Richie Proffitt, aka PolarBearGod, has passed away

Post by abi » Mon Jun 09, 2008 11:54 am

A really really bad new from MTGS:
Richie Proffitt has just passed away from an unknown illness. He had a past series of medical complications and was admitted to the hospital a few days ago with some sort of foot condition that no one thought was serious.

He was 30 years old.

He was known as PolarBearGod on MTGSalvation and StarCityGames. His specialty was Magic artwork (he moderated the Artwork forum) and he was a talented artist as well.

More details on services and memorials for Richie will be posted as they are organized and become available. To discuss this tragic occurrence and to find the latest information, please read this thread.
Condolences to the family. ._.

Well this is really shocking news.

Sometimes we get angry over stupid things that happen to us every day, and then news like this bring you back down to Earth and make you understand how lucky you are...

Rest in peace Polarbear.

This is very sad. Richie used to come to North Carolina prereleases a long time ago and I hadn't seen him for awhile. I had played him before and always respected him as a player and a person.

He will be missed.
