Another old school FP veteran has passed far too soon. In all my interactions with him he was always good natured and his love for Fire Pro was mightier than ten thousand suns.

R.I.P. Fullbug, you will be missed.

RIP Fullbug.

I didn't know you as well as a lot of the members here, but It was nice chatting with you on twitch the few times we interacted. :'(

Damn. I lurked for a long time on the forums, and only became really active when rumblings of a new Fire Pro started, but he always came off as an incredibly fun person.

Someone mentioned a while back, to ask the developers if they could put Ceese's main edit in FPW as a default. Maybe we can bring that up again, and add Fullbug to the request.

Fullbug had his guys up in most everyone's tournaments, including mine. I remember first testing my streaming capability late in the US evening, and he was still awake to hop in and give me feedback on the speed. He was committed to making the absolute most of his time with FPW, and was always so chill and enthusiastic whenever he was online for a sim or two.

The Soakoliseum was broken in early on a Doc Overdose run, and the good doc stayed in the high tiers, a constant threat to any would be challenger. Whenever someone rolled him on the wheels the chat would erupt in a litany of RIPs.

One of the best matches the koliseum's had so far was fullbug's Sweet Leaf against my Snickers MAX, a double debut exhibition match. bugger was watching live and he was so happy because Sweet Leaf finished on exactly the move he wanted.

And let nobody forget Horrid Hood's memetastic losing streak in JJB's fisrt iron man tournament, stealing the show and everybody's hearts.

Rest in Peace, bugger. Give macho man my regards.

Awful news. I didn't know Bug well, but I usually enjoyed the things he would post. When he first announced he was sick, I hoped it would be one of those situations where he pulled through and we worried for nothing. The real world can be cruel sometimes. Rest in peace, thanks for the memories.

Man this sucks. First Ceese and now this.

It's so odd how comforting the community has been to me over the years. It's always really been there. Like an old town where time stops. Well, eventually time messes up everything. I hate that we've lost two key components and I hate that this man lost it all. In our thoughts man. You'll be missed.

All the time he was missing from the board I was thinking that maybe he was recuperating. At least he's resting now. No more pain. No more meds. I will miss him greatly.

He was one of a kind. A disturbed edit making mind combined with the kindest most supportive heart. An engine of the community and streaming scene. A good dude. Fuck.

Aw fuck. This was the news I was hoping not to hear. I'll always remember him for his crazy edits, omnipresence on various streams and his good will and positivity on the thread. It will be weird using his edits in sims knowing he's not there to be able to watch.

RIP Fullbug - my best wishes to the family at what is a particularly hard time to suffer such a loss. If they come to know of this thread I hope his family can have some small comfort from the affection everyone here has for him.

He and I were friends on Steam and I noticed he hadn't been on in a couple weeks.

Always friendly, always enthusiastic. RIP.

RIP fullbug.

He was a great guy and always positive, I always smiled when I saw him popping into a thread to reply.

I'm going to miss him and it's hard to believe I'm not going to see him here or the Steam comments.

Old Baby and Sen basically summed it up perfectly. Absolutely gut-wrenching to see someone so positive in the face of something so horrible be taken away. I wasn't as close with him as others, but his influence will reach well beyond the boards for me. His entire attitude and enthusiasm for life despite what he faced is just—well, it makes you step back for a second and just see things in a different light. It makes me want to be a better person, to be completely honest.

R.I.P., Bug. :(

Discord is definitely not the same without Fullbug. I enjoyed chatting with him.

When he wasn't on for the last couple weeks, I was worried, but thought it was because of the holidays. I need to pay more attention to the "Everything Else" forum as I've been mostly in the World section as of late.

One time, I myself took a break from Fire Pro. I was off Discord as well. When I returned to Discord, Fullbug said he was worried about me. I thought that was nice of him to think that :)

I'm sad. Discord is definitely not the same without him as he would usually log in in the early mornings when I get home from my 3rd shift job.

Here's a 10 bell salute for you, Fullbug. Then go tear it up with Ceese up there, you hear?

Pretty cool that every one on here had the same experiences with him over the years and they were nothing but positive. Stu had a great post above where this place has always been a spot where time never changes and it always remains the same when you check back in. Hopefully we can keep it that way. Going to miss Fullbug.

Fuck! I just woke up to this. I haven't even posted here in a while, but hearing another member of our community is gone hit me hard.

A large part of me feels guilty about our last interactions. I think we may have chatted on streams or something since, idk, but the last time I have on record that we talked was over the fact that he had wanted to submit his edit, Nutsack Ned, to Transgender Wrestling Alliance and I wasn't comfortable with it since I saw it as a joke on trans people's genitals. To be honest, I'm quite certain that wasn't the intent at all. And even when a lot of people gave me a lot of shit for it, he was actually really respectful of my choice. I'm glad I checked in and tried to make sure everything was ok, and he said it was, but I'm kind of kicking myself now hoping I didn't come off like a jerk when he was actually being genuine. I guess I wish I had said more. I guess I wish I had realized what was going on and taken all that into account. Idk.

I remember when I did the death match tournaments he submitted his edit, loathsome veil, for the tournament. He was always excited about everything that was going on and happy to be a part of it. While I don't remember all that many specifics I remember him always being around, always showing up, always loving fire pro. And isn't that what this community is about?

I'm still a bit at a loss for words and wishing something I could say could magically fix all the feelings and thoughts running through my head but all I can say is, RIP bug. Thank you for all you contributed to the community. Your edits will live on. Your memory will live on.

May you find peace in the afterlife, whatever that means for you.
