Shane just posted that Nasty passed away from a heart attack this morning. The world is a lesser place today and one of the most entertaining people i've ever known is gone. I spent a lot of time with Chad and when my father was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, Chad sent care packages of TAR matches and shirts to him and called often to check on how I was. I can't express the sadness I feel at this time. He will most definitely be remembered by me fondly. I'll miss you brother!

Damnnn that's a shock. R.I.P. Big Nasty we had some good conversations that I will always remember. Always shared information and made some dough together a couple times off it. You'll be missed.

I saw that on Shane's FB ... didn't know what to say. I still don't, other than to send my best wishes to his family and friends.
