CougRon's brother just messaged me to let me know he passed. (Off-Topic)

So I don't know how appropriate this post is, but I know that Coug's got plenty of friends here who haven't heard from him in a bit, so I wanted to pass his message along.

His funeral is tomorrow up in Pasco, WA., and here's a link to his tribute page if anyone wishes to leave some love:

Ronald Kinion- April 17, 1974 - July 24, 2022

Godspeed, Coug. We may not have agreed on much politically, but you were a solid dude, and I loved having you around; I'll miss staying awake at even more ridiculous hours than I usually do for a run. We'll tackle that Dungeon in the next one!

I only played with him a handful of times but he was a good guy to play a game with. He has given me the gift of fond and silly memories and for that I’m grateful.

That's unfortunate to hear. I'm glad I had the chance to play with him recently (~2 months ago). We were able to complete a few fun seasonal activities, and then we attempted Master Vox Obscura. We couldn't quite pull it off, but we tried really hard, and that's what counts.

RIP, friend.

Gonna miss you, Coug. I loved your willingness to try anything, regardless of its difficulty.

Thanks for the heads-up, Korny.

That's Just Heartbreaking.

He always had the most hospitable of moods, even when faced with more and more terrible news. Coug absolutely had the perseverance and determination that I wish I did during our recoveries.

We climbed the Mountaintop together in Destiny 1. No one else. Just him and me. It was one of my fondest memories. That, and helping him get Xenophage.

I'm so saddened by this loss, knowing that he was doing his best to beat the hospital and find a place that could take him for therapy.

I used to pounce on him all the time in parties since he always—always—seemed to eat with his mic unmuted, like "Dude! We can hear you!".

Right now I'd give anything to hear that crunching in my ear...


I've got your res, Ron. We've a few more mountains to climb. 😇

I don't have anything poetic to say. CougRon was one of the nicest people I met here and that's really saying something. No doubt he'll be missed by many.

Never did play much with Coug, but I do remember some of his posts here. Hope he rests in peace.

Rest well, sir.

Didn't know him well, and I regret that. Only played a handful of times, yet he was still eager to help me with the D1 achievements I was going for. Seems I missed out on getting to know one of the good ones.
