I am sad to say that FresnoBeeDude has passed. He didn't post that much recently, but his story was one of success.

This is a link to his story. http://www.hanfordsentinel.com/articles/2007/09/22/news/doc46f4ae8aded00723518966.txt

When he passed last weekend, he was training for a triathlon. He kept living his dream.

Well, it has not been a good week for 3fc, has it? I am very sorry to hear this. FresnoBeeDude is one of the people I looked to for inspiration when my own would fail me. He truly showed the world what amazing things could be accomplished with determination. My sincere condolences go out to his family and friends.

So sad. These sudden deaths are so hard, the grief and loss is the same , in addition you have to deal with the shock of the suddeness of it, I did enjoy reading his posts and wish his family and friends condolances at this time.

I am so sorry to hear this.

To his brother and other loved ones: I thought this dude from Fresno was truly incredible. Within the last week, prior to seeing this topic, I have related his story to two people in my life. One of them is a male relative who weighs around 400 lbs or so and is going to give it another shot.

On previous diets, and as recent as last year, I used to make jokes to my husband along the lines of -- if I were going to die, I'd just keep eating my fattening food. But now that I have lost over 100 lbs, I know what FresnoBeeDude must've known, too, even better than I: that becoming healthy is living life to the fullest.

He took an incredible journey, and he accomplished so much for one human being. FresnoBeeDude lived.
