A Moment of Silence for Tigerheart

I just learned from a person who knows him in real life that Tigerheart passed away yesterday. I have no details other than that.

Tiger was a great kid who was very bright and relentlessly cheery. He even kinda looked like a Tiger, which is something that seemed to amuse him. He was someone who would always go the extra mile to help. Outside of what he did on this project, you've probably seen him on tons of forums, helping people fix their issues and picking up add-ons that were abandoned by authors and needed fixing. Needless to say, he was instrumental in getting this UI back up and running after 2.0. He did all of this while being a full time student and holding a job. And if you knew him in-game, on Argent Dawn, you'd know exactly how great and nice a person he was. I've never even once seen him in a bad mood.

And he was only 22.

You'll be missed, Tiger.

There just are never the words when you hear about something like this ...

My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

I must admit, that is completely out of the blue. And he was just here the other day posting...moments like these really do leave you speechless.

I didn't every get to know him much except from his posts over on the Beta forum, but you could tell even from those that he was really a helpful and kind soul. You'll be missed, Tiger.

This is sad. I'm sorry. He was very constructive. I'm proud of him.

I don't have much else to say, i wish i go to know him better.



You never realize how much you take something for granted till they're gone. Thank you tigerheart.

Tiger seems like a great person, wish I could've had the chance to play on Argent Dawn with him, but to the people who do know him, don't let him be a memory alone, let his work speak for itself and the accomplishments he did make here, and from what everyone says, I think he'll be looking down on all of us WoW players helping us out in all we do

Prayers of the Light

May Tigerheart find everything he wishes and needs as he leaves this adventure for the next -- my family's deepest condolences for their loss.

What a blessing it was to have had Tigerheart around!

-- Mort, Lady Mort and all of Blooded Rose and Briar Rose on Vek'nilash

(Mazin, perhaps when 1.xx comes out, you can add a graf in the FAQ honoring his contributions? He is utterly irreplacible and has well-earned his fame in WoW history.)

Honor

Tigerheart from what I knew of him in these forums and on others was one of the most selfles people i have ever had the honor to talk to. As mazzle said he was NEVER in a bad mood, always had time for other people's problems, and always had a good answer for nearly everything.
His passing will sadden many people but it should not bring your heart low, because all you should do is remember all the amazing things he accomplished on and off the internet and WOW. I am only 25 myself and take life and do with it as much as i can, but to hear of someone so young being struck down still makes me wonder if I have done enough.
TigerHeart you were a true bearer of the light, may it shine for you as brightly now as it ever has for your essence shall be with us all and remembered through the people that loved and honoured you.
Good luck my friend, and may your journey be as sweet as your life.

What I knew about Tigerheart is what I learnt from these forums. He was a hard worker and an intelligent person too who always seemed cheery and ready to help. It's truly sad that such a promising young person has passed away.

May you rest in peace Tiger.

I don't want to believe it, but there's been no followup denying it -- it's not fair! I was only getting to know Tigerheart from his posts to this forum, then to have him suddenly taken away -- not fair! I know I can't miss him as much as people who really knew him will, but I'll be missing him anyway, because he reached out and influenced so many people through his work and play, myself included. Wherever you are now, Tigerheart, be at peace and know that you made a difference.

I didn't write the above, but I would assume that the second one is the home address and the first is the funeral home.

This is a very unfortunate thing to happen.. not only to his family but to the gaming community on the whole.

I send my deepest condolences to the family and friends. I lost my father this last October and I know its not going to be easy for you.


The Lord must have a need for him to call him back home at such a young age..
