This news has come from his younger sister, who has stated that he died of pneumonia in April.

drsleep, who is one of my elder brothers, passed away suddenly and unexpectedly about 5 months ago. Thank you to all who have thought of him enough to inquire about him.

Sincerely,

drsleeps's little 'lil' sister

Godspeed, and may you rip and tear your way to the gates of heaven.

I wouldn't even know how to map for Doom if not for the tutorial he wrote ages ago. I'd always wondered whatever happened to him...it's a shame it had to be this.

His levels were some of the first I ever played when I had an old Demon Gate CD. Then I played his works in the Master Levels and PSX Final Doom. The last I remember reading about him was when he had his website up. He was working on the next entry to his Canto series (I think it was called Lethe) with the original Doom Builder. Heh, I was knee-deep in jDoom/Doomsday and New Doom during that time. Damn time flies.

Rest in peace, dude.

This is a shock, I really love his map in Episode 4 of Ultimate Doom. Rest in peace.

This is really tragic. Dr. Sleep was one of the foundational members of the community, if I remember correctly. (I'm a little younger than the old guard, but I've been around for a while.) Rest in peace.

Seconded. E4M7 is the only other map besides E4M1 that I remember well from all of the maps in Episode 4. I remember poking at his map in Doom Builder 2 to see how he did those fast doors and stuff like that for half the day when I was younger and I had a hard time understanding how he did it. I've never played any of his other maps I don't think but just that one map alone made me have so much respect for him. May he rest in peace.

I never knew the guy, but this sucks. :( My condolences for his family, and the fans that he left behind.

Dr. Sleep's guide for Doom Builder was how I first learned to make levels. RIP
