Freeper Doctor Raoul Has Died
Raouls Family | 3/25/2013 | Abner

Posted on 03/25/2013 10:08:35 AM PDT by abner

Doctor Raoul died Saturday of a rare form of cancer. He was 58.

Raoul's family contacted us this morning to see if they could find out more about his activities as an activist.

This is such a shock. His family is looking for photos and stories about him.

He is and always will be a Free Republic icon.

He kind of fell off the face of the earth about 2 or 3 years ago now. All attempts we made to reach him failed.

If you have photos please contact me. Please feel free to post stories and I will make sure the family sees this thread.

Doctor Raoul died? Hard to believe. He was such a part of FR. I hope he gets onto the Memorial Wall.

I’m in shock, too. Doctor Raoul and I go way back..........

I’ve been trying to find him for about a year now, as he seemed to have just dropped out of sight. He was planning to come for a visit with my husband and I in Texas.

His phones were disconnected, his email was no longer any good, and the snail mail letter I sent him was returned.

I’m so sorry to hear this. I will remember him and his family in my prayers.

Thanks for letting us know.

We have lost a great American, a great Freeper, and a great friend.

This is very sad, I had wondered from time to time where he had gone. He was a great FReeper activist.

Hard to believe he could be gone. I have thought about him often since he disappeared and was so hoping he was happy somewhere. Everyone will be devastated by this.

Oh no! I was wondering what happened to him.

Didn’t he confront Al Franken once and cause him to lose his cool?

Prayers up for his family. Dear Lord welcome a faithful warrior to his eternal Home.

Will keep him and his family in my thoughts and prayers. My best friend and FReeper “Rogle” just died on 9Feb13. He too was just 58 ( my age as well). Way too young!

Sad day here. If I'm not mistaken, Dr. Raoul was the first (and possibly the only) FReeper ever mentioned specifically by name on Rush's show. Rush read a remark of his, gave proper attribution and mentioned the wit and insight behind it.

RIP.

I remember the Good Doctor from the 2000 campaign to get Gore out of Cheney's house.

He was also at the events that took place outside the Whitehouse before we moved up on Mass Avenue to the Vice Presidents home.

A good Man. he will be sorely missed.

Doc was a staple of the DC Chapter of FreeRepublic.

Back in 1999 and 2000, I had the privilege of standing with him and other DC Chapter members at the White House on Saturdays protesting Bill Clinton.

Doc had a great sense of humor. I hope he can still help protect America from where he is right now, and put in a good word for us.

I don’t have anything from him, but I wanted to offer that I enjoyed exchanges with him, gosh- years ago. We enjoyed making ,Fear and Loathing refernces, on silly stories, many years ago. My prayers go as well- and may God bless his family and send him swiftlt, to better lands.
