    I wasn't sure which forum to post this in but seeing as how Shaun was attending Botcon and I have no way of knowing how to contact his room-mates, I thought this would be best. I last talked to Shaun on monday and he wasn't feeling too well, this morning I was shocked to see his obituary in the paper, he passed away suddenly on tuesday, he's been in and out of hospitals his whole life and has lived with numerous chronic ailments since he was born. It's really sad because he was such a big TF supporter and was really looking forward to going to Botcon and seeing the movie.

    If anyone knows who his room-mates are, please let them know :( 

    Rest in peace buddy :cry

    Fuck, I feel bad for always teasing the guy now. He really did enjoy himself on these boards and following the TFW2005 crew around at BotCon. He is one of those guys you will never forget.

    RIP Shaun_C

    I thought this had to be some sort of a twisted joke, but did some searching and saw the obit.

    This comes as a pretty big shock...I really don't even know what to say.

    I know TFW2005 and you guys meant a lot to him, he loved being a part of the boards and was so hyped up to go to Botcon, even though he wasn't feeling well he was still excited to see the movie and go on the Hasbro tour. :(

    Whaaa?

    I can't believe this is for real. Moreso, I don't want to believe that this is for real.

    This can't be real. It can't. :(  Are you certain it's the Shaun we know? Not someone with the same name? I mean, I don't think he ever mentioned that something was wrong with his right eye...But if it's real...Damn. RIP. :(  :(  :(

    I don't know?, when I talked to him he said he felt really tired and thought he might have something wrong with his kidneys, he was going to see the doctor the next day and was hoping it wasn't Diabetes. What's shocking is that he ate really healthy, worked out several times a week but was dealt a bad hand in terms of his health when he was born, having had hepatitis as a kid, vision problems and bad musculo-skeletal problems his whole life. :(
