Just received the news:
You'll be missed Glen. A tremendous loss.I just wanted to write this post to let everyone in the CG community know that we've lost one of the greats today. Glen Angus, known as gangus on CGTalk, died today from apparent complications due to an aneurysm. I worked with Glen for many years at Raven Software, and he was a great friend to me and just about anyone who knew him. I know Glen was a very active and popular artist on these forums, so I thought it would be the right thing to do to let you all know as soon as possible. Please join me in wishing the best for his wife and two children during this time of loss. Rest in peace Glen, you were the best.
Additionally from Jason:
CGS has posted an article on Glen's life and art:Hey guys, all Glen's friends and family appreciate the outpouring of support from the community. Glen's best friends Dan Hay and Mitch Cotie, as well as Raven Software are doing whatever they can to take care of the family and all the financial arrangements stemming from his passing.
The best way we can all support Glen's wife and children is contribue whatever we can to The Glen Angus Memorial Fund:
Glen Angus Memorial Fund
c/o Park Bank
P.O. Box 8969
Madison, WI 53791
Any amount will help.
A link to the Raven Software "Passing of Glen Angus" page can be found here.

Wow, it's a damn shame...
Best of luck to his family.
Couldn't believe it when I heard. This is very shocking news. His artworks were truly inspiring and his Victory Gals thread was one of the best I have seen in this place.
He will be missed by everyone who got to see his art and talent.
Deeply condolences to his family.
I still can't even believe the news. Glen was a good coworker, and a dear friend. He always listened to me when I had something on my mind, and his advice meant a lot to me. I looked up to his skills as an artist, and his great sense of humor. I am ashamed that we never got to finish our chat from Monday morning. There is so much shit I wish I could tell him now-
I wanted to thank him for helping me out with loadscreen practice on MUA.
I wanted to thank him for helping me get better at texturing game models.
I wanted to thank him for all the good times we had at takara, pf chang's,
and at Dan's house.
I wanted, more than anything, to thank him for helping me when I was down.
Glen, I miss ya buddy
I just saw this, very sorry to hear it. Nobody should go too early. My condolences to his family.
I loved his personal artwork of the victory gal series.....
My condolences to his family and friends.

This is horrible....
Seriously i'm teary eyed right now...
R. I. P. Glen Angus
condolences to the family and friends. You will be deeply missed...
Condolences to all his friends and family. He was very talented and will be missed.
man this is sad news...
The Victory Gals series was one of my all time favourites on CA.
Rest in peace!
This is very sad news.
I dealt with Glen recently in a work capacity, and he always came over as polite, generous and professional.
I'm sure his friends will miss him terribly, but I can't imagine how awful this his for his young family. My heart goes out to his young children and his wife.
oh man, thats terrible news. I loved his artwork, so amazing, and really unique. I'm really gonna miss seeing art like those amazing updates on the Victory Gals. I didnt know him, but my heart goes out to his family. Hope they can see this through alright.

What a shock... He was still posting only a short time ago... Too sad.
R.I.P Mr. Angus.
So...shocking. I thought his artwork was so inspirational.
I like many others enjoyed such threads as the Victory Gals one.
This is an immense loss, and very sad.
Love to his family in this difficult time.
Gangus, you're sadly missed, wherever you may be right now, plz take care....
.....and keep painting. No excuses.
I fell in love with his work when I saw Filling Valhalla, and since then been amazed by his visions. And like myself he prolly influenced alot of people with his amazing work. The body might die, but the man and his ideas live on in our future works.
Best wishes to his loved ones.

wow. kinda shocking.
his work was really inspirational. he was a great member of this community, and I noticed that he was always more than ready and willing to share his process and knowledge with the those less experienced.
he'll definitely be missed.
