Obituary: Former GameStop CEO Julian Paul Raines has passed away

March 5, 2018 | By Chris Kerr

Report: Julian Paul Raines, the former CEO of video game retailer GameStop, has passed away. 

As noted by Fortune, Raines left GameStop a few months ago due to illness, but during his tenure helped the company tackle a number of challenges, such as the rise of digital and declining used sales.

His health troubles have been well-documented, and Raines temporarily stepped down in 2014 while he sought treatment for a cancerous brain tumor. Despite undergoing preventative chemotherapy, Raines suffered a relapse earlier this year, forcing him to tender his permanent resignation. 

Although GameStop has yet to confirm the news, employees and friends have been paying their respects online.
