    I have tragic news. Skiddy has passed away.

    On Saturday night (Dec 8th), he stopped breathing and his heart stopped. The doctors were able to restart his heart, but the oxygen deprivation damaged his brain. He was placed in ICU. Brain scans confirm he has no brain activity. His parents will be taking him off life support in next few days.

    Join me this Saturday at 7pm EST in TeamSpeak if you wish to share a memory or a story about Skiddy, or wish to say goodbye.

    That is very sad to hear and Jeff will be missed. I don't know what to say and this comes as a real shock. I feel bad for not spending more time on here lately just to talk with him. You never know what can happen and you need to enjoy life while you can. RIP Skiddy.

    yes the worst is always when its sudden and unexpected, let alone seems too soon, but we cant make plans for the unexpected so we gotta try not to make regrets even tho its the 1st thing that comes to mind

    I will not be available at 7:00 PM EST tonight on TeamSpeak. My prayers are with Skiddy's family and he will be missed. I will be on here after I get home later this evening and will see if anyone is still around on TeamSpeak. I know that gaming on DG will not be the same without Skiddy. RIP!

    that is an amazing idea, hopefully they are willing to make a driver model or helmet with skiddy on the side or something, and theres actually a good chance of this not only for the circumstances that a dev may actually want to do the extra work for, but skiddy was Skiddy "Skidmark" so it works on a double level for their game

    good call kirakii, if you need some help or they need something from us feel free to let me or hades know, if we are lucky we can immortalize skiddy in his racing game, and i know he really enjoyed his voice recording we used for the Armor skill in CSS so i dont think it would get much better for him

    of course lets keep in mind its very unlikely for devs to do this kind of thing, otherwise more and more ppl ask and they have to start making judgments on who they will turn down, let alone they just dont like extra work for anything lol, but its worth a shot so thanks kirakii :)

    after thinkin about it a bit i remembered that heart issues arent anything to mess with either

    so if your having trouble some heart troubles then you wanna be ready at all times cuz they can show up quickly, but also the main thing is we shouldnt try to walk it off or anything, cuz a lot of times when someone is having heart troubles they dont really have chest "pains" its more of a tight muscle, tingling or pins across the chest to the arm "discomfort" feeling, so if you think your having any kind of heart episode then definitely get to the hospital cuz surprisingly a lot of ppl have a few mild heart attacks before a big one but they just shook it off like it was any other random discomfort we all have to deal with in life

    its definitely good to grab some "Niacin" which you can find at most of the random pharmacy stores, which is a blood thinner and blood vessel dilator they use often for heart attacks or strokes to open the arteries and vessels for blood flow, so say in extreme cases even where you or a relative is having a heart attack or seems like some kinda stroke and they are known to have those issues, you can put a niacin tablet under their tongue or if they come in capsules you can twist it in half and dump the little beads out under their tongue to try and keep things from locking up, just make sure you tell the doctors and stuff at the hospital or ambulance that they were given whatever so they dont give it to them again and double doses

    What can I say but thank you for the great times, comradery and most of all, being a great human being. Thank you for being the first to welcome me to DG, for convincing me to play at DG. We did great things there and had a blast. My hearts broken. Rest well buddy. Let's try this again some time.

    O7. I know I haven't been on DG in over a year it must be now, but the greatest memories I had on here was playing with Skiddy. I clearly remember him coughing every time we played, and me asking him if he was okay, to which he always either said he was fine or made a funny joke, guess it finally caught up to him in the end. He was such a wonderful and funny person to play and speak with. I just hope that he finally will be able to play his favourite game again in peace and without any problems.

    My biggest condolences to those who knew him both in real life or online and to his family. I will forever miss you Jeff, or as you are more known as. Uncle Skiddy.

    Skiddy saved 3 people with his organs. He had a heart attack. The doctors could not use his heart.
