I only came in here to post a **** take thread.
Quinn was the first person I met off an Alfa forum. I was 21 at at the time, naive and slightly surprised by his brummy accent. I'd sold him a squdra chip for his 155 via the close knit 155.com forum.
Trusting, as always, he'd driven up up from Birmingham, allowed me to verify that his ecu was compatible, take it apart, and fit a replacement chip. He put his trust in me, a fat, spotty, teenager who claimed (arrogantly) to know what they were doing.
At the time he described the forum as family - "We're here to help each other after all" And consequently helped define my relationship with Alfa Romeo and the forums.
We stayed in touch for a number of years, spoke regularly, and with concern discussed other forum members. Be it their state of mind or their health, it didn't matter. He always cared about the people he interacted with, friend or foe, I know he was fond of both, never judgemental and relished their thoughts, opinions, regardless of wether they differed from his perspective.
For me this is what defined him. His continual curiosity for other people's perspective.
I, for one, am deeply saddened to hear that he's gone.
