    On Wednesday, Quag Prime - real name Mike Myers - and his wife, Katie, were swept off a jetty at Yaquina Bay, Oregon. They had been celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary.

    Portland couple identified as man and woman swept off Yaquina Bay jetty | OregonLive.com

    Katie's body has been found, but Mike's has not.

    Mike's roots in the fandom went back to the days of Alt.Toys.Transformers. He and his wife had been semi-regular fixtures at BotCon; I can remember eating at an Arby's with them one night because it was all we could find open. Pat Lee and a bunch of Dreamwave guys came in while we were there, adding a layer of surrealism to it all. Mike had a terrific sense of humor, and I wish I could remember what his comments at the time were.

    He also had a dealer table at BotCon 2009, where I can remember buying a bunch of random things on the last day of the convention.

    He will be missed.

    (I'm sorry if this is in the wrong section. Mods, feel free to move it if so.)

    Wait a minute, this isn't THE Mike Myers as in "Austin Powers" is it? Or is this some other Mike Myers I don't know about? Either way, it's sad for sure. :(
