Title: Goodbye
Post by: Rafael on January 31, 2016, 03:34:26 PM
On Friday I received the sad news that our friend Mario Faiad passed away. I never had the opportunity to talk to him, but I consider him a friend because he knew he was in love with the Odyssey and it is these people who give our passion sense. Without them there would be no new games, contests at auctions and even this forum. I hope in heaven there is an Odyssey for you to enjoy.... :(

I saw his name several times at the owners-list from VideopacBelgium and 2600connection.

It`s always sad when somebody die, especially in a small fanbase like Vidoepac/Odyssey2/Odyssey.

I am sure, they has an Odyssey for him in heaven!

 :(  RIP  :(

Sorry to hear this. Unfortunately I didn't know him and I don't know if he was registered here at the forum.

I guess we are reaching the age of more and more people passing on. In the commodore scene there have quite a few the last couple of years. Also in my own surroundings I hear of people from my past no longer being there more often.

Not only we are reaching that age, also the reason, why we are here. More and more Videopac/Odyssey2 and brazil Odyssey game computers pass away. That`s the way of life... :(

Mario always bought my releases. The last time I had contact with him was only half a year ago.

Sad news, along with all those sad news of stars from the eighties passing by just recently ... Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead), David Bowie, Colin Vearncombe (Black), Glenn Frey (Eagles), ...  :(

Do not be discouraged, despite past 35 years, Mario Fayad was an example of young collector who took the Odyssey ahead.

Was a fatality...
I talked to him three days before his death, he was at home recovering it fell from his motorcycle, he did not break anything but had several bruises. Treated as infection in wounds, but there was something else (internally) that when they realized it was too late.

Mario was a lover of Odyssey.

He collected the Brazilian version, American and European.
The Brazilian lacked the ultra rare "Segredo do Farao" and "Gato e o Rato".

Scott,
that "Demon Attack" O2 version, you obtained was for the collection of Mario.

Hopefully he was able to play it a few times.

I hope he has some children or other close family or friends that will continue to use and enjoy his O2/VP collection.

Wow. Sorry to hear about this, as I had been in contact with Mario various times throughout late 2015. He was a very enthusiastic O2/VP gamer! :(
