I didn't know him. but it is sad to hear of someone passing away. I feel like this will become more inevitable as much of our community is middle-aged or approaching middle age.

That's sad news! I remember him, but I didn't know him well.

 

Condolences to Deadnail's friends and family.

Damn, that's unfortunate. My condolences.

 

The name sounds vaguely familiar. Nonetheless, I get sad every time a fellow Doomer joins the big LAN party in the sky.

I feel like that name rings a bell, from when I used to lurk DW years and years ago, but I can't be sure. Sad news all the same.

Damn, I was already not having a good day and now this... :(

 

I am not familiar with Deadnail. I am trying to look him up, but so far I have not found much.

I never knew him, but I remember him.. That's tragic, I'm so sorry to his friends and family..

 

I don't mean to pry, but assuming it isn't private info, was any cause of death given?

 

EDIT: I was searching for him and this old funny thread showed up, its clear the community back then loved the guy..

 

Hah, I've still been here, just not logged onto this website arguing about the -file command or the billions of fine software choices for Lunix with all of you jackasses.

LOL. Man just made me laugh my ass off from beyond the grave.. Sounds like he had DW pegged a solid 20 years ago.. :)

 

Rest in Peace, man.

I'll keep this short as few are left who knew him but Josh was my friend. I'd even consider him a very close friend. We bonded over music and memes and I could always rely on him being around if I needed to vent, or laugh, or just shoot the shit. I knew of him from the old days of the forum and connected during my time on a small, private forum where other Doomers would hang out. Over time that place dwindled but Josh stayed on, making blogs that were often funny, sometimes tragic, but mostly a litany of his thoughts and feelings. Though everyone moved on we stayed in contact and shared many things, sometimes just talking late into the night. I wouldn't be person I am now without him. I love you man, and I'll miss you for the rest of my life. I can only say be good to each other, there's so little time we have.

 

Indeed. I did wonder why he disappeared from that forum. I will be keeping it around for as long as I can, should anyone want to use it look back on old times.

 

Very sad news, he will be missed. My sympathies to you Use and anyone else who was close to him. I was not super close to him, but always respected him. I can only hope he has the peace now that life seemed to deprive him of so often.

Indeed. He was a sharp guy and very funny.

I'll have to admit that I wasn't aware of this person beforehand, but rest in peace, always sad to hear of members passing in any community.

That's a real shame. I do remember him, I didn't realize it had been that long since he had been gone, although I don't remember a whole lot about him. But as soon as I saw that name, I felt bad, so he must've had a positive impact on me at some point.

You know what, I vaguely recall that thread. Especially "fuckcheese".

I'm very sorry to hear this. I've encountered his name quite a bit browsing through old threads. I remember that at first I thought "Deadnail" and "dn (darknation)" were the same person. Turns out they're not really similar at all.

 

Thank you for your service, Deadnail.

My deepest condolences. I admit I never really encountered Deadnail at all, not even when browsing older posts here, but a person's loss of life is always a sad thing.

I stayed in contact with him for years after he left the forums, and he was a sort of friend of mine for a while. He used to dm me on AIM or Steam or whatever and rant at me about whatever was on his mind. Sadly last time I talked to him was in 2016 when we had a disagreement over Trump and he never messaged me again after that.

Hoping this isn't true, but RIP if it is.

Oh! Ok, now I remember Deadnail. That avatar he uses is what I remember him for. Daaamn, that old thread truly is a blast from the past. Just seeing a lot of those old names brings back memories.

Out of many who've come to this site, he was indeed one of the most legendary members of the Doomworld community. May he rest in peace.
