I interacted with him alot, sometimes daily when he was on the road, on here.

I was going to climb with him in Utah. I noticed this just today, wondered where he was and why I'd not heard from him recently.

It's come as a great 'shock', and I am really sorry to hear this sad and bad news.

RIP stymingersfink. I can only hope he passed quickly without any suffering or pain.

Thought about Daryn the other day while driving through Castle Valley, heading home from my road trip. His last email to me ended with "The thing about opportunities is, they don't come around too often." I think about that often, and it pushes me during those times when I'm not at 100%.

We miss ya, dude.

Thanks for sharing. He's quite right of course.

We miss him alright, I think about him too, especially when I come on here. I should think he'd be happy to know we are all thinking of him and aren't likely to forget him, not that he'd be one to forget Smile

When I went through a bad patch he was very supportive, between my job change, and shared the anger of it all, but gave good advice too, bless him, e.g. that last job I was happy to walk from and not see those useless bad managers ever again; but he encouraged me to meet with them anyway with the Union as the Union wanted me to and tell them what I felt strongly about etc, he was right of course, and I fed it all back to him after, I left with a good payout etc so it was all wise words.

Amusingly, whenever there was a gap between interacting with Sty, I'd message him, and at the same time he'd say I was just about to do the same thing.

Well one of his last emails to me was more worrying, he'd been busy driving a lot with his work, around Idaho around that time, not getting much rest from what I gather, or not enough time to go climbing, though he was still managing to fit that in as I remember him telling me one day he was going to wait for his friend to show up for a climb the next morning. He'd also recently moved.

This was the 2nd to last email I received from him, on Aug 14th after I'd asked how he'd been? I liked his joking humour that still shone through despite the worrying side of things, and of course I understood what he meant - his end sentence at the bottom.

"... things been going uh... well? Crazy


About three weeks ago, my roommate found me in bed in the middle of a seizure, She called the medics, they came and assessed my situation, recommended I go to the hospital and get checked out. So, my other roommate drove me to the hospital, where they gave me a CT scan and did some blood work. CT showed no tumors, bloodwork showed nothing unusual. I was referred to a neurologist for follow-up.

I visited a neurologist the following week, and after going through his assessment, he figured that I the seizure was brought on by a long-term lack of sleep quality/quantity. With the statistic that 50% of people who experience a seizure never experience another one, he recommended that I work on getting more and better sleep, but that if I have another seizure I'll have to go on anti-seizure meds and we'll dig deeper.

Meh.

Well, the sleep thing has been a long-running thing for me, ever since my little Yosemite experience in the fall of '05 ...


Where you been lately? Busy with the new jorb, you take a wee bit of a climbing vacation, or just a vacation from this particular form of idiocy? Tongue



You do realize what I was inferring with my cut short "puking" comment, right? Angelic

What a knowledgeable person he was. I always appreciated his candid insight on any climbing related topic.

He will be missed, and I will definitely raise a glass to his spirit.

Peace be with you.

You put me through the paces when I was new, and you were a truly recognizable member of this forum.

I've read some hilarious input from you on this site, and I do believe that we may have come to an agreement on something, once.

You really knew your stuff and it showed through past the jokes and general forum shenanigans.

I am genuinely sad to hear of your passing; you'll be missed here and elsewhere. Even though I never knew you as more than a forum vet, and a climber who knew more infinitely more than I, I do know that your time came far too soon. May you rest in peace, Daryn. My condolences to family and friends.

Brendan

Hello to everyone and best wishes, long time no see!

FYI: Tomorrow is Daryn's one-year anniversary, and we're remembering Sty by taking his ashes up to Lone Peak, a beautiful, rugged granite peak here in the Wasatch. Lone Peak was a favorite place of Daryn's and he often talked about making the trip back up there. His friends Matt, Jen, Howie, myself, and his Dad, Daryl, will make the trek. Erin we will for sure miss you, so sorry you cannot make it out, we will be thinking of you! All the rc.com folks, we'll take your thoughts and prayers with us. One thing I can say for sure: its going to be an absolutely gorgeous day.
Smile Angelic Sly

"Burn One Down"

Let us burn one from end to end,
And pass it over to me my friend.
Burn it long, we'll burn it slow,
To light me up before I go.

If you don't like my fire, then don't come around,
'cause I'm gonna burn one down.
Yes, I'm gonna burn one down.

My choice is what I choose to do,
And if I'm causing no harm, it shouldn't bother you.

Your choice is who you choose to be,
And if you're causin' no harm, then you're alright with me.

If you don't like my fire, then don't come around,
'cause I'm gonna burn one down.
Yes, I'm gonna burn one down.

Herb the gift from the earth,
And what's from the earth is of the greatest worth.
So before you knock it try it first,
Oh, you'll see it's a blessing and not a curse.

If you don't like my fire, then don't come around,
'cause I'm gonna burn one down.
Yes, I'm gonna burn one, oohhh.

Just checking in on the thread. A lot of people think that this socializing on forums doesn't mean much, but this goes to show that it actually does to many of us. Sometimes you never get to meet that other person, but it's all good.

Thanks for the update. My thoughts and prayers for you and your friends as you make this trip for Daryn. He's missed even by those of us who only knew him as an e-person.

Has it been a year already?

I'm sitting at home raising a craft brew as I'm out of scotch. A toast to Daryn.
