Chowhound, You Will be Greatly Missed!
« on: April 19, 2014, 11:15:38 pm »
Many here will remember Chowhound, a fellow Brokie who loved Brokeback Mountain and never seemed to tire of talking about our movie.  It is with great sadness that I relate news of his passing.  A mutual friend hadn't heard from him in awhile, and after Googling him, found this:

http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/thestar/obituary.aspx?n=eric-s-rump&pid=170680113

RUMP, Eric S. - Professor Rump died in his 77th year, mourned by his sister Eileen, his nephews Matthew and Stephen, his great-niece Jessica and his great-nephews Oliver and Joseph, lamented by his colleagues at Glendon College, York University, where he spent the whole of his professional career, and deeply missed by his many friends in Ontario, England, British Columbia and Australia. He will be remembered for his wit, his kindness and his good humour. The funeral service will be held at St. James-the-Less, Parliament St., on Tuesday, May 6th at 4 p.m. Donations to Baycrest Foundation or the Canadian Opera Company will be appreciated.

Thanks for letting us know.

I don't recall having any conversations with Chowhound, but I do remember reading CH's posts here on BetterMost.



Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!

Chowhound's first post here.


Hi! I'm chowhound. I've been a regular poster on the Brokeback board at IMDb for the last eighteen months but as so many of my dear friends there are also registering here, I've decided to join them. Anyl guidance in navigating this board most welcome.

Oh, what sad news.  :(

I recall the screen name, but that's about it.

He was a college professor? I wonder what his subject was.  ??? Just goes to illustrate yet again that Brokeback affected people from all walks of life.

My sympathy to his family.

He was less active in the last few years but he never stopped asking questions about Brokeback. I know most here had limited contact with him,  but I just thought you all would like to know about his passing.

Jeff, I believe he was an English professor.

Bruce, how nice to see you here. Yes, Eric was a good man. We were starting to get better acquainted until he took ill. I'll really miss him. He was so gentle and kind.'
