Whatever happened to Dseehafer anyway? I can't seem to find it

Can someone tell me what happened to him? He was quite a nice guy, and he was here when I took a break from the game, but not when I came back.

 

I remember a mission called "Honor Dseehafer" or something like that, but what actually happened to him? Did he get cancer, die of a heart attack or something?

 

I just can't find anything on why memorializing Dseehafer is a thing.

 

I would appreciate someone informing me.

 

- Regards, Legoboy0401

 

edit: thank you for telling me. He died just a few days after my birthday, apparently, of a heart attack and eventual heart failure. I mourn. Life is short, I suppose, and I seem to have forgotten that anyone can die at any time.

 

I am sad now, to say the least.

He died.  R.I.P.

Sudden heart attack, IIRC.

I thought so. :Smile_sad: His presence here is missed. I am sad. It just reminds one that life is short, you know, and just how important it is to make the most of what time on earth you are given.

Being a relative newb, I only knew him from his well-researched rants on Tirpitz.  Seemed an intelligent and articulate guy.  Jokes, eh?

this reminds me of part of a quote from a character in Naruto Shippedun, Nagato was his name, and the part of the qoute goes "The truth is, the more precious someone is to us, the harder it is for us to accept the fact that they might die, sometimes you're able to convince yourself that theres no way they could die"

and this quote is so true, people you get to know and love, your mind just makes you believe that they could live forever, but then life sends its cruel reminder that no one lives forever

Mmm, many a dad joke.

 

That being said, his attachment to Tirpitz was a product of much research, and a family member (I forget if it was his grandfather or great grandfather) actually served aboard her.

His work on the forums went far beyond that though, he used to run to ADLA series 'A detailed look at [enter ship here]', as well as the 'What's the Difference' series (showing unique variantions in sister ships), amoung others. Always quite enjoyable and informative reads.

Yeah, at one point I almost thought he might team up with LWM for a review or some sort of cross-over, he was that good.

Those threads might be worth resurrecting.  I'm sure there are several here that haven't seen them.  Would make a good bookend to LWM's Premium series.

Pretty much all of them.

Was this before or after Nagato began to think he was a god? And it says something that he was probably one of the saner villains from that series.

@dseehafer was a tireless champion of making Tirpitz historically accurate a veritable fountain of knowledge on the subject and one of the members who made participating here worthwhile. I was privileged to participate in a Tirpitz only send-off spree in the training room with several other highly respected forumites. Below is a salvo into the sunset for @dseehafer by all of us. Kudos and special thanks go to the inscrutable @Kitsunelegend for making that happen!

Unfortunately, dseehafer passed away.

He will be missed :(

 

Time to break out the one song that always plays in my head for anything like this, especially for anyone naval or associated with warships, even if it just was that they liked them:

 

This one, for example, was in my head when I saw the memorial Table for Sailors Lost at Sea(or something like that) on U.S.S Turner Joy.

It's not just you, it sounds like that to me as well. It's a sad song, to be sure, but for a song(which I assume) was made to invoke the image of sailors that died between sunsets, and would never see the stunning beauty of one closing out the day ever again, it summarizes just how I feel right now.
