Just checked back in after almost 4 years to see how the community's doing and this is what I see first :( I used to get so intimidated by him whenever we were in the chat room at same time, seeing that he was an admin. But then he'd always make me feel that I was welcome and that I could talk to him freely. May you rest in peace, Des.

I'm also one of the members who have not been very active here in theO but I still log in from time to time since I cannot fully say goodbye to this site which is my favorite place when I was younger. I have a lot of things to do now but I can truly say that I'm happy this site is still well. It's sad to see this news that a fellow otaku passed away at such a young age. May his soul rest in peace. I know that he loved this site and the people here.

I haven't been able to visit the site for the past few months and to read this news upon my return, it really breaks my heart. Des was a great friend, mentor to everyone who knew him. I still remember him being in the Chat room lobby and greeting new members. I remember members being scared of interacting with mods and I thought why and went and talked to Des for the first time and had a blast. I can't believe its already been 8 years since then. His presence will be greatly missed and his brb tea liner. May his soul rest in peace. It is still hard to believe he is gone.

Like many, I was one of the members who found this community as an escape in my younger years. Desbreko was one of the members I came to know over time through his screenshots in chat. We didn't interact a lot but I recall him as a calm guy who would sometimes let loose and show this other side, quirky, witty and so full of life. Back then, he seemed sort of a wizard to me with his ability to come up with a screencap relevant to the ongoing conversation. Once we even tried to throw random phrases to test him. He proved to be a wizard.
A few months back, he crossed my mind out of the blue. It has been long since I drifted away from the community here and I didn't know about his ongoing battle with cancer. Today, being a lazy day at work, I opened this site only to find his obituary. Really sad to hear the news.
Even though it's been years and I never kept up with any of you, a chunk of my life where I really needed the camaraderie was fulfilled by the community here. And Des was one of the members who made this community unique. RIP

It sucks to check in after the past couple of months to see the news, I always remember going into the chatroom at 3:00 in the morning and he'd be in there (away of course) but I'd sit in there and type stuff anyways. I feel bad that I haven't visited in some time, because you lose touch with the people that you have alot of interests in, and when you decide to reconnect, its already too late. I've learned that your legacy begins with the people you've touched, and I can only hope that mine could be as widespread as his.
Thanks for the memories :)

Suddenly I'm experiencing memories I forgot I even harbored.
Farewell, friend. You brought me many smiles.

I never had the opportunity to get to know him, but I do remember seeing his name around the site frequently enough. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family during this difficult time.

I just saw Beth's fb post and spoke to you, Adam, about this.. crazy world we live in. I always remember Des ini the chat and me and Michi would always makes jokes with him. I never knew him further than that but it's still so sad to see part of my theO family gone. I hope everyone in his family and here are doing ok with everything...

That is really sad news. I'm in shock, honestly. I never knew Des personally, but his name has been tossed around so much on the main page that practically everyone here has at least heard of him. I wish that I could have interacted with him at least once.
Enough about me, though. May all those who mourn him find comfort in fond memories of him.
Call it karma. Call it luck. Me, I just don't give a... BOUNCE!

I received an email about Des passing and all I can remember right now are his Zelda videos he posted on YouTube. I didn't know much of him, but from what he posted, he was and will forever be a cool guy. Rest in Peace.

While I never interacted with Desbreko, it is sad to hear that an important member in this website's history is no longer with us. That member maybe gone from this realm forever, but not the memory of the deceased member himself.

He will certainly be missed. I hadn't spoken to him in quite a while but I remember our interactions over the years fondly.

Thanks for posting Adam. Like everyone else, I have nothing but good things to say about Desbreko.
He will be missed by the community, that's for sure.

Thank you so much for doing this.
I first met Des in chat when it first started up. We shared a lot in common. He was a good person, friendly and kind-hearted and always knew how to make me smile when I was feeling low because of his great sense of humour. (Even if he didn't realise it.) I followed him on Twitter since TheO got quiet and chat wasn't used as much, but his online presence over the last while dwindled and I was not able to speak to him as before. I am going to miss him greatly.
