Hello everyone.

Most of you probably don't know me, but I am Alex's (aka Super Blooper) brother.

I know that Alex was generally somewhat known on here, so I thought I should share the news of his passing.

 

About two hours ago, at about 1:14 am (GMT +1), I had noticed that he was dead, after passing in his sleep.

He has had a minor form of lung cancer for about a year, and he was expected to live for a few more years at least, even maybe winning the battle and living a long life, but unfortunately, it took him away from us now.

 

I also want to say thank you to the people on this site.

Having severe depression didn't let him enjoy most things, even if he wanted to, but making customs and being apart of this community made him as happy as I've seen him in a long time.

 

And I've got to say that Beard216 has had the biggest impact on him. Alex as always been a loner and never had that many friends, so it was really nice to see him make a new friend through this community.

 

I will upload his two most recently finished customs, as I have his account details and can upload his last songs properly on his account.

 

I will also answer/respond to any question/comment anyone may have.

I did not get to know your brother as well as others here and only knew him thru his postings. He seemed to be a very good and kind person. Thank you for sharing with us. I'm very sorry to hear of this truly sad news. My deepest condolences and may you find strength in your time of loss. Know that your brother was well liked in this community. He will be missed.

WHAT?!

 

God dammit. I told him I'd go and bother him in Ireland and make him go AirSoft-ing with me. Sheesh as far as I know he never mentioned lung cancer.

 

I lost my father to prostate cancer a few years back so I'm not gonna say I know how you feel 'cuz that's a bull attempt at making you feel better, but I can sympathize with losing someone so close. It'll be difficult for C3 to lose such a staple member of our community but it's nothing compared to the loss of family.

 

I didn't know him all that well but man, he's a damn cool guy.

 

Much love to you and your family.

Wow, this is saddening to say the least. He was one of the best, if not the best, both on FoF.net and the C3 forums. I wish the best for you and your family, Archer.

 

R.I.P. Alex, you will be missed.

Alex had a great taste in music and a hard work ethic in making customs.  Very few authors bother with making Pro Guitar/Bass charts yet Alex went out of his way to include them in lots of his customs.  He will be missed!

And I thought the saddest thing I would see here was people requesting official DLC...

I did not get to know Alex better, but of the few times I talked with him, I understood he was a very nice guy, just like most people on this forum, that's why he was of the few people to sort of help me in my depression, because when I was feeling like the deepest piece of shit, he and others reminded me that I was not alone.
 

I really don't know how to react, in any other way than sending you and all of Alex's surroundings my condolences. Being a very lonely person, losing someone from this forum is like losing someone from my family.

 

I want to adress all of you an important message: Just like Taylor Swift, MCR and Jason Mraz reminded us: Cancer is a bitch, and that is the only thing litteraly everyone wants to see die. It litteraly happens everyday. Please please PLEASE, donate to cancer research: http://www.cancerres...pport-us/donateso that one day we won't have to see any more people go like Bowie, Adam Yauch, Carl Sagan, Graham Shapman, and sadly, Alex.

Hope they have a working full band set with a modable console up there, we'll miss you.
