It is a sad day indeed. Dave Creek, a lead character designer for the animated series Bob’s Burgers, passed away Thursday after sustaining injuries in a sky diving accident the prior weekend. He was only 42. Creek’s colleagues have taken to Twitter to pay tribute to the late talent.
Today we tragically lost our Lead Character designer and friend, Dave Creek. A wonderfully brilliant and talented man who I can guarantee designed your favourite character on Bob’s at some point. I’ll miss you, buddy x https://t.co/NOxEq1VOGw

We lost a great artist and a great friend at Bobs today - our lead character designer Dave Creek. Here’s one of his many designs, Lady Tinsel, and one of his incredible tree houses. pic.twitter.com/5yX4fZ8ZiQ

While Creek is credited on 79 episodes of Bob’s since 2011, he also lent his talents to Central Park, Brickleberry, and Happiness is a Warm Blanket, Charlie Brown. If any solace can be taken from his passing, it’s that he died doing what he loved: he had a long history of enjoying skydiving and other adrenaline-inducing activities. Our hearts go out to his family.
