I don't think this was posted on this forum so I copied and pasted this from another. I know the old timers here will remember him.

Bassman passed away on Thursday, Dec. 09, 2021 Keith Leiter of Grand
Junction, CO, was born Dec. 12, 1947, and was 73 years old at time of
his death. He was a contractor by profession, and was an avid
fisherman, hunter, and an all around superb cook. He will be missed.
Thanks for letting us know. RIP Keith
Oh No!!
I'm so sorry to hear that!!
He was 73----I just turned 73 Last Week----Jan 3rd.
Keith & his best Buddy, "Tracy" were 2 of my good friends here for years!!
He just PM'd me a couple weeks ago, just to touch base.
He said he too has quit Smoking Meat, and was also on Oxygen 24/7 too.
He was one of my Favorite Forum Friends, and will be Surely Missed.
RIP Keith "Bassman".
Prayers sent for Keith & all those who Love Him.

Thank you for sharing Bear. It’s been a difficult day.
We’re losing too many of our old friends lately! When I was still just a noob around here, I looked up to guys like Keith for advice on smokers and smoking techniques. Rest In Peace, Bassman!
