Guardian down – Destiny clan pays tribute to member who passed away
The Dads of Destiny clan say their last farewell in a heart wrenching tribute video to clan member Joshua R. Stokell, who passed away on June 8.
Kotaku reported that Josh – TheSquashPhD to his clanmates – had Cystic Fibrosis, and studied the genetic disorder at UNC-Charlotte, researching possible cures. He was 36 years old.
His clanmates put together this video after a call to arms on reddit. More than 250 people posted on the Bungie forum and on reddit to offer their condolences and submit their video clips.
The gesture is a simple one, but demonstrates the bonds that can be forged by just hopping online to play a videogame.
