Sad news but at least he is not suffering anymore. Prayers for his family and all who loved him. I’m not going to pray for him because he is looking down upon all of us and praying for us. His prayers are much more powerful than ours at this point in time.

There are a handful of posters on FR that I place into the category of Mega-FReeper.

Tonkin was one.

RIP, FRiend.

Oh gosh no. Sure loved Tonkin. He was always really good to me going back years.

It sure is sad when we lose someone from FR, particularly people that I had a kinship with. I wish I had spent more time with them and knew them better. Just rotten news.

Tonkin was one of the very best of the old timers. Blesses and best wishes to his family.

Eternal Father


Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who biddest the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy Word,
Who walked on the foaming deep,
And calm amidst its rage didst sleep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood
Upon the chaos dark and rude,
And bid its angry tumult cease,
And give, for wild confusion, peace;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Trinity of love and power!
Our family shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect us wheresoever we go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.

Jhn 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Rest now Tonk you are in the arms of the Lord.

MoJo,

Thank you for accepting this sad duty and giving us the privilege of paying respects to someone who inspired many, if not all, of us. 68-69TonkinGulfYachtClub will certainly be missed by those of us who were held up by his strength when ours was failing. I will certainly miss him.
