Transcript of Eulogy to Estes

“I’ve known Estes, or Alex as he is known in real life for around 15 years.

He was a true friend.

On the two deployments I went, there was not a week that went by that he didn’t check on me and at least say what's up.

Even when all the other people I had known back home hadn’t.

Estes started out in the 212th and quickly rose to the rank of Sergeant and Squad leader. Almost completely due to the reputation and respect he garnered from his peers. It’s a shame to see him go.

I’ve had to deal with loss in combat environments from my tours, but nothing prepares you for the heartwrench of someone dying for no good reason.

But Alex didn’t care about that.

He acted like he wasn’t even sick up until the day he passed away.

He felt like he was a part of something greater than himself, and even in the last few months of his life, he still found time to devote to our community. Because he loved being a part of it.

We made him feel big, in a time where he felt small.

I would like to stress

That as a community, we continue to give this experience to our members.

To be a team, a family, something greater, even if it’s just a silly Star Wars arma unit.

With that, it’s time to bid farewell to one of our own.” - CC-1337 “Six”
