    Unhappy DC Burny aka Svengoolie aka Dante Bonaparte passed away on 3/7/17

    His mother called me the morning she found him. He was notorious on this board and others. I often teased him that there was never a board or facebook group that he wasn't kicked out of.

    We were friends for over 10 years. We spoke to each other often on the phone, and it was a rare week that we didn't speak for 3 hours or more. He had one face for the world and another for those he trusted. If you knew him on facebook, and you blocked him he understood.

    One of our board members wrote this as a eulogy on facebook:

    Daniel Christopher Burny, 43-year-old resident of Florida, former USMC soldier and law enforcement officer passed away at home on 3/7/2017. Always outspoken and unapologetic for his controversial conservative views, he was without fail a good friend to even those who disagreed vehemently with him. A loyal, stand up guy who taught me that friendship can overule and transcend differences of political ideology. I shall miss my friend, but know he has passed me on the trail in the night to ride ahead and keep the fire burning in the darkness at the camp waiting for me to catch up.it was a great honor to be considered as your friend my brother. Until we meet again- this life for me shall never again be the same without you.
    I couldn't have said it better myself.

    His mother is struggling with his final expenses, and if you knew him please consider contributing:https://www.gofundme.com/daniels-final-expenses

    His joy in life was writing, and he had great stories to tell. I'll miss him.

    PS Sorry for the formatting. It doesn't seem to recognize returns or most bbcodes at the moment. [edit] I've sorted it, Neil

    Christ... How sad

    Any idea how he died?
    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Not certain. I know he had high blood pressure that he was not treating due to lack of insurance.

    America is exceedingly modern but not always civilized.

    Damn, I remember he used to post on here a lot in the old days, often getting peoples backs up! 43 is no age at all, I'm 35 now and things like this make you wonder how long you have yourself, I lost my dad last year at 59 and that was far too young as well. Enjoy life while you can!

    Just an update - his mother received enough donations to handle his final expenses and he has a respectful urn. He is now home, and she is immensely grateful.

    For anyone interested... the primary cause of death was congestive heart failure. 90% blockage. 90%. Although he worked out often his diet and genes killed him. He also hated going to the doctors. His mother told me to post the information in the hopes that folks would get regular check ups.
