I've received word that Carlyle Hebert, known here and on the The Firing Line as Southla1, passed away at 4:35 p.m. today.
Please take a moment to send a sympathy card to the family. If you wish, put your condolences here -- I'll send a link to the family in a couple of days.
Unfortunately, I don't know that much about his family, other than his wife's name is, I believe, Karlyne.
The family address is:
20504 Hwy. 182 W.
Jeanerette, Louisiana 70544

Carlyle was a good man, an avid hunter, devoted family man, and keen shooter. He will be sorely missed. RIP.
April 13, 2003, 11:12 PM
I am truly saddened by that news.
Carlyle was someone who you liked immediately even if we only knew him through the words he wrote on our screens. His advice was always sound and his humor and good nature came through loud and clear.
We are diminished by his untimely passing. My condolences to his wife and family.

I'll miss him.
Common sense just became a little less common. :(

Like Tam, I will miss him as well. I extend my deepest
sympathy and prayers to his family. I enjoyed each of
his post; we have lost a remarkable friend!

The shuttle breakup...
The Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo's used an ablative heat shield. In other words it got white hot and sloughed off carrying the heat with it. This had a lot to do with the radio blackouts. The shuttle uses the tiles which do not slough off but rather act as insulators. That way all they have is the ionization problem with the radios. It's still there, but not as bad.
They are all #1 in my book and my heart and prayer go out for them and their families.
I can still remember a cold Feb day in 1962. The principal had a TV set up in the auditorium so the whole HS (my senior year) could watch the launch. I fought my way to the front row. After he had achieved orbit everyone had gone back to their classes.......except me and a friend. We sneaked in to the balcony of the auditorium and watched all day till splashdown.
God ride with them.
God ride with you, Carlyle. :(

his last post says it all

Rest in peace.
April 14, 2003, 09:49 AM
We will miss him, but I hope he's at peace now.
April 14, 2003, 09:49 AM
Now I gotta go back and read his PM's from TFL and THR. :(
"May you have food and raiment,
A soft pillow for your head,
May you be forty years in heaven
Before the devil knows you're dead."
Rest in peace, old friend.
April 14, 2003, 09:53 AM
Sad news indeed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
April 14, 2003, 10:10 AM
That is sad to hear.
His insight was valued and we will miss him.
April 14, 2003, 10:33 AM
Breaks my heart. He fought so hard. I thought he was going to make it. His family were fighters also. What a shame for us who are left. The world is an emptier place. Quantrill

This is so sad. I know it is cliche' but he is in a better place with no worries, pain, suffering and most likely happier then any of us.
My prayers go out to his loved ones and a little prayer to hopefully grease the wheels as the gates of heaven.
April 14, 2003, 01:31 PM
It was his TFL posts on the M1(s) he'd recently gotten from CMP that got me motivated to get mine.
April 14, 2003, 01:45 PM
We are all diminished by his passing. Rest well, Carlyle. You have earned it.
April 14, 2003, 02:08 PM
He was a good man, and will be missed.

Thanks for posting that, Mike.

It is always saddening and humbling when someone you 'know' passes.
April 14, 2003, 04:24 PM
Death sucks :(
Sorry to hear about this loss.
April 14, 2003, 05:22 PM
May those who knew him in life
find peace in his memory and
he comfort in the hands of God.
Rest in peace.
April 14, 2003, 05:56 PM
58 is too young to go. His knowlege base will be missed here. His intelligence will be missed here. His sense of humor will be missed here. His presence in general will be missed here. But with how much we will miss him, I imagine it pales in comparison to how much those who really knew and loved him will miss him:He is survived by his wife, Karlyne Lanclos Hebert of Jeanerette; his mother, Doralisse LeBlanc Hebert of Jeanerette; three daughters, Shanda Segura and her husband, Randy Segura, and Katelyn Hebert, all of Jeanerette, and Jamie Gonsoulin and her husband, Rodney Gonsoulin, of Franklin; two grandsons, Drake Segura of Jeanerette, and Trae Gonsoulin of Franklin; two granddaughters, Harli Segura of Jeanerette, and Zoe Mae Gonsoulin of Franklin; his brother, Richard Hebert and his wife, Lisa Hebert, of New Iberia; his sister, Mary Elizabeth Hebert Taylor and her husband, Don, of New Iberia; and two nieces, Amanda and Taylor Hebert, both of New Iberia.
Their loss and the hole they will feel for probably some time will be immense- I hope that the hole and feelings of loss alleviate soon, that they remember the good times and hold on to their happy memories of him. I hope they can think back on him and be comforted without the kind of emptiness that usually follows such a loss as soon as possible.

Look, we beseech thee, upon the family members of our beloved brother now fallen asleep. Guide them with Your gentle hand, and comfort them in their time of sorrow. Let them grow in their love for each other, and provide for them only fond memories. Send Your Holy Spirit to increase in them their love for You and Your Word, and bless them with the knowledge of a wonderful reunion in Heaven. In the name of Christ, our risen Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, ever one God. Amen

Little left to be said except, goodby Carlyle, I wish we had had the chance to get together for that meet you talked about. Life is short and often not fair.
My thoughts will be with the Hebert family as listed in the obit., kindly posted by Mike and his extended family here as well.
As far is I know, Carlyles last post at TFL:
A fond farewell!
