It is with tremendous pain that I inform you that Doom community pillar and Quakecon veteran United States of America Aaron "DemonSphere" Emge passed away early on the morning of September 24th, 2017.

Aaron was a legend in the Doom community and he will be sorely missed. Many here know he was also a gifted Quake and Quake Champions player

Aaron recently placed in the Quakecon DOOM 2v2 with fellow UniDoom member United States of America Wartorn. I had the chance to meet him at Quakecon 2013 for the 20th anniversary Doom II tournament; where he whooped my ass, made me a better player, and a better person.

Love you Aaron
Rest In Peace my Friend

UPDATE: Aaron's death has officially been ruled accidental.
