I cannot believe what I'm seeing!!
At first I thought it was some bad joke until I saw his sisters post and I remained speechless.
I can't believe that the cancer took him in only 8 months ... WTH??
OCN lost, IMHO, the best member it ever had...
My condolences go to his family, God bless his soul and may he rest in piece in Heaven.

May you rest in peace, Syrillian friend! Death has severed the tie that united us in this life.

I am saddened for this far too early loss, and it's effects on those who had a stronger connection. For it has been my experience that it is this strength of connection which defines the strength of the pain. I have felt the pain of close family loss as well.

I wish all comfort in their journey through loss.

People, even if its a few dollars, please donate in his honor. He may not be with us, but I am sure in spirit he would appreciate it. I didn't even know him but I've always checked here once a week for updates and I've donated. I too, had a friend who died from cancer and was also highly regarded at teamxbox.com.

I'd like to chime in briefly with something that may lift your spirits and show you what kind of man he was.

In my talks with Syrillian in private throughout the duration of his heroic fight, he was always thankful to not only me for getting things going in his honor, but to this entire 150,000+ member-strong community for the overwhelming support for him and the fight.

He was humbled when he learned of the donation to the American Cancer Society. Yes - the legend himself, HUMBLED.

He loved this community as much as we love him and he always was grateful for our sheer presence. The last words he said to me before I got the news were this:

As for life returning to "normal", I honestly don't think that it ever will, I just hope to maybe ride the Ducati a few more times before I sell it. We shall see.

anyhooo..... my best to you and your endeavors, I will be watching from the sidelines and rootin'n for ya.

Carpe Diem!

R.I.P. Syrillian, May your story inspire the many who read it. May OCN ever support you even now as you have finished your fight. I for one have known Syrillian during my entire time here, wouldn't have imagined the community without him, guess I have to now.

Smash, what you wrote there was both inspirational, and heart breaking. May we all take note, No Matter how bad anyone thinks they have it, may they take a read through this thread...to have his life taken when he was so young, and to think that he relied on us....so many of us relied on him.

I can't even begin to explain the pain we feel for your loss Syrillian.

Your kindness and wisdom have been showcased within the Overclocking / Case Modding community for years - and more recently, your strength and courage has inspired us all. It has put so much into perspective.

Anyone who has come across your contributions has been left with something greater than which they came with.

It has been such a blessing to have you part of Overclock.net my friend. You are loved and missed deeply. You will always be remembered. I promise you this.

Rest in peace Syrillian.

Libby, please accept our heartfelt condolences. Your Brother was a very special man to us - and I am sure everyone he knew outside of the Overclocking space. If there is EVER anything we can do to directly support you or the rest of your family, we are always here.
