Rest in piece good sir, who knows what games would look like without you. He's also suspected of being the namesake of Kirby and it seems that he was also a big civil rights activist.

It also should be noted he did significant help for the civil rights movement.

I kinda feel sad that I only learned about this now.

Did not know that part. Rest in peace Kirby; it's been a bash. I have even greater respect for you now then I did before.
