RIP TNZ Ramoza (1996 - 2012)

Post by Admin on Wed Feb 22, 2012 6:33 am

EZT Wareagle contacted me yesterday and shared some sad news.

EZT WEBSITE
EZT Neo 45:
Team EZT has seen members come and members go. Some join us for a season and then move on whether it's Real Life getting in the way of our loved hobby or for other reasons. In any case, most have been and are welcome to return.

Unfortunately, on the very first day of this brand new year of 2012, Team EZT suffered its most difficult loss. TNZ Ramoza, known by his Real Life family and friends as Luis Ramos, passed from this world. To many of us on EZT, he was a good friend and teammate. To others, he was more like a son or brother. In any case, this young man--a little less than a month from turning 16--had the joy, happiness, and excitement that significantly impacted all with whom he came in contact.

He was so very excited when he learned he'd been accepted to EZT Motorsport. For whatever reason he hadn't been able to change his gamertag to be officially EZT Ramoza. Many of his new teammates tried one thing or another to have his gamertag reflect what he had in his heart--membership to this team! We learned of the difficulties that might have to be experienced when Forza 4 launched. Again, many of his teammates wanted to do whatever they could so that their friend and teammate would not be--or feel--left behind. We at EZT so looked forward to seeing him in a party lobby on XBL, getting kicked from said lobby, and just enjoying being together online.

Luis was a very talented young man. He could do things with Forza 3's paint/design module that would make anyone who saw his work say, "Wow!" We couldn't wait to see the works of art that awaited us from the hands of this wonderful young man in Forza 4! We were truly privileged to have him on this team.

Yes, this game and hobby may be in a virtual world. It gets many of us out of the trials and tribulations that inundate us on a daily, and sometimes hourly, basis. But, those individuals who participate--no matter where they call home--are as cared about, loved even, as our own immediate family.

The Bible tells us that there is a time for everything...a time to live and a time to die; a time to laugh and a time to cry. Speaking for all of EZT, it has been our pleasure to live and laugh with you, Luis! I believe you know that. Now, unfortunately, that you have been taken to the presence of the Maker of all things, it is our time to cry.

You will be missed, my friend. You will not be forgotten!


It is in times like these that I get a lump in my throat and think of my own, damit man!!!

If we loose someone due to illness we can call it mother nature, but not in this way, silly, no not needed in this beautiful world. Here was a kid that just wanted to feel part of, wanted to hit the track and play the game we ALL love. Forzaneer.

So through the past and the future lies paths unknow, take care.

Regarding this and to show that we here at the IFCA also want to pay our respect to a youngster that had the world to look forward to.

I ask Chilledheat and Ryan to do a lap of honor with me, next Monday 9pm GMT time. We do a 60mph lap, any car any class round catalunya, with a 60 second stop just in front of the start finish line. We dont need to say a single word, we just get into the lobby and start the lap, I will set it up and invite Chilled as he is still on my list, I ask Chilled to invite Ryan please. Don and Dale you are also invited if you can make it.

This is just to show that even through the rough waters of the past and no matter how far apart we are we can surely unite in a cause like this, a true honor and I cant think of anything bigger for us to do.

Please PM me on XBOX live if you agree, I know you cant read here anymore but the word needs to spread through the grapevine.

Peace!

I did hear of this prior, and it does make for very sad news indeed. We send the friends and family our sincere support in this time of grief.

Thank you on behalf of EZT MOTORSPORT and his sister. It was through her, using Luis's gamertag, that I was informed of his untimely passing.

In tribute...

Wow. Shocked. I remember racing with him last year, and this is very sad. Flags at half staff around our racing world.
