Jon "Cajun" Lockwood (1982 - 2014)
« on: Sunday 20 July 2014, 09:53:25 am »
This morning the forum has some terrible news.

Jon Lockwood aka Cajun, known on N-O and Toontastic since their inception has tragically passed away. He was 31 years old.

Jon came up to Newcastle on the very first organised N-O meet several years ago now and I shared a hotel room with him. We had a great laugh and over the years he developed personal friendships with many people both on and offline. His brand of humour on here was unique and often gained him recognition as the forum's funniest poster.

We do not know the cause of his passing at this very moment so please do not speculate, but it was felt that given the number of people that would want to pay tribute to Jon, this thread should be made in the football forum.

RIP Cajun, you will be missed hugely. :(

I'll send flowers tomorrow and then after a week or so I'll send whatever is there to Sir Bobby's Memorial Fund in Jon's name. I asked his mam if she'd rather it went elsewhere but she thinks Sir Bobby's charity is best.

It feels so much more real now it's on here and not just Facebook. :(

RIP Jon mate. I'll miss sharing messages about Websleuths cases, who the f*** will solve everything now?

Beyond gutted, Jon some of life's good guys and I'm honoured to have met him. I guess his arm wrestling crown is for keeps now.

R.I.P Jon mate. It has been a pleasure knowing you.

Cath just posted about this over on TT. Really really awful news. Always seemed like a really nice lad. Jesus Christ, 31.

Feels so very unreal. I never did manage to meet you, and the fact I couldn't sneak in the time to it when I was last in London will haunt me. There's not always a next time. You'll be sorely missed. RIP Jon. A great poster on N-O, and a great person in general.

Unbelievable news. Reading back on his recent posts is really upsetting in this context.

RIP :(

Wow. :( Obviously didn't know him as well as a lot of you on here but was clearly an amazing guy with a heart of gold that will be missed by everyone who knew him.

RIP.

Echo what Dave said....when I read the tragic news on FB this morning, I couldn't comprehend what I'd read....a young guy with a fantastic manner about him, such a superb sense of humour, and knowledgeable too. This forum will have a huge void now that we won't have Cajun's musings to light up the days.

And despite never actually meeting him, I felt destined to, and I knew that we'd get on famously and have a great time, like I have when I've met other forum ledges.  Cajun had no enemies here, and deservedly figured highly in the good polls at the annual awards.

RIP mate, thanks for the entertainment.
RIP gejon/cajun/ Jon Lockwood.

Proud to have made your acquaintance Sir.

Never had the pleasure of meeting the guy, but like many of this forum's long-serving legends, he will be sorely missed.

A great poster and a great guy. RIP Jon, mate.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jon a few times and he was just as funny in real life. I can't believe you're not here anymore, you always gave me advice when I needed help.

I will miss you Jon.
