Python Vladimir Anghelo, graphic artist and game designer who worked on classic titles Pin-Bot and Joust, has passed away.

This news comes via friend Paul Kiefert, in an update to Anghelo's GoFundMe page, where the artist and designer was seeking donations to cover the cost of his medical treatment for cancer.

"I can say with 100 percent certainty that with the help of this great Pinball Community we were able deliver great joy and happiness during his final time on this earth and that the legend most people knew will continue to be honored for generations to come," Kiefert wrote.

According to this post at Pinball News -- which contains entertaining anecdotes and photos of Angelho from a happier time -- he had been struggling with his illness for several years, and died at home.
