    Ah, that's sad news, to be sure.

    It's unfortunate, but considering last I'd heard of him there was a fund-raising activity going on for his medical bills (I think earlier this year?), I also feel that it was kind of expected. I can only hope he was comfortable at the end, assured people love him.

    Damn shame. I never met him, but an IRL friend of mine took an improv class or two with him and had nothing but good things to say about the experience, and about him.

    RiD01/Car Robots was huge for making me into the Transformers fan I am today, and Sky-Byte is far and away the highlight of that dub. I'm glad he's no longer suffering from his health issues and I hope he's in whatever better place might await us, but it's still a real shame that it went like this.

    RIP. 'Till all are one.

    His acting was one of the few things I liked about the 2001 series.

    Jesus...It seems like everybody's dying of cancer these days.

    RIP Peter.

    Skybyte will always be the coolest shark in town and it will always be due to you lending your voice to him.
