but I honestly can’t recall the specifics of it, right now, but in it, he related some specific details that made it clear how the name, Mayhem was appropriate.
As for his civilian life, let’s just say it’s the kind of stuff that books are written about and you might see in the movies. I don’t think it’s my place to elaborate.

I was in that camp too.
I pray he was in Heaven before the devil even knew he was dead.
Another good man moves his membership to the Heaven Chapter of GIM2.

Straw,

as there may be people here who would take that wrong and figure he was in a rough tour of duty shall we say

I always thought Mayhem was one of those guys you take at face value He was a kind person but a straight shooter. He earned my immediate respect here.
