Early yesterday morning, a beloved member of our FGC family passed away: Christopher “NinjaCW” Harris. He was the manager of Filpsid3 Tactics, a strong community leader, and a loved son. He was beset by a case of Myocarditis–a heart virus–and succumbed to the condition despite the efforts of doctors.
Many have been either directly or indirectly influence by the passing of this man, who even without his efforts as a community leader was well known for his competition in games like Street Fighter and Dead or Alive. I never got a chance to meet the man personally, and I am saddened that I’ll never get that opportunity.
From everyone here at Shoryuken: we are incredibly saddened by this loss, and wish the best to his family.
Christopher’s mother has also set up a GoFundMe to help with Funeral and Medical costs. He had no life insurance, and a tragedy like this would overwhelm anyone. If you have anything to spare, the campaign link is here.
