    I had the pleasure of working with him a couple of years back on a film project i was a part of. Today i learned of his passing from a mutual friend. My condolences go out to his family.

    We lost a great actor today, poor Quinn, he had such a nice voice, it will be sad to see TF4 without him.
    How did he die?

    Man, that's sad. Dino was awesome, and a large part of that was his voice. How did he die?

    He made Mirage a successful character in DOTM. This could mean Mirage won't be in TF4, because nobody could voice him as good as Francesco Quinn.

    No official source that I've found so far. His wiki page was updated with it stating he had a stroke today. Since that's user updated can't be credited as a source. If true, very sad.

    I'm not sure I believe this...

    But shit, if it's true, I'll be sad as hell. :(  He did a great job with Dino.

    Not to remind you, but remember rumors of James Avery being dead, that could be the same thing here,
