Carnak, aka Abby, has passed away.
The shocking news of Carnak (his name on this site) has passed away. I read the news of this on the other channels. I have no other details. He was always a giving person who would share his vast knowledge of HVAC with anyone.
Rip Abby you will be missed
Okay thanks. I missed this when jmac posted it.

My sincere condolences to his family.
I, as many have, had the opportunity to take advantage of his knowledge, which will be missed.
As a Canadian, who worked some time ago for a company with a branch/depot in Thunder Bay, I always felt a slight connection to him, even though he worked in the Caribbean. With Carnak in the Caymans and my wife, being from Barbados, this only added to the connection. I never had the opportunity to meet him like others did on this site, but I sure would have liked to.
Again, I hope those that were close to him can find some peace from the knowledge he was extremely well respected and liked with this forum
Is this a Fabreze moment? C.Y.D. I'm voting white elephant. 2¢.
My competition are my best salespeople!
I was just talking to him last week too.
Anybody have an address we can send a card to?
Details are sketchy at best, but it's been confirmed by a call to his office.
I would bet that in the next 24-48 hours details will be available via the internet concerning Murray.
I would watch Grand Cayman and Thunder Bay, Ont. news feeds.
A good contributing forum member. He replied to me on many of my threads, he will be missed.
You don't have to ASK
What I'm Against...
If you know what
I have met the man twice.......as much of a gentleman in person as online....
tears in my eyes......he was a true educator.......and a friend to us all
It's Time To Be Nice To People
I met Murray also. A good guy. A sad day for all of us on all the sites. Murray we will meet up again later.
I'm shocked and saddened. Murray and I exchanged emails and pm's occasionally but never met in person, though I wish I could have met him. I enjoyed his posts and sense of humor online, and his knowledge was well seasoned.
You will be sorely missed here at hvac-talk, Murray, as I'm sure those who knew you well will be grieving and missing you as well. R.I.P. and keep 'em cool up there!

- Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
- HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.
A building is NOT beautiful unless it is also comfortable.
