Default Old Timer has passed

Since, at one time, this forum was a big part of our lives, one of my personal and online best friends "Oscar" has died June 5th. For all the WCFD and other ancient members who remember him, say a little Adios and God Speed for him.

Rest peacefully, Oscar. I often saw your name pop up here in the past and it is always unfortunate to see great, genuine people go.

It was an honor to know you, even if only for a short time. Rest in peace, Oscar.

I do remember his name from old posts, if not him personally. RIP.

I ask LD if we can do something more than just a thread.

EDIT: Contacted Alen, and SS4 might have something for Oscar.

Aww man, that is terrible news I played with Oscar and others for many hours when DwK released the Insamnity mod for SS2. So many hours spend messing around in that mod, some of the fonder memories I have had with Serious Sam. He was always a great spirit, and so sad to hear that he has passed on. My deepest condolences

As a member of the WCFD I had the great privilege of getting to know Oscar. We all spent a lot of time chatting together and gaming together. He was a great guy with a big heart. And to you sir I offer my finest farewell and godspeed! May your next adventure be even better. Goodbye old friend.

This is part of the email Barbara (Bobbi), his wife sent me. It will tell you about the kind of man Oscar (Jerry) was. He was an organ donor and this is about his legacy. The first donor recipient was a child burn victim. Please excuse some of the wording, as Bobbi is still under emotional duress :

"They told me he could donate organs and I did. The dr called me after they did the harvesting and said the liver,kidneys were sent off and teams waiting, they were very hopeful. 50 people were going to be
helped with skin tissue. I sure hope that I can meet the recipents if it is sucessful. With Jer's 2 boys and our daughter and the grandkids, family & friends, I will get thru this. It's so hard to believe he is gone, guess it will sink in but for now, I'm numb.




They flew this flag before it got dark. It all happened at the last minute as they never did this so had to
go thru security etc. So Jerry is starting a tradition and every time there is a donor they will fly this flag. The Kaiser Hospital
is only a year and half old so Jer was the first donor.
Friends of ours were telling me about a flag that was flown in San Francisco when a young man died (I did know him)
and they did this so I asked if they could do it.
Needless to say we were all cry babies and there was a beautiful sunset and so windy for the flag to fly.
The harvesting started at 4:30 a.m and is when we all left.
The Cornea Specalist (Joe Murrey) flew in from Pensacola, FL and he was the one telling us
all what was going to happen and was overseeing everything that took place.
He called me at home about 8:30 a.m. and said the Liver & Kidney's were taken to the various hospitals and teams were
waiting. They were all local recipents but he couldn't give us any details. We will hear in about a month if it happened.
They were very hopeful that the transplants would take place and I would like you all to pray that it did take place. he said 50 people will benefit from the tissue. I asked if they could play motown/rhythm & blues music as they operated and they did. I left a long note telling the recipients about Jerry.
I sure hope I can meet the people if the transplant is successful."

I could not get the pics of the flag raising to transfer. I just wanted some of his old gaming buds to kind of know the man they only knew through the internet. I had the privilege of knowing him and Bobbi personally (albeit long distance) and I'm proud and honored to have called him a friend and mentor. I don't say this about very many; Oscar, you were a man I was proud to ride the river with!

Oscar was one of the best people I've ever known. I was fortunate enough to finally meet him last year when I was attending the GDC, something I had wanted to do for over 10 years. He was with me through all of my Sam mods, and along the way became a very close friend. Without his help and support I wouldn't be where I am today.

He will be dearly missed. RIP old friend, Godspeed...

I'm late to say this, and I didn't know him despite being around when Insamity was released.
But I give my respects, he sounds like a one in a million of a man, and will be missed by those who loved him...

I've just now noticed this thread, but it's never too late to pay your respects.

I didn't know Oscar personally, but I remember him from before. It wasn't hard to see he was a good guy, and he will be missed. Rest in peace.
