This post is two fold. First I just want to let people that have heard of Capt Fiero's passing, that I am alive and well and living in Canada. So please don't freak out about me. I knew Curry from chatting online, when I first made the transition from Car guy to Car guy / computer geek, I went online and used my real life nickname of Capt Fiero. He popped up and said HEY THATS MY NICKNAME. So I changed mine to Capt Fiero of BC, and even had an email captfieroofbc@shaw.ca. We chatted on the old Fiero.org mailing list while it was run by Peter Zurich. This was back around late 97 early 98. We chatted a few times more over the years and when I decided I wanted to register captfiero.com I contacted him and asked his permission. He kinda laughed and thanked me for asking permission, and he said he had no desire to own the name or create a site, so I got it rolling. He did not mind that I used Capt Fiero on PFF as he was not fond of forums.

However if you did know Curry Obenshain, also known to many as Captain Fiero, passed away on Jan 30, 2011, from cancer that attacked his lungs, brain, spine and throat. He fought the cancer for 7 months, until the cancer won the battle.
Note below is from Currys Sister.

Some of you may already have heard by word of mouth, but I wanted to make contact with everyone on Curry's email address list.

Curry Obenshain, also known to many as Captain Fiero, passed away on Jan 30, 2011, from a very aggressive cancer that attacked his lungs, brain, spine and throat. He had been diagnosed on June 21, 2010, and fought the cancer for 7 months, until the cancer won the battle. He will truly be missed!
