Last week, January 23rd, 2014, youtuber Justin "JewWario" Carmical committed suicide...
I have to say, I didn't watch many of his videos. I wasn't a fan of Japanese games, so most of what I saw was through proxy channels, especially his appearances in Channel Awesome's anniversary movies and his Pokemon reviews with Suede and Linkara. And what I saw was a great, happy, kind, hilarious guy. He was weird, but that special kind of weird where you just want to meet and hang out with.
And frankly, while I didn't watch many of his videos, I looked up to him. He was what I want to be: a happy, upbeat, kind, gentle, awesome married geek doing what he's passionate about and loving it. And that's how I saw him. That's how a lot of us saw him. That's how we'll remember him.
Thanks for all the laughs, Justin. All the comedy, all the gags, and all the kindness you showed from your videos.
We'll all remember you... Sorry I didn't say this before, or appreciate your videos while you were there.
May you find rest in the arms of the Lord.
