I feel as though this is the saddest thing to ever happen in FIRST.
The 2020 rookies of FRC will never hear him speak at kickoff or at world champs. They will not see videos of him speaking on gracious professionalism throughout their competitions. They will not remember his voice when they think of the ethical way to compete.
They will however feel his legacy in the ethos of FIRST. The community is forever inspired by his words and wisdom, and will continue to carry on his teachings long past today.
You will be missed.
