Tragic News about the founder of Netrition


Netrition, as many low-carbers are aware of, is one of the best online low-carb stores. I buy all my low-carb specialty products from Netrition and have done so for years.

The co-founder and president of the company, Mr. Tom Roddy, aged 43, died recently. It's such a shock to me, as I had no idea that he was so gravely ill. Apparently, few people knew about his recent battle with brain cancer. His brother, Bernie Roddy, is vice president of the company and will continue the business.

In addition to Netrition, the most popular online low-carb forum, Lowcarbfriends.com was founded by the same man. I joined in 1999.

Obituary

May God bless his family and extended family and friends, and comfort them at this time. Thank you, Tom, for all the wonderful work that you did through the years for the low-carb community. You will be missed.

I saw this below the cookie recipe. It's so very sad...he was so young. :(

I know we all mourned his passing, especially on lowcarbfriends.com It was unbelievably sad. He did a lot for the low-carb community. His brother took over the business of Netrition - a fantastic online store.
