Aaron Benjamin Odom: My Brother, the Super Saiyan, Jedi, a lifelong member of the Fiend Club, and Honorary Companion Of The Hall, recently fell victim to The Spellplague. Drizzt and Guenhwyvar could not save him this time as they had so many times before.
Retro Gamer. Loved the old Nintendo machines with deep passion. An avid lover of music: Tool, Skinny Puppy, They Might Be Giants, The Misfits, Morrissey, Jeff Buckley. A landscaper who put in a hard day's work. Loved fishing and was a crack shot with a pistol.
He struggled with various substances throughout most of his adult life in a cyclical pattern. Ending a good period of sobriety in the worst way possible.
All of the things he loved. Comics, music, certain books. Everquest powerleveling marathons. Road trips to see Skinny Puppy, Death Cab for Cutie or the Postal Service. Alabama A-Day games with the brothers and Mouse.
The complexity of how he came to be who he was. Even with our 7-year difference, we had so many of the same interests. When he was excited about something, which was often, he could command the room. In the 10+ years since we last lived together, I have missed him.
