Just got some sad news. Robert Hill. (Man on the right.) Had just passed away in the hospital on December 14. If you don't know who he is. He was one of the very first fursuiters in the fandom way back in the 80s when it was slowly taking off in California.

A few months back. I was able to sit down with him for lunch and got to learn about him and the crafts he had done a long long time ago before I was born. Not many people may not know him. But he was pretty much the father of fursuitting. Rest Easy Robert

And to add to this thread. I only met up this man once. He did not look good in health. and a few months later he passes away. Be thankful for those you have in your life. You may never know when you'll loose someone.

I remember seeing him suit at early conventions! Our fandoms graymuzzles are getting old indeed.

If .. if it wasn't for Robert.. there would be not a lot of great things done in this fandom. He made and wore fursuits of high quality and he was also a great artist. He would lament to me that he couldn't draw anymore because his hands weren't steady. Farewell my friend :(

I am very saddened to hear this. Robert Hill was an idol of mine when getting into the fandom, and his suits inspired me to want to make my own. I was lucky enough to know him in person, and I will miss him :(
