I just found out that hubber Wesman Todd Shaw passed away last year. RIP Todd. Many were fans of Todd's writings. Loved guitars and wrote some great hubs on music. Condolences to his family and friends.
I am so sorry to hear this. I really liked him.
Oh, my. This is shocking news! So sorry to hear. I hope he had a peaceful journey.
Sad news to hear. I noticed that he was very active throughout the summer and then is abruptly stopped. 46 is too young to die. RIP Wesman. At least there are few guitar gods up there to jam with.
I don't know this person but his profile is very nice
RIP... May God gives patience to his family and bless him with the best place in Paradise
Condolences to his family
Shocking. Was not expecting that at all. Very sorry to hear this.
Passed away last August, 2020. Farewell guitar man, heavenly riffs for you.
He wrote a great article that debunk the eating of meat by vegetarians. RIP great writer.
OMG! What a shocking news. He may Rest In Peace.
Damn. He was such a unique soul. His heart was kind and good. He was real. Always. He reached out to me once, in such a genuine manner, with regard to some postings I made... a time ago. I never forgot it.
I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing. May he rest softly and go soon to the meet his Maker. I will always remember you, Wesman Todd Shaw. My very deepest condolences to his family.
Man I've been so busy working on a lot of things from family drama, working on my new account, and such that I didn't even notice this thread until recently. Man that's tragic. Well he'll definitely be missed. Condolences to him and his family and thanks for telling us.
Oh my goodness. What a shame. One of the stalwarts on HP. So sorry to hear this.
Aww that sucks. He seemed like a cool dude, he would occasionally comment on my stuff (and vice versa) cuz we were both music nerds. R.I.P. man.
Wow! Such a great and talented guy! I wish his family condolences. Wishing him even more musical adventures!
Wow, that's shocking and saddening! People come and go here, so I just assumed he was busy with other things...
Here's the obit...

Oh, no. Whenever I received notice of a comment from Wesman Todd, I knew I was in for a treat. He was always so clever, funny, insightful and absolutely charming. What a sad loss for our writing community.
This is truly a shock; I was just thinking last week I hadn't seen him commenting in a while. He would often pop in with a comment when I posted a new hub. He was so young, I wonder what happened.
I am saddened to learn this. My condolences to his entire family, and may he rest in peace.
My condolences to his friends and family. He will be missed.
Very sad to hear. He was a good hubber. Thanks for letting us know.
Shocking. So sorry to hear this; so many young people gone well before their time over this last year. Heartbreaking.
I remember interacting with him a few times in the forum. Such a kind fellow and so young. Very tragic. He will be missed.
I just found this on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/WesmanToddShaw/
He seems to be a joyful, lively and peaceful person through his cover and profile Photo.
May his soul rest in peace
"A page for friends of Todd who want to know wtf happened to him or send him messages." Indeed.
Edit: I did note that in one of his hubs, he mentioned he had been "locked up" for attempted suicide.
I went into the FB page but didn't see anything about how he died. Did you?
I did not find a cause of death. Nothing was in the obit either. I don't remember him mentioning any particular health issues in his hubs or discussions.
No, and those on that FB page seem to want to know too. "WTF happened to him" is part of the page's description.
Well God bless him, and may he rest peacefully
A very handsome young man
Hope he's having fun playing guitar ....
People seem reluctant to post a cause of death on social media. As a result, lots of times we just never know what happened unless we have personal contact with the family.
Unless someone has fought a long struggle, and even then, no one tells what the cause of death was. In "long battle" we assume cancer. When nothing is there, we assume something sudden. It makes me sad in any case. He was a young man, smart, cynical.
His mother's comments struck me as being stuck in time. i.e. He was brilliant, but it never showed in his high school grades. And there it sits, as though everyone is stuck in time there, in 1992. He was a 46 year old man, what of the next 18 years of life.
Years ago, my mother came across the obituary of a former boyfriend from high school. He was 41 when he passed. It said he was preceded in death by his wife a year earlier, and they left 2 children behind. His parents still survived. I thought, "What do two people at 40/41 have to die over. Both of them." I still wonder to this day. This predated the opioid epidemic.
I have similar thoughts over one of my university friends in England. He was an archaeologist, so had a large footprint on internet (papers published, digs, community projects etc.), but then it all just stopped suddenly and his email no longer works. My presumption is that he died of something. But it could have been a nervous breakdown or some huge life-changing decision. I may never know. I guess I could find out if he died if I used Ancestry.
People do die when they are only 40, my own father died at that age of cancer, but it does make people wonder...
Maybe one day Ancestry dot com (or an equivalent) will list cause of death...
Thank you so much for posting this about a fellow writer. Such a talented person. I just feel very blessed to have been a part of the same community as him. Maybe once or twice I've interacted with him in the forums or simply read his works, but I don't know him personally. RIP, author.
This makes me very sad. We exchanged a few e-mails as he supported my writing on some of the political forums. What a shame. He seemed like a really great guy.

I am sure most of you knew Mary Hyatt. Sadly she passed on today, and I for one will really miss her. I loved her hubs, and her humor too. She had a dog named Baby, and there were many hubs telling us about her, and her funny stories too. Her daughter Holly asked me to let you know. So here's to a...

She was 90 and in poor health. I won't be going to her funeral, and she knew and understood this, and why. We made our peace and said our goodbyes last year when I went to see her after she had broken her leg. I'm so alone now. I have no one left in the world who loves me...
