Friends & Fans React to Rick May’s Death
John Patrick Lowrie, a video game voice actor, posted about his friend May after Lowrie heard of his death. In the post, he said:
I met him over thirty years ago and while we weren’t the socializing type of pals we always enjoyed running into each other at a gig or audition. Every recording session with him was always laugh-filled. Yet when the lights went down or the engineer said, “rolling” he was the consummate professional. He worked hard to get it right and we could always depend on him to deliver. In talking with his wife Diana I found out that he loved the sessions, the camaraderie, the give and take during the rehearsals and actual recording.
A fan posted a video of May wishing his friend a happy birthday while using Soldier from Team Fortress 2’s voice.
