DUer pinto has died.

Last edited Sun Aug 16, 2015, 02:44 PM - Edit history (3)

I don't have any details. His twin sister posted on Facebook this morning that there will be a celebration of his life on Sunday, August 23.

pinto was a staple in the Cooking & Baking and Religion groups. He had served as a long-term moderator on DU2, and on MIRT and as a main forums host on DU3.

His last post was a week ago today in C&B.

4. Not a clue. LOL, my sister stood me up for a lunch date today, so I'm winging it.

She just lost track of time or forgot. Retired after 30+ years of living by an appointment book (hairdresser) so I can't blame her.


I'll post details when I have them.

From pinto's dearest friend, worldfamouslois:

97. DUer pinto has died

Hi everyone-I just finally figured out how to do this-I am a long time friend of his and his family.-If you want to contact me please feel free- I'm am new to this site, not sure how to navigate so I get your messages. Not to mention my grief is over whelming right now and life is a huge fog.

One thing I would like to have passed along is that if any one wants to honor his memory he would love it if you made a donation to SLO Bangers Syringe Exchange-He was instrumental in helping us stay funded to stay open from day one as our grant writer. He made sure we could provide access to free syringes,free HIV/HEPC testing and to provide naloxone to save lives. If you so feel inclined to do so you can contact me and I will give you info on how to do so.

thank you all !


And the donation link, thanks to MADem. Please specify that the donation is for the needle exchange. It meant a lot to pinto.

47. Oh, that's sad. I never knew him personally but he did live in the same area I did.

He was an active voice for the Central Coast. Although we disagreed on some stuff, he cared about where he lived. RIP
Condolences to his sister and the rest of his family.

He was a very nice person. Maybe it was because of our user names, but when I was a newbie, he sent me some very nice PMs about posting on DU. His kindness helped me quite a bit. Then again, he probably did that for a lot of people.

RIP, pinto.

He was at DU when I joined. It's kinda weird that he has over 100,000 posts and many didn't know him (their loss). I guess he posted in groups and non-flaming threads. I post on DI, had the duck (woodpecker).


He was a really nice guy, and I never saw him do anything to make anyone think otherwise. It's a huge loss.

97. DUer pinto has died

Hi everyone-I just finally figured out how to do this-I am a long time friend of his and his family.-If you want to contact me please feel free- I'm am new to this site, not sure how to navigate so I get your messages. Not to mention my grief is over whelming right now and life is a huge fog.

One thing I would like to have passed along is that if any one wants to honor his memory he would love it if you made a donation to SLO Bangers Syringe Exchange-He was instrumental in helping us stay funded to stay open from day one as our grant writer. He made sure we could provide access to free syringes,free HIV/HEPC testing and to provide naloxone to save lives. If you so feel inclined to do so you can contact me and I will give you info on how to do so.

thank you all !

FYI if the paypal button on the link of the slosep.net page doesn't work-you can send a check made out to SLOSEP and mail it to 1351#5 Royal Way
San Luis Obispo,ca

Pinto usually took care of our website and I haven't found any info (passwords-etc) for it in order to check to see when the sites renewal payment needs to be made.

And once again we are all overwhelmed by the out pouring of love and respect for him by the DU community. Our love goes right back to ya'll

We was a terrific host and mirter, and he helped newbies learn the ropes.

He always was good at calming me and others down when agitated and was always the peacemaker.

144. Oh wow , hits me really hard .. breathe

He was a gentle soul who I moderated alongside for 10 years of my life .. Haven't been around much as I prefer to to battle head on
with republicans lately .. arguing among Liberals isn't my thing .. May Jamie rest in peace.

All my love and strength to his Family (he loved you all so much)

I'm very grateful to have shared this spacetime with him, and connected on DU. It's been a joy and a privilege.

I'll hold his family and many friends in the Light, as they deal with the pain of loss-- never an easy journey, especially with someone as loving and lovable.

Cross gently, friend. And thank you for the privilege of being able to call you that. You'll remain in my heart while I live.

sadly,
Bright

182. this is such a shock

I'm sick at hearing this news. Pinto was a regular poster on our "What's for Dinner" thread. I just can't believe it.

It's so hard to think that there won't be any more Pinto posts on our nightly thread. No more hearing about his herb garden, and his railroad-style house. I always liked to read his posts; he was creative in his approach to cooking. One sometimes gets a sense of a person, and with Pinto I sensed a gentle, inquisitive soul with a wonderful sense of humor.

I don't read the Religion forum, so I have no sense of what his beliefs were. I wish I knew, especially at a time like this.

I am immeasurably sad, and I, too, am crying.

a genetic disorder. I will be making a donation to Children's Tumor Foundation in his honor. NF has no cure at this time. I hope it had nothing to do with his passing. NF has already claimed too many friends of mine.

Pinto once told me that it was NF that gave him his screen name. One of clues a person might have NF is the amount (6 or more) of cafe-au-lait spots a person has on their body. I am guess he had several that were east to see.

Prayers for his family and friends.

An extraordinary man who led an extraordinary life. There have been some really sad losses for DU this year. But this hits home the most. Never ever once had a disagreement with pinto, a kind, gentle, wonderful person.

I was a fan. Would always read his posts and never once disagreed. No spats. A nickname I always recognized here on DU. An "old timer" a "founder" someone whose opinion I regarded. So few of those posters are left I feel.

RIP pinto. Long live his memory.

We often privately shared strategies about HIV, Hepatitis C, syringe exchange and LGBT advocacy and education.

One of the best activist I've ever met and I just had another good cry reading his obituary.
