One of my favorite people in the gaming industry just passed away. If you ever went to a U.S. gaming convention between 2007-2011 and went to the z-man booth you probably met

Nate Cockerill. He was a comedian (did second city comedy for awhile), awesome at Diplomacy winning several tournaments, a sweet guy, and I already miss him. I always looked forward to hanging with him and the Z-man crew when I went to Origins and Gen Con and when he moved to Chicago we became good friends.

I just thought everyone who met him would want to know. soblue

Re: Nate Cockerill who demo/ worked for Z-Man games passed away today.

Well dang.

I'm sorry for your loss, and I imagine a lot of other folks here will share that loss. I've passed the word to Octavian so he can place a memorial badge.

Love 'em even if a few games get scuttled from time to time.

Always unfortunate to lose a friend, and it's a loss to the hobby as well. I'm sure he got many people interested in gaming given his long association with Z-Man. Sorry to hear that and my condolences to you and his family.

So sorry to hear that Nate passed!

I got to meet him a few times over by Tom's house and once at Gen Con. He was a great guy and I know he'll be missed by many. Booo!

Nate was an amazing person and a good friend. I've started a Geeklist in Nate's honor and to share photos of his love of gaming. Please feel free to add to it!

Is that birth year of 1950 correct?

Shouldn't it be closer to 1977?

Is so, I can correct it.

I know exactly what you mean. Even when we don't know them personally, it really is losing one of our own when someone passes on who has had some kind of strong involvement in playing games.

You would have loved him. He was the biggest smart ass I have ever met. I rarely had someone who could pull the wool over my eyes, but Nate was very slick and would walk a joke up to the edge. We used to have fun taking jokes to extremes while everyone else thought we were being goofy. He was amazing.
