Independent Manufacturers regrets to announce the untimely death in real life of one of it's most senior players Sean Liam Bowler aka Kirian Skellig. Sean went into hospital for a final operation to help repair damage to his left eye which he received when being mugged back in November, unfortunately he had an adverse reaction to the surgery and suffered a massive coronary from which he failed to recover. Sean passed away last Wednesday, leaving his wife who is also an Eve player, and an ex member of Independent Manufacturers, our deepest sympathies go out to her.

As Kirian Skellig, Sean was one of the founders of Independent Manufacturers, having played the game not long after it started. Kirian will be remembered by both members of INDEP and other players who encountered him in his home areas of Lonetrek and Citadel as being an extremely helpful person who would go out of his way to help new players as much as possible. Kirian will be extremely missed by all of those who knew him as a warm hearted person with a great sense of humour, and a great sense of honour.

INDEP will be organising a memorial service for Kirian/Sean to be held in Usi, the system he had called home for nearly 8 months, as soon as possible, details will be posted here. All who knew him are welcome to join us in this time of great sadness. We are trying to arrange with the GM's some way to create a permanent memorial to Kirian/Sean in Usi, and we request that all players respect this memorial, whatever it turns out to be.

Sean, all of us at Independent Manufacturers will miss you.

I know how it is, when a loved one passes away and everyone comes to you with their sympathy. Really doesn't help much, but I'm sorry for your loss.

Although I only knew Kirian for the six months or so that I have been in INDEP, I felt like I had known him for years.

He was a true friend and wonderful guy to work with.

He will be sorely missed by all those who flew with him

I had the pleasure of knowing Kirian both in EnB and here in Eve. He was always willing to help those that asked and was a hugh help to me in starting in Eve. I trully will miss talking to him in game. My simpathy and best wishs go out to his wife. Crying or Very sad

Please keep us informed on the memorial and if any petetion is needed in support of some permanent rememberance to be placed in game is needed. I will attend and support both.

Rest well Kirian. You will be sorely missed.

As I learned of Kirian's/Sean's passing away on sunday I was shattered.

As former CEO of INDEP I got to know Kirian right from the start of Eve, and his wife a few months later. A great guy with a good sense of humour, but foremost a team player always willing to help his friends.
As all of us he had his ups and downs with Eve when it didn't work the times it was most crucial, but he always kept on fighting and helping out where he could.

I was shocked to say the least when I heard he had gotten mugged and had an operation a while back, but all the more joy when he returned and things brightened up.
And all the more shock and sadness with his passing away. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him, as well in Eve (and EnB before that) as in the world outside the pod.

I feel sorry for his wife and hope she will make it through this. I know she's a fighter.
Take care
