Sad news about Boutros

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately I'm here to share the sad news that Tom, better known as @Boutros around these parts, has passed away last Thursday. He fought a long battle against alcoholism which he unfortunately lost before even reaching his mid-40s. As he used to be an active member on these boards in the past and played online multiplayer with some of you, I thought I should inform you. The funeral will be held on Thursday in Heerhugowaard, Netherlands.

 

I've posted this in discussion, as this was the part of the forum he posted in most and where I figured most people knew him. If this is not the right place, please feel free to move the topic to a more appropriate area of the forum.

Sad news :( 

 

Addiction is a horrible thing and needs more support and less of a taboo around it.

That fucking sucks.

 

I'm fairly certain I played some old Xbox 360 games with him as I used to play a lot with the forum back then, they were great times.

 

That's no age to go, my sincere condolences. :(

I didn't really know him that well here, but it's always sad to hear of a forumite passing. Thanks for coming back to tell us, @Napole0n

Our paths never crossed but it's always bad news to hear a fellow forumite has passed :(

I am quite new to this forum and I don't think I ever interacted with the chap but thank you for posting that. Good to see a nice sense of community and compassion here.

Horrible news. As someone who has fought alcoholism for 20 years and seen it take too many people it’s terrible to hear about someone on here passing away because of it. My thoughts are with his family and friends
