has passed away, after fighting leukemia and despite a bone marrow transplant
. You probably haven't heard of him, but he was an animation fan par excellence
in Montreal. I first learned of him through his magazine, FPS
(Frames Per Second), which I found at Nebula, Montreal's science-fiction/fantasy/alternative comics bookstore in the early 90s. His articles and editorials were always balanced and informative, and just plain nice to read
. He was friendly, smart, humble, and was both well-known and well-respected within animation circles. I'm sorry to hear he's gone... this is a very sad loss.
Rest in peace, sir, and my deepest condolences to your family, friends and fans.
