Today I learned that my old friend Stromm passed away in a noncombat incident while serving as an intelligence analyst in Qatar for the USAF.
I haven’t had much contact with Stromm (or Jason if you like) in the past 10 years or so, but it still saddens me to no end that an old gamer buddy is no longer with us.
Stromm was a fixer in AO, but not just any fixer, he was the benchmark for all other fixers on Rk1.
When I first started out pvping, I’d always hear about him, like some mythical creature capable of performing miracles.
I was lucky enough to be an active fixer in 2005, the year Stromm returned to AO.
He was a fun person to have at your side while gaming, with his cool demeanor, infectious laugh and never ending source of AO stories, you always knew that when he signed onto the voice-chat server it would be a great day.
Stromm was not only a great fixer, he was also a great leader and good luck charm for clan in both NW and Tarasque raids.
Jason spoke on multiple occasions about his life goals, and even though he’s gone, I’m happy that he reached those goals and got to serve his country.
For anyone with stories to share of Stromm (both good and bad), I’m sure that he would appreciate it.
