Jim Mazurek

 

I'll try to join via the stream. I did my undergraduate in Chicago, and one of the friends I made during my years in Chicago, whom I found to share my passion for the TI-99/4A was an older gentleman named Jim. He passed on some years ago, but was an active member of the CTIUG. His last name escapes me, but I'd hop on the Red line down to the South Side and he'd pick me up around 87th and the Dan Ryan El Station, where'd we'd head to his joint and talk TI for hours on end. He used to run a BBS off of either his TI or his Geneve, not the main CTIUG BBS but a secondary as I recall. Man is he missed. After finishing my undergrad, on one of my Chi Town trips from MI, I tried to visit him, but met his brother and he'd just passed away in that timeframe. Wish I could remember his last name...I can still picture Jim and his amazing TI and Geneve systems in all their glory. I'm sure some of the long time CTIUG-ers remember him. I went to the Lima faire with him once, and I believe I met him at the Chicago faire one year as well. The other CTIUG-er I interacted with, though more online than in person, was "Froggy" - Mike Maksimik (sp?) - is he still active in the community?
