Patches WE GONNA MISS YOU

Dear Compadre,
I wish I could tell you last few words, in the name of the whole EA117 Community.
We're gonna miss you, man.
We all knew you as a proud warrior and one hell of a sniper.
As much as we are all sad, we're happy to have had the honor of knowing you and playing on the same side as you.
You were a great friend and it sucks that you're leaving us.
Our fallen old-timer, thank you for all the laughs and all the mighty headshots you gave us.
We're gonna miss you a lot. You taught us a lot, you fucking son of a gun.
Nobody could wield that fucking sniper like you. But more important, you taught us a great deal about life.
Thank you for everything. We're all gonna miss you a lot, you old fart.
See you soon, old friend. We'll never forget you.

Feels like the whole community of 1942 is diminishing before our eyes. I can remember the name of patches on this server since 2010. Household Desert Combat player. EA117 will miss you! Rest easy my fellow soldier! Or you could kick cancers ass and play with us again, up to you... stay strong bud!

Mali i could not have said it any better
Patches was a real salt of the earth kind of guy, someone that captured the real essence of ea117, a guy that put humor above game and friendship above ego...we always had a long standing jokes that would always brighten my day...even if they were a little mean and evil but never malicious..
i now feel really bad i did not call him as i intended always thinking that he was going to be ok for a while longer but now i lost that chance when it could of matter for that i am sorry my friend...you made ea a better place and you will be truly missed..see you on the other side

That is a nice idea Mali. If I'm reading his time of death and the post correctly, I hope he got to see it.
And rye... regret isn't a good feeling, but I think it is for the better that he went quickly instead of suffering through chemo treatments for a long time.
I'll miss his dirty sense of humor and how anyone who killed him must be a hacker.
RIP buddy!

    His challenges have been going on for some time, so I hope his family and close friends all had their time to make peace with his entering this part of life. We'll certainly miss him around here, and appreciate that he continued to find our little corner of the world inviting, and that he was willing to share his laughter and his wisdom with all of us.

    We will keep watching those awnings, hoping to see the muzzle flash of Patches one last time. Glasses raised for our friend.

      We just lost a good friend to the game and this Community of Players.
      You will be sorely missed.

      Game On my friend...

      RIP Patches. Can someone mod a map and put his name on a wall?

      I heard now ...
      I lack words ...
      I couldn't join the game today due to connection problems, the ping was too high.
      Patches and I always joked about being old and rude and, with that, we ended up playing with Eagle, driving him crazy.
      Patches had a special way of playing, always making traps with the C4.
      He will be sorely missed ...
      One thing I can say and I also regret is playing for so many years with someone and just knowing him by his nickname, I would like to have known him better.
      Farewell, my old and rude battlemate.
      Rest in peace...

      well said cyber, maybe Patches left us with a message that says not to know each other just by their nicknames. RIP Patches.

      i am totally stunned by this news :( :( :( i take breaks from various games to kinda of get a refresh when i return, but this feels like a punch in the gut right now......i always enjoyed the sniping duels he and i had...but when he was on my team, i always felt a sense he was 'watching' over his teammates, as idiots like me went charging into battle...now he is watching over the EA117 community, from a different perspective.

      sorry if i am rambling....i am rather at a loss for words :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

      We should have a yearly meetup where we all get trashed and play DC. Or at least regionally. Not expecting the euro trash to come over to our great country of Corporate America.

      I'd host in my log cabin. People can camp....I'll provide alcohol and hotwife. But not that kind of hotwife.

      Very sad. I just came back after several years to see this.

      I will try to play more to compensate for his loss. RIP.

      "playing a 20 year old game with his special online brothers"

      "and finding out what irritated you so that he could do it to no end gave him the most joy."
      - I am glad I gave Patches some joy when he constantly blew me up with C4 on various parts of EA117 maps.

      RIP Patches.

      Thanks for sharing that Mali!
      I always envisioned Patches with a full mountain man beard though.
