My turn to update this thread (Unfortunately). Ethan Allen (yourfriendethan) passed away on July 27th. His wife said he was working under his Fiero and it somehow ended up falling and crushing him underneath. She did not discover him for a bit but the coroner said it wouldn't have mattered.

I had just met Ethan at the meet-n-greet we had on July 17th. He was a good guy and I was looking forward hanging with him at other events.

That's sad. I was glancing at his Indiana thread and he was so happy to meet up with you guys a couple weeks ago and also looked forward to future events. My condolences to his family

Oh man, that's awful. I had posted a few times in the one thread he had an opportunity to start... Finally got a Fiero!

We had shared a laugh about mixing up the terminology for "front" and "rear" exhaust manifolds. Ethan seemed like a good guy. What a crying shame.

My most sincere condolences to Ethan's friends and family.

That's terrible. Out of respect & for education purpose, is there any more details on how his Fiero was jacked up?

Even though, there is a picture in those manual books on how to set it up, it's still confusing for a lot of people, including me.

And I see people still setting it up wrong from pics or on youtube all the time.

To honor his memory, we should have a thread to educate all of us on safety & how to set up jack stands properly.

I see there are few threads, but it weren't very clear. So, I'll go ahead & set up a thread in his honor & memory.

That would be a great idea.

I've been a member of this forum almost since day one. Twenty-two years. This has got to be one of, if not the saddest event I've ever seen posted here.

This is absolutely terrible news... Safety is paramount when working on cars, and jacking up a Fiero is very unique. May he rest in peace.

Wow. So heartbreaking. I had recently seen a few of his posts on FB with the car and how elated he was to have it. If you find out of specific needs his family has that the community can assist with, please let us know.

Here's the obit for him: https://www.simplicity-fune...aries/Ethan-Allen-2/ I did see a note about contributing to an education fund for his kids but didn't look into that too much.

I don't have any particulars on how he had the car supported. He was talking about needing/wanting to build a garage to work in later this year or next so I suspect he was working in his driveway?

His wife said she will not be keeping the car so once she gets past the initial grief, she's going to reach out to me to put it up for sale in the Mall.

Very sad indeed, that obituary brought tears to my eyes. The idea to get a how too lift and secure a Fiero safely would be great. These cars are seeing a uptick in popularity and would help towards the safety of all the newcomers.

I was saddened and shocked to learn that Ethan, a 38 yr old forum member and Fiero owner was killed in a tragic accident. While I did not know Ethan anyone with a screen name yourfriendethan, speaks loudly for the type of person he was. Reading his obituary; this was undoubtedly a good and decent family man that we lost. Rest in peace with Christ from a friend you never met.

Wayne was only on here briefly, but he was passionate about cars, as most of us are.

https://www.maxsass.com/obi...300456#/obituaryInfo

He posted under two names, the last being Karrnutt, and he was the man I trusted with the future care my Mera, something I would only do with only a very few people. Like the members here.
While he and I have a different style, he was truly a good man.

I am so incredibly sad to hear that Wayne has passed. Last time I received an update, I knew he was nearing the end. I know that Mera meant the world to him so I'm glad to hear you were able to make it happen.

Melanie Nadeau called me last week but asked me to hold off until she contacted me again. Steve Nadeau, aka 84fiero123 passed on August 24. He had suffered several strokes after I had visited with them on June 27. He had requested to go to hospice and passed 5 days later. Melanie was with him at the time.

Very sorry to hear this. Steve was quite a character. I interacted with him innumerous times over the years in O/T.

My condolences to Steve's friends and family.

Wow... Very sad to hear. I've met Steve once back in 2007 in Pittsburgh. One of the nicer guys I've met. I was so impressed he drove all the way to Pittsburgh in his camper just to meet me. Rest in peace, Steve...

Sad news,
I enjoyed our interactions over the years.
Helped him out with a hard drive recovery once, he offered me a puppy as payment. (should have taken him up on that...)
R.I.P, buddy.

I am sorry to hear this. Never met him in person but argued with him many time on PFF. I would definitely have sat down with him over a great dinner, on me. Just because we disagree does not mean we can't get along.
My condolences to his family and closest friends.
