Ben Shelton 1974-2005

Ben SheltonBen Shelton a.k.a. Diablo died on March 30, 2005 of a sudden illness.

I knew Ben from my days in the demo scene. We first met in '95 at NAID Apraxia in Montreal and kept in contact on and off on the #trax IRC channel where he went by the nic "olbaid".

It's always tragic when someone dies at such a young age. Though we weren't very close, I did know him and am saddened by his passing. I pray that his family and loved ones find comfort in this time of mourning.

Rest in peace Ben.
