Today we were sadly informed about the death of Chris Carrick, aka GTA3Freak-2001, one of the community's longest standing and most respected members. Chris was 27 when he died on Thursday. He had a disease called Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
In the words of Chris's brother, Matthew..
QUOTE (Chris's Brother)
When he spoke about this forum it sounded like he played a big role in it - He was very proud of this Forum - Told everyone it was his full time job as he loved it. I am sorry for the Forums loss.
We extend our deepest sympathies to Chris's friends and family.
I... can't believe. I just can't believe! He was one of the moderators who had served this forums since 2004-2003. A legend of GTAForums. Rest in peace Chris, you will never be forgotten! He couldn't even hit his 30,000 post!
It's weird to read his profile now, I feel sorry for him and his family. There has to be a way to make this topic get more attention, maybe it can be added as a banner on this forum or something? I added it to my member title to spread the word
Wow, I'm pretty speechless at the moment. I didn't exactly know Chris all that well, but I know he was looked up to as one of the better staff members around here. A huge contributor to these forums and a very, very sad loss.
Rest in peace, Chris. This place won't be the same without you.
