For me seeing Woody go is so sad. He passed when i was underway. He was my best friend. He look out for my wife when I was on deployment. We built a clan together on Warframe. He was so kind and the best person to talk to. I wish he could have keeped his promise right before I went underway. He said "I can't wait to talk to you when you come back." You were amazing. To everyone that was a friend and family member my heart goes out to you as well.

I used to play video games with him and talk to him a lot online. Ive known him since I was about fourteen. He grew to be like a good friend, even a father figure sometimes since I never had one in my life. His kind hearted personality even reached me, all the way in the Netherlands. It hurt to hear of his passing, and my condolences and prayers go out to his family and loved ones.

Hope youre well up there old timer.

I wasn't aware of this, it truely breaks my heart knowing I lost my closest friend right before I could move to NC and I will truely miss you big brother. I played Warframe on a online platform with Woody for almost 5 years and during that time Woody would have private conversations with me on the side always being like a big brother to me. I know most of his family probaly has no clue who I am but, Rgun(Woody) had an extremely big impact on my life and I will forever miss you buddy my heart is broken into pieces and I cant stop sobbing. Please play warframe with me 1 day again Rgun when I get to where you are.

I knew Woody as "Rgun" in a game we played together online. Over the last few years, he spent many of his evenings talking to me and a group of other friends . We just found out that he passed away. He was a wonderful, kind person, and I will miss him so much.
