Doug Myers Dies

From Joe Siegler... "Doug Myers is a name that is in the minds of everyone here at 3D Realms today. Doug passed away last night at the age of 36 from an asthma attack. Doug was one of the two guys who was over at 3D Realms HQ from the Gathering working on the E3 Duke Nukem Forever video. He can be seen in one of the shots I posted the other day of the guys working on the video (he's the one on the left).

Doug was instrumental in helping us out with web site issues over this past year, and while I can't say I know him on a day to day basis, he was nothing more than kind and pleasant to me in all my business dealings with the Gathering. I'll miss him, but that can't compare to the ache that must be felt over at the Gathering at the moment, as well as his family. My thoughts go out to his family and close friends at this sad time.

You can check out what the Gathering has to say about Doug over at their web site.

You'll get to see some of the work he did on the DNF video once it's released later this month around the E3 show."
