    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO. He did so many voices of characters when I was growing up. From Rad, to Hot Shot, to Cole, to Goku.


    Oh man, I’m heartbroken.

    Sad news to hear today! I met him at LA Comic Con in 2017 and he was a super nice guy! He gave me a signed Hotshot print for no charge after signing some Cybertron Hot Shot toys I brought for him. Died at such a young age, RIP. :(

    Yikes. Just heard him in the simuldub of YashaHime and I did notice his voice sounded very off compared to how it usually is as Miroku.

    Wow! What happened?

    I first heard him as Trowa Barton in Gundam Wing, then Miroku in Inuyasha. I've heard his Goku from the Westwood DBZ dub, and while I prefered Kelamis, he was still a very solid Goku.

    Cybertron Hot Shot was my favorite Hot Shot in both iterations... I\'m planning on making the best possible iteration of Hot Shot based on C.D. Hot Shot... when I do... it will be for you, boss man. RIP Kirby. Thanks for everything... God, I hate this year...

    I\'m not really a fan of the Unicron Trilogy, (Definitely miss him for Van in Escaflowne, Trowa, in Gundam Wing, Jason in Kong the Animated series, just to name a few...) but this is truly sad. For some reason I thought he was younger than I, but in fact just 3 years older. Still would have been my contemporary. Definitely sad news, a very talented actor and kind man from all accounts. My deepest condolences to his family.

    I...don’t even know what to say. Not only is this sudden, but it’s a loss of an actor who was very involved in series from my childhood. Rest In Peace

    That’s heartbreaking. Hot Shot was always one of my favorites as a kid. And I was really into Ninjago when it came out so Cole is another childhood character for me. And I doubt anyone is gonna remember Acceleracers but Shirako was one of my favorites there. I can't believe he’s gone. So young. Way too soon. Prayers definitely going to his family.
