  • *******-----FIBERGEEK HAS PASSED AWAY-------********

    It is with deep regret I have to inform everyone on this forum that Paul Yursis, known here as FIBERGEEK, passed away yesterday. He had been diagnosed with Luekemia a few months ago, and consequently his posts ceased at that time.

    Paul was a genius, his knowledge of electronics and anodizing will stand this company in good stead for years to come. Let's face it, Paul revolutionized 'small time' anodizing, making it pretty much a fool-proof operation for the average guy. He alone developed the LCD anodizing system for us. It shook many a professional anodizer with it's simplicity and reliablity. Paul also developed the SPUTWELDER for us. We were very fortunate to have 'passed this ship in the night'.

    As soon as we have details of Paul's funeral arrangements, we will send an appropriate wreath 'To Fibergeek' from Caswell Inc and The Anodizing Forum'.

    Please leave any comments here, and I will ensure they are forwarded to his wife Olga.

    I am going to miss Pauls direction. What a terrible loss of a brilliant mind.

    I'm sure Paul and Olga appreciate your kind words. I know he enjoyed dealing with you, and this forum. If he was being obstinate, stubborn and argumentative, he was having fun.

    I'm sure many others will miss him as much as you and I will.

      My sympathy and condolences go out to all those that knew and loved Paul.
      I'm sorry that I only knew him as Fibergeek. He certainly came across as a great guy that I would have loved to know personally.
      With his words, he greatly influenced my life by encouraging me to continue with learning the LCD method of anodizing. He will be greatly missed.
      I do things.
