I really don't know what to say.
This is devastating news. We always turned to him when we had problems and he was always willing to help; he was like the soul of TR.
This must be a huge loss to those who personally knew him and my thoughts are with those who did.
I feel so sad.

Oh no! This can't be I can't believe this!
He was one of my few friends here.
I am shocked..

What an awesome person he was. Always eager to help. I don't know what to say, really.

I am sorry for your, and our, loss...

Oh, this is really sad news.

Thank you so much for telling us Devon. It means a lot.

rr was also active in the Level Editor section. Not as a builder but as a player and his comments were always posted in a good way.

May he rest in peace.

This is so, so sad... I had noticed Richard's persistent and unexplained absence since his last post in late June, and I was becoming increasingly alarmed and worried for him. And now I have just discovered this thread, and like everyone else, I want to extend my profound sympathies you to and your family, Devon.

I feel like I have just lost a family member. As I state in my own profile for these forums, I "worship at the altar" of bug scientist rr_carroll. It was Richard who told me of the existence of Tomb Raider Forums. And whenever I visited the forums, my first business was to check on his latest posts, and get caught up on his latest discoveries. Time and time again, he would have Lara perched up in some inaccessible area of the game, achieved without cheats--- just by ingenious use of the corner bug and other glitches.

Like me, he was one of the forum's older members, and perhaps that was part of the special kinship I felt with him. I can only agree with the commenters so far, that he was especially kind, helpful, friendly, generous, and intelligent, and I will always feel his absence here going forward.

Richard once posted a photo of himself, from his California driver's license. I will share it here for those of you who never saw it:



Rest in peace, Richard. These forums will never be the same without you. ~Your friend, Patrick...

This is sad news and a great loss for his family, friends and the TR community.
My condolences.

Gone but not forgotten.
May he rest in peace.

Very sorry to hear of your loss

rr_carroll got the highest honour of being called 'the bug scientist' on this forum, being really deep into exploring by every type of bug move possible. only four others on the website so far, I believe got a special title.

I on the other hand, always got Lara stuck in a wall attempting the corner bug, I was never good at bugging.

rr_carroll like myself, loved to explore the inaccessible areas in all TR games, it became an obsession, as Tomb Raider was much more than 'just getting through a game' and we and others spent many a thread discussing and experimenting to solve TR's interesting subjects.

Now he goes into the beyond before us all, and I bet he is up there exploring round the next inaccessible bend, using all methods to do so....

He will be sadly missed. Farewell.

Well said, Chi... that's exactly what I envision, too...
