Gamer Heaven just got a little more interesting. One of my XBLBFF's Ken died this week.
He was one of my first XBL friends almost 2 1/2 years ago, and was the one to introduce me to the core of great friends that I now enjoy. When Gears of War came out, we were online daily for 5-10 hrs taking no prisoners. YES we 2-pieced, YES we roadie-ran straight up to you and blew you into locust loaf, YES we talked shit, and YES we backed it up!
Squirrl, or Kenny to the rest of us, had one of the hottest tempers in the game. You know... he was one of those guys who almost got incoherent when he bitched you out for Spawn Sniping, Exccessive Pistol Melee, or you know anything and everything. LOL.
Oh... how we used to waste away entire weekends building our mechs on Chromehounds!
He was always a gentleman. He never hesitated to send wiener pix to any guy that tried hit on any of the ladies, or send bad feedback to sexist shit-talkers.
Ken was an airborne infantry soldier in the 101st airborne deployed twice to the middle-east, who had just gotten back from Iraq a few months ago. He had only been married for a week before his death.
Xbox LIVE will be a less exciting place without you Squirrl. You will be missed!
