Rest in peace @adept

in #adept6 years ago

It is with heavy hearts that we inform the community that we have lost one of our own: @adept.

An unceasing entrepreneur, @adept first came to the attention of Steemit when he began selling apparel through Amazon. @craig-grant told @ned; @ned contacted @adept; and the rest is history.

And that’s how thesteemitshop.com was born. Just recently he became a full-time employee and the people he worked with were excited about their future together.

@adept was always cheerful and a pleasure to work or chat with. He was open-minded and eager to be of service to the blockchain world, to which he devoted himself very early on, having discovered Bitcoin in 2011. He followed all of the projects in the space, and is even credited with having created the Litecoin “Ł,” but was most generous with his support of Steem. One need only read his post My List of Steem Related Domains and Project Ideas to get an idea of his passion.

In the following YouTube video, he talks about his various passions in classic @adept-style:

He was a critical thinker who formed his own beliefs and lived life his way. We all loved working with him and are missing him dearly. We include two more videos of his below, if you would like to get a better sense of the person he was.

They say, “Just start creating content and that’s all you have to do”:

Have you ever traveled through time like this?

@adept you will be missed.

I will love you forever@adept. You are the most beautiful cosmic being I have ever met in my entire life. I hold for you an eternal gratitude for all you have taught me. You are a blessing to my existence. My soul.

I am so sorry for your loss. I can not imagine. May you have peace.

Luke, my dear friend. It has been an honour having experienced friendship and memorable times with you. You have impacted my life more than once, and gave new perspective. It sure has been a blessing to know you. I got to watch you become a Legend. Your words of wisdom and intellect, your ego-less personality, and your dance moves at the raves.
Love you brother. Never forgotten, Always missedPhoto_on_2-1-18_at_3.23_PM.jpg
He took this picture soon before his passing on. He was on a rooftop in the Bronx in NYC.


This is a memory of a good time with him and his Love, @Seer. Myself in the middle. He could definitely dance. He would always be up at the front of the stage, and just flow with the beat. He was an inspiring friend.

I was slightly surprised to know that i'd missed an open mic he did because i was outside smoking and didn't expect that to happen. I shouldn't have been. He was so many different things. Miss him. Miss you too.

Surprised to know that our great hero is no more.
Though you're gone, your legacies live on@adapt.
Wishing your loved ones and indeed the steemit community "solace and fortitude"

From my observations, steemitblog tends to voluntarily decline payment for his posts.
Rare gem. Kudos@steemitblog

HALLO BUDDY STEEMIANS !! (Senior who already succeeded in steemit and also beginner steemit candidate for success).

So many of my introductions, greetings to all steemians friends and wish us all to be successful.
Thank you..!

This is completely irrelevant AND DISRESPECTFUL to this post and should be removed immediately.

I completely agree. Instead of showing respect and heart, some users just seek attention. Shame young-cs

I do not know anything, I just introduce myself to be known by senior seniors

Do you do the same at funerals? Go up and try to introduce yourself to get in with the higher-ups? Pretty sure you'd get punched in the face for that in real life.

You are arrogant with the little guy in steemit. wait till your account is hacked
I'm sorry

Threats now? Hm. FLAG.

well what should i do so that my mistake is forgiven, I want to apologize🙏

Its almost unbelievable (and yet here it is) that you would come to a post about someone we care abut who has died and try and shill your crap. Your rep here on Steemit will be destroyed as SHOULD BE .

It's always sad news to hear of someone passing, but this was one guy that seemed to want to do more for Steemit than he wanted to get out.

My thoughts are with his friends and family at this sad time.

Absolutely. No question about that.

Is anything needed for his family? Is there anything we, the Steemit community can do to help his wife and family?

We gonna miss you so much @adept !!!! Great friend father husband and entrepreneur!!!!! I'm glad I got to meet you in real life. You will always be remembered big homie!!!!!

I want to use up all my voting power here, but luke would say that was funny but stupid, so i won't. I miss "adept" probably as much as you do, maybe not as deeply as some people who've known him for life or many years, but a LOT. I bothered him SO MUCH. But i still managed to get a laugh from him like half the time i said something ridiculous. He's the reason i'm here and him and i would have been friends anyways. I do wish we'd have had the time necessary to actually develop some top level ventures, but life and death happen, and i'm glad as fuck to have known him for even only as long as i did. We never finished one thing "together" on any level, but we discussed some great shit. He'll always be here, in our lives and in association with the steem blockchain and it's community too, more than they know. Unless we tell them now, during, and afterwards. We come to y'all with the force of luke included. Absolutely. Love you too man. Glad as hell to know you and the crew.

Rip

It feels like it was just yesterday when I spoke to him in your youtube live chat ... This is horrible news. I hope his fam is ok ... damn ...

Yeah it was I remember the day you were all in my livestream....he always popped in my streams....good dude man.... even better man in person.

The last thing i wrote to him was "alrighty then", not too profound at all, maybe the least profound thing i've ever said, but before that, wonderful stuff, and a friend who was both funny and constantly learning.

I only met him for the first time in person just a couple of weeks ago. We wound up walking around my neighborhood and just chatting about this and that (blockchain obviously). My girlfriend was waiting for me at home for dinner, so I had to cut the conversation short. On the one hand I'm grateful I got to spend those couple of hours with him. On other hand, I can't help wishing I'd just stayed out a bit longer.

Loading...

I'm sure they appreciate all of the condolences here.

I became very sad after watching this news of losing @adept.There are many things which should be learnt from him.He was very hard working and good thinkable person.

will be ok

Oh, how 😔 sad, I have only started following his blog recently, such a cool and nice guy, so sorry to hear this now, you will be greatly missed @adept 😢 😢

Luke, you were one of the nicest and most open minded people i've known, not just to ideas but to all different types of people. But you still owe me that one 100% vote for that time i drove your ass in the freezing and blowing snow, to the middle of freakin' nowhere. It was so late and as we drove, between asking you strange questions, i was calculating the price of SBD's, and how much i was making as your frienduber. [i can get cranky and selfish at 5 in the morning] :) I did want a fat vote for that, but in reality, your friendship was worth an unlimited number of votes, and no individual gave me more support on steemit itself, than you bro. Without you, i wouldn't be here. I wouldn't know these people. And for all the things that i'd STILL be complaining to you about most every day, i like them, and have made some new very good friends because of you. To me "Adept Token" is what i think of when i imagine you smoking a little bit of weed after blockchain meetups, and engaging in great creative conversations. I'm sorry for the times when i was actually annoying, which were pretty far and few between for a being like you. I'm happy we knew one another. Two weeks later and finally i let it hit me and got to cry. I expected to know you forever. I mean, i do, but man, i'm one of those who really wishes the universe would have given us more time, to spend down to earth with you. We were "supposed to" grow old, helping each other out with ever more impossible projects, and smoking gods own pot, on the so called "fee yacht". Love you man.

Sorry for the loss, i wish i had the chance to meet him. I also am in buffalo area, and would like to know more about meetups.

Absolutely. Usually Thursdays at Ashkers on elmowood, 6:00pm. Look up buffalo blockchain meetup.

Awesome @alxgraham. Got me crying again lol. Man our boy @Adept is really gone bro... I miss him so much! There was so much to learn from him yet. I alway's looked up to him.

I wish I would have known him earlier, after going through the post / videos. How did this tragedy happen ?

He would have been happy to know his picture made it on the Joe Rogan experience today because he was trending.

Really!? Wow I alway's listen to JRE. I gotta look this up now. @adept was a close friend of mine. He introduced me to everything crypto last year. He even introduced me to Discord. He gave me one of his laptops as well. I have something of his that will always remind me of the blessing he is in my life.

They talked about Steemit and showed the front page on the video feed for his latest show with Tony Henchcliff

That is unique. Either some good timing or @Adept pulling strings in the Aether lol

Rest in peace.

I had mention we could still go forward with a SMT dedicated to Adept ( aptly named Adept). Just something to think about as this news really came out of nowhere.

This might seem crazy, but i suggest a steemit page opened for people like him, to promote his legacy and that of others like him, in a way to immortalize him and others like him

@seer My Condolences to You....Those we Love don't go away, they walk beside us everyday..unseen, unheard, but always near, stilled loved, stilled missed and very Dear. I Pray that God holds you near during this difficult time. May he bless you with Love, Reassurance, Peace and Comfort. I had the pleasure of being blessed with your Presence meeting and welcoming this Awesome Soul @adept into our home where he greeted my son and daughter with love. Luke know that your loved and always be missed May You Rest Peacefully.
