Another one who has died much too young.
I would thank him for co-founding the studio that remade one of the best games ever made if I believed you could communicate with the dead. He and his team did an amazing job on SotC, so if nothing else his memory will live on for me in that accomplishment.
That and he was also the lead programmer for MP, the best game that graced the GC. RIP. He was a true inspiration for the industry
