Rick May, the voice of Andross & Peppy in Star Fox 64, has passed away at the age of 79 due to the coronavirus

We have some sad news to share with you tonight. Rick May, known as the voice of Andross and Peppy Hare in Nintendo‘s Star Fox 64 and the Soldier in Valve’s Team Fortress 2, has passed away at the age of 79. May had suffered a stroke in February, and he was moved into a nursing home for rehabilitation. There, he unfortunately caught the COVID-19 coronavirus and was moved to a Swedish hospital, which is where he would be taken care of until he passed away. May was a teacher at Rekindle School, and it was their official site that announced his passing. Their site says that “if you would like to send condolences to his family, if you send them to rekindleschool@gmail.com, we’ll pass them along”.

    1. The voice of Andross in Zero wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t as menacing as May’s performance in 64. I think the writing was a little better though, in Zero. When you compare “You will die, just like your father” against “Opposing me is truly… A death sentence. Just ask your *father*, eh?”, the latter feels more personal and antagonistic, like a taunt.

  1. I can’t wait until the day I hear this “virus” passed away. It’s taking SO many people. TOO many people. I want life to go back to normal again. Even though my life wasn’t so great when it was normal either. But at least there wasn’t an invisible enemy going around killing people. R.I.P. Rick May.

  3. He was 79 and had a stroke, so calm down guys! He would have died within the next 5 years anyway. This was not a tragic death by any means.
