Grant Imahara, a former host of the Discovery Channel show “Mythbusters,” passed away at the age of 49 on July 13, 2020. While being known for his many projects and talents, Grant was also exceptionally well known in the cosplay and convention scene. He attended multiple conventions either as a guest or just on his own and many people got to know him; all have said the same thing… Grant leaves behind a legacy of compassion, kindness, and creativity.
His death was exceptionally unexpected and there’s unfortunately a few things we can take away from his tragic passing… Tell your loved ones plenty and often how you feel about them. Be creative and express yourself with your originality. Be compassionate to those around you; kindness is easier than hatred. Do all of these things because at the end of the day, you may lose someone before you can.
Rest in peace, Grant Imahara. It isn’t fair that you left, and the world was lucky to have you.
