    It is with a saddened heart that I tell you that our friend, Poksal, passed away on April 1, 2013.

    This was posted on his facebook page.
    "Our hearts weep heavily over the loss of a great man of God, a lover of nature and all wild-life, a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend. But our souls rejoice as we know he is home. Randy Kimball will be missed by so many. Please join us as we lift up the Kimball family in prayer."

    Randy's wife has reached out to me for help with his Saltwater Aquariums. I live in Central New York and can't really provide much assistance. If anyone here lives in the Keller, Texas area and would be willing to lend a hand with the tanks, please contact me at baeya@aol.com and I will put you in touch with Randy's wife.

    Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory, no one can steal. Rest in peace my friend.

    Damn. Hate to hear this. It was always great how much research he did and questions he asked. I could really tell he had a passion for the Reef.

    My condolenses.

    Damn that's a shame, I'm sorry to hear that. He was certainly a character and easy to remember; rarely do we get as motivated members that often.

    OMG...I have been really worried about him. Rest in peace fellow reefer. It looks like he lived north of Fort Worth. I am in San Antonio about 6 hours away but still a bit far to drive for me. I know there are some members in the Dallas area hopefully one of them can help out.

    This is such sad news :( I definitely noticed his absence and was also quite worried. From what I could tell he seemed to live life to the fullest and enjoyed every minute of it. Baeya, I'm glad you kept in touch with him and were able to share this news with us - thank you. My heart goes out to his family and friends, he will be (and already was) missed greatly around here.
