Chekken comitted suicide
« on: July 04, 2012, 02:39:51 PM »
My friend Andrew (screen name Chekken) committed suicide on July 2. He wrote in his suicide note that I inform the Urban Dead community, since he had many friends here.

Andrew was a good player and a great person. Though he suffered with depression and anxiety for several years, he was a very nice person to those he considered friends. He had no qualms with standing up for what he believed in. He was an active philanthropist and often gave money and blood donations to the local Red Cross. I met Chekken quite a while ago through the Axes High community, and we often spoke outside of the game. We met a few times in person. I recall there was a time when we went to Wendy's and he paid for me to have the most expensive item on the menu on his dime. He never spoke ill of anyone when I was with him, and seemed excited and happy. I would have never guessed that he was depressed.

His friends, family and girlfriend will miss him sorely, and I hope (even if you didn't know him) that you wish him well...wherever he may be.

Any contact online we can send condolences to? Like an online memorial to give condolences to his family?

I didn't "know" Chekken and I never played UD with him but I do remember him from the old DEM board.

Carlos, please accept my condolences for the passing of your friend.      :-[

This is Prime Minister David Cameron. I am sorry to report that Masumi Minogue spontaneously combusted while on active duty. It is believed that she had read one too many faked internet suicide reports. She will be a sad loss to our country and our hearts go out to her friends and family at this difficult time.

Sorry, but I have seen too many of these now. Car accidents, suicides, even being killed in Afghanistan (that one was particularly easy to disprove). Without a full name and a town/city, and a link to a local news report or a myspace/facebook page where people are also grieving, without even taking the trouble to create a new account to break the news, these things are almost invariably bullshit (I'm aware of only one genuine one). Usually the deceased reappears after a few months and either shamefacedly admits they made it up or even just brazens it out. I'm annoyed enough by these now to be happy to take the risk of being a cruel and heartless bitch (especially since I don't post here any more). So feel free to prove me wrong.

Chekken's Weekly Recap - Jul 30 2012

Do you know what time of the week it is? Time to talk about what happened these last seven days: If you are an Xbox, you might be jealous that Chekken showed up to game 2 days this last week. Happy happy joy joy! We added 45 points of gamerscore. Points are good! Those 2 achievements were worth it I guess! Also, I think we can all agree that Chekken's favorite game last week was Saints Row: The Third. He played it on 2 of the days.
