    I am very much saddened to read this post. I have been chit chatting for over a decade with Joseph/Shaman. He will be sorely missed. Even his avatar not being here will leave a gap that can't be filled.

    My sincere condolences Sarah, and thank you for letting us know.

  • So SAD : 
    We were Pen Pals for a long time ! 
    I will miss him Rest in peace my friend !

    Kurt :
  • My condolences to his family. I always enjoyed his insightful comments and wry sense of humor. He will be missed here by all who enjoyed his presence.
  • while i didn't know him personally, i learned early on to pay special attention to his posts. his wit, his sense of humor and his vast knowledge of all things tobacco will be missed. 
    i give my condolences to his family and friends
    rest in peace shaman!
  • My condolences to Shaman's family and friends. I must have read hundreds of his highly insightful (and often very funny) posts on many subjects throughout the years. I'm very sad to hear of his passing.
  • I've been away from this forum for a while, but I was an active member of a Facebook group that Joseph frequented. He and I spoke many times and I was thoroughly impressed by how passionate and knowledgeable he was about all sorts of tobacco-related topics and issues.

    RIP Joseph

    I was building an order today and struggling with wether I should order some SWS Ansons Imperiale. If you were to look this snuff up you will find Joe's words as follow "yep good snuff, this will spoil yourself"' the neat thing I had just asked my wife should I order this, and Joe was ready with the answer. Sarah your Dad will be missed by many and I am sadden by his passing. Please accept my condolences to you and the rest of Joes family and friends.
  • Condolences. I joined the board today and was reading some of his posts with pleasure. I saw this thread whilst finding my way around and feel genuinely sad.
  • So sorry to hear this.  I've been away from this forum for a year or so, and he was one of the members whose posts I valued most.  As others have commented, informative, funny, and all around nice person.  My condolences to his family and to those who knew him better.
  • RIP Shaman. I hope you're in the big snuff Mill in the sky.
  • I also enjoyed Joe's post and we exchanged private messages at times,

    Sharp character with a good amount of quality humor. I was out of snuff community last 3 years and i just read that. Chef Daniel and Basement Shaman was pillars to Snuffhouse without a doubt. I came back after long period of break and something is missing here......

    I will miss the Shaman. He was a great resource for Snuffhouse members.
  • Basement and Chef Daniel were stalwart members, senior advisers, mentors to me, and I am sure they were to others. I did trades with them, bought Chef's snuffs when he said they were ready to be tried. They were men of a certain age, as am I. They will always be fondly remembered and missed by many of us.

    Just popped in after a few years and first thing I did was look to see if Joseph was still around. He and Chef Daniel were virtual friends and I am sorry they are gone. I doubt his daughter is reading this post but if she is I offer her my condolences as other here have done.
