A great man that contributed a great deal to the history of table-top role-playing, passed away yesterday. May he rest in peace.

Yeah I just heard about it yesterday. Very sad news. He was the co-founder of the Game Designer's Workshop. He also did some amazing work on GURPS Traveller. From what I understand he was suffering from heart problems and diabetes. Too many of these gaming greats pass so early. :/
