Just read this, we never got a chance meet face to face, but had transactions, discussions in the past, just unbelievable, a cool guy. RIP.

Actually I lived in San Jose where he was from. And I remember the transaction well. I sold him Parodius for the PC Engine back in 2004 when both of us were new members. We thought that since he lived in San Jose we could meet up face to face for the deal. But he was hesitant and said that his mom would probably not approve. It was only a little later that I realized the condition he was in and that his mother was pretty much in control of the decisions in his life. For some reason I thought that his mother was very controlling with him but maybe she just wanted to protect him. All I know is that he loved playing and collecting games. And he could not work but only rely on the money he got from disability or money from his parents. But the passion he had for gaming was immense and he was so kind. He never sweared or showed anger.

RIP Boog
