Some Unfortunate News...

Recommended Posts

Je m'attendais à jamais voir c'est mots là, je suis tellement triste. T'étais le seul québécois que je connaissais bien dans cette communauté. T'étais toujours un gars super heureux et drôle. Tu savais vraiment comment rendre tout les situation plus amusant et c'était toujours le fun avoir des conversation avec toi. T'étais un très bon gars et tu va me manquer. Tout le monde te respectait et était content de t'appeler leur ami. Il avait pas beaucoup de personne qui a fait un autant grand impact dans ce communauté que toi. Ceci va être le dernier message que je vais écrire en français sur ce forums, parce que t'étais le seul qui les comprenais. Repose en paix mon ami, je me souviens.

I'm not gonna pretend like I spoke a single word of dialogue to him or him to me, but even as someone with that little contact with him I can tell that he's made an important impact on the community. Just from the way people talk about him and the takes he gave on the forums, he's always struck me as a very down to earth but level headed guy who always had a good moral compass. 

 

My deepest condolences go out to him, his family, and his closest friends.

Wow. I didn't expect to see this today. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. I can't say I knew him well but I know there are members of this community that have been hit hard by this news and my prayers go out to you, as well. 

 

Rest in Peace.

I don't know who to talk to about the most obscure bullshit anymore, you had something to add to every discussion, no matter what it was. I wish this wasn't real. Forever king, rest easy roux, you'll be missed by everyone who was lucky enough to meet you.

A bit late to this, but I thought I'd say something as well. 

 

I never really knew roux too well, aside from stopping by his streams ever so often when he'd post in the shoutbox and conversing a bit. This is truly devastating to hear, and as many have said above my deepest condolences and prayers go to those who knew him well, his family, friends, and loved ones. I could never begin to imagine how they, as well as members of the commmunity that did know him are hurting right now, and I won't try to. It seemed as though everything looked up after his house burned down last year, when the entire community rallied together to support him.

 

I was tasked by BoM to skim through the 12 hours of footage of the fundraiser stream and collect clips for highlights, and it was only then that I realized just how many people he had impacted and how many wanted to help contribute. Through watching those who volunteered to stream, the people who showed up in the chat, and the ones generous enough to donate to the cause, it was evident that he had made a deep impression on the community and all of the members of it. Both close friends in the community and those who did not know him chose to participate and put their effort towards helping, and it just goes to show how amazing of a person he was.

 

Although I did not see it firsthand, I know that he has made an everlasting impression upon the community, and that he will not be forgotten. My only regret is not having tried to get to know him better before it was too late. 

 

May you rest in peace roux.

I saw this post last night and I still haven't been able to wrap my mind around it. It's super hard to grasp that someone so young can be taken from us so quick, and I'm sure none of us ever imagined that something like this could happen in the community. Life is fleeting, spend time with family and friends every moment you get, as you might not get another opportunity. 

 

Going back and reading his Goodbye thread as well as reading posts from those who were closest to him brought me to tears, and although I didn't know roux too well, I knew of his accomplishments at SG. roux's legacy will live on for years to come. My condolences to his friends and family.

 

May your soul rest in peace.

My deepest condolences to his loved ones, family and friends. This must be extremely hard to bear with, and I can't even imagine how this feels.

The fact that this thread was made shows that all of his accomplishments have helped alot in this community, and it's really touching to see all of the kind words that everybody here has said and it just shows that he was a great guy, and a legend to go down in an online community. As far as my memory can go, I remember the few interactions I've had with him they were always fun and I ended up with having some good laughs.

 

Rest In Peace.

 

(Sorry if my english here is bad)

Truly saddened to hear this news and my thoughts remain with roux's family and friends at this unimaginable time of tragedy.

 

 Many of you have vast memories of your interactions and friendships with roux, which have been warming to read and really shows the impact that roux had on the SG community and with each of you individually. To those that are working with @Johnon videos/clips/etc - Thank you. I'm sure this will be well received and warming to those close to him.

 

With roux's birthday also upcoming in a couple of weeks, I imagine many of you will continue to remember and celebrate his life.

I've witnessed fatal tragedies in my life outside of this community before, but never would I have ever expected to witness one within it.  Roux was an integral piece to SG--his personality and dedication to this community was incredibly influential; and that's an understatement.  Whenever logging onto SG's Teamspeak, it was his interactions I looked forward to the most when I saw him online because I already expected his sarcastic 'schtick' if he or I joined the same channel.  I will greatly miss his sarcasm, as I feel it closely resembles my own, and I also appreciate his takes on certain topics.  Roux, I will never forget you, my friend.

I'm truly heartbroken to hear such a spirited and golden hearted member of this community pass away. You've undoubtedly had a tremendous impact on this community that most of us will remember for the rest of our lives. I will remember you as a person who  brought laughter to this community with your personality and memes. You are a long standing member of this community and one of the finest I've met. I still remember the days you were promoted to the administrative team and the days I spend teaching you the ropes, the days we spend on meetings and the days gaming together. I had a lot of fun and I'm truly happy how far you made it in the community. I will always relish these memories we shared together. 

 

I'd like to pass my deepest condolences to his family and loved ones. May you rest in peace my friend.

I always appreciated the many laughs and smiles i got from roux's posts. I am quite shocked and saddened to hear about his passing. He was always courteous, professional , and everything that seemed to define what many of us at SG strive to be : Good people.

 

My deepest condolences to those who knew him.

 

Rest in Peace and Be Well sir.

Man I am crying my eyes out. I have only just heard the news and it doesn't feel real.

 

Roux was a great influence here on so many here just by being himself. He was loved. That is reflected by the beautiful messages on this thread. He was always such a genuine, funny and real guy. I still vividly remember meeting him for the first time and having a fun little competition with him on 1v1. I remember laughing at everything he said and just having a blast. I left early, but during the time I had here you were one of the pillars that made this place somewhere many could come to distract themselves from life and have a good time. 

 

It's crazy the impact that someone you meet online for only a short time can make. That in itself is a testament to the character you had. I want to send my condolences to his family and those who knew him well. Thank you for every good memory. Love you mate. Rest in peace <3

The last thing I imagined learning from an SG Discord notification was news like this but here we are. I wish I had been around more the last few months to chat and support you as you were getting back on your feet from the fire. You were one of the people who made me feel welcomed here when I first came over and your encouragement to stick around because “we’re all buds around here” was so impactful. I’ll miss you, Roux. Catch ya next round!

Roux, your dear friend @Ned informed me of your passing. My heart breaks for your friends and family that are mourning your passing. My heart breaks for what you won't get to experience because you're no longer here with us. Looking at and wearing your band's merch has a new found meaning. Rest In Peace old friend, wishing you Godspeed and glory. May God bless your friends and family during this time, and forever. Watch over the Apes from above!

I have been trying to find the words to describe how sadden I am by roux passing and I'm still at a loss for words. Roux was one of the few people who welcomed me into sg when i first joined back in 2016 and helped me learn the ropes of this community. helped me find my place in this massive community and he introduced me to a lot of people(Soon to be friends) all over. The impact he had on us all just goes to show how much of a truly genuine guy he was he is and always will be in our hearts and in our thoughts.

Rest easy and fly high my friend

So glad we could all band together and enjoy some of the same things he did and share a lot of laughs in the process. Roux will forever be a part of SG.
