Sad news

I have only just picked up the news that Jeff Hudelson (who was well-known by his tag, Bluebear Jeff, and for his excellent blogs, including Saxe-Bearstein) died on 2nd October after a long battle against cancer.


My condolences – and those of all wargamers who knew Jeff personally or via the Internet – go to his family. He will be sorely missed. May he rest in peace.

  1. Very sad news, indeed. While Jeff and I never met in person, through our correspondence over the last four years, I counted Jeff as a friend.

      I think that there are a lot of us in the same boat, and 'knew' Jeff from his blogs and the comments he made on our blogs.

      He will be sorely missed.

      All the best,

      Bob

      I will miss seeing the tag 'Bluebear Jeff' on a comment. I always enjoyed reading them.

      All the best,

      In Freemasonry we always say that a man should strive to live respected and die regretted. I think that Jeff achieved that.

      All the best,

      Jeff will be missed by a lot of wargamers, but one hopes that his blog will continue to be available so that we can re-visit it in the future.

      All the best,

      Bob
