There are so many screenshots of him both ingame, at H*EA*T meets and well everywhere.
Testing..
Seen here jumping up and down first at 1:24, and his first speaking role is at @1:45 talking about all the pizza hut noobs back in Battlefield 2, including his infamous nutzap and my gun camera.

Very sad news, whenever he joined on mumble I would always have to stay on another round, he will be missed.

Ive been following this on the news having no idea who it was until now :( Tbird was one of nicest blokes ive come across on mumbles and was the reason I started a mumble server for our clan, he was a champion.

My condolences to the HEAT clan and most importantly his family.

Sincerely gutted

If anyone has photos of him, feel free to post them here. I'm slowly going through them now.

Just realised a few things - his quote is still in the top right, where he was telling someone off for having a low K/D aka a Roach score.

He's seen here at one of our H*EA*T meets:
http://imgur.com/49IV7.jpg
(It's a big picture so click to bring it up)

He's the middle blue top on the upper right, giving us the thumbs up.

Tuesday 23rd Mornington Racecourse at 2pm. Final details guys.

Thunderbird shows us his stunts on Operation firestorm at BF3 in it's first few days.
Testing..

The paypal information is roachish@gmail.com . I'm looking at wreath pricing still. I am thinking of getting it made in Melbourne at this point, and will post updates on here somehow too.

Honest mistake guys. The service will be held at Mornington Racecourse in MORNINGTON, not Flemington. Mornington is a 20 minute trip from Frankston. If we all catch a train to Frankston, we could maxi cab it there to save on cost.

yeah man its the easiest way for me to do it, come in early and leave at the end of the day. Gives breathing room and time to get organised as well as free time in the morning to get shit done. Dont want to risk being delayed by shitty budget airlines either

Hi everyone. I just got back from the funeral.
I wanted to thank everyone that contributed, but also everyone that remember their time with Jordan in our clan. A lot of us will remember him for the lengthy chats he would be up for at any time.

He's an inspiration to all of us in the clan.

We had a wreath made up worthy of Jordan:
Image
For reference of scale there is a persons hand a the top, it looked spectacular.

I won't share the card publicly (or the wreath message) as it has everyone's name on it, but it also includes from all of Clan H*EA*T and all of Google Clan.

I just got a message from his little brother that the card was awesome, and it made his mum cry.
Jacinta and Dan was a privilege to meet in person, Jacinta spotting me out from the crowd calling me Roach and having a chat with me. They are so strong to be handling it even at this point.

Thank you all in this tough time. If you have a glass of whatever you drink, I ask that you raise it and have one for Jordan, a fantastic buddy.

Very nice words roach, I'm glad at least some of us were able to make it, Still even now it's hard to believe it's real... The Wreath looks good man, great pick.

R.I.P Jordan, it was an honour.

Thanks for all your time and effort SuperRoach, it is extremely appreciated.

My thoughts are with his family, friends and Clan brothers. Hope that nqbigfoot is holding up well, let him know that we at Google Clan, are thinking of him too.

Cheers to you Roach and the H*EA*T Clan.
