I learned yesterday from Rich Hamilton that Jim Cobb, veteran game reviewer for many decades, and his wife, Angela, passed away due to the flu. She passed 4 days after him.

I met them both at Tiller Con I. Jim had good questions for the various game series question and answer sessions we held there. His wife was right there with him. They were a devoted couple.

This thread on the Grognards site had more information:

I knew Jim had passed, but not his wife, also.

Very sad.

I played a few games vs Jim, over the years and met him at Tillercons.
