    Am I the only one thought his avatar a polar bear?



    One moment distant, the next . . how-in-the-hell-did-that-giant-move-so-fast?

    I had the impression he’d have been good to know in person. Something I feel about quite a few here, but let’s say, not the polar bear.

    Just now seeing this.....

    Prayers during the family mourning and prayers for healing. Not much one can really say that words can really express.

    Rest in peace Tallman

    And if anyone is wondering, he WAS tall. Had to crane my neck up to look him in the eye.

    RIP and 73, Dennis.

    When I saw the announcement from CK, I had to step back and reflect on what he meant to me...

    Yes, he had opinions - doesn't everyone?

    He also had a sense of humor.

    Which helps in dealing with Anyone...

    He taught me a lot.

    Although I never met him personally, I met him thru this common ground of the Forum and helped me put my feet on the right path.

    "No one ever regretted missing work for spending more time with Family."

    He worked hard to provide for his, and spent time with the rest of us while he could.

    The world has lost a good man - but in the life he lived while on this Earth, he touched many lives.

    He will be missed

    Oh man! So so sorry to hear this. I've only known Dennis on the radio, and a few times on the phone. He was helping me with swr problems. I sure liked to talk with the Tallman.
    RIP BROTHER, you will definitely be missed by this old boy. Dammit Man, I can't believe this. I'm super bummed.
    Silverado 996 if your reading this, I will sure miss your Dad, and all the fun we had on the air. I also know how proud of you he was. Please convey my deepest sympathy to your family for me. My thoughts and prayers to y'all.
    God's speed Dennis!
    Tom
