In Memory of Patrick Roberts
February 6, 2008 12:59 am
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.
The Renderosity Community extends our deepest sympathies and best wishes to Patrick's family and friends. He will be greatly missed. We welcome the Renderosity Community to post their farewell wishes, and, of course, share any thoughts or memories of Patrick.

I want to tell all of you how much it means to Patrick's family that so many people thought so much of him and took the time to express their condolences. While I can't speak for Felicia or Derrick, I can speak for myself by expressing a deep gratitude. patrick and I were brothers by the same Father. We did not grow up together, but I enjoyed the times he and I were able to talk "tech". He dedicated so much of himself towards his doctorate and was finally able to achieve his goal by going to JPL. I have always been proud of his accomplishments. We shared a love for the space sciences. He pursued it as a career. I chose just to watch and enjoy. His efforts towards making your events what they were have remained unknown to me until today. I must admit that I am a little surprised, but not totally. It seems like something he would enjoy. Again, let me thank all of you for the expressions you have made. At this time arrangements for a memorial service have not been finalized. Those of you who know Felicia I'm certain will be advised. Many thanks, John Roberts
