RIP Bertz - 06/06/1986-/05/04/2010

Rest in Peace Bertie "Bertz" Brookman

This time I have some very sad news. Previous rage.ns player, Bertie "Bertz" Brookman contracted pneumonia recently. He previously suffered from Muscular Dystrophy which weakens muscles and spent most of his life in a wheelchair. Online, he was free from his worldly contraints and was a fun, friendly guy who loved a laugh.

Following contracting pneumonia, he was taken to Hospital and died aged just 23.

This'll be a hard day for his family. Sad to see you go Bertz, Rest In Peace.

My memories of bertz come from like the early days of levitacus, many games played agains his team, I cant remember the team name, but it was good practice to play with them. Those were kind of the best days in my time in ns, around the time ensl was formed. Im glad he could be part of that memory too, rest i peace mate

Couldn't beleave this when I heared about it, played with him in a few clans ages ago and he had to be one of the nicest guys around, a right laugh too. Will miss you man!
By: Arj ( Ant ) on 16/Apr/10 10:03
He was part of the first clan I ever played in (don't remember the name).. nice guy that undoubtably will be missed.. condolences
By: qin on 16/Apr/10 14:19
No way, 2 months younger than me.. was he in lump's farm team or do I remember another guy? A relative of mine fell for same illness but at a later age.

RIP man, one of the nicest guys I've ever talked to...
By: Mt ( #YouOnlyLerkOnce ) on 16/Apr/10 21:39
Was a really nice guy and a good player too. Had some great times clanning with him... such a shame..
RIP dude :(
By: fades on 18/Apr/10 04:13
Great ns player, especiall on the early patches where he dominated as marine, rip.
By: Admirable ( coolclan ) on 23/Apr/10 02:21
Genuinely nice guy, who got a bum deal in life yet took it on the chin.

Spent many an hour on the old vent; he could definitely hold his own in the banter stakes and rolled with the punches.

Epic gorge!
By: Avex on 23/Apr/10 08:48
I remember Bertz as a hotspur with a very pleasant character. I'll keep him in good memory.

My condolences to his family, all the best wishes to them.

By: SyntaxOfLimbo ( Stray Dogs ) on 25/Apr/10 13:53
I just knew him by his nickname, wish I had known him better.

My condolences to his family and those who knew him.
By: Quake ( PAGA ALPHAS ) on 21/Jun/12 18:04
