Gary Gygax was a true inspiration, and I only regret I never had a chance to meet him in person. With respect, I have written two quatrains...

Quatrains in Requiem of the Dungeon Master--Gary Gygax

The greatest gamer have gone to the ultimate tournament with death's kiss,
leaving the world a bit brighter, but without him we shall be sorely miss.

Gary Gygax was a master creating a world of fantasy, imagination, and fun,
his imagination soared to write...

Mr. Gary Gygax was an inspiration and even a mentor of sorts for myself and many of my friends and will continue to live on in our memories. His games gave us the ability to better express ourselves and kept the larger part of us out of trouble throughout the years.

For Gary...

WEEP NOT FOR ME


Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.

He touched so many lives, his magic will always live on.

My thoughts and Prayers goes out to the Gygax family and Gary Gygax will be sadly missed but his dreams and thoughts of Dungeons & Dragons will always live on we love you Gary... From the Shepherd Family

Gary caused an awakening in my son many years ago....he remains a gamer to this day, met his wife through the fellowship and is teaching his oldest son in the genre. Recently we entered into the business directly by becoming owners of a small game shop so I know he will continue to enjoy the world of gaming. It is an integral part of his life.
