Ryan Bredin (1981 - 2009), Rest in Peace

Category: OCC News
Posted: 06:12PM

It is a very sad day here at Overclockers Club as one our long time staff members, Ryan Bredin, aka Verran, passed away last night after battling cancer for many years. Ryan was 28 years old. Ryan had served on the OCC staff for several years, first as a moderator and then as Senior Moderator. Ryan used his calm demeanor and good reasoning skills to keep the forums running smoothly and he loved a good discussion and could always be counted on to contribute his reasoned voice and opinion. Ryan is survived by his wife Kristin. There will be a Celebration of Life in Ryan's honor after the first of the year and we will let you know the details when they become available. In the mean time, please take a moment to remember Ryan in the forum thread. Goodbye to our friend Verran, you will be sorely missed around here.

He will be sorely missed. Way too young for anyone to go, especially such a great guy like Ryan. I know he had been battling cancer for awhile now, so hopefully he's finally at peace.

I just saw this today and am saddened by his passing. However, I am a firm believer in the afterlife and I will not say goodbye to our dear friend, but merely farewell. God be with you til we meet again, Ryan.

It feels as though an integral part of the forums and the staff team is missing without him. He gave such a lot to the site during his time here and to say that he will be missed is a gross understatement.
