[personal profile] sirfox called me late last night with the news of Albert Temple's passing, although there had been people noting his absence on LiveJournal and elsewhere for days with concern.

To summarize what I've said elsewhere:

Ryan Dewalt reports on FurAffinity that Albert Temple, creator of the long-running and popular furry webcomic Gene Catlow, has passed away at 59 due to natural causes.

Gene Catlow began in 2000 and covered a wide variety of topics including race ("species") relations, tech humor, and Albert's particular humble and loving approach to the world.

Albert's messages of love, tolerance, and good humor in the face of adversity will be sorely missed.


One of the kindest people I ever met, with a wit that was quick but never cruel. Very grateful for the chance to have known him. In the flurry of Twitter messages that went by this morning I saw someone describe him as "the Fred Rogers of furry," and it really does suit him.

Albert and I were not close, but he was the kind of person who made you feel like you were good friends just be being in the same room, and I like to think that if we'd been in the same circles more often we would have been.

Godspeed, sir, and hoping we'll see you again.
