I have been friends with Julius for a long time, and when he went silent for a week I did a search and found out he died of complications from a stroke.
He was an amazing person, and super down to earth for someone with such a stellar collection.

Rest In Peace old friend.

His sister set up a go fund me for his funeral

Is it just me or are people passing away from strokes a lot younger than usual?

Condolences to his family and those who knew him.

R.I.P.

I'm trying to understand the Go Fund Me as he bought 5x of everything and acted like some rich guy. Perhaps amassed debt.

RIP, man. He wasn't afraid to flaunt his cash, for sure, but you could tell he had a deep passion for the hobby and knew his stuff when it came to it.

fuck anybody talking about-‘why a go fund me?’

J may have been well off, but who knows what his sister does for a living.

Not my business.

If there is a go-fund-me in a time of need, that’s all I need to hear.

What is she supposed to do? FB marketplace his stuff in time for a funeral?

Godspeed you, Julius.

Very sad to hear about his passing. I definitely did birthday threads for him (August 4) in the past. My deepest condolences to his family and friends :(

Damn, such sad news. I'll be honest, I day dreamed a couple of times about living where he lived and having the cash to throw down on toys like he did.

I hope he had a happy life. I hope you all do.

Cool your tits.

His online persona and perception was different than his real life. For most of us here, even for 10+ years we don't know everyone inperson or their personal life. Only what they share online. The GFM comment wasn't ill will towards the family or SL. No one deserves to die that young.

He was an extremely avid collector and usually bought more than 1 of everything he was interested in and well known for it.

Perhaps your "fuck anybody" statement should be focused on folks that capitalized on NG members deaths in the past? I'm not referring to ppl that bought items off the family cause they needed the money either. Ppl that legitimately fucked over the family.

I also donated anon before you even posted. Done the same for past deceased members and donated hundreds worth of arcade/collected items for a member I knew personally before this forum existed and on here for his family leaving children behind.
