Re: Anyone know what happened to Zenspearo aka Joe Gnuyen

I will try to get the straight from his brother whom I still talk with.
Pretty sure his ailment took him a while back though. (Type of cancer, leukemia-like)
I do miss him, he was funny, and a brilliant man. He made the MLPA fight not only doable and a reality for us, hell he helped make the battle half fun! We would have been so screwed as divers had it not been for the two Joes....Nguyen, and Farlo. Eternal gratitude....

I have wondered the same thing for a long time. I would love to know.

I know. Met him on the water a couple of times in different boats. Real nice guy. Hope he is OK.

Re: Anyone know what happened to Zenspearo aka Joe Gnuyen

I really miss him too, although we have never met face-to-face. But we talked at length via p.m. and email. Truly good guys of his caliber are rare. I, too, have been wondering how he's doing, I hope he's all right.

Re: Anyone know what happened to Zenspearo aka Joe Gnuyen

We used to have contact with Joe in the earlier days of Florida Freedivers. Always pleasant, full of humour and a great customer.
Cherryl and I both miss him.

Be safe out there.

Mike.

Re: Anyone know what happened to Zenspearo aka Joe Gnuyen

I put out some feelers, and got some information, and I am trying to contact him. Hopefully, he will get in touch with me.
Seems he is still with us, hoping he will make a connection back.

I will keep you updated should anything transpire.

Re: Anyone know what happened to Zenspearo aka Joe Gnuyen

Joe is a wonderful person. He is the moderator who wrote many of the Sticky Guidances at the top of this California forum. Joe visited Florida and I took him on my boat diving. Great fellow. Tony
