Thread: RIP Lost53

  1. #1

    Default RIP Lost53

    Received a PM not long ago that Lost53/James is no longer with us after a tragic accident. His funeral will be held this Friday. PM came from one of his friends. I didn't know him at all but I think every loss is deeply felt in the sz community. Thanks to this website I've met quite a few interesting posters and some I have had the good fortune to call good friends. RIP Lost53, sorry I will have never met you.

    Wow, incredibly sad news. Me and James exchanged many emails throughout the years. He was always helpful and seemed very humble and down to earth. My deepest condolences goes out to his family and loved ones. RIP, you will be dearly missed!

    I really think the should be a ban from posting anywhere else with nitpicking first world problems posts for some hours. This is fucking sad news. The world keeps spinning, sure, but let's show some sincerity. Such a nice and polite guy, what a loss. Rest in peace, wherever you are, James.

    This is awful. We pm:ed only a couple of weeks ago. He seemed to be a real gentleman. What a loss.

    After dealing with some shitty problems over the last couple of weeks, and finally resolving some issues and feeling better, I am now deeply saddened again.

    He was indeed one of the nicest guys on the forums here and a loyal Customer of mine.
    Condolences to his family and loved ones................this is a Sad day for his family, friends and the community

    Holy shit. This sucks.

    I hung out with him once when I was living in San Diego. I even bought a Julius gun holster moto off him which I wore like 2 days ago. How eerie....

    I could tell he had very good character from his posts. May you rest in peace, Lost.

    Wow..such a loss! He helped me out with something I wanted for a long time. Very generous guy, invited me to stop by at his studio whenever I was around. I will now never have the chance to meet him... Rest in peace JP

    I dreaded clicking on this.

    Despite not knowing a member personally, some people just become fixtures here and unwelcome news like this makes an impact. Each loss diminishes us a little bit, and I hate
    how that feels.

    RIP, James.
