  1. Aaron -- You Will be Missed and Never Forgotten

    Written by: Anthony Weed

    Like many others, I had first met Aaron years ago, as a member of the Doom community. Our friendship quickly evolved beyond just Doom though. We quickly discovered similar interests in other things, and have spent countless nights playing video games, watching YouTube videos, or just hanging out in Skype or Teamspeak. I will never forget those fun times. One of these times that really sticks out was a night where Aaron and I sat online, drank, and spent hours watching YouTube videos of emu racing, which shortly before, we had discovered was a thing.

    In 2014, Aaron let me know about how he attended QuakeCon, a video game convention, every year. I decided that it would be fun to meet up with Aaron and attend. We arranged to stay at his place and drive down to QuakeCon the next day. From the moment Aaron picked me up from the airport, we immediately hit it off. We got to his place, in the 100 degree humid weather, and sweated our asses off putting my computer back together, and getting it ready for QuakeCon. That night, we had a blast playing Counter-Strike, and watching movies.

    The next day, on the four hour drive to Dallas, we discovered we had pretty similar interests in music as well. I think we must have listened to most of System of a Down and Eminem’s discography on that drive, while discussing other bands.

    The times we’ve shared at QuakeCon are memories that I will cherish forever. I will never forget how much fun we had not only at the convention itself, but the countless trips to “our bar” at the convention center, the traditional trips to In-N-Out and Taco Bueno, and just hanging out in the hotel room with other members of the Doom community.

    Aaron truly was a great friend. I could always reach out to Aaron about my life’s problems, and always trust him to be honest and caring. even when we didn’t agree on certain topics.

    May you rest in peace and always be in our thoughts and prayers,
    Aaron “DemonSphere” Emge

    You were an amazing person who I spent countless nights with sharing stories and making new memories by all the cool things we did together in the games we played. You brought my skill to a new level and basically created your own tier of gameplay that no one I know was able to reach, and I’m probably doing a disservice to all the great things we joked about or participated in by not listing (but I’d easily run out of space if I tried). Will never forget the great memories we had together, rest in peace.

  3. Rest in peace

    Aaron, its been a while since ive seen you but i will never forget all the good times we had when all us buds would hangout about everyday. Those are moments in life that i will charish forever. You were a great person and will be missed dearly. Rest in peace brother. Condolances to Aarons family.

  4. Even though I didn’t have the pleasure of spending as much time with you as others, you were an incredible guy and a blast to hand out with at Quakecon. You brought a positive energy into the group, and you will be missed. Things won’t be the same without you.

  5. I Have no words .. Im so shocked I just talked with Aaron 2 weeks ago… I could know you a little in this year in ZD .Of course we could play many duels and you showed me being a very good player .. also you showed us, you were a good guy I would have liked know you more . We wish you never did that.
    you will always remain in our minds .
    Rest In Peace . my condolences to the Aaron’s family

  6. RIP Aaron Emge you will be missed, I still cannot believe you are gone, this is one of the saddest weeks of my life. We had a lot of good times over the past decade. Late night chats on TS & Skype, playing DOOM, sharing hilarious memes, impersonating other peoples voices, and epic rap battles. I’m really glad we hung out at Ralph’s wedding. You surprisingly had some nice things to say to me and about how that weekend was one of the greatest weekends in your life. You would do the Hank Hill impersonation so excellent and you’d always had that hysterical laugh when I impersonate a certain someone… You were the best at everything I wish you had reached out to all these people that cared about you before your final decision. You were the nicest person ever. I hope you’re smiling wherever you are!

    Aaron Emge, aka Demonsphere..

    Still unable to locate the words to describe just how truly devastated I and your family and friends including the Doom community are by your sudden passing. I never got the chance to meet you, or really talk to you a whole lot, but it’s undeniable that your presence in TS brought about light and positivity, you were and always will be an amazing person in my eyes. All the memories shared on doom and other games, all of us just having loads of fun.. You always stuck out as a person who brought ecstatic laughter and joy to all you were around. I’ll never forget our Moo2D duel or any times that we spent messing around playing games. You’ll forever be missed and loved by all you associated yourself with. Rest in peace brother. See you at the Entryway. Remeber to bring a rocket launcher cause there’s unfinished business and demons that needs taken care of.

  8. Aaron is one of the most honorable and humble people that I was able to get to know. A noble being, that unfortunately took a wrong turn in his journey. I’ve known Aaron for roughly over 4 years, been a great friend. I enjoyed the late night gaming sessions, his jokes, his impersonations of characters, my favorite would be his Hank Hill impersonation, I would cry of laughter. Ah man, can’t believe you’re actually gone, at least you’re at peace and resting better than this disastrous place. I would do anything to bring you back my friend. My condolences to your friends and family Aaron, may you protect us all from this place, doomgod.
    Rest In Peace brother
    Much love.

  12. Aaron,

    I will never forget all the memories we forged together online and in person. I am very sad to see you go but very happy that every memory I have with you were some of the greatest times of my life. Thank you for being there for every laugh, for every cheer and for every discussion. Your legacy lives on and will not be erased. Your charisma and positive energy propped up everyone around you, and the memory of you will continue to do so. Thank you so much Aaron, we will forever love you and miss you. Continue peacefully onto the next journey.

    I never met him but I’m part of a community he was part of, it’s a sad when the world loses someone so young.

    My condolences to the family.

  14. I didn’t really know Aaron that well, I was actually just starting to get to know him a little better since quake con, but he was always hilarious and a lot of fun on twitch and in game in all the games we played, the quake/doom/gaming community lost a real treasure with his passing and my heart goes out to his family and friends. Rest in peace bro.

  15. You were loved more then you will ever know!

    Aaron was my best friend throughout middle school and high school, He helped shape me into who I am today. He will be missed very much. Rest in peace brother.

  18. Aaron was truly a special guy and someone that I was lucky to have as a close friend. We met playing the game Doom online with each other and we hit it off right away. Then again, it was hard for Aaron not to hit it off with somebody – he was a genuinely charismatic good person. Over the past 6 years, we spent literally thousands of hours together playing all sorts of games, organizing leagues, and another couple thousand just shooting the breeze and making jokes. I was lucky enough to finally meet Aaron in person when he came to Philly for my wedding last September. He stayed for four days and many of us who spent years hanging out over the internet had a great weekend that none of us will ever forget. Aaron was loved around the world and it already feels like a piece of us is missing. I’ll miss you and so will everybody else – you will never be forgotten.

  19. You are now in heaven, you took a piece of my heart with you which can never be replaced but you did leave me something of yourself that I will always carry with me. I love you Aaron!
