Does physics forums pay tribute to every dead user?

In summary, there was a thread on the site paying tributes to a deceased user. It was mentioned that there are many members on the site and it's rare to know why they stop posting. The thread was started by the user's wife to inform others of his passing. It was also noted that the user was very active in the homework help forums and there may have been comments about his absence before his wife's post.

No, there are too many members and when they stop posting it's rare to know why. That thread was started by his wife to let us know he was gone.

Also note that Ray was very active in the homework help forums. I haven't looked, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were some comments about his absence before his wife posted.
