DUer pinto has died. [View all]

Last edited Sun Aug 16, 2015, 02:44 PM - Edit history (3)

I don't have any details. His twin sister posted on Facebook this morning that there will be a celebration of his life on Sunday, August 23.

pinto was a staple in the Cooking & Baking and Religion groups. He had served as a long-term moderator on DU2, and on MIRT and as a main forums host on DU3.

His last post was a week ago today in C&B.

4. Not a clue. LOL, my sister stood me up for a lunch date today, so I'm winging it.

She just lost track of time or forgot. Retired after 30+ years of living by an appointment book (hairdresser) so I can't blame her.


I'll post details when I have them.

From pinto's dearest friend, worldfamouslois:

97. DUer pinto has died

Hi everyone-I just finally figured out how to do this-I am a long time friend of his and his family.-If you want to contact me please feel free- I'm am new to this site, not sure how to navigate so I get your messages. Not to mention my grief is over whelming right now and life is a huge fog.

One thing I would like to have passed along is that if any one wants to honor his memory he would love it if you made a donation to SLO Bangers Syringe Exchange-He was instrumental in helping us stay funded to stay open from day one as our grant writer. He made sure we could provide access to free syringes,free HIV/HEPC testing and to provide naloxone to save lives. If you so feel inclined to do so you can contact me and I will give you info on how to do so.

thank you all !


And the donation link, thanks to MADem. Please specify that the donation is for the needle exchange. It meant a lot to pinto.
