Sean Smith was a veteran Foreign Service Officer of the US State Department. His life ended tragically on September 11, 2012 when the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya came under attack.For those wishing to contribute, please click here to go to the site.
He was known to his many friends in EVE Online and the Something Awful forums as Vilerat. His intelligence, patience and good humor were the cornerstones of Sean's life and those traits moved everyone he came in contact with. Sean was a devoted husband to his wife and he was a proud parent of two children.
To show our love for him and for his family we hope to raise money to help with their current expenses and his children's college expenses.
Update: Because we are over halfway to our initial goal of $50,000 in less than 12 hours, we have doubled the goal to $100,000. Thank you so much for your donations. Every donation, large or small, will help Sean's family.
