Basement Shaman has passed away

Hello All,

With much sadness, I'm writing to anyone who followed my father Joseph to say that he passed away early morning today, Sept 27th. His battle with Pancreatic Cancer was a long one and he fought it better than most. Thank you to all who checked up on him, followed his progress, and his food posts. He appreciated the support and it gave him sense of purpose in life again. He is now at peace and is no longer suffering, which is all we can ask for.

Thank you all again for being part of his life,
Joe's Daughter, Sarah.


  • I really enjoyed reading all Joe's posts.  He will be missed.  Sarah,  please accept my condolences.
  • Condolences and appreciation for all the valuable information your father generously shared with our community
  • damn it. He was one of the real freaks. One of the few people that didn't seem to come from a factory where they make other people like him. A hand crafted freak. I don't know if you know this but that's one of the highest compliments I can give. There will be no replaces made on this one. 
  • I'm sorry to hear that. My condolences to you, Sarah, and your family in this time of grief.
  •   My condolences to his family.  Josephs' wide knowledge of snuff really helped me when I first started. He will be missed.

    He wrote a lot of interesting and enlightening things. This Forum will miss his contribution.
  • =( condolences 
  • Joseph will be missed on here as well as facebook. He never failed to make me smile at his knowledge or his great sense of humour.
  • His posts here were enlightening and often made me smile. He will be much missed. As @bob says above - he was a one off.
  • My condolences as well.
    He will be missed.
  • RIP.
  • RIP Joseph

    Well...this sucks. In one way its good to hear he got peace and is no longer suffering..on the other hand he will be missed, and i dont think anyone will be capable of taking his place. May he rest in peace.

  • This is very sad news, his wealth of knowledge was unparalleled. My condolences to you and the rest of your family

  • I'm really sorry to hear that but glad he is now at peace.
    My sincere condolences to all friends and family.

  • RIP Joe. Great man with a generous spirit. My condolences to his family.

    RIP Shamen, you will be remembered.
  • All thoughts and prayers to you and yours in a difficult time.
  • Like all of us, I am very sad to hear this news. I had several private conversations with him over the years through Snuffhouse and I quickly learned what a valuable resource he was for all of us. My best wishes to Sarah and Joseph's family. All of us are so sorry for their loss and our loss as well.
  • A sad loss to his family and friends, not forgetting the community here.
    I will most definitely miss his humour and knowledge.
    Sleep Peacefully.

  • RIP to a great man. I'd like to think he's looking down on us now with a great big pile of Dholakia White on the back of his hand. Sincere condolences to his family.
  • RIP

    I don't post here often but read a lot and always remember BS's informative posts. Condolences for your loss and our loss at snuffhouse.
  • My condolences. I've been meaning to post, but haven't known what to say. I lost someone in July, and can empathize. Cancer sucks!
  • Joseph and I exchanged several messages when I was starting out on snuff, and not once did he grow tired of my questions. He always answered them with utmost zeal and love and he even advised on some other facets of life in his little wise sentences. I knew this was coming but knowing doesn't really prepare you anytime. I know everyone is going to miss having him around.
  • I know for some reason I assumed he'd beat it.
  • I'm very sad to see you go, Shaman. You will be missed.
