Strat has lost a great gamer
Permalink  
 


The Strat community has lost a good one. Kenneth Dunning "Rezzdog" founder of StratOMatic Baseball Village passed away a couple days ago. Ken and I had many conversations over the years in public and private. I'm saddened by this news. He was a great resource for gaming and running a Strat Forum. He will be missed.

Here is the Village moderator team playing Strat O Matic at Doubleday Field in Cooperstown. That is how Rezz should be remembered.

RIP Ken. cry

Awwww, that is a truly great picture.........

N/O, I know you are a couple years behind Seajaw and myself, but due to my love of sports, it really hits home when a player in any sport that I grew up with passes away. Tony Gwynn, Kirby Puckett, et al...........makes you grounded about life real fast (especially like us who have kids that are fairly young)............

I think it is a fair statement to say that SOMers would not exist if it were not for Rezzdogg (a.k.a., Ken Dunning).

When I first got back into Stratomatic 10 years or so ago, I joined the Village where I met a number of our current and former members: Seajaw, Nitrous Oxide, Nacster, and many others. (I don't want to try to list everyone for fear that I night offend someone by omitting them from the list).

So when Seajaw and I began having discussions about starting this site, as a courtesy, we wanted to let Ken know prior to launching. Ken was very supportive immediately making an announcement to the Villlagers about our site and posting a link. He sent me several e-mails during our formative years making suggestions and offering advice. He was responsive to questions I asked him. Ken wanted to have a vibrant SOM online community and realized that not everyone would like the same flavor of ice cream.

For the first three years or so, I remained an active member of the Village and SOMers,even participating in several of the Village's projects. But when things in my personal life changed (in a positive way) I could no longer afford the time of being active and posting at two sites and focused just on SOMers.

I have not communicated with Ken in some time now, and was completely shocked and saddened when Seajaw told me about Ken's passing. Although I never met him personally, I was glad to know him. He was taken from this world too soon. I am truly appreciative for what he did for us here at SOMers, and will have him in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace.

You can read his obituary here.

The Baseball Village was the very first SOM site that I joined and Rezzdog made me fell welcomed immediately. And by joining the Village I've made friends that I hope will last a lifetime.
His contributions to our hobby will be missed.

RIP Rezzdog!!

I don't post much here but as a fellow gamer who shares Ken's passion for this wonderful hobby, I too am saddened by his passing. I'm 56 years old as well and had terrible health problems over the years, including debilitating arthritis. Fella's, I'll just say this; 56 is too young for "the cornfield". I was fortunate to meet a homeopath 3 years ago who completely changed my life. I weighed 246 at the time and got down to 186, my college weight. I roll around at around 188 - 191 and no longer take pharmaceutical's. I was taking 2 opioids, a muscle relaxer, a script for nerve damage (from similar spinal surgery that David Wright just had) as well as a script for high blood pressure. I don't take any of them any more. There are foods that have anti-inflammatory properties. I'm not about to tell you that it's easy...you need discipline and it's very time consuming as well as expensive to eat healthy. But I want to keep rolling..I have 2 kids and I need to get to work everyday. I wish blessings upon Ken's family and I'm grateful that Ken took the time to give us all this site. Peace brothers.

 Mike,

Thanks for stopping by. I'll reach out to you offline. I merged this with our thread.

The Village and .Net were the two forums I initially became a part of years ago. I only exchanged posts with Rezz on several occasions and therefore did not know him on the level of many others. However, everyone knew his passion for the Strat community and the vast knowledge he had, a direct result of that passion...was without question or measure! His impact on Strat gaming and upon fellow gamers too is, beyond measure!
To his family and close friends, I offer my genuine wishes for peace and comfort!
