In Loving Memory of

Condolence book picture

Gareth 'Ethrakaal' Kingston

IT whizz kid, gamer extraordinaire and the most generous, warm hearted man you will ever have met.

Gareth worked as a Technical Specialist/Senior Systems Engineer and quickly earned a sparkling reputation for being the ‘go-to guy’.

He worked immensely hard to improve his knowledge and skill set, passing a plethora of exams in quick succession.

An excellent gamer across all sorts of genres. He spent many years in World of Warcraft with a Tauren healer called Ethrakaal.

Time in Eve Online, Conan Exiles, Last Oasis and many more.

Madly in to Dragons, this is where he got the Ethrakaal name from too.

Gareth came in to my life in 2007 and made me the happiest woman alive.

He gave me strength and support and was my happy ever after and my rock.

He gave the best bear hugs and was the most loving and affectionate person I have ever met.

We sadly never got our move to the country but I promise to do my best to achieve this at some point in the future.

I will miss you more than you will ever know my darling.

Sleep well, until we meet again.

I love you with all my heart.

Words are something that still fail me.  Your laughter, your jokes, your support, and your willingness to share is something that will be greatly missed.  I’ll miss our “massive arguments” as counsellors. I’ll treasure our discussions about dioramas and trains. I’ll miss arguing over whose wife is whose.  I’ll just miss… you.  You will …

Gareth, I’d only known you for 7 years, nowhere near enough. As your friend, colleague and manager either directly or indirectly over that time I was fortunate enough to get to know you quite well although, as it turns out, not as well as I would have liked. A warm and friendly guy liked …

Eth truly was one of a kind. Gentle, warm, incredibly selfless. He lit up every voice call, every chat. I remember all of our talks very fondly, he always had a kind word to say and we would be laughing almost all the time!  I’m very blessed to have spent so much time with …

We first met Ethrakaal playing Wildstar. From there we’ve been a part of many communities alongside him and Kaliska, from World of Warcraft and many, many other MMOs to Ark, Minecraft and Twitch.

Gareth, as you can imagine we were all devastated on hearing of your passing. You were hard working with a great sense of humour and made us all laugh; and always willing to help others even when extremely busy yourself, embodying the team spirit. It has been my privilege and honour to have known …

Working with Gareth was always a pleasure, you were never made to feel like a burden or that anything was to much to ask, and you knew that you were getting service with a smile, even when you were at the other end of a call or email.  Your pragmatic, helpful, can-do approach and …
