John Walter Russell, RIP

This is Rob Bennett, owner of the site at www.PassionSaving.com.

I have sad news to impart to regular readers of this site and to all members of the Retire Early and Indexing discussion-board communities, which John Walter Russell (my good friend and the author of all of the material that has appeared at this site thus far) has served so well for over seven years now. John died on Tuesday, October 27, 2009, of emphysema. He was 63 years old. He had been ill for some time but the death came as a shock. He found much joy in the last seven years of his life generating the material that appears at this site and helping thousands of middle-class investors discover a more effective and reasonable way to invest for retirement.

John expressed a desire that this site be transferred to me upon his death. The site is now in my hands.

63 and emphysema...likely another victim of tobacco addiction.

Emphysema is an ugly way to die. Condolences to JWR's widow.

Nevertheless, what I wrote 3 1/2 years ago is a fitting epitaph. It was true in 2005 and nothing changed until he took his last breath. The last five years of his public life consisted entirely of
  • JWR talking to himself
  • JWR lecturing someone who dares to interrupt while he is talking to himself
  • JWR quoting himself
  • Spouting column after column of meaningless numbers
  • Patting hocus on the back

Sad, but true.

Hocus, are you listening?
