Suckage, RIP Tom.


Loved his books while I was in high school and the military.

Heard about this early this morning while I was at the dentists office. Sucks a lot. And I have co-workers who haven't even heard of him..... I died a little inside at that revelation.

RIP Tom Clancy.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.

That's a damned shame, I haven't read many of his books, but I enjoyed the ones I did read greatly. RIP

One of my favorite authors of all times, saddens me deeply.

Well fuck. That just sucks the big floppy one. I will definitely miss the anticipation of waiting for his new book.

Can't say I was a fan of his recent books but I did enjoy his earlier work. Red Storm Rising and Red October are two of my all time favourites.

66 is too young.

I'm in the military and was shocked how many people hasn't herd of him when I said this in scoff.

Sad when anyone dies. RiP Tom, and the bods who drowned on that boat near Italy.

I have to say I knew him more for the video games and movies based off of his work rather then for his books... but as a gamer and moviegoer, its still sad that he's gone. 66 is too early for someone who has given so much.

RIP
