Twilighte / Defence Force has died :(

category: general [glöplog]
Unfortunately, we have the sad news to report that Twilighte / Defence Force, aka Jonathan Bristow, died yesterday at 6pm.

He will be remembered for his attendance at and participation in the competitions at Alternative Party in Helsinki, Finland, a few years ago (I believe he attended at least two of these) and was a firm friend to all those who knew him, here in the UK and in Finland. He also visited one of the first Outline parties too, as I remember he decided to miss his flight back to the UK that was at the wrong time and he came back to the UK with CiH and myself in the car.

RIP Twilighte, you'll not be forgotten.

Really nice guy, stayed at my place for a few days during one of his visits to Finland. I will miss him.

RIP Jonathan!

He did also visit Finland couple of times outside parties, always a good friend to hang with.

Rest in peace dear friend.

Never knew the guy, though probably saw him once or twice. So long.

RIP :(
Jonathan was a very nice guy, supporter of Alternative Party and his demoscene work on Oric won't be forgotten. More importantly, the friendly gentleman that he was won't be forgotten.

He was the real deal: A great human being, a talented programmer, a musician, a graphician, and a friend.

Sad news :(

The name "Jonathan Bristow" rings a bell - is there a chance that I heard it somewhere else?

I also remember one of the Alt parties, it was very late and Twilighte was patiently showing a caffeine wrecked scener around his laptop with his Oric stuff on it. Then there were the epic Sauna based afterparties.... Happy days! He will be sorely missed :(

Gargaj: He was present with me at the State of the Art 2002, AltParty 2003, Assembly 2004, Kindergarden 2005, and also to a number of other parties by himself. Perhaps you met him at one of these parties?

His contribution to the Oric scene, where he would always share brilliant ideas, where he would show how to make that modest machine shine. He seemed to be a patient, friendly man, always willing to help and encouraging others, and really modest with that. Really sad to read such a news, R.I.P
I remember him from the Kg party he visited. Had a long and nice chat with him. Sad to hear that he passed away. Rest in peace.

I met Twilighte at the first Outline and had an awesome conversation with him during my midnight shift that year. We chatted a couple of times on other occasions after that, and it was always awesome to talk to him. RIP Jonathan, you will be missed.
