My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Although I never had the opportunity to meet him, I always enjoyed his posts (especially on the Smack Board) and share his hatred of all things orange and blue. He will be missed.

My God! This is awful. You'll always be in our hearts, friend. You'll be sorely missed.
Wow, just wow. I'm at a loss for words, this is just heart-breaking. All our thoughts and prayers to his wife and children.
I only met you briefly at the spring game year before last. I wish I'd had a chance to know you better.
RIP Semper Fi

Sad. He had the look of a hardass but the times I talked to him at tailgates he was very friendly and also a funny guy.

I'm terribly saddened by this news. Prayers for his family and friends. I'll miss seeing you at the tailgates friend. RIP.

For everyone that had the privilege to know both Semper Fi and Larry, consider yourselves lucky, please cherish those moments. Don't hesitate to tell stories of both of them.
Being somewhat of an outsider compared to most in the LR, I still feel a connection to all of you on here, (even if the majority my posts don't truly convey it).
We are ALL Noles fans first, and petty differences aside, we are a loose knit family.
I for one, promise to get louder and rowdier in our first game against UM in honor of 2 FSU fans that won't be with us in person, but most definitely in spirit.

Aww jeez he was the first person to befriend me on this board, and give me the confidence to go to the Smack board. I do not know what to say.
RIP Semp, Thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Dad gummit! RIP Semper Fi. My condolences to his family and friends. I always enjoyed his posts on here. As someone else said, he interjected a little levity with his posts. You will be missed. Semper Fi.

Sad day for Seminole Nation. Semper touched many lives and will be missed by many.Prayers out to him and his family. Rest In Peace.
Live A Life That Matters Ready or not, someday it will all come to an end. There will be no more sunrises, no minutes, hours, or days. All the things you collected, whether treasured or forgotten, will pass to someone else. Your wealth, fame, and temporal power will shrivel to irrelevance. It will not matter what you owned or what you were owed. Your grudges, resentments, frustrations, and jealousies will finally disappear. So, too, your hopes, ambitions, plans, and to-do lists will expire. The wins and losses that once seemed so important will fade away. It won't matter where you came from, or on what side of the tracks you lived, at the end. It won't matter whether you were beautiful or brilliant Even your gender and skin color will be irrelevant. So what will matter? How will the value of your days be measured? What will matter is not what you bought, but what you built; not what you got, but what you gave. What will matter is not your success, but your significance. What will matter is not what you learned, but what you taught. What will matter is every act of integrity, compassion, courage or sacrifice that enriched, empowered or encouraged others to emulate your example. What will matter is not your competence, but your character. What will matter is not how many people you knew, but how many will feel a lasting loss when you're gone. What will matter is not your memories, but the memories that live in those who loved you. What will matter is how long you will be remembered, by whom and for what. Living a life that matters doesn't happen by accident. It's not a matter of circumstance but of choice. Choose to live a life that matters
Did you know that when you give to others in need, the Bible says it’s like giving directly to God Himself? When you step out and bless other people, you are honoring and blessing the Lord. The scripture tells us to give our best, to give generously. In other words, stretch yourself. Go out of your way. I encourage you today, look for ways to give generously and meet the needs of others. Remember, people have many different types of needs. There may be someone who needs some encouragement. Give generously when you give that encouragement. There may be someone in your life who just needs a friend. They need some quality time. Give generously of your time and pour into that person. As you give generously to others, God will multiply the seeds you’ve sown, and you’ll live in blessing all the days of your life. There are people who God brings into our lives that hold the key to our promotion. They hold the key to us reaching our full potential. But these people are not here to help us or to give us breaks or open new doors; these are people that God places in our path so we can help them, and show them favor. They are divinely connected to our destiny. We won’t go higher until we help them go higher. You have to step out and sow a seed into those people. The higher they rise, the higher you will rise. If you will help others fulfill their dreams God will help you fulfill your dreams. Make the effort to develop a habit of “pushing people up.” When you take time to invest in someone else it doesn’t go unnoticed. Every minute you encourage that friend, every mile you go out of your way to do a good deed, every penny you spend to make someone else better, know that God sees it. He’s not only going to pay you back, He’s going to multiply what you’ve sown. When you push people up, the blessings are going to come down! You’re going to get breaks, see His favor, and new doors are going to open to you. As you live your life as a giver, and look for ways to help others, you’re going to see your dreams and desires come to pass. God will fulfill His promises to you and you’ll live the abundant life He has prepared for you

Godspeed soldier. Your service to your family and country will not be forgotten. You will be missed.

Dang Manic...way to make me cry first thing in the morning.
I still can't believe he won't be posting here anymore.
Posted on 8/12 8:20 AM | IP: Logged
Been busy...just saw this....Muther Fletcher. Damn.
While guys like me are generally bland chicken around here Semper was hot sauce. His over the top posting style made me laugh many times and get fired up more than a few. How sad to lose such a good man.
God bless his family and be with them.
Oh and ya'll take care of yourselves.
