On behalf of ROBLOX, I want to thank everyone for the huge outpouring of support, admiration, and respect for Erik Cassel. I am sad to report that Erik passed away this morning.
Erik was the original author of much of ROBLOX, and he and David Baszucki founded the company together. For all of us at ROBLOX, Erik was not just a founder, he was our friend and a continual inspiration.
We will be following up tomorrow with an official announcement. In the meantime, please post your replies and messages to this thread.
Vice President, Engineering & Operations
Erik's friend since 1997
Can you please try to moderate the users who are capitalizing on the death of Erik Cassel. People are scamming others into visiting so-called funeral places for their own personal gain, and it's just wrong!

I dislike how every time a reply-able sticky is put up, people have to spam just to be on the "First Page."
Anyway, it is indeed sad that we lost one of the founders. I'm sure he would like to see the game, his game, progressing.
