    [Moderator's comment: Gary Stern appears to be alive and well.]

    Hello I am Gary's Daughter, Martha.

    I wanted to share with the community that Gary Stern has officially passed on. Last night he died after an apparent cardiac arrest. I along with the family is devastated, and I ask for your privacy during this time, as word will spread quickly. I know he was very well known within this community, so I know I wanted to break this news to you all.

    The services will be held privately and for family and friends only.

    Terrible news. My condolences.

    My condolences to the whole Stern family. Thanks for all the love that you generated through pinball.

    #13 3 years ago

    Wow, if true this is sad. I assume it is true.

    I agree. RIP Gary

    So sorry to hear of your loss.

    #16 3 years ago

    What? I was just with him last Thursday in Denver.

    This is shocking news... My deepest sympathy to his family.

    #17 3 years ago

    Horrible day for the hobby. So sorry for your loss.

    #18 3 years ago

    This is very sad news. Gary had more to do with keeping pinball alive during the dark years than anyone.

    Thanks Gary! And RIP.

    Please shut this thread down. I've heard Gary is fine as of 15 seconds ago.

    #22 3 years ago

    Very sorry for your loss.

    #23 3 years ago

    Trace this asshole - please.

    Just as I thought. A troll thread. Lock this!

    Quoted from ifpapinball:

    Please shut this thread down. I've heard Gary is fine as of 15 seconds ago.

    Holy shit. I hope so. What a sick joke. Please IP trace the OP.

    #26 3 years ago

    What a shock. I never met the man, and don't own any Stern machines. But in photos, stories, and promos I've seen he looked like the definition of "young at heart".

    He's certainly left a monumental legacy and I've enjoyed the Sterns I've played. We all owe a debt of thanks and gratitude. Make sure your beer seals are tight and pour a 40 tonight...

    My condolences.

    #27 3 years ago

    That is a terrible joke is it's true.

    #29 3 years ago

    That is awful, awful news. My sincerest condolences to the Stern family for their loss during this tough time.

    Gary was such a valued member of the pinball industry and hobby and will certainly be missed. He kept the game alive in some of its darkest times and we might not be seeing such a renaissance now had Stern Pinball not kept on producing back in the 2000s.

    So sad. RIP Gary.

    #30 3 years ago

    This is terrible news. Please pass on our condolences to your family. Your dad did many great things for the pinball hobby. Without him pinball would look very different today.

    #31 3 years ago
    Quoted from cosmokramer:

    Shouldnt this be confirmed by someone other yhan an anonymous poster?

    Exactly. Everyone just immediately assumes its true without looking it up or any real confirmation? Haven't we learned anything?

    #32 3 years ago

    If this is a hoax its in extremely poor taste.

    #33 3 years ago

    If this is a joke, they deserve the wrath of the whole pinball community.

    Steve

    Quoted from frolic:

    Holy shit. I hope so. What a sick joke. Please IP trace the OP.

    #34 3 years ago

    this is a hoax!!!! sheeeesh!!!!

    #35 3 years ago

    There is no mention of this on the Stern Pinball site.

    Not funny. No idea why somebody would stoop so low.

    #46 3 years ago

    Mods should lock OP account, IP trace them, then delete this thread entirely.

    #47 3 years ago

    The OP should be banned and I sincerely hope they die of cardiac arrest sometime very soon. You have to be a real tool to post something like this.

    #48 3 years ago

    First post of a new account is fake...wow never saw that coming.

    #49 3 years ago

    Wow, how can someone stoop this low? What a sick and disgusting joke.

    #50 3 years ago

    I have a suspicion the OP is "known" to pinside, likely already banned.
