    I have personally never met him, but I am a big fan his work. As others have mentioned, it is terrible to lose someone at such a young age. My thoughts are with his family in the days to come.

    Let his spark join the matrix, the greatest of Cybertron.

    Guy gave a lot to us. Fandom's a little darker for the loss, and I can't even imagine what it's like for his family.

    Rest in peace.

    Man, this is really sad. TFM was truly an asset to our community. He will be missed.

    I keep this photo of his Menasor in my photobucket account. It's my favorite kitbash/custom ever.

    Damn he was talented.

    Damn, may Bill rest in piece. I remember when I first saw his customs many years ago. I was always excited when he revealed a new piece he was working on, and I never followed kitbashing. He was incredibly talented to say the least.

    probably the first time I've ever cried for someone I've never met. RIP to the granddaddy of all kitbashers, a father, son, and husband, and an inspiration.

    This is very sad, so young, the guy was a genius when it came to kitbashing toys.
    He will be missed. I am still shocked at this news. It is very sad indeed.

    Though I never heard of him much, it must have been quite a blow for his family. Give my regards to them...

    i hate it when young guys who have fantastic talent get taken away from us. most of them are musicians, like bob marley, jimi hendrix, stevie ray vaughn, shawn lane, randy rhoads.... but this definitely weighs heavy on my heart.

    Well having not really knew the man in anyway, I can't really say anything from a "friend" perspective, but this is just too sad for words. I've seen his work, and it's true what they say:
    "the good die young"...................in this case though, this is way too young to go.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who has been touched by this horrible tragedy..............Rest In Peace.....may the Lord welcome you home..

    Truely sad news. Tfmaster is probably the one person who has 'wowed' the entire TF community over and over again. My thoughts go out to his wife and son. He will be sadly missed
