On Sunday 15/08/11 Callum was tragically killed in a motor vehicle accident.

Callum was a valued member of our club and a regular gamer at 40K tournaments in WA.

Callum successfully represented our club at last year's Tournament Of Champions alongside his friend Owen. Callum and Owen were often found fielding the most fiendish of forces at our team events. Callum will be sorely missed at future events.

The death of a friend is always hard to accept, but the loss of someone so young and full of potential is overwhelming.

On behalf of myself, my family and the committee and members of Armadale Wargames, I would like to extend our condolences to Callum's family and friends.

Gary

That is horrific news... :(

I've known Callum for years via the hobby community and his involvement in events, and I cannot possibly express how saddened I am to hear this.

He will be remembered fondly. My sincere regrets to all of his friends and family.

Wow, that's very sad to hear. My condolences go out to his friends and family.

Recovering from a tragedy like this cannot be easy, especially when it is someone so young.

Oh wow. I've met and played against Callum a few times and he always struck me as someone with more focus than his age suggested. I'm so sorry to hear this.

Wow that’s terrible, especially for someone so young.
It’s going to be weird not seeing his Tyranids terrorising the tables anymore.

Best of wishes to his family and friends.

What was his westgamer username?

I don't know him, but I'm nonetheless, his friends/family have my sympathy/condolences.

That is very saddening.

I only met Callum a couple of times but on those occasions I found him to be a fun and friendly guy, and a keen tactician.

My condolences to the Callum's family and friends.

With the fun he brought and the fact he was a great player, it was always a pleasure to have him around.
We will miss him.
