Re: RIP Forum Legend Sbrinz

F*** me. I was just informed of his passing. RIP Alan, we've first met at the Curry Night in Lenzburg...and then later on at the Bern Dinner Club. You've always bought me a pint and were always a true gentleman and a great person to be around. Thank you for your contributions. I will have a drink on you tonight.

Re: RIP Forum Legend Sbrinz

RIP Sbrinz — thanks for starting the Bern supper club. Was thinking of you when I was at the student centre at the hospital today, so sad to read of your exit up the road to the university. You’ll be well appreciated and cared for there.

Re: RIP Forum Legend Sbrinz

Oh no, that's so sad. The rare times I attended the Bern dinner club, Alan always offered to meet for a pint (or two) beforehand. An utter gent through and through, and what a great gesture to donate his body to the Uni.
RIP Alan

Re: RIP Forum Legend Sbrinz

Goodbye Alan and thank you.

In many ways the dinner club was my first step in getting 'out there' in CH so I owe you a debt of gratitude which in true british fashion was never said out loud.

Others have said more eloquently (thank you 3Wishes) than I what a gentleman you were, all I can say is that you shall be truly missed.

Re: RIP Forum Legend Sbrinz

So so sorry to hear. He has been writing to us regularly since he was ill- and his last message to his group of friends was that it was probably his last one.

We have been thinking of him whilst away in the UK and wondering how he was getting on. Very sad, and condolences to his family. He visited us many times and we did enjoy his company. The poor man really suffered terrible since the onset of the disease and he was very very brave. RIP.

one of the first users whose posts I've been going through before the move.



Met Alan in person shortly after arrival at a dinner Club he managed. It is a sad news and a loss.

Re: RIP Forum Legend Sbrinz

Very sad news, although I’ve never met him in real, I owe him a lot for his helpful contributions to the forum, which I am sure will still be of help to people even when he is not around anymore.

My condolences to his family and friends.

Sbrinz, you will be missed.
