Giant Bomb's Ryan Davis Passes Away
We never like to hear news like this. So sad.
We've learned that Giant Bomb's Ryan Davis has passed away. He died on July 3 at the too-young age of 34.
I never knew Ryan personally but I'm sure this is a shocking loss to everyone involved at Giant Bomb, and gaming journalism has lost a decent guy. His friends obviously loved him; the article says Ryan "had an unconventional type of kindness that expressed itself more strongly the longer one knew him." Even more unfortunate is the fact that Ryan had recently married. Here's part of the statement concerning Ryan's life:
"In the face of this awfulness, many of us will at least always remember him as we last saw him: outrageously, uproariously happy, looking forward to his next adventure with the biggest grin his face could hold."
Tragically in life, these things happen. It's too bad that someone so young never got a chance to live a full life, and it's important to remember all the good he left behind. Provided we remember someone with a positive outlook, that memory will likely endure. RIP Ryan Davis.
