On Saturday November 28th at the young age of 33 a teammate, guildmate, and a great friend of mine passed away. I knew him as Killdawabbit, but he was better known as Phumbaba on the Cenarius realm. He was a member of ShadowbornŰ as well as Awry. On Sunday November 29th many of us gathered to celebrate his life at the Shrine of the Fallen Warrior in the Barrens.
Phumbaba you've left us far too soon. The void that many of us feel in our hearts will never be filled. In your wake you've touched many of us and in your passing many of us have been brought together. You will forever live on in our hearts. Lok'tar Ogar!
I first met Phumbaba on his hunter, Killdawabbit. Him, his brother and I formed a 3v3 arena team during the last season of TBC. Our hunter, priest, rogue team did not get much higher than a 1600 rating, but we had a blast.
Gagroll: ive known the guy since he was level 58. he would do anything for anyone. even when he was burned out.
Dkbukuso: i'll keep tanking for you PHUMBABA!
Drfeelgood says a prayer for Phumbaba
Smiterbomb: R.I.P Old Friend.. U will be missed by all we Love you man
Elessdee: life is short, so live it to the fullest and surround yourself with people who care for you.
Trindario: Phum was an awesome guy, raided with him a few times and he was always kind and helpful. It a very sad day when someone so young passes away. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
I first met Phumbaba in Shadowborne and, he was a really great guy. We ran the daily together some times, and then he moved on to ToC so we couldnt hang out anymore. So, now, im depressed that he passed away...and if we keep this guild together, i think we would all have some phumbaba in our hearts...now that sounds cheesy but its true.
D°omdaddy knows Phumbaba just got T10 in the after life.
Sonambulo: he was always wiling to help and i sure that is a direct reflection of the man behind the avatar
Zellular: I didn't know Phumbaba as well as alot of the people here but we raid on many occassions and talked a good amount, he was my arena partner and a dear friend he truelly will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family
FßtÓl agrees Phumbaba is in the hands of our Gods
Synkradimus: I didnt know him very well, but i ran a few dungeons with him. He was always a great guy, and I could always count on him.
Grunkk knows Phum is tanking somewhere in the afterlife.
Grunkk: Together we will remember him and be stronger for having known him.
D°omdaddy yells: We're always here for you Phumbaba! We'll always miss you!
Ake: as a promise to phumbaba... ill finally level my mage and stop slacking
