I never met Zepher. I barely messaged with him. Yet his passing left quite the impact as I found myself in tears as others recalled stories of past times.

I'll be honest. Ive always seen this board as a fun interesting hobby I genuinely care about, but also as a side income. Sure, I've made some contacts here I'd consider personal friends, but the loss of Zepher made me totally re-evaluate my view towards this board. Truly, it is impeccable community that has been organically been born, mutually developed & progressed to the point that the value of all items come secondary to the community aspect. Yes, we may involve in valuable transactions, however, what both parties want is to come out happy for all involved when the deal is done. That's caring for your fellow man. I cannot fathom how a group of vastly different individuals from around the world congregated to create a legitimate micro society. Thank Satoshi.  Nobody here is a 'customer'. We are all collectors and Zepher was one of the most devout - aiding some fellow collectors in ways you'd never imagine.  A true legend. 

Long Live Z.

Always hard to hear of a forum member who has passed away.
I hadnt contact with the user personally but from his profile page it looks like he was very active with alot of well known members in the community and was popular person to many people who he did have trades and conversations with.
Rest in peace zepher.

Zepher provided his service as escrow for my first- ever valuable trade on this forum.
He was very kind, helpful, and showed a great amount of honesty and professionalism. He was the kind of person that got me into this hobby. Therefor I trusted him with a rather large amount of money, even though It was the first time I dealt with him. Thereafter we had a chat every now and then and traded multiple crypto collectables. It was always a pleasure dealing with him. I bought multiple items in his last- ever auction, hosted on this forum. Every time I see my kialara gold, it reminds me of Zepher, calling me out for getting a good deal on it. He was without a doubt one of my favorites out here, and will be really missed by me, and without any doubt, many more of us, crypto collectors. He told me he was having health issues,  but I never expected it to end like this. Not So young... Zepher was a great person. A real asset to this small community of crypto friends.

Rest In peace my friend.

Oh man.  It's been close to a year since I logged in to the forum, and looking back at my messages close to 2 years since I talked to Zepher.  This news is extremely sad, and I felt I had to log in and share my experience with him.  B was the most trustworthy and friendly person I've dealt with here, and I will miss his seemingly endless knowledge of everything crypto collecting.  He was always the first person I would go to if I had a question, and was always immediate with an honest and genuine response.  On several occasions, I trusted him with very large to me sums of money without hesitation, and was never disappointed.  Wish I would have had the privilege of meeting him in person, but will cherish the conversations I had with him here on the forums.  My thoughts are with his family & loved ones.  Coming from some random American he met on the internet, I find it only appropriate to end this message the same way he always did with me.

A few days ago we have received the horrible news that Zepher has suddenly passed away. Since we haven't heard from him in a while one of us tried contacting him through his eBay account. His mom replied saying that he has passed away on January 16th. The cause of death is still unknown but we knew Zepher has been struggling with health issues over the past years. We have been in contact with his mother and she is blown away by all the people that reached out so far. She wasn't aware of the huge amount of people that have been friends with him.

Zepher has been a very active member of the Collectibles community and was well known for helping others (as his trust page well reflects). Zepher has traded with many of you, organized huge group buys and even went to China to personally pick up BTCC coins for some of you. He was truely dedicated to this forum section and according to his mother he always spoke with pride about his collectibles. Zepher was a great friend, an awesome collector and he'll be truelly missed.

Feel free to leave Zepher a message, share a good story about him or express your condolences in this topic. I will have all messages printed in a hardback book and give it to his mother.

Looking at all the comments above seems like Zepher was a great person. Never personally met him or dealt with him but I can understand the pain of loosing a great team member which happen to me and few other people when suddenly we lost a great team member from one of our game rooms whom we have never met but always talked and cared about with each other like a family.

Having said that from the message above it seems like Anon will be meeting his mother sometime.

As a community, I have created a raffle to send some BTC to his family.

Its taken me a while to post here. I had hoped to find some words that would be appropriate, but there arent really any

Zepher was the bitcoiner that lived closest to me (actually very close). So I got to see him fairly often, have a cuppa, put the world to rights, and show off the collectables. I will miss that incredibly.

Z had had his health problems for a long time, and they took their toll on him in many ways. But unless you knew, you would never guess. He had gotten used to carrying on regardless.

As many people had said, in his periods of good health, Z sure knew how to party. He would have a good time, and make sure those around him did as well.

He loved this place, and the people he became close to through it. It has been very reassuring seeing everyone rally round. His family have taken great comfort from all of the kind messages they have received from people all over the world they dont know. It has shone a light to a part of his life that they didnt know much about, and they have been pleasantly surprised by the high regard people here held Z in. I know he would have liked that a lot

He was a black or white kind of a guy. No inbetweens. Fiercely protective of this forum, and happy to have his account painted red, if it meant he was saving someone else from the risk of being scammed

I will miss him a lot. I will miss talking about something and nothing, just chewing the fat, having a laugh.

Taken far too young, gone but not forgotten. Rest in Peace Zepher

It's taken me some time to get here myself, so much to say .... 🤷‍♂️

I first met Z online here when he returned to the forum 2 or 3 years ago after a very long hiatus. Strangely enough, we connected on so many levels, I felt like I had literally found a brother. Long story short, we spent countless hours chatting on slack or whatever the medium of the week was. We finally ended up meeting last year around this time in the UK for CoinFestUK. We spent the better part of a week hanging out and partying like rock stars in Manchester with a few different and awesome people from our collectibles group. Grin

To say he was a nice guy is nowhere near proper - He was a fine gentlemen who would give you the shirt of his back if he needed to. And I don't mean mine, I mean anybody.  He also had one of the best senses of humor you could ever ask for. One of those people that are the life of the party, someone that everyone seemed to want to be around.

I never got to speak to him again since ~July of last year. I will always regret not being able to talk to him again after that. I still feel like I have so much to tell him, but on the other hand, I truly hope he is in a better place with no more worries and pain. 🙏

Lastly, Zepher - As we always said, "Friends till the end". I hope to see you again next time, that's for certain. Wink

Rest in peace my brother. 🚀

Though I have never interacted with Zepher in person or in chats, it is really disheartening to hear a community member passed away. I visit the collectibles section quite often and see Zepher organizing up some auctions/raffles and his friendly talks with other forum members. But those happy times with Zepher will be missed for sure, also he was an outstanding member of the community. Initially as a tribute to his contributions, I thought of engraving his name on the bitcoin blockchain as a part of a transaction to his address using the OP_RETURN function, but since that is frowned upon and bad to the bitcoin itself I have dropped the idea.

Wherever you are right now, we believe you will be as happy as you were in this life and stay healthy.

My deepest condolences to his loving mother and his family.

We miss you and RIP (Return If Possible) buddy!  Cry

Regards
Heisenberg

I’m just now hearing the terrible news.  Some of the older guys may remember me but I was active a while back and got to know Zepher pretty well.  We hoped to meet up when my work brought me near him but it never did...that will weigh on me for a long time.  I believe you make time for what’s important to you and I screwed up on that point. 

I second all the great things said about him and this community.  We had a heart to heart conversation about a year ago about topics bigger than crypto that I’ll never forget.  He will be sorely missed.  RIP

Not to cast a shadow on this event but why does this person need a donation address?

I'm being very skeptical if his family is asking for help with the funeral costs, the amount of scams I've seen that looked legit are staggering.

Please don't take offence to this.

There are plenty of us here that have known zepher either on a personal level or a professional level, I can say there is no ill intent with this.  I'm not condoning it or pushing it, the new anon was merely doing this because I think many people asked so it can be done in an organized manner.

Unfortunatly I never met Zeph irl but it was just awesome to chat with him or read his ideas and comments on bitcointalk.
Once I won a Lealana coin in a raffle he hosted. Will keep this coin forever.

Zepher,

There are no words that can describe what you meant to me or many others here but I owe it to you to at least try.

When I first joined here you immediately took me under your wing to show me the ropes and how to behave to achieve success. For this I owe you everything
because if not for you I'd probably still be stuck at a 9to5 job hating myself and everything around me. Not only did you help me out with a horrible gambling
addiction but also when it came to my relationship with my Mrs. I truly hope that I helped you with your issues whenever you reached out to me too, at least in my
mind we had a really good give and take relationship. That's why you mean so damn much to me, you always treated me as an equal and for that I am ever grateful.

Regardless of if it was our late, late night plannings of the next raffle which we were both so extremely passionate about or our friendly poker games we always
had a tonne of fun while also learning new things. Whether we invested money in the next big shitcoin or bounced ideas for a new collectible we just always
had fun. This is how I'll remember you, someone that I could always reach out to when life was keeping me down and I needed to feel better. You were always there
no matter the time of day.

I will forever blame myself for not getting the chance to meetup with you, but even though it never happened you must know that you meant more to me than other people
I have in my life that I see daily. I don't think I've ever felt such a strong bond with anyone that I've never met before and I'm not sure what it is
that made it so but I just always knew I could rely on you and tell you things I've never told anyone else.

It is with a heavy heart that I'm writing this and it took me days to do it.. You will be missed, more than I can ever describe. I feel an unbareable sadness
and emptiness but I know that you are now in a better place. From now until forever, may we meet again one day.

Hampus

I've been postponing writing here, since I honestly don't know what to say...

Zepher and I have talked quite a lot over the past few years, not as much as others, but still, I'm disappointed that I've only ever met them once (even though it was legendary).
They have given so much of themselves to the forum (especially the collectibles community) and for that I will always be grateful.

You will be missed and I hope you are in a better place now.
