    Hi,

    (I know there is another thread here about this but I wished to add my own thread)

    Mrking (Conny Johansson) died in a car accident on Thursday 30/8/2007.

    "A Guy with a vision for keeping crt alive in scandinavia and the rest of the world."

    Above that he was a personal friend of mine.

    We spoke weekly about things CRT and life in general.

    I remember his unusual jokes, He spoke English very well but jokes never seemed to translate well, Infact we had more of a laugh together about what the actual joke should have been.

    He was planning a blend in his showroom, and a visit here.

    Conny you are in my thoughts, and very sadly missed.

    (Know that I cant type for crying...............)

    Andy, "Insaine Mr H" as you always called me.

    It's difficult to find adequate words to express the shock and sadness I felt at hearing such tragic news.

    Although I only knew the online persona of Mr King there was still a strong sense of camaraderie from a passion shared that makes his passing all the sadder.

    My condolences to his family on their loss.

    His contributions here will be missed, he was informative and helpful, but of course this is a trivial concern in comparison with the loss his loved ones have suffered - my condolences.

    Not many people can say that they made even a small difference to the World they live in, but I think that Conny did. This really hit me when I heard about today, as though I couldn't claim to know him, I felt as if I did. Things won't be quite the same ever again. A tragic loss for us and his family.

    He helped people out with their crt doubts and questions without trying to sell them anything or even mentioning he had parts & projectors to sell.

    Sharing unbiased information made him very respected as a forum member and CRT dealer.

    I knew him for about a year and a half and I've been talking a lot trough msn to him the last months many times about non-home-theater-related stuff, and i considered him to be more of a friend than a dealer.

    I really feel i lost a friend, so i imagine how people who have known him for years feel.

    My condolences to his family and friends including Andy who seemed to be one of the few guys also-in-the business he really liked and respected.

    Jorge
