I am glad that he had no pain when he passed away. I was fascinated by his commitment to trading although he was in a bad condition. This guy was one of the most passionate traders on futures.io (formerly BMT). I wish that his family will cope with the pain.
R.I.P., Andy Zektzer

I have only been on this forum a short time but I sent you a PM the other day and you took the time to respond, to me that speaks volumes about you. You are a true legend on this forum and your memory will live on and you will for sure be an inpsiration for all traders on futures.io (formerly BMT). RIP Andy, you are a great loss to all who have been in contact with you.

Thanks: 216 given,
I share your sentiments and wording too.
Andy was able to take broken shards of pottery in all of us as traders and make us whole, and together we were able to carry volumes of water that none of us even dreamed were possible, but we aspired to do at some time.
His good works will go right along with him, as he awaits his calling too.
I am trying to type with tears in my eyes, on my hands and in my heart. I talked often with Andy, and did what I could to bear him up. We text messaged when we could, even the last posts were encouraging and inspiring to both of us, as we both took the approach of looking forward irrespective of the obvious. He did wonderfully, in surviving cancer and in participating on these threads, as a distraction from his health. To have survived so long and with such resolution and focus is a testament and tribute that is worthy of this memorial we have contributed to.
Thanks guys for expressing your sincere comments.
Thanks Richard / Zondor for your tireless care and help.
Thanks ChipolteBob, ZT, Zondor, Sykes, Gomi, and forgive me if I can't remember the others too.
We all come from such complex, compound and varying technical backgrounds and bring these skillsets towards our individual endeavours towards trading in the hope that we don't have to return to those careers. Big Mike's Forum has taken off like wild fire because it tapped into a niche of sophisticated retail investors who combine (at least, what they want to share and however much they wish to contribute and participate) their mind-share towards that goal of individual success. For that I solute you too.
These forums provided an amazing outlet for Andy to participate in his limited health conditions and when he could, go out for a spin on his motorcycle(s). These forums provided a means of interaction with so many others, and from that lofty perch he was able to assemble a group of outstanding bright lights / candles, as it were, and together we made some incredible discoveries and achievements possible, that simply would not have been possible otherwise. For that, again, I salute Andy!
We have all been honored to have known him, and to (whatever extent you have become familiar with his work and frequent published recorded events) have seen his work.
(all the best)
I rest easy knowing that (again, I say) his good works go right along with him!
