Response to We lost Dr. Charles Metz today

Over the years I think we can all admit that Charles Metz either helped us personally, or through posting answers asked by others, indirectly. I have been a Hyperscaler for a decade and a half and while there have been many wonderful people here Dr. Metz was perhaps the best of the best. I have never seen someone answer questions as thoroughly and completely as he did. His passion for the hobby as well as his genuine niceness always showed through. He was the voice of reason many times in postings that were heating up very quickly. I never once saw him reply in anything other than a gracious manner to questions that some here felt were needlessly redundant and of no merit.

All of us here who knew him and were touched by his passion, enthusiasm and plain heartfelt niceness. those who did not know him personally were also enriched by his mere presence on whatever modeling forum he visited.

RIP Dr. Metz.
