Monty Oum, Animator for Rooster Teeth has passed away

Monty Oum, an animator for Rooster Teeth, and the man behind fantastic series Dead Fantasy, and my personal favourite machinima Haloid, has passed away. He had an allergic reaction to a simple medical procedure, and entered a coma. He was unable to recover from it, and sadly passed away on yesterday. He is survived by his wife, his father, his three brothers and two sisters.

I don’t really have a whole lot else to say, only that my best wishes go out to his family, and his co-workers at Rooster Teeth. You’ll be missed, Monty. A lot of us value and love the work you did, and you’ll always have a place in our hearts.

RoosterTeeth have posted a heartfealt obituary imploring fans to not donate gifts or money to the family, but to to something creative with their time, to honour Monty. That obituary is here.
