Is it just me, or does every anime dub studio has a VA that died from a disease? No disrespect to anyone, mind you.

A shame he didn't do many roles before his death. I really thought he was exceptional in the following:

Major Domo (Curse of the Blood Rubies)
Raiden/Big Bear (Fatal Fury)
Kaijinbo (Inuyasha)
Genma Saotome (Ranma 1/2)

I'm still pretty shocked about his passing. He had answered a quick question for me via email only a couple months before he died (I was working on the first DB movie for this site and wanted to confirm a credit of his). I'll always remember him as the voice of Genma in Ranma 1/2 and Kaijinbo in Inuyasha. I also remember his elder voice in DBZ from when I was a kid.
