Brian "PoShYbRiD" Vigneault was a beloved streamer in the World of Tanks community. Father of three, and friend to many, Brian passed away on February 19th, 2017 doing what he loved; Streaming to his Twitch community of over 7,000 followers. Brian has made friends all across the globe and was well regarded though he did tend to have his moments of rage that only further endeared him to his followers and friends. This fund has been created for the benefit of his three children he left behind and will be managed by his father, Ronald.  At only 35 years of age he was taken from them and us far too soon. We will always keep you in our hearts and memories so that you may live on forever as part of your awesome community and a legend in your own right. Though the void you left cannot be filled knowing this fund will go towards your children's future gives us some respite in our time of grief and sorrow.  Much love!! <3

Hi Jessica,

Thank you so very much as the access to the account has been setup and I am able to withdraw the monies. Wow, up over $17,000, you guys (and gals) in his online community are so amazing and his kids will really appreciate what you are doing. Yes, I would really appreciate it if you can send out the thank you's.

Within your update post or thank you's, please pass along from his family that we are so appreciative of the outpouring of love and concern from his friends and online gaming community. These monies will only be used for the future support and the needs of his children. He died way too young and in death he will be able to provide and do some things for his children that during his shortened time on earth unfortunately did not allow

You may also pass this along if you want as I'm not sure if you guys know where his name poshybrid came from. He has always been into working on cars and a long time ago had a Honda that had an engine swap to a bigger motor and I guess he called that a hybrid. He also had a lot of trouble with it and at times called it a POS (piece of shit).......there you have the meaning and beginning of PoShYbRiD.

Again, thank you all so very much and I will stay in touch!

Ronnie Vigneault

Man.. there aren't enough words to express how much you meant to us in the WoT community. You weren't just a streamer, you were a selfless individual. entertainer, father of 3, a brother and a friend. Your personality alone was enough to keep us happy. I just want to give thanks for the opportunity to have known someone like you. Miss you already man... Sleep on bro :( ~A_bot_

I haven't been around in the WoT community for a while so I didn't pay a visit to the stream lately either, but I did follow some of what was going on in the background and I was happy to see he got into FAME and kept doing what he liked most with the people who appreciated him. I went by the stream today and saw I still have moderator status since the times when I was a regular long ago and we used to play together. He never forgot about me or any of his friends even when we weren't there. A great and generous person with a big heart and contagious laugh who deserved better. You'll be missed Poshy! -AngelofAwe

Tell me this. I'm not trying to shame or blame anything, but the original goal for poshybrid's children was 8,000 or whatever. Now, why did you raise the goal to $25,000? Wouldn't everyone agree that that is a bit selfish? Asking for MORE money than the original goal that was set? From the bottom of my heart, I wouldn't think that Poshybrid would want more from what the original was. I may just be talking jibberish, but I feel that raising the goal was not okay. Their shouldnt be more room for more money.

Never saw your stream but I saw what happened online and everyone deserves help at some point whether it be you or your family. We are all people and need to be there for each other. I'm sure you are in a better place now and we will go through the same journey when it is our time. R.I.P Brian
