Brian Wood, 33 years youth who holds on to an important position in Relic Entertainment and also has a major role in the development of the saga of Company of Heroes strategy and was currently working on the upcoming Company of Heroes Online.
Last Friday, when returning home by car with his wife, pregnant, suffered a terrible accident that cost him life, while his wife came out almost unscathed, except for some minor problem in the neck due to the intensity the coup.
According to the police report, the accident was caused by a young man named Jordy Weichter 21, who under the influence of drugs tried to remove his sweater while driving, while his companion, Samantha Bowling, holding the wheel lost the control of the car at high speed.
The result of the accident was the death of Brian Wood and the two occupants of the backseat of the car that caused the accident, 25 and 26 years respectively.
A few days after the accident, the deceased's wife, Erin Wood, declined to talk about the last heroic act of her husband and by which both she and her child in her womb, were able to save their lives.
"In his final act, he did what he could do to save us," said Mrs. Wood.
"All police officers have told me that if the car had given us full in front, we'd all be dead. At the last second, Brian braked very sharply to turn the car towards the right, so he took all violence of the impact, not me or the baby. This was the only thing that saved us both."
Beyond this noble act, Mrs. Erin wanted to end with the following, "He was the most amazing and of good heart who never have known, loved his job, loved his family . I'm not quite sure how they are supposed I live the rest of my life without him. He truly was a gift, and not change anything about any of our moments together. The baby is due in November, so come quick, look to the future and know I'll see a bit of what Brian was our baby and that's what gives me strength at this time."
We do our modest but sincere tribute to Brian Wood. Rest in peace.
