We lost one of our own this week. Reuben James Karnagerulz was an outstanding Executive Officer and loyal friend who dedicated the past 6 years of his life to the betterment of Gamer’s Outpost LLC.

Reuben was also a fighter whom I deeply admired for his zest for life. Whether it be a  Zombie Run, Comic Book, Cosplay and or Gaming Convention, Charitable event, or even Storm Chasing, Reuben was always at its core, never allowing health issues to prevent him from enjoying life while always placing others above himself.

For example, Reuben would often game on behalf of the sick kids of St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital via the Extra Life Charity for hours on end. And he would not stop until his set monetary goal was accomplished.

And it was his love of gaming and our overall community which brought Reuben to us in 2013 where he quickly worked his way from the rank of Editor to becoming our Executive Officer of Public Affairs and Marketing. He held this position honorably, even writing our official Mission Statement.

Reuben was the proud winner of our Annual Editor Award in 2016 and 2017 respectively. This program meant a lot to him, so to honor his memory, it has been renamed The Reuben James Karnagerulz Juarez Editor of the Year Awards.

Reuben will never be forgotten by our organization. He holds a special place with us, his “adopted gaming family”. I will miss his “night owl” wisdom when we bantered about the business from late at night into the early hours of the morning.

“Thank you” Reuben. Rest in peace my friend.
