We received some sad news that Mark (Grimace) passed away today from cancer (July 16) at Research Medical Hospital in Kansas City at the age of 49.

He is now one with the Force. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Mark Grimshaw's family and loved ones. He was a wonderful member of our community and we were better for him being here.

Please feel free to post any condolences for him in this thread, which is where he was very active and provided us with some great jokes and laughs over the years with his "Karaoke in the Cantina" comic strip.

Wow! Such sad news. His cantina spots were always great and something I looked forward to. I didn't know him personally, but his humor will always remain here on Yakface. My thoughts are with his family.

Extremely saddened by this news. Mark brightened my day on many occasions, sometimes when it was desperately needed. He was a great member of our community, who made this hobby truly enjoyable. May the Force be with you buddy.

Very sad news. I never really knew Mark or talked to him like so many did, but his strips never failed to brighten up my day. He will be sorely missed. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Mark's friend, John aka "Terp," was kind enough to pass along some great photos of Mark for us to share.

If anyone would like to contact John "Terp" directly, you can do so as he has graciously passed that along to us - jterpkosh@movalley.usta.com
