In Memory of Adam Wilson - Page 2

post #11 of 295

evil jerry and I started the FB group a few months ago, and for a brief time while there was a FB group chat I did get the chance to chat with him, he was a really nice guy and taken way too young. I as well have had a hard time getting though my day today as this whole thing brings back memories of the loss of my brother, he died when he was 16 and I was 19, and now I am 39 and it's still difficult from time to time. This community of OCNers isn't just a bunch of random people, we are family, we care about each other, we help each other, weather it's a tech problem or a problem outside of OCN. I have made some pretty good friends here, this is my second home (ask my GF she will tell you tongue.gif) and if any of you are ever in the area of Newmarket ON send me a PM and we can have a coffee and chat about anything. Don't take anything for granted and don't make light of the little things because nothing in life is trivial. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

I met Adam on OCN at the end of July this year. We found out that we'd been living just down the street from each other after talking about going to the OCN Michigan event that happened this past weekend. Funny when he first messaged me he titled it "Dat 49418". Haha, I thought who is this guy and do I really want to meet him? But he ended up coming over for a drink. He brought some good rum, and taught me about fine drinking and we were friends from then on.

And I do hate to break so many of your hearts, but he had abandoned the hardcore emo look as of late lol. The reason: he couldn't find anywhere around here that could cut it right. So he just didn't cut it, and it was a mess hahaha.

It was so fun to finally have a friend near me that really understood our hobby obsession here. I know he felt the same way. He really has been a driving force and inspiration for me to keep building and modding. Always pushing me to be better, to do more. He could be very frustrating at times though, as I would save and save and buy some new gear and he would just end up getting the same for free to review; the little prick. tongue.gif He really was such a source of knowledge when it came to overclocking and computers. Just when I would think I knew what was going on he would have so much to add. I will miss messaging and joking with him all day about tech and modding and life. He was always so dependable.

Adam loathed driving everywhere. So he either walked or stole his neighbors bike. It would always make me laugh when he was on his way usually to the post office or something, he'd stop by my house and invite me along. Just to go for a ride then off he would go to home and his computers again. He was a very funny sort of guy.

Mostly though, as has been said, Adam loved his family and was a great father. I mean talk about someone that just loved to be a dad. One of the first things he ever said to me was you should have a kid their awesome! There are three children, two girls and a boy right now that are hurting in ways that we will never know or understand and my heart goes out to them most.

Of course he also loved his wife very much. We talked one time about he liked living in the UK more compared to Michigan . I said something along the lines of 'well why are you here then'? His answer was simple: love. He lived somewhere he didn't really care for because his wife made his life that much better. If we could all be that lucky.

I will never understand how the hell something like this just happens. How one can be so abruptly taken leaving only questions without answers. So many lives were left with holes in them when he passed. The only thing to be done is to live in ways that would make him proud. Laugh, joke, help others as often as we can, live passionately. That was the way Adam lived.

So here is to you one more time Adam, you lived and loved, perhaps better than most, and we will never forget you.

I am very sorry to learn of your loss. Even though I did not know Adam, I am saddened by the news, he seemed like a great guy from what you guys described. It`s always sad to see someone so young pass away, especially a good-hearted one. I would like to express my sincere condolences to his family and friends.

A lot to take in num1son. I have to admit i'm kinda jealous that you got to meet adam in person. I can't see a person on here that I would want to meet more then adam. Thank you for sharing that.

Draven the facebook group was the greatest idea ever and some awesome times there and on OCN. I would of never really given adam a chance if I had not gotten to know him through the FB group though. As for losing your brother at such a young age, I know that takes a toll on you, I miss my father I lost a few years ago so bad still to this day. That's why Operation Freedom has a tribute to him so I am always thinking about him.

My Phantom 410 that I have had collecting dust will now officially become my next project. The build will not have any memorials or anything but this build will be inspired by Adam. I am proudly naming it Erakith.

Ok now off to my random thought process about me and adam.

Now honestly when I saw Adam on OCN he had the stupidest hair i've ever seen. I knew this because his Avatar at the time was him with his emo style hair. To be honest though I didn't hate the hair I just loved to give adam hell about it. I would insult him every other night about it and then he would say something completely random and bash me back. Maybe it's sad I found so much fun insulting him and having him haze me back for being a Filipino.

Oh and then the was the night I decided to get on Camera and have a Q&A of randomness. I don't even know why I got on cam but I talked about random stuff and there was Adam talking trash about me. I even ate ice cream on cam and adam would threaten me for the next two months with Screen Caps he took of me eatting it. I never saw those pictures as I am sure he was waiting for the right moment. All and all I had a bunch of fun and stupid times with him.

I never knew Adam like many of you guys did but I really wish I knew him better. He sounds like a very good person, and I got to know about his love for his children and wife when I chatted with him on the Phantom users group chat. He was a great husband and a father and I have his family in my prayers. Rest in peace Adam, I didn't know you well but you're someone I will remember my whole life.

I just heard about Adams passing. It took me a minute to realize who he was but then I remembered Jerry live stream and all the laughs and fun we had. I wish I could have known Adam better and I honestly can't believe he has passed.

Rest in peace where ever you might be.
