I was just informed by best friend that he'd received an e-mail from Thad's sister that Thad passed yesterday. I don't have any details yet of the funeral, but will post a link when that becomes available. He passed at their ranch in West Texas unexpectedly.

For those of y'all who knew Thad personally, you know what a good guy he was. I met him around 20 years ago on the old Bass Fishing Home Page forum. He'd give you the shirt off his back, for real. Every time we fished together, he was offering something. I'd say no, only to find a hand made Sanford crankbait in the boat glove box, a $20 bill in the truck console, always something.

He was a very giving, unselfish and happy go lucky person. He'll be missed.

This is very sad news. Thad was always willing to share all of his knowledge about fishing. Just terrible news! He took me out once and put me on Lew fish. Offering prayers and condolences to all of his family. I knew he had medical conditions, but never expected it this bad. RIP, buddy. Your comments will be missed by many...

Very sad news. I did not know Thad personally, but I always enjoyed reading his long articles he would post.

Man, I hate to hear that. I didn't know him at all other than this forum but I could tell he was an outstanding, caring, man that would do anything to help or offer advice to others. Prayers for his family, he'll be missed on here.

Sorry to hear that. I only knew him on the forum. Seemed like a knowledgeable guy who liked to share his wealth of information with anyone who needed help. RIP
