As some of you know, our beloved friend, and former clock Splatterberry, or "Splatter" has passed away due to his long battle with Leukemia. Although he tried to keep it quiet, he was very inactive on Newgrounds throughout the years up until recently. He'd been diagnosed almost 2 years ago, and was told he wouldn't make it past 3 months. Surprisingly, Tristan "Splatter" Rutherford made it this long, and battled it long and hard.
It's a damn shame he had to go, one would think he's one of the more talented people on Newgrounds. As an IRL friend of Tristan, I know how much he suffered and it's really sad to know that someone with such talent, intelligence, and all around niceness could suffer such a cruel fate.
I was with Tristan two days before he passed, and I know how much it hurt him to live, but he continued on like nothing happened.
Tristan was a fighter, and I know the Newgrounds audience will surely miss him, as will I and his family. I encourage you all to make tributes to Tristan, and I will be sure his family sees them.
Rest in peace, old buddy.
Tristan "Splatter" Rutherford
March 23rd, 1993 - October 28th, 2009
You will be missed.
