RIP BerserkerBarage

Today we have lost a long time community member. After battling an infection for about a week he awoke this morning with a heavy fever and shortness of breath. He was admitted this morning to the hospital. A short time later on he slipped away and they were unable to revive him. Whether or not you hated him or loved him you at least knew where he stood on any topic you could find on these forums. Many of you will see that we have lost a long time community member. I myself have lost one of my closest friends. My thoughts go out to his wife and family. I shall miss you my friend. Please use this thread to pay your respects. Any disrespect will be removed from this thread. [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_n8TuSVmOrw]To all my friends, present past and beyond Especially those who weren't with us too long Life is the most precious thing we can lose While you were here the fun was never ending Laugh a minute was only beginning BerserkerBarage this one's for you Ever get the feeling you can't go on Just remember whose side it is that you're on You've got friends with you till the end If you're ever in a tough situation We'll be there with no hesitation Brotherhood's our rule we cannot bend When you're feeling too close to the bottom You know who it is you can count on Someone will pick you up again We can conquer anything together All of us are bonded forever If you die I die that's the way it is To all my friends, present past and beyond To all those who weren't with us too long Life is the most precious thing you can lose While you were here the fun was never ending Laugh a minute was only the beginning Berserker, my brother, this one's for you[/url] This song fits perfectly the way I feel. Miss you man. [Edited on 02.25.2010 10:11 PM PST]

  • It's a real shame when even one member of any community dies, but when someone as dedicated as Berserker dies, I think anyone who has even visited Bungie.net once can feel the impact and the huge loss that has happened. He seemed like a really awesome person, and on top of that, a really nice person that would help you anytime he could've. I feel really sorry for his family, and I hope he rests in peace. Later, Berserker. :(

  • "Rose is a Rose is a Rose is a Rose" -G. Stein I did not know him. Many did and called him a great man. I pay my respects in the most humble and sincere way I can. Today, I will play Halo, and I will play it for him. [Edited on 02.27.2010 9:42 AM PST]

  • This forum will surely never be the same without Logan chiming in with his affluence for discussion. I will miss Logan as my first pilgrimage to Seattle was bettered by his presence there, making my trip absolutely amazing and solidifying our differences over a bottle of johnny walker. I'll miss you buddy, you were a great guy and my heart goes out to your wife and family.

  • I have no poem or song or witty quote for this one. I didn't know the guy very well, only saw what he wrote over the years-- but any lost life is tragic. I'd say that total death is to forget what a person did in life, and that when the shell dies the only thing you lose is the thing you bury. Ideas never die. [Edited on 02.27.2010 10:24 AM PST]

  • I don't know what to say. This...is a horrible thing. Its surreal. I'm not sure if I even believe it yet. It just doesn't seem possible. I knew BB pretty well for quite awhile. I have not talked to him in some time, nor played with him, but I still consider him to be one of my good friends. I used to spam him quite a bit on MSN, and here on Bungie.net with whatever nonsense I was laughing at at the time. It seems like yesterday still. Man, this is harder than I thought. You were a great friend BB. I really like talking to you. I loved playing with you and your wife. I had some great times with the both of you, and I'll always appreciate you for being who you were. You never backed own or compromised. You were always a great and loyal person. I respected you and everything about you. From your time working in Criminal Justice, to your work involving helping people in need. You were always there for everyone else. You wanted to make the world a better place for everyone around you. You succeeded in my opinion. To Mrs BB; my greatest condolences. No one should ever have to go through what you're going trough right now. Thank you for always being there for him. We were all jealous that he found someone like you. You two really fit one another. Thank you for posting as well. That really helped me get my head on straight after seeing this thread. To Achilles: I'm sorry to you as well. I know he was one of your best friends, and I'm sorry that you're going through this. We're all here for you man. Thank you for posting this, and letting us remember him. Thank you to everyone who posted here to. I know that this reaction would have elated BB had he seen it. RIP

  • RIP B.B. I never got to know you all that well, but I always saw you around. You seemed like a very cool guy and I'm sad I missed the opportunity to. Best wishes to his family and friends.

  • I never knew him personally, but anyone who has even been simi-active on these forums has had a conversation in a thread with him. Wonderful member of the community. You will most certainly be missed Berserker. My condolences to his family.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] BerserkerBarage To The Bungie Community: Thank you very much for all of the support and kind words. I would like to personally thank Wayne aka Achilles1108 for taking my call the night Logan passed and starting this thread. I know that he loved this community. Reading all of your posts and seeing the pictures was very moving. I agree, it was too soon. I have had the pleasure of playing with a good portion of you all and I got to meet some of you in person and it was a pleasure. I apologize if you see B.B.'s GT on XBox Live but I have to use his GT to access a lot of our Arcade games. Thank you all and keeping it in B.B's style, "Fix your game Bungie." Let this stand as B.B.'s last post, Much Love, ~Mrs. B.B. aka his permanent doubles partner aka Adverseposesion.[/quote] Thank you so very much for posting that. My heart goes out to you and your family.

  • I do not know if this has been posted yet, but here is his last OP in the H3ITWP group; [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] BerserkerBarage Okay, so a recent thread in Optimatch b!tching about Shishka made me want to take a trip down memory lane. Anyone who has been on B.net for any amount of time knows that the person who is in charge of Optimatch always sucks. Because that person is personified as the person who is keeping YOUR Halo experience from being exactly how you want it. So, I decided to go back in time (ie click the last page of Opti) and read what people were complaining about in good ol' 2004. While I was wading through the countless posts of "Anonymous User (Deleted)" who posts a ton, I came across this beauty of a thread: [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=1133989]LINKY[/url] It's only 2 posts, the OP and a "bump", but it certainly caught my eye. To put the post in perspective, this thread was created after Halo 2 was released and Bungie was experiencing some problems with MM in regards to XBL. There were really long wait times and a lot of times the MM process would just start over. A lot of people were upset by this, and for the sheer fact that Bungie had decided to go with their MM process instead of a "server list". So, apparently Bungie does listen to our concerns, it just takes them 6 years and you have to promise to update their blog for them in exchange. ~B.B.[/quote]

  • I would like to say thanks to all of those who paid their respects to BB. I know that his wife and family appreciate everything you guys have done. I will leave you with a quote from his brother Tyler. [quote]I never participated in the Halo scene, but I have been reading the posts and all. I am blown away by the reverence of so many for my brother. Thank you.[/quote]
