Very sad he will be missed, very helpful guy...
Very sad indeed . He will be missed by many ...
A link to his website ...
Damn....I can't say i knew him personaly but he always was taunting me with LC/tube upgrades on various boards with a smile. Damn good CRT poster too, very helpful, will be missed. Sad news indeed.
(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.
Too sad for words Andy . Heres somthing from better days ...
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.
Wow, heart felt condolences for everyone who knew him.
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.
