Monty Oum has passed away

Matt Ceo RT:

Our friend, inspiration and co-worker Monty Oum passed away yesterday afternoon at 4:34 PM surrounded by people who loved him very much. Ten days ago Monty suffered a severe allergic reaction during a simple medical procedure that left him in a coma. Although he fought bravely, his body was not able to recover. During his time in the hospital he was well cared for and never in pain at any time.

Just had myself a cry over this. Of all of Roosterteeth I always looked up to him. An amazing creative talent matched by none. Honestly after reading first announcement it was obvious he was in a coma. I just couldn't have prepared myself for him never making the recovery. Too tragic. Far too young.

Agreed, rest peacefully!

Monty, RIP.

At times like this I really do curse my inability to animate the dead. I've been following Oum's works since he began Dead Fantasy and fell in love with RWBY. His interviews were always great and he was a very funny and chill guy.

Rest in Peace, dude. You're missed by millions.

Indeed, very tragic. The Monty Memorial on google is really impressive and sometimes heartbreaking to read. He was loved by many. R.I.P

This hits me right in the heart. I would spend hours as a teenager watching and rewatching Dead Fantasy videos. It's sad to see someone with talent go so soon.

Same here. I'm tearing up on my side. I still watch Dead Fantasy over and over again all the time, particularly when trying to get to sleep, and have loved RWBY since the first Red trailer.

Such an awesome animator, he will be missed by many.

Condolences to his close friends and family.
