I just joined this forum to share some sad news with the Overclockers Community. I am a close personal friend of Ryan Bredin who's username on here is Verran. I know he spent alot of time on these boards so I thought I should join on to pass along the word.

Ryan passed away last night after a hard fought battle with cancer. He will be missed by many but he can now rest in peace.

Holy crap! Are you serious?! I knew he had health issues, but man, that really sucks. He and I frequently had each others backs in arguments. lol

RIP, Ryan!

That is horrible, I don't even know what to say.


As others have said I knew he was having health issues but I didn't realize he was that ill, I guess cancer can be completely unpredictable.
:(


R.I.P Ryan you will be sorely missed...

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day
