Rest In Peace “LowerSioux”

SAD, SAD news today January 10th, 2013
I was notified that a good friend that I (and many of the CODBUNKER “CREW”) played Call of Duty with for many years…… Myself for over 5 years now. “Chuck Good Thunder” known as by many of us on the PSN as “LowerSioux” has crossed over from this life to another today :’( It is truly a sad day. We know and meet many friends throughout our lives via many different ways, such as school, church, work, etc….. But there is also another way in todays day and age, that many of us become quiet close friends with people, people that we never even actually meet face to face. After HOURS & HOURS of play time on Call of Duty, be it Multiplayer, Zombies or what have you, you spend time talking about very deep subjects with some of these people (not all but those “few”).

Some of these people you form a special bond with, that in some cases is closer than people that you actually know. “Lower” was one of these people for me “BUNKER”, “Todd”, or “Buckeye” whichever you preferred to call me. I spent (just guessing here) appx over 1000 hours a year with Chuck, that’s over 40 straight days, or over 120 “workdays” so it’s easy to get to know some of the peeps you play with on a daily basis online in the gaming world of COD. I enjoyed our “deep” discussions and just plain silly discussions, we had a good time online. I got to know Chuck quite well. I knew Chuck had got in trouble a while back for drug’s and spent some time in “lockup” as he called it, and recently had a relapse, for which he got clean again, so based on this info, and what I’ve seen on his facebook it looks as if this may have been an accidental overdose, BUT REMEMBER, I do not know for sure, so please if you do, leave us a comment here to clarify.

Why am I stating this here, one might ask? Well Chuck & I had long discussion, just sitting in an empty lobby, he and I. I feel he would have no issue with me discussing this with you know, especially if his passing was due to drugs. But before I go to far into a rant here (Mostly due to emotions of losing Lower) I will wait until I see the “OFFICIAL” reason for his passing, but if you have problems with drugs……DEAR GOD……PLEASE…..PLEASE….seek help, call a friend, I know Chuck had MANY that would’ve been there for him (and many of you do as well, you just don’t realize it, or think you deserve it, but YOU DO)

I just wanted to pass this info on to the “Bunker” family and offer my condolences to Chuck’s family and friends, and hopefully we’ll have more answers later. So Chuck………Lower…….Rest in Peace my Brother!!! YOU WILL BE MISSED BY MANY!!!




Remember our Military this Christmas Season!

December 16, 2011 in General Discussion

Checking my Facebook this morning I noted two videos posted by some fellow veterans, former “Shipmates” of mine, Lou Tardona Jr. and Jerry Powell. I wanted to share them with you, to help us remember our Military that “stands to wall” and “keeps watch” during this Christmas season (as well as 24/7/365) giving us the security and freedoms to enjoy our time off to play a game (Call of Duty) that they live in real life. So when you open your presents this Christmas and find that “Santa” has brought you an Xbox or PS3 along with “Modern Warfare 3″ pause for a moment and reflect while you play this fantasy of being a soldier that REAL ones are out there giving you the ability to enjoy this game with “no worries” because they are currently “Standing Guard” for us. Thank you to all current serving Military and Veterans, Peace be with you, and YOU will be thought of this Christmas Season :)
