    I woke up feeling so sad this morning, as if something terrible had happened...and it had. The twins have always been the sweetest tough guys I've ever known, and Terminator will be sorely missed. My heart goes out to his brother and their family and friends. So hard to believe he's gone. :(

    This! I am so very sad now. It took me 6 years to realize that him and his brother weren't the same person. He always helped me out by being mean when I needed to, but couldn't *coughangracough*. He always made me laugh when I got pissed, even when it was at a regular concert. I'm gonna miss my teddy bear!!!!

    Is there any news on funeral arrangements or anything? I'm sure those who are local and able might go and send him off....

    Really sad news. Every year after turning 21 in 2007 Terminator would always (jokingly since he always remembered me) give me a hard time about my ID (since i still look like I'm under 18). That was a PP ritual i'll miss for sure, always a good time talking to Terminator. He was a class act, and will be surely missed. RIP

    I agree with all of the above - his smile and professionalism at the door was always the beginning of a PP weekend for me.

    Don't know what you've got till it's (he's) gone. And he is gone way too soon.

    I was just devastated when I read the news on FB. Didn't even know he was ill. I agree completely with all the thoughts quoted. He always made me feel like a most welcomed guest in his home. I will miss those big hugs dearly.

    He will definitely be remembered on the poster this year. Does anyone know his real name or have any more photos?

    Terminator's real name is Eric Parker, and Renegade's is Derrick Parker. We'll post arrangements in this thread as we learn of them.

    I knew he was ill, and not doing well, but that doesn't soften the loss. Rest In Peace big man, and sincere & heartfelt condolences to his family & friends.

    Thanks for the address Jen, I'll make sure to get a card out in the next 24 hours........

    Wow, I am in shock! Even back in day when I knew no one he made me smile. I have several pics of him and I over the years. I enjoyed seeing him and looked forward to it. It will not be the same without him. Rest in peace my friend, you will be sorely missed.

    As soon as I saw this, I was thinking of the same thing.

    I remember seeing him every year at ProgPower. Really sad to hear of his passing.

    That was one thing I always liked about ProgPower was just how cool the security always were. They were there when you needed them, but quietly doing their jobs to help maintain peace and sanity and just being cool when you didn't need them directly.

    RIP 'Terminator', you will never be forgotten for the awesome service you provided year in and year out for ProgPower.

    My prayers go out to his family. He truly was the first face I ever saw when I came to my first PP. I looked forward to seeing him every year. He will always be a member of the PPUSA family.
