I have some sad news today... One of our long-time users, Zach Finley, has died in a car crash at age 17. Zach was known to many friends as Cerealbox Clock.

Dan Paladin (Synj / SynjClock) has put together a tribute to Zach.

I've always thought about stuff like this... such a big site... so many users...

I'd never heard of him until this post.

That's life for you.

He got a wonderful send-off, though. Front page post and a tribute flash. Any newgrounds junkie would have a tear in the eye at that.

on a serious note 17 is too young of an age to die your whole life is ahead of you and to be snuffed out so young is a shame

prehaps he will reincarnated as a clock!

The flash dedication was really awesome. It is so sad to hear that such a young man has died so senselessly. Thanks for the posting letting us know about it.

Yeah I heard about it. I iddn't know if it was true, because people on NG have the twitch to fake their death, but if it's taken so far with a flash made and a front page post, then it's serious.

May he rest in peace.

Cmon man, don't questions someone's death, thats pushing it a little too much. I know there are many users on newgrounds, but its sad to lose good members. Death is such a sad thing, but it has to happen sooner or later

death is part of life

when we are born cells are created then they die

the sun will die out too one day
the suns light gives plants energy to grow

animals and insects eat the plants

predators eat the animals we eat the animals and the cycle continues
bacteria consumes us when we die and we become one with the earth again

Sorry if I overemphasized the game. It is a truly sad thing, though.
Only the good die young, unfortunately.
