    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.

    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

    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!

    I moved this from my post in another thread.

    This has been in circulation for a while. It seems to me, Murray took full advantage of being Canadian. Good for you Murray

    An Australian's Definition of a Canadian

    In case anyone asks you who a Canadian is . . .

    You probably missed it in the local news, but there was a report that someone in Pakistan had advertised in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed a Canadian – any Canadian.

    An Australian dentist wrote the following editorial to help define what a Canadian is, so they would know one when they found one:

    A Canadian can be English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. A Canadian can be Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, Arab, Pakistani, or Afghan.

    A Canadian may also be a Cree, Metis, Mohawk, Blackfoot, Sioux, or one of the many other tribes known as native Canadians. A Canadian’s religious beliefs range from Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, or none. In fact, there are more Muslims in Canada than in Afghanistan. The key difference is that in Canada they are free to worship as each of them chooses. Whether they have a religion or no religion, each Canadian ultimately answers only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

    A Canadian lives in one of the most prosperous lands in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which recognize the right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

    A Canadian is generous and Canadians have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return. Canadians welcome the best of everything, the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best services, and the best minds.

    But they also welcome the least - the oppressed, the outcast, and the rejected.

    These are the people who built Canada. You can try to kill a Canadian if you must as other bloodthirsty tyrants in the world have tried but in doing so you could just be killing a relative or a neighbour. This is because Canadians are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, can be a Canadian.
