    He had massive bleeding in the brain all of a sudden. They life flighted him to Las Vegas but there was nothing the doctors could do. Jay's wife Gay plans on posting more details soon. She really needs all our support during this most difficult time.

    I still have a couple of old Grumbacher striping brushes he sent me to try out. Every time I told him I was sending them back he had a convenient excuse for me to keep them a little longer.

    Jay was great.

    Our prayers go out to his wife and family!

    Jay was an exceptional writer of not just posts here, but his fiction and books were well written as well.

    I also enjoyed his techical posts. His creativity extended past the keyboard and writing into the shop and how to build things simply and safely.

    He will be missed here on the HAMB, but more so at home by his family.
  5. C9, Jay I feel fortunate to have know you over the internet, respected the depth of your knowledge and the love of the hobby we all enjoy.
    May God comfort you and your family in this time of need.

  7. Hello everyone---This is Jay's wife Gay. I'm so, so sorry that all of you found out the way you did. Writing all of you was on my list of things to do, but I seem kind of paralysed {wrong sp,}. He died Sun. Nov. 15 of a massive brain bleed. They air lifted him from here to Vegas. Our daughter and son{inlaw{ live there and were able to meet the helicopter and walk into the hospital with him. Deb,daughter and I got there about 3 hours later. He was gone probably before we got there but they kept him on life support as long as we need him. Our pregnant granddaughter and boyfriend were able to be there, too. Our other two grandchildren live out of state. We thank all of you for your messages today. I especially liked the ones about him driving on the heavenly roads. C9 used that name because our last name is Carnine. We will be reading further posts. We are so deeply sorry for the loss of such an awesome, wise, loving, super intelligent man.

    This is such sad news. I can honestly say that whenever I would log on the message board I would never miss reading posts by C9. His knowledge was seemingly infinite and his way with words was endearing. I really enjoyed reading his posts. Another of his gifts was the way his spirit would shine through his words. He seemed a very good soul. Although I never met him personally I can honestly say this place will suffer greatly from the lack of his presence.

    Godspeed C9. You will be missed.

    Prayers for your peace Mrs. C9 and my sincere condolences.
  20. Thank you,Denise for the pictures. I'm sure we have them, but who knows where!! Gay

    Kingman, Arizona - The place on the way to other places....


    Wow what a shock. I'm so sorry to hear this.

    We were just in Kingman and I kept talking about "my friend" C9. Especially, when I saw pictures of old aluminum mags being stored in the old power plant before it was restored. My wife finally asked "Have you ever actually met this guy?" I realized I hadn't but felt like I surely must have, he was always cool and helpful and had both good taste in cars and guns (we have the same obscure Ruger 10-22T).

    Just yesterday, I was telling my dad we need to go the the Kingman Street
    Drags and I planned to look Jay up and maybe meet at that Mexican place on Andy Devine.

    I guess that will have to wait for another trip down the road.

    I really loved his stories, a great staple member of the HAMB family to be deeply missed, definitely irreplaceable.

    Wow, this sucks. I never met him but did read many of his posts, what a cool guy. Godspeed C9
  27. I always enjoyed reading Jay's posts & stories, both the technical & the thoughtful/insightful ones. I don't believe that I remember him ever saying anything negative, even when a post/poster was completely off-base....instead Jay would gently "redirect", using some sort of specific example, to prove his point. By his stories, he seemed to be someone who gave a lot of thought as to why we do this hobby/obsession, and was one of the few who are actually able to translate thoughts into words. I know that our loss pales next to yours, but please know that we will miss him here on the H.A.M.B. My condolences to you and your children & family.
