Some of you may recognize his name, but for those of you who don’t, Dan Green is an extremely talented voice actor who gave us the voices of Knuckles the Echidna, Professor Birch, Yugi Mutou, and a whole score of other characters and roles throughout many great movies and video games, especially the Pokemon franchise.
Not to mention the fact that he’s also an incredibly kind and friendly person.
The good news is that the day after Thanksgiving, he became the father of a beautiful pair of twins.
But the bad news is that his wife of three years and fellow voice actress passed away due to complications in the delivery.
Whether you’re a fan of his work or not, it’s not hard to imagine how difficult and painful this must be for him — suddenly losing his wife at the very beginning of the road to parenthood.
His friends and family have organized a website for fans and acquaintances to offer their thoughts, condolences, and support, here. Please don’t hesitate to offer a message for him.
Just thought I’d spread the word.
