Gainesy RIP
I'm sorry to say that Mike Gaines, aka Gainsey, well known on this and other forums passed away on Thursday after an 18 month battle against cancer. I will post details of his funeral once his wife Maureen passes them to me. A sad loss of a good mate.

I never met or communicated privately with Gainsey but this is sad news. I enjoyed his posts.

Jet Blast will be poorer for his absence.

A sad, sad loss.

His humour on JB and his technical knowledge displayed elsewhere will be sorely missed.

IB4138 16th Apr 2011 19:15


Very sad.

He will most certainly be missed, not only here.

Will be greatly missed by all.

It comes to us all in the end, and for some it can be a welcome relief.

Just saying.

The afterlife is a term which even non-believers can comprehend - it is how the departed are remembered by those who remain.

The more we think about (Gainsey) the stronger will be the afterlife.

'Missing' someone is just the beginning of the process . . .

A sad sad loss indeed, I missed his postings over the last few months and thoroughly enjoyed his previous most knowlegeable and informative postings.

As SRT says.. Hamba gahle

Gainsey was one of life's characters. It was always a pleasure to read his posts whether they be humorous or informative. Although we knew he was gravely ill, it is still very sad news. RIP old chum.

Thoughts with his wife and family.

BombayDuck 16th Apr 2011 19:51

Bloody Heck.


mustpost 16th Apr 2011 19:53

Condolences from north Britain, like others I found his contributions thought provoking and always sensible..

cleo 16th Apr 2011 19:56

Sorry to hear this sad news. We are the poorer for his passing but richer in having 'known' him.

timmcat 16th Apr 2011 19:59

That's awful news. I had no idea he was ill but I guess I lost touch a little in recent years.

A great contributor here and elsewhere.

Sit tibi terra levis, Gainesy :(

OFSO 16th Apr 2011 20:12

Condolences from the OFSOs, please pass ours (and everyone elses) to his wife and family.
