Fallen Rebels




  • In Memorial – Christian Richards

    Christian T. Richards “Chris_Agony” – Echo Base Oct. 11, 1978 – July 19, 2011 “Chris was a tremendously giving person – to his family, friends, and to the Legions (both 501st and Rebel respectfully). In July 2011, Chris passed quite suddenly. I never met him personally nor trooped with him, but his humor and exploits in Western PA are legendary. All of Garrison Carida and Echo Base mourn his passing. R-I-P, Chris.”  – Tim Levan, BCO – Echo Base Report Content Issue: * Blank Page Invalid Contents Broken Links Other Your Name: * Details: * Submit...

    In Memorial – Nick Ring

    Nick Ring May 9 1986 – July 5 2008 Nick’s death came unexpectedly following an unforeseen complication after elective surgery. He was a very active member of the 501st and a huge Star Wars fan. He had boundless energy when it came to trooping and was always willing to go to any event he could attend. His skill at Star Wars Trivial Pursuit was legendary. In addition to his love of Star Wars he was a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000, which easily reflected his own sense of humor. He also loved music, especially Pink Floyd, but his musical tastes covered the whole range from classic rock to modern electronica.

    In Memorial – Joe Price

    Joe “vampyregodz” Price – Ra Kura Base Joe “vampyregodz” Price, beloved husband of Sheila “Mara Pricestar” Price, passed away March 6, 2008. Joe was loved dearly by members of Ra Kura Base and the Florida Garrison of the 501st. He was loved so very much by everyone. Joe had been having several health issues for some time but was a true fighter and go getter. He always arranged and done many charity events despite his own health. He exemplified the true meaning of a trooper. At times he had to attend events by means of his powered scooter, just to do whatever it took to participate at events. In 2007, he even participated in SWW by means of his scooter. The man was truly admirable. Report Content Issue: * Blank Page Invalid Contents Broken Links Other Your Name: * Details: * Submit...

    In Memorial – Justin Johnstone

    Justin “CrossScar” Johnstone  – Corellian Base May 16, 1981 –  January 23, 2008 Justin “CrossScar” Johnston lost his lifelong fight with Cystic Fibrosis on January 23, 2008. A beloved friend and member of the Corellian Base and the Alabama Star Wars Syndicate, Justin was also a talented photographer. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. A very close friend of Justin’s, Angela “AlabamaAmidala” Harris, wrote the following:  “Justin was at peace when he passed away; he had recently been battling an infection and just couldn’t keep fighting anymore. He spent most of his life fighting Cystic Fibrosis, and now I am sure he felt completed or he would not have given up his fight. I remember a conversation Justin and I had a long time ago, I asked him what he wanted to be remembered for most. He said he just wanted to be remembered. I of course told him it was insane that anyone he had touched in his life would ever forget him. I can only describe Justin as he described himself, a phoenixtear. He always put others before himself, and never complained about the hardships that he faced in life. He wanted those around him to be happy and well, and would go out of his way to make a friend laugh if they were having a bad day. His presence will surely be missed, not just by me and his family but by so many who he has touched. But I know his spirit lives on, and I am glad that he is no longer here suffering day to day just to make it by. It was his time to go; his body was just not able to contain his wonderful soul.”   Justin was known by many through his photography, and he was the default photographer for LeiasMetalBikini. Justin’s friends and family will keep his Web site up and running so others may enjoy his artwork: www.phoenixtear.com.   Report Content Issue: * Blank Page Invalid Contents Broken Links Other Your Name: * Details: * Submit...

    In Memorial – Roice Petschauer

    Roice “StyEpsen” Petschauer  – Alpha Base May 15, 1985 – July 15, 2002 “Roice was my friend. Some would say that I only state this because he’s gone, that hindisght is 20/20. But we’ve known each other for almost three years, good friends for nearly two, and I felt closer to him than many of the people I see every day here at home.” – Jake Tolby “Reading his posts he left, brought smiles and more often laughter to this Imperial Pilot. A person who can give that gift of laughter to someone they haven’t met, is a special person indeed. And one that will be missed.” – Vexx DuKrinn Report Content Issue: * Blank Page Invalid Contents Broken Links Other Your Name: * Details: * Submit...
