It is my sad duty to announce that Richard Moxham, known here as mocko, has passed away on March 24. He was 68.

His memory will live on, whenever we play Morelli or NECNON. From now on, we will have to check careless word use ourselves.

I don't know what to say. I hope his loved ones can cope with their loss. For our community it's an enormous loss too. For me and I presume for many if not all of us it comes totally unexpected. He will be missed dearly.

Yes, this is quite the tragic surprise. He had a distinctive way with words, to be sure, which I will greatly miss. I echo Christian's well wishes for his loved ones.

I'm dumbfounded. My condolences to his family. Richard was an inteligent, opinionated gentleman and he'll be sorely missed in our small, close-knitted community. RIP.

Edit: I contacted Octavian to see if we could honor him in any way.

Wow. How did you find out?

We have been bouncing emails, discussing board games in general and Morelli in particular. His wife saw those emails and contacted me.

Colette mentioned that Richard died very suddenly. We have been in the midst of some Morelli games, with Richard playing several turns on March 23.

Very tragic. I'm primarily a lurker in this forum but I very much enjoyed reading his posts, always thought provoking.

Wow, that's an unexpected shock. Thanks for posting the sad news.

Certainly it won't be the same here without him. I'd been aware of not seeing comments from him recently, but I never imagined this was the reason.

Knowing him only here in the Abstract forum, I had no idea of his age, nor that he was married. Condolences to his loved ones, and thanks to Richard for Morelli and lots of interesting discussions.

I'll join the chorus in lamenting Mocko. We exchanged a few emails when I discovered Morelli and he was, as he demonstrated here, at the same time thought-provoking and kind. I haven't had the occasion to play nec/non yet, save for a few games against AiAi, but I enjoy Morelli a lot.

Condolences to Colette and to his loved ones.

Sorry to hear. I look forward to playing NECNON and am grateful to Mr. Moxham for that. To find something worthwhile and follow it in life, is a life well made. My best to Mr. Moxham's family.

I didn't know Mr. Moxham, but I did interact with him through his game on occasion. I was always impressed how he would reach out to players of Morelli and to commentary and impressions.

RIP.

This is quite a blow. He was one-of-a-kind, and added much to our community with his games and distinctive writing.

A memorial has already been set up at mocko's user page by Octavian. Also, you notice a change in his avatar.

Very sad news. His contributions here were always very thoughtful, satirical, and funny. There is certainly nobody else quite like him. Condolences to those close to him.

I only had one extended exchange with him on the forums, but it was one of the most thoughtful and interesting I've enjoyed here. I can't pretend to have known him, but I will miss him.
