    Don't know if anyone knows this, but I was informed today that the man who played the "tars tarkhas" and "un'cas" toons in EvE (John Cook), Has passed away from a heart attack at age 52.
    Don't know how many of you knew him, but he was a great guy and an awesome PvP'er, I think last time we talked he was on the way to becoming number 1 for kills. He also flew a maelstrom that had YahWeh's own Alpha Strike(tm).
    As a measure of the man, his last, thoughtful, words to me were: "You have a sec status of +5??? You giant tit of a carebear!, get your ass back into 0.0!" (true story).
    I used to spend a lot of time mission whoring with him before oldr corp started,I took it as a compliment when a man of that skill level said that I was the best drake pilot he'd ever flown with.
    Fly safe, and farewell, Tars.

    I flew with Un'cas in a couple of Corps in EVE, he was a great player and a great person in general.

    Dedication to the great man... definitely needs more cowbell

    The character un'cas sounds familiar, but I most likely never ran into him. In any case, I'm thinking of his family today. 52 is way too young for anyone to leave this world. :(

    I do recognise the names, think I only talked with him briefly.

    Sad news indeed.
