The Sanctum Secorum is saddened to hear of the passing of another gaming legend. It is being reported by Full Metal RPG that Rick Loomis has passed away. Rick was one of the founding members of GAMA and served as its President several times. He founded Flying Buffalo Games in 1970, publishing Tunnels & Trolls, the Nuclear War Card Game, Grimtooth’s Traps and so much more.

Worse, even though he has passed, his struggles continue. In February he was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer. Even though he is a US army veteran and qualifies for medicare, his portion of the medical bills are in the tens of thousands of dollars placing a burden on his family and threatening the future of Flying Buffalo Games.

His family has started a GoFundMe to help cover the medical bills and Bundle of Holding currently has a bundle available to help defray these costs as well.

The passing of Rick Loomis diminishes us all.
