Rest in Peace Densetsu

Discussion in 'GBAtemp & Scene News' started by gamecaptor, May 20, 2016.



    I know this is where people are supposed to say "hi" but today we say "goodbye" to one of our fellow Tempers. Yesterday we lost Densetsu to cancer. Some of you know him from being a staffer here and others from the Blood of Bahamut translation.

    Having known him out in the real world I can say he was a great human being. He was going to school to be a doctor so he could help people, because that was something he was passionate about (and games of course too :)

    Rest in peace Densetsu! You will be missed!

    I am shocked and upset to hear this, Densetsu was a great staffer and member here and tbh I thought he was in recovery.
    Please pass on my condolences if possible to his wife.

    So shocked..

    RIP Densetsu

    I never knew the guy but may he rest in piece

    Removed video as I thought it was being taken as joke. This is no joke.

    Are you serious!??? :cry:

    I've lost my grandma to cancer, I have a friend my age who has a stage four brain tumor as a result of a very rare genetic disease called Li-Fraumeni Syndrome; normally the body has two P53 genes that suppress tumors, but this only gives one and his mom had it, his sister has is, as do some of his kids... cancer fucking sucks :sad:

    I've spoken to him, granted, I didn't do it very much, and now I wish I had -_-

    Never knew the guy, but cancer is a horrible disease and no-one deserves to die because of it.

    R.I.P. Densetsu.

    Even though I've had only ome encounter with him when he was a mod, it pains me to hear news like this.

    Rest in peace, Densetsu. GBAtemp will miss you.

    I'm saddened to learn this news today.
    Last time we talked about it, he explained all he went through to fight it (a lot!) and it was promising, even if it's never really won. But he sounded like he still had times.
    He kept his humor and joked about it (at least here when he talked about it) and was always strong and didn't feel like abandoning, he was fighting it and always had hope to help other people in return.
    He decided to work in oncology to help people with cancer too, and he is the one to be taken from it.

    He was a great member and friend, always kind and helpful. He will be missed by a lot of people, even people he never met.
    I never met other staff members, but hoped we could meet one day. You'll be with us in our heart.

    all my thoughts to you/him, and people who knew him.
