Woke up this morning to find some horrible news on Facebook. Earlier this morning [G.H.O.S.T.] passed away after a long battle with cancer. His family says that he went peacefully surrounded by friends and family.

I know many here enjoyed talked with him and I'm not sure how many are friends through Facebook or were even aware of the situation.

Keep his family in your thoughts and please leave some kind words for him and his family. I plan on linking this thread to his Facebook page so everyone can see the kind of support he had from all over.

Rest well dood, you're gonna be missed and there's not going to be another like you. I'm gonna be "Gaming Hardcore on Old School Titles™" for you tonight dood.

Damn, that's horrible news. Ghost, we will miss you and I loved talking about video games with you. You'll always be one of the greatest VGF members I've met. R.I.P. homeboy and you'll always be in our hearts.

= ( That is terrible news. I was wondering where he'd been lately. I think he'd want us to share the good times because he was an easygoing, fun guy. My favorite thing about Ghost was his sense of humor. He always knew how to make a thread (even a contentious thread) laugh with a humorous comment. I don't have Facebook or I'd leave my condolences with his friends/family. Rest in Peace [G.H.O.S.T]™. Your VGF name will forever be trademarked and we will always remember you.

[G.H.O.S.T]™ was a rare breed on the VGF. Admittedly, I haven't been on here as long as most, but long enough to know whose posts to read and whose to just pass over. I always read what [G.H.O.S.T]™ had to say, and as C.W. said, he had a memorable sense of humor.

It's strange having never met someone, then to learn of their passing, how one can truly regret never having met them. It's a shame, really. The precious little I knew about [G.H.O.S.T]™ was more than enough to tell me he was man of the highest order.

I'll be thinking about you, buddy. May there be something better on the other side, if only so you can enjoy it.

He was an awesome guy and I will always remember him for his funny posts here. That sense of humour of his was what kept him strong even during these days of suffering which he never let anyone on to. He was a unique person and I will always remain a big fan of his. Team GhosT forever and as he would say - ROLL TIDE ROLL !

RIP, my friend. The world just become a little less special.

What......this is terrible. RIP dood :/

G.H.O.S.T. was one of the most thoughtful and one of the funniest members of the VGF. Our entire community is surely diminished without him. Best wishes to his loved ones as they have lost someone truly special.

And yet, sad as I am to see this news I also smile a litle. If there is an afterlife I know he is already making fun of it and offering satirical advice to make it run better.

I'm a very frequent lurker here, but I don't often post much. In fact this is really the only forum that I go to. Anyway, I always come here, especially during the work day because I enjoy the forum and G.H.O.S.T was a part of that. I enjoyed his posts and I'm very sorry to hear that cancer has claimed yet another great life. RIP buddy and thanks for helping to make my work days tolerable at my boring insurance job. My sincere condolences to G.H.O.S.T's family and friends. Keep on gaming where ever you are G.H.O.S.T.
