    In the 10 years that I've owned x10Hosting I've had the opportunity to meet all kinds of people from all over the world. In fact, x10Hosting would not be here today without the help of many of them. Some of these people I've kept in touch with, some are still here on the forum volunteering their time. Some are busy with life and come by every few years just to say "Hi". I've seen people graduate high school, graduate college, get married, have kids. And now unfortunately I have to add passed away to this list. I just learned today that one of our members, @carl6969 will not be coming back to say "Hi" anymore.

    Before Facebook, Twitter and the other popular social media platforms we had forums. While the forums aren't as active today as they once were they've always been an integral part of x10Hosting. A place for people to get help, to learn, to volunteer their time. David fell into this last category. If you've been a member here for more then a few years you would have had the pleasure of knowing David, or more than likely, you would have been helped by him. It takes a special type of person to give up their free time to help others. We were lucky David was one of those people. Our continued success as a company is due in no small part to David and the other community volunteers that have given up so much of their time to selflessly help people they'll never know or meet.

    I'll always remember David as being one of the most helpful, patient, and knowledgeable members that we had. Even though David is gone now, the knowledge and help he imparted through thousands of posts over years of time will be forever archived on our forum and will continue to help the random searcher of information as Google directs them to one of our threads where they'll find an answer by @carl6969

    Rest In Peace David Deland

    Oh my dear! I'll miss him a lot. I remember back in those days, how helpful he was, back when I joined x10. Good ol' 2007.

    I really wish I had stayed around here on x10 and talked to him a lot more. Back when I first joined x10 and through the years, would always have a blast with him on the x10 IRC. Definitely going to miss him.

    I know I'm a year late, but RIP Mr. Deland. You were definitely a core part of x10 and I'm going to miss all those good times on IRC with you.

    I never knew David either Corey, but i can see that his passing brought you a real saddness, and im sorry for your loss personally, as well as the loss to the many that he was able to help. That in itself is a great tribute to a obviously selfless person. Im sure he would be pleased with being remembered here.
