I just learned that Bob Hovey, AKA Adomma, died of a heart attack October 30th.

I have played with him in TW for most of twenty years, at first as an opponent, but later almost always as a corpie. He was honorable, loyal and great to know.

It was sudden and unexpected.

Oh my gosh..

I recently exchanged only a few words with him... wish I had the chance to know him better.

Rest in peace.

Adomma will be missed. He was a great teacher and a very kind person. I knew him for less than a year, but he had impressed me with his insight and knowledge.

I was lucky to have had some time with him recently.
After a long seperation I had resolved things with my wife of many years. Upon hearing this he told me "Good! Thats where your supposed to be." and yet again I was in awe of his perception and moral depth. His twitter page is covered in pictures of family and friends. He never stopped caring, loving, giving, and doing for others. There are pictures and articles on hovepnsports.com and other sites from Oct. 30, 2014, the day he slipped away doing what he loved, promoting young athletes and encouraging us all to be the best we can.
After gaming with him off and on for 20 years I can honestly say that I am a better person for having known Bob, and he touched millions of lives with his work. The world is a better place from his presence. He would hope we all aspired to the same.

Here's his page from Boo Inc! that I re-coded last year.

I don't believe I ever had the privilege of playing with him, but this past year or so, he and Kav have been playing on my server, kicking butt too!

The two of them are/were also playing in this year's HHT.

R.I.P. TWarrior! Played up until the end...

I played with adomma in a couple of tourneys, and was destroyed by him in unlims when I first started to figure out this game. He was one of the best, and will be missed.

RIP

This might be the TW passing that's struck me the most. I played some great games with Adomma during an otherwise unpleasant time in my life. Safe journeys, amigo.

Woke up thinking about my buddy this morning. He would have had a great time torturing the game the way we do today. "Cha-Ching!"
