The Steem community has lost an epic member! Farewell @woflhart!

in steemitboard •  2 months ago  (edited)

It is with great sadness that I learned on Tuesday that one of our Steem community members @wolfhart passed away.

I’m deeply saddened by this news because, in addition to the great human values and positive energy we had in common, @wolfhart was a great supporter of the SteemitBoard project. He sent us so many kind replies each time he received a notification about his progress.

Only a few days ago, he told us of his great joy at having become a dolphin:

You can read his post here

@wolfhart was a very active and supportive member of our community and I was really impressed to see the energy and kindness he deployed to keep in touch with his Steemians friends while he battled cancer and was on a hospital bed.

This picture taken from his very last post says it all!

In memoriam

I got informed of @wolfhart’s death by @brittandjosie and while we shared our sadness, she wrote:

I don’t know if steemitboard has a posthume badge but I would love one for him

Without waiting, the whole @steemitboard team mobilized to realize this magnificent idea.

From now on, the Steem ecosystem will have a special member in addition to the usual redfishes, minnows, dolphins, orcas and whales!

You can see this brand new character on his board.

This is my little gift to @wolfhart and his family. I hope they will appreciate this initiative and will find some comfort in going through these difficult times. Thank you @brittandjosie for this brilliant idea.

As any information in the blockchain, @wolfhart will stay in our minds and in our hearts... forever!

Farewell my friend!

My condolences to @wolfhart's family. I did not know him, but it is a shame to hear of the death of a Steemian and also a shame about his cancer. I know a few people who died from cancer. They always seem to be so full of life and so happy in life despite their illness. I wish all the best to his family and friends.

Although I did not know @wolfhart at all it is still sad to hear of someone in this community I am part of has passed away. I offer my condolences to his family and others who were close to him.

Thanks for your kind words @moz333


Always sad when someone passes. I did not know them, but RIP. Hope they are in a better place. (There a typo in the second paragraph btw - reads: wodlfart instead of Wolfhart - normally would not say anything, but being a memorial and all etc.,) its always sad when you hear of someone passing away. It really brings life into perspective, and how precious it really is. How great it is to be able to engage with life, and read people's post. Sometimes I forget that there is someone behind the blog, and sometimes they are going through some real hard stuff in life.

Thank you @theouterlight. And yes we sometimes forget there is/are people(s) behind posts and avatars.

And what makes Steem really different from other social networks is that there is a will from its users to expand this community experience to real life.
See how many meetups are organized all around the world. Not talking about SteemFest...

PS: Typos have been fixed. Thanks

Aw, that's such a nice tribute. Great work, y'all.

He truly will be missed!
He's in so many communities, and affected so many of us.

As we say, Fair Winds and Following Seas!

For sure, we will all miss him.
Thank you @bluefinstudios.

I didn't know him, but I went over and read his posts upon hearing of the passing. May his soul rest in peace. Part of his legacy - which is here on the Steem Blockchain - will live forever.

He was, and still is, a great source of inspiration for us on Steem.
Thank you @adetorrent

A fine and noble tribute to Wolfhart. I didn't know of him, but read some of his posts from just a short week ago. Obviously a man of courage, love and humor. Those traits are rare these days, and make any person who has them a hero in my book. Well done, sir!

Condolences to friends and family and know that your loved one, even bed ridden and sick, could inspire those who never knew him...a wonderful talent and gift. RIP.

Wonderful words @matthias-green. Thank you.

This was a very unique and fantastic post @steemitboard and it's an excellent idea to create that badge as a memorial for @wolfhart. That is a perfect way to honor him @brittandjosie

Thank you @jamerussell.
As mentioned in the post, it was @brittandjosie's idea. We just made it the best we could.

He would have absolutely loved this badge. It is absolutely great that you guys did this.

Thank you @tryskele. It was obvious for us to do it.

Rest in peace @wolfhart🙏💐

Death is a bitter pirouette of which the dead do not keep memories, but the living ones. Sadness is the heaviest burden you can carry, especially if it is full of a lot of happy memories. More heartfelt condolences to your family and friends. friends

what a lovely way to pay respects. Good job 💜

What a wonderful way to pay tribute to a lost Steemian. This is fantastic. He touched so many lives and influenced many on the platform. Thank you for honoring him this way... 🙌

Condolences to his friends and family.

Even though I didn't know him, I'm deeply emotioned after what you've written and also his post and messages on it. Cancer is a tough fight and not anyone can win the battle but that doesn't make the person less stronger! May he rest in peace...

Hello, @steemitboard.
May the badge there
be clickable with the link on this memorian post?
So any person who will ever find this Steem member on a board
and see this specific badge will have the way to know more.

R.I.P @wolfhart

My deepest condolences to @wolfhart's family.

I didn't know wolfhart very well, but I always made it a point to read his posts during my daily curation efforts, and I can say with full confidence that he was a man who was full of empathy and compassion. His heart was very much in line with his name here on Steem. May his soul rest in peace, and his writings live eternally on our beloved blockchain.

Much love,

I am sadden to hear the loss of our Steemian Brother.
I wish to express my condolences to his family and loved ones.

Rest in peace

Wow, I am very surprised by the initiative. Well done @steemitboard!
Thanks to @brittandjosie for showing so much love, and farewell to @wolfhart, that show his strength and courage many times, may your soul rest in peace.


Thanks to you all... @arcange and the whole crew, as well as @brittandjosie for requesting this immensely touching and heartfelt tribute. I am having trouble typing... as the emotions are still quite fresh to us all I am sure. @wolfhart was indeed a true example of a Steemian... but even more than that, he was a friend, mentor, joker... and serious, when it was time to be...

As I have said numerous times... both of us dealing with life-changing diseases, combined with prior military service, really created a bond. He was but a State away... and due to financial and health issues, I was unable to try and visit him. He wanted me to... this I know...

It wasn't meant to be, but I will continue to spread the love, light, positive engagement, and spirit... that was, indeed, @wolfhart Thank you so much... all of you... he will live on through each of us...
Until then brother...

no word im so sad about him. i wish all the best to his family and friends.

I am very sorry for the death of @wolfhart. I know it is difficult for the family because I lost a daughter because of cancer and it is a pain that I do not wish on anyone. I did not have the opportunity to meet @wolfhart but it's a shame to lose a member of the community. My condolences to the family.

Dear blockchain steemit friend and #steemitboard , I also mourn with everyone on the death of "Wolfhart". His contribution with you, I forget to chain. Forgetting a gentleman, forgot for everyone. Still, thanking everyone, I am expressing the concentration.

My condolences to @wolfhart's family. Big Prayers Sent and Sage Burned for his Safe and Pleasant Journey into the Spirit World.

Steem needs a love emoji we can share. <3 My condolences to everyone who knew @wolfhart.

His legacy must surely live on.
