RIP Joltz/Bruinor

For those of you that have not heard, Joltz/Bruinor died today in a workplace accident.  He will be sorely missed, and by me the most.  He was a good friend, a good guildmate and my heart hurts.

Flecher

I am very sadden by Bruinor passing
I got to get to know him in game and Discord
It was a lot of fun and he left a finger print on my heart

Majique

I considered Daryl/Jolts/Bruinor one of my very best of EQ friends.  Great person.  My heart truly hurts.  He will be missed.

Chrysalis

I sit here and wonder if I was as good of a person to Bru/Joltz as he was to me. I hope in his next life  he finds good friends like he was to us. Game on Bro!!...

Decidra

I am beyond heartbroken, when Tay told me last night I was stunned. He was a great friend to alot of us. I will always treasure the times I spent with him as Joltz, he was always my healer in raids and could always put a smile on my face, by saying something nice or more oft than not laughing with me at the newest "window licker". I am in tears, my heart goes out to his family and friends and to all of us...we lost a great person and he will be missed.

/agree Decidra.  My Kleenex bill is higher than it's been in some time.  This hurts. A lot.

I've known Joltz for almost as long as EQ has been around.  He and his wife (she played "Yandadara") were an absolutely amazing healing duo that kept our groups alive against sometimes crazy odds.  She's not played in quite some time, but she's a sweetheart that needs your thoughts and prayers right about now.  When he played Joltz and you were in his group, you could rest assured that you were likely to be in the last group standing.

I've known Daryl in real life for about almost as long.  TeamSpeak and Ventrilo at first, but about 10 years ago I was in his area on an errand and he and his wife met us for dinner.  It was jarring at first:  In the game, Joltz was a halfling and Yandadara was a High Elf, but in real life Daryl was a bear of a man and his wife the smaller one.  That took a bit of getting used to...  We met again a few years later at a cabin that Dilani owns in Oregon and spent several days together there.  He put his real-life skills to use there repairing a water pump and the cabin's electrical systems and just in general making things work. (I worked on the toilet, and over - yes, over - the cabin's cesspool.  Don't ask...)  While he was used to working with immense high-volume pumps and high-voltage electrical systems he was perfectly content to work on the ancient and primitive versions that were in use at that cabin, and we enjoyed our time there immensely.  That time and those memories are now precious to me.

Never forget, folks:  There are actual real-life PEOPLE behind the characters in the game.  I've met some of them and have talked to many more, and one thing I've learned is that the character is usually nothing more than a thin mask. Great characters in the game are usually played by great people in real life.  Joltz/Bruinor was no exception.  I'm going to miss Bruinor, but I mourn Daryl.

"When you say goodbye to a friend, assume that one of you is going to die before you ever get to see one another again. If you want to leave something unsaid, fine...but be prepared to leave it unsaid forever." (Walter Slovotsky, via Joel Rosenberg)

Goodbye, Bruinor.  Rest in peace, Daryl.

This is a lightly-edited and reorganized capture of Bruinor's memorial service from Friday evening.  I've kept most of the guild chat, edited out most of the emotes, and grouped peoples' multi-line messages.

Once again, thanks to Raivene for setting this up.  I'm reminded how memorials aren't for the dead, but for those that are left behind.  Participating in this hurt and helped at the same time.

"Title of your sex tape."  Last Friday he said, "This would be a lot harder if I was in kobold illusion. " and I said, Title of your sex tape and then I started to laugh. I laughed so hard I peed a bit'

[Fri Oct 02 18:05:24 2020] Anok tells the guild, 'I will always remember Dayrl/Joltz/Bruinor, not as someone who only loved this game but made it special for others.  As you all know I don't talk/write much but it is an import part of the game for me to hear/read the fun banter back and forth, Dayrl helped make this game special to me, I will miss him.'

Sorry I missed it. I figured with the starting time in the motd set at 8 eastern, I'd be too late  :(
