It is with great sadness that I need to inform you all about the passing of Clifton Jacobs, also known as Electro. As some of you know, Clifton has been very ill for quite some time. On Friday, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. The illness, along with other challenges he was facing, was just too much for him to cope with and sadly, he took his own life on Sunday.

He loved Panthers football and he loved this message board. Football brought him great joy and "passion". He loved all of you and enjoyed stirring the pot. In fact, he was "passionate" yesterday as he scolded me for saying I wanted the Saints to win!

His family requested I notify his Panther friends. The details of a service have not been made yet, but Crumpler Honeycutt Funeral Home in Clinton, NC will be handling the arrangements.

Please keep his family in your prayers. If you want more information, feel free to contact me via email at LThomNC@aol.com.

Thank you,
Leslie Thompson

I hate to hear this. Thanks for letting us know. I wish his family and friends well.

We'll miss him. The Huddle won't be the same without Electro.

This is terrible news. I wish I had known he was going through so much.

I'm stunned.

I will miss him dearly. He is my life and I dont know how Im suppose to live without him. I love him with all my heart. I talked to him right before it all happened. This is so heartbreaking for me. We spent his last few hours just holding each other. This is the hardest thing I have to deal with. I am so lost.

I have had a suicide in the family before. And the most tragic thing was the attendance at his funeral; it was massive. It just seemed so tragic that he never knew how loved he really was.

I hope our friend Electro knew that he was loved while he was living.
