    It saddens me deeply to announce that well known forum member and original moderator here Joe Warren - jw007 - has passed away. More recently here he was posting under the name AHF.

    Details are sparse just now, but he left us yesterday.

    Joe had been struggling with illness in recent years, and had withdrawn from the forum spotlight for the greater part - but I am sure many of you remember him, and will be saddened by this news.

    For those that knew him well, please leave some thoughts and memories.

    For those that didn't we ask only for your respect on this sad day.

    I'll leave some deeper thoughts of my own, once I've collected them.

    Rest in peace Iron Warrior.

    I never met the man in person but I knew him from forums for 8 years.
    We talked often and he always had great advice, time and help for me.
    I am truly upset to hear this :-(

    RIP you strong green fucker. (original hulk avatar)

    I loved your wind ups not taking things seriously and having a laugh, you always chipped in to help many, I am sure you had a hand in helping alot of the strength guys reach their goals.

    You will be missed alot IMO, I am sure many are deep in shock especially those your helped more closely.....

    Still find it hard to believe tbh

    My god!!!!

    Very sad news!

    Gutted, top bloke, learnt a lot from him regarding training.

    Always liked his posting style and brutal honesty. Quite the wind up merchant at times, but a decent bloke.

    Thoughts to his family.

    Gutted over this when I heard it this morning. Joe was my inspiration from the UKM years, I didn't have a clue and he guided me with kindness and knowledge which went far beyond what most people would have done. I just think he was a truly kind and sincere guy. Also he was a real funny guy with lots and lots of knowledge.

    To say he will be sorely missed is an absolute understatement.

    RIP Joe (feel for little Ruby).
