A Modder's Passing

GTAGaming.com - Community News | @ 12:59 PM CST | By rappo
On June 7, 2005, the same day as San Andreas's release for the PC in America, a well-respected member of the GTA community, an excellent modder, passed away. Although the details of his death were not released for obvious reasons, Odie's passing is a devestating loss for the GTA community. For those of you that didn't know Odie, he was a great map modder, if not the best, and I am sad to see him go at such an early age.

For more information about Odie's work and a chance to say a nice word about him yourself, please visit this GTAForums thread.

Thanks to TGR for bringing this sad news to our attention.

Damn, his mods were so perfectly done it's hard for me to come to terms with this.
His beach park alone will always be my favourite mod.
R.I.P Odie, you will be missed alot.

Did hear about his mods but by the time that I knew his name he already was less active at GTAforums. RIP Odie.

I can't believe it. ODIE was a major inspiration to me. I found out about him when GTA3 PC came out. He's the reason I bought it, he's the reason I got into modding for GTA. I worked with him on Fun World and Myriad. I really can't believe this happened... he was a legend. He was the best mapper this community had. ODIE I hope your family is well.

I loved the stunt park for VC. It was one of my first mods to manually install.

Now I know I won't have a good 4th of July because I know I used one of his mods.

RIP.

R.I.P. Odie.

I played your mods from time to time. You always spent time for people. You never really cared about your own free time, all you wanted to do is creating mods and helping people.

This sucks. I mean with a kid at 8 and a wife imagine what they're going through.

I will always remember his Beach Park stunt mod for VC, and this has really gotten to me.

R.I.P Odie, I hope your happy wherever you are.

I think he died from spending too much time on the computer... (if any) like this one kid that played a computer game 12 hours straight.... and died.

I didn't use mods, and I didn't know him very well, but I'd heard of his work and feel horrible about his untimely passing. I'm talking to a friend who mods to change something in San Andreas to remember him, probably a billboard.

And GTT, I highly doubt that he died sitting in front of a computer, that is an awful thing to say about anybody, particularly Odie.

EDIT-I just got off the phone with my friend, we decided that this is a rough idea of what we'll make in memory of Odie.

If you can't tell, we're changing the "Cok O Puffs" billboard on both sides, this is the only screenshot I could find of it.
