Brent Holowka, known as BackAssward on the forums, passed away on October 9th, 2015. He was 37 years old.

The exact cause of death was unknown at the time his wife contacted us, but the ER doctor put down coronary.

Brent helped with testing, planning and programming on Sven Co-op in addition to several miscellaneous tasks. More importantly, he was a great guy who genuinely cared about other team and forum members. I enjoyed his company, and he'll definitely be missed by myself and the community here. While it of course provides no consolation, the team intends to dedicate the 5.0 release to him.

Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to Brent's wife, who is naturally the most affected by this tragedy. Condolence messages posted in the comments will be passed on to her, but if you need to get in direct contactfor any reason, please let us know.
