It is my deepest regret to inform the eve community of the loss of Brian Reardon (Darkroni).

On Sunday 6th May Brian had a heart attack and died in the arms of his best mate Jeff (Kaldragon).

Brian had been playing eve for just over 2 years and coincidently, he died on his two year anniversary of being apart of Omacron Militia. In its prime, Omacron Militia was a small corp, we were like a family and now that Brian has gone we feel like we have all lost a brother.

Brian was a kind and loving person who was always willing to help his corp mates out, I remember once that we had a huge mining op in 0.0 and Brian stayed up all night setting the POS with the next refine as he had the highest skills so that all the members involved could hurry up and make some isk, I believe he kept setting his clock for 3 hours and then watch a movie while waiting.

Out of Brians love for this game, his family have decided to keep his accounts running and continue his list of skills to train, they, we, feel that doing this will keep Brian's spirit with us. They will also be completing his goal of acquiring a Navy Raven through missions.

I felt that it would be a good idea to do a post on these forums so that he can go down as a part of EVEs History and allow the whole community to pay their respects to him. So I would like everyone who is reading this to have a beer and think of Brian. May he Rest In Peace.

Condolences on the loss, man. Been in MMOs long enough to know a few people who've passed. Hurts just as bad as losing someone you know in person, the pixels don't isolate the bond.

May he rest in peace. I can think of no better place for the obituary of a person who loved Eve than in these fora.

It has never ceased to amaze me at how strong the bonds of friendship that can be formed in a game such as EVE. Even if you have never met in person.

I never met Brian but he sounds like a class act and someone worth knowing. My condolences to you and yours and Brian's family.

R.I.P mate.

I received a phone call from JimBob666 on Monday morning informing me that Brian had passed away. I was dumbstruck and lost for words.

Brian (aka Darkroni) was the one of the first players I made friends with whilst playing EVE. Reluctantly, he agreed to have a chat with the then directors of OMCR and became the second newest recruit after myself. He ended up CEO and me, well; I didnít even get to director.Smile

I would like to send my condolences to Brianís family and friends at their recent loss. Having lost my mother five months ago, I can understand what Brianís family and friends are going through at this moment. It is in times like these, friends and family are the key source of comfort and I hope you all get through this time of sadness together.

Rest in peace Brian.

Ive never met Brian in RL, but after flying with him for a year and a half I can honestly say that he was a great guy. One of the first players I met in EVE, Darkroni was always there to help out. He will be missed.

Seriously, people, have some respect.

Though him i met my wife and he was my bestman at my wedding.
Thou im surrounded by friends and family i have never felt so alone as i do at this moment in time.

To Brians family & friends; my sincerest condolences.

Kal I can't even begin to imagine what you're going through, to lose a best friend is to lose a part of yourself.

I was lucky enough to have a chance to get to know Brian back when I recruited the then couple of weeks old noob ( :D ), he turned out to be one of the most loyal, upstanding, decent people I have ever had the honour of meeting in this game.

I raise my beer to Dark, mate, you will be missed.

Rest in peace.

Even when you dont know the person it is always sad when a member of the community passes away.

Thoughts are with his family and friends

Times like this when i wish i was good with words and stuff, but i aint, so i will leave it at that...


Posted - 2007.05.09 21:51:00 - [24]

Knew him from way back and he will be missed. Allways sad when they go away that way. But will allways think of him when i go mine(though it's seldom). And will pay my deepest respect to his family and Jeff/Kald. Hopy u will remember the good times and have a smile instead of beeing sad - in repect for him. Is what he would have wanted!

See u on near a veld-roid Dark/brian - RIP

There is nothing harder than losing ppl u know for some time , Dark/Brian has been a corp m8 for the 9 months i have been in OMCR and has been a good friend and buddy to me and many of the guys there . Words cant begin to explain the saddness that we all feel how ever i hope and pray that he may rest in peace and live in our memory.
