Nice, very tactful and disrespectful way to state that.
Like the link said, Big Jim passed away back in June of 2005.

There's one noun and one adjective that works for all of us and doesn't have to have any other meanings attached when stated.

dead

live

No need to use a verb to describe one's existence.

I found it online but can't remember where, it's in a forum somewhere. It was a forum he and one of his co-workers set-up, but then Jim's daughter had it stopped. It's still around but takes a little while to find it.
Google Big Jim's Black Book and start scrolling!
It is a great read for those still into brushed, especially if you're into 4 cell and / or oval racing.
It's based on first gen motors like the Trinity Cobalt and P2K2's etc, but has some very good advice

I think he was on the rccar.com forum. I learned a lot from his book and his postings.
