    Default R.I.P Bob Zak, founder of Gwen Media

    I saw the news posted this morning in a few Yahoo groups I am a member of.

    I never knew or met the man, but do know a few people that did and by all accounts he was a great guy and nice person.

    This from the Gwen Media site:
    http://gwenmedia.com/gwenmedia/index2.html

    It is with great sorrow that the GwenMedia family announces the passing of company founder, Robert Zahurak, known to friends as Bob Zak. Robert's body was found at the GwenMedia Studios in the San Fernando Vallery, Monday evening, June 27th. Late for a dinner engagement, calls to him went unanswered, which prompted concern. Bob was 51 years of age. Cause of death has been attributed to heart failure. He will be greatly missed by one and all.

    The entire GwenMedia staff wishes to extend their thanks to everyone who has telephoned or e-mailed their condolesences. It was Bob's wish that the video/DVD company he created continue strongly in his absence, which it will. A planned memorial service will be announce as soon as date and location is secure. Please look to GwenMedia.Com for further details.

    Bob Zahurak hired me to work for Gwen Media as their full time Internet marketing specialist barely two weeks ago.

    I had known him for many years personally. He was the most stauchly supportive sponsor of the IAR since its' inception. He was a "nice guy" and he cared about the condition of Rubberists ....I don't know how else to say that any better.

    His influence on the world of fetish was significant and I think it will be sincerely missed by many people.

    A great man has passed on.

    Good bye, Bob. We will miss you.

    What can I say? It is always sad to hear of the loss of people who were instrumental in establishing the fetish.

    I had the privilege of meeting Bob at Dom Con earlier this year. We chatted at a private party that weekend and we shared a common enthusiasm for the articles of latex clothing I had brought with me for a photo shoot at Gwen Media on the Monday following the party. He and I bonded in friendship.

    I am greatly saddened at the loss of a new friend. My most sincere regrets to his wife and family.

    That is shocking news. I am very saddened.
    He was a real supporter of the community and produced movies far above the "norm". He will be sorely missed.
    My deepest sympathies go to his family.

    This is just one of those things that you don't quite expect. I'll have to pass it along to my various friends some of whom knew him personally.
