    Darren Filsell aka Fisto on the Org

    I learned yesterday that longtime Org member Darren Filsell aka Fisto, who has been a member here since 2001, has passed away. He was a co-host on the Toy Power podcast and was an incredibly nice, sweet person. We used to message every few months to chit-chat about MOTU and other pop culture things. I will miss him a lot. My deepest sympathies to his family, podcast co-hosts, and his many friends.

    RIP Darren. He was a true gentlemen and one of the most passionate MOTU fans out there.

    I am sorry to hear this. I remember him although we didn't interact very much. May light perpetual shine on him.

    I've become such a casual over the last two decades, but made some great friends and fond memories from my time on the GoG mailing list and the early years of these forums... when I saw people I know and love talking about Darren on Facebook it took me a moment to place him as Fisto, as I'd never had the good fortune to get to know him outside the forums. I wish I had. He was, by all accounts, a wonderful person and in my own experience was one of a handful of people who made a real positive impact on this forum and in discussion back in the day. I miss those days and I'll miss Darren. Sending all my thoughts and goodwill to his family and friends. Good journey, friend.

    ☹ That's awful. I was on a 15 year hiatus from the .org but I do remember him from back then. Truly, truly sad. My condolences to his family.

    I am so very sorry to hear this.

    I think I recognize the handle but I donít believe I ever had an encounter with him personally. I am sorry to hear of his untimely passing. It is good to hear that he is remembered well from those who did know him and it speaks to his good character that he will be sorely missed.
