It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of Patrick Roberts.
For those that did not know him, he was the Art Show Director for Dragon*Con for a number of years. He was the high energy man that made the Dragon*Con Art Show what it is today.
From Dragon*Con Art Show Directors, John and Anne Parise in an e-mail to the members of http://groups.yahoo.com/group/SciFiFantasyHorrorSpace_ArtShows/:
"Please remember Patrick and his family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Patrick has been a driving force for Fandom and the DragonCon Art Show these many years. He has always had big ideas and passion about all things Fandom and Art. The DragonCon Art Show is the Show it is today because of his hard work and dedication. We will miss his ridiculous analogies, his loud laugh and outrageous ideas. He lived life head on and never apologized for it. We will miss him. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at DCArtDirectors@comcast.net.
John and Anne Parise"
