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.

This is just in case anyone wants to go to his page and post a note to him or his family if they don't know how to get there without going through the buddy list:

I miss the old boy. Seems like it was almost yesterday we were talking about things.

God bless and rest you Dennis.

Dennis, I hope you like the avatar that was designed by JaniBop.

I only knew you for a short time, but you were such a nice buddy. I hope that you're organizing a GB chapter up there....

I am going to miss your presence; but I understand that you are in a far better place. My sincere condolences go out to your family.

Rest in Peace.

You're all good folks for posting in remembrance of him. I need to get to the others myself. I haven't had the time to get on as much as I'd like, but I'm just gonna have to make a point of it.

Everyone have a great weekend and week and life ahead.

May the sun always shine on your windowpane; May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain; May the hand of a friend always be near you; May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

Rest In Peace Dennis.

Dennis, we had a great GB friendship and I will miss you a lot. When you told me you were sick, I didn't realize how bad it really was. You are with The Lord in Heaven now and I will be meeting you again when it is my time to cross over. Until then, goodbye my dear friend and may The Lord comfort your family and friends.

At a time like this words just are not enough. I never met Dennis but we were friends on Gas Buddy. As we age we naturally develop some ailments but I was not aware of any Dennis was fighting. My sincere condolences to your family, at this time I never know what to say but while we may not know it at the time this may be a blessing. Both my parents passed away very suddenly it was hard to recover from each time but over time we realized how much more pain we would have had if they suffered for a long time before passing. Again our sincere condolences and a reminder to remember and cherish the good memories, they really do help.
