This is being reported today. I guess we don't have ol' Jack to kick around anymore.

I couldn't believe how many friends I had on facebook that I didn't know were gamers posting about this. Sad news for his family. That comic will always live on though.

The sad part I stumbled across was that he outlived his child.  As bad and regressive as his 'work' was, I have to feel terribly badly for him for that.

I did not know that. That is tragic.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Chick - it is in the right-hand summary under his photo.

On DF, people have been posting some of his tracts - it looks to me like he put forward a lot of hateful ideas that had nothing to do with gaming, which was what I knew him for.
