Not a celebrity who passed, but we just lost a kind-hearted soul in the game show community today.

My acquaintance Michael Tiller (known as mtiller2006 on YouTube), a fellow TPIR fan, has suffered a medical crisis since this past December that has culminated in him being pronounced dead moments ago. He was 35.

This one hits me pretty heard, too. The Game Show Temple was one of the first game show YouTube channels I remember watching. Godspeed, Michael.
