Our community has lost a visionary and an amazing human being.
To work with him was a blast and a fascinating adventure.

Thanks mate, it was a great experience.  
You left far too early and you will be missed.

Let's all raise a glass to Lester!

We have lost a great man with an even greater sense of humour. Lester and his fearless Playmonaut will be missed. Seems fitting to have both a drink and a pipe.

It is very sad to lose Lester. The Lohan project was a wonderfully crazy idea that Lester put a huge amount of effort into. The PARIS project was a huge success and a fantastic idea.

I never met him in person, but I greatly enjoyed all our chats and planning sessions about Lohan.

I didn't know Lester, but the sentiment expressed by the people above (and their reputations) is a reliable sign that the industry lost a good man. For me, the sad part is what he's going to miss over the next couple years.
Condolences to his family and friends, and thank you for sharing here and bringing some new light to his work.
