A sad loss to our community. Though I did not know him personaly, RK's music has been touching and inspiring to me and many others. We're all thankful for the music he left us to remember him by.

May this time of grief pass quickly, and your sorrow be replaced by the good memories he left. My prayers go out to you.

Once more I'd like to iterate that our thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Kee and his family as well as his friends.

Those lost with him as well, including their friends and family.

Too sad an occasion.

Reuben Kee's commitment and contributions to a small budding community such as OCRemix has revealed much about himself as a musician and a person. I personally have always been excited to see his works become released on the site. It was probably his remix from Street Fighter that motivated me to collect more his songs. As a fan, he has done more for me than I could have ever done for him. I can say with some confidence that he is certainly a source of influence for aspiring musicians and will continue to be for years to come.

I am saddened to say I only knew Reuben through his music. I feel that my words can offer little comfort in light of this tragedy, but I offer you my sincerest condolences.

I remember assisting reuben with a 20mb remix upload onto vgmix, really incredible. His was an enormous talent. I'll be enjoying his music for years and years to come.

I mainly knew Reuben through his music. His music moved and inspired me countless times. This is truly a tragic loss. He will live on in his music.

I registered on here just so I could say this.

I have tears in my eyes writing this. I discovered and downloaded Reuben's Ryu for Four Pianos a while back and never knew his name. It saddens me to only discover his name after he died. This song was always one of my favorites and I felt such compassion and power though it. I played fighters competitively in the past and this song always reminded me of the good old days of my life in the past. This hurts me more then I think it should.

Maybe it hurts also to know he was the same age as I am. To think of passing away so young...it's tough to even think about.

I will continue to enjoy all of his music. I have Ryu for Four Pianos on loop right now, with my heart broken.

He will be missed. My heart goes out to his family and friends, whether they knew him personally or through his music like myself.

Rest Well Reuben, you left a great mark on many people.

Reuben's work on Chrono Symphonic was astounding. He was a very talented musician and remixer, and I will greatly miss his contributions to the community.
