We are deeply saddened to announce that on Wednesday, June 17, longtime 49erswebzone.com community member and former moderator Josh Byrone passed away.

Josh leaves behind his wife Nguyet, their son Clark, and unborn twins. As a site, our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. We will always remember Josh fondly as he selflessly contributed to this site throughout the years.

"It has been a fun run and I appreciate the opportunity and working with you guys," said Josh while stepping down as a moderator last year. With the little time he was able to be on this site, he simply wanted to enjoy being a member.

A GoFundMe page has been set with the goal of raising money to support his family. While not created or officially endorsed by this site or any of our partners, the page has already raised over $20,000 in just one day. It is a testament to the number of lives Josh has touched over the years.
