I'll repost the comment I just left on his userpage, because once his account is deleted, it won't be there anymore:
If this is a joke, then all I have to say is, "you had me good."
If this is not a joke, and it seems quite genuine, then I am at a complete loss for words. However, I have to respect your decision even though I vehemently disagree with it.
You've been one of my favorite mods and users in general for a long, long while. Years, actually. I knew you would eventually leave due to your family and Pleasant Jay's taking precedence over NG, but I never thought you would decide on getting your account deleted as well. That is a very bold move and I'm not sure I would even have the guts to do it myself. In any case, I will miss you, and this may be the last chance I have to talk to you, but maybe our paths will cross again someday...whether you're dropping off boxes to me or just want to say hello.
