RIP: KC Ryan (of Klordny APA)

Via James Ricklef, in the comments to a post from last week:

I hate to bring this celebration down, but I figured that most of the people coming here have some connection to the APA, Klordny.

I just want to let people know that KC Ryan, former Klordny CM, passed away recently. He had stage four cancer and died in his sleep at his parents' home, where he was in hospice.

Very sad news. KC was a great guy, and he contributed a lot to Legion fandom. He'll be missed.
KC had a blog at KC Ryan's Word Balloons, last updated in June. Here's his obituary, published in the San Jose paper.

The obituary tells us that K. C. Ryan was a successful pharmeceutical salesman, a civic leader and public speaker, and a man of great faith who faced his cancer with courage and grace. Hardly the stereotypical fanboy living in his Mother's basement. But note, he is first described as a cartoonist and comic collector. Rest in peace.

Thank you for posting the link to KC's blog. I was not aware of it before. Reading it now after he's gone was a bit of an eerie experience, but nice. Not really his "last words" but final enough. It helps. Thanks.
