Today, we have some very unfortunate news for fans of Rick May – the voice behind Peppy Hare and Andross in Star Fox 64.
May has sadly passed away after contracting the COVID-19 coronavirus, while he was still rehabilitating from a stroke at a nursing home. This information was relayed by Rekindle School – an independent arts/film/acting institution where May worked as a teacher in the past few years.
Besides Peppy and Andross, May also voiced the Soldier from Team Fortress II – along with smaller roles in other games and films.
Our deepest condolences go out to May’s family and their loss. As always, we urge everyone to remain safe from possible infection and abide by any stay-home orders for the sake of their health.
