Greetings BGGs,

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing this post. Last week, my uncle, Dave Rachar (aka Jasss333 on these forums) passed away. He was an avid member of this community, and he always spoke so kindly about this site, an indeed, he visited this site on the day he died. It may have been the last site he ever visited.

On behalf of him, I wish to thank each and everyone of you who help to make this site such an encouraging and positive space of gamers and wannabe gamers alike.

If you have any kind words, or experiences or interactions eith my uncle, please feel free to share them here or PM me. I will share them with his family on your behalf.

Sincerely,

-A lucky nephew

I myself had no direct interaction with your uncle that I recall, but am sorry for your loss. Thank you for letting us know.


PS edit: I've notified Octavian so that a memorial badge can be placed.

Thank you both Indigopotter and Justin Case. That's very kind of you both. The funeral will be tomorrow.

I recall a time not too long ago when I was at his place to play a few new games he had picked up where he was excited about a game that he named on the forums. I believe that someone was creating a game and looking for names and he had suggested something like League of Steam? Perhaps I should use the search function and try and pull it up.

Yes, he did suggest The League of Steam and that is what I chose for my game design. Unfortunately, it sits in my notebook, for now. If I do get it out there, I'll be sure to give your uncle credit.

My condolences to you and your family.

Hello everyone.

Thank you again for all of the kind wishes. We've had some time to try and work through the loss, and I'm happy to say that though this is something that I'm sure we'll never truly get over, the family is recovering and re-adjusting.

I know it was something minor, but your kind words were (and still are) very moving.

I'm going to try and be a little more active on the forums as my uncle loved being here and maybe I'll enjoy being more involved as well.
