Our good GasBuddy and one of my few friends in life and our friend, Dennis, 1cheapgasin from IndyGasPrices has left us. He passed away yesterday, March 12th at around 3:30. He fought an ongoing battle with some health issues over the last year or so, finalizing at the point of having blood clots, lung fungus, and then having to battle pneumonia as well.

Dennis, 1cheapgasin, was a REALLY great person to know. He definitely could make you laugh, had a warm and caring heart, was a good person to be around and spend time with. I wish I could have spent more time with him myself. He was also a gentleman and a Christian; one who lived up to the meaning of those words.

He also was a guy with good common sense, and one who realized what was coming up on the order of higher prices for fuel, higher prices for the cost of food, clothing and other goods and services, problems for our people and this nation as a whole, as he and I discussed it in person, on the phone and online. He planned ahead and did that better than many others do. Others would be wise to follow in his footsteps; and he listened to the warnings I gave him and acted upon them. He was better at saving money than others.

He was 65 years old. He is survived by his wife Jane and his daughter and son and by many friends. He will be missed by many here at GasBuddy and elsewhere.

He was active here at GasBuddy for 4 years and 240 days. He was proud to have made #1 on the 30 day rank, and it happened more than once for him as it has for a few of us from time to time. He was also consistent with posting, and he too realized that someone else, maybe a younger person without a job, maybe a single mom, maybe an older person, might just benefit from the prices he himself posted.

If you never met him, you can still see him via the photos on his profile and you can also see him in the video I posted of our first and regrettably only meeting. I had hoped to post more of us and others. Life does not always go according to plan, and he knew that as well as I and others do. But, we get up, pick our things up and get on and move along and keep on going as best we can.

You can see him for yourself here below:

First meeting of 1cheapgasin and yourstruly

Dennis Edwards -- 1cheapgasin from IndyGasPrices

August 23, 1948 to March 12th, 2014

May he rest in peace; and I know that his is and will.
