RIP Arborealus

Post by Xouqoa »

I just found out that Arborealus' user passed away back in April at the age of 59 years old.

I remember him as a genuinely nice guy, and it made me sad to hear of his passing.

I just saw it as well and thought to come here. He was one of the good guys. Both in-game and out-. I had the joy of meeting him several times, at the Vegas Fan Faire, at a CD-meetup in ATL and also visited him at his home in Monroe, LA. He was always great company - kind, witty, generous to a fault. He was a bit of a renaissance man - a biologist, a guitarist, a singer, a cook, and in game an explorer, a goof, a fletcher and a vast repository of knowledge. And even though our relationship had dwindled to a sporadic exchange of sarcastic comments about the state of US politics or sending links to cool new music every once in a while, he was my friend. And I will miss him a lot. There aren't that many people from my EQ days where I think "Oh man, it'd be great to pick up the family and travel to the US to visit." Allen was one of them.
