A good friend has gone

Jun-KazamaMany of you will have known my good friend Jun Kazama, in many forums known as ‘Gallopinggoose’.

I am sad to tell you that Jun passed away on December 3rd, a victim of cancer.

Our heartfelt condolences go to his dear wife Fumie first and foremost.

But also to all of his many friends all over the world, whom he charmed with his enthusiasm and Internet presence. Jun was part of many Internet communities and forums and always present in our Beta Teams. He was a virtual bush pilot, made wonderful videos and connected many Japanese simmers to the rest of the world.

I know from our conversations that Jun strongly believed in us coming back in another form after passing away. That means we’ll meet again. Maybe, as Jun once said, as the eagles we both loved so much.

Rest in peace, my friend, until we meet again.

Very sad to hear of Jun’s passing – he was a true embodiment of the community that grew out of Microsoft’s flight simulator and other platforms. A very talented scenery designer, aircraft modeler and painter. FS is a poorer place without him.

Very sorry to hear that Jun has passed. A real friend to you and pioneer to many of us.

Heartfelt condolences to his family and friends. The community has lost a ‘one of the best.’

Soar like an eagle Jun and, hopefully, become one.
