Deem Bristow, Dr Eggman VA, Dead at 57

Jenifer Irwin of the webcomic “The Ruins of the Fourth Wall” recieved an email from Ryan Drummond recently, informing her of the loss of the voice-actor Deem Bristow, who was known for his work as English Dr. Eggman in the recent Sonic the Hedgehog games.

Favored among fans all over as the most “popular” voice-actor to don the character as Robotnik, Bristow died suddenly at a singles dance club on January 15th, 2005, cause of death is unknown at this time. Bristow did the voice for Eggman in the English-Dubbed versions of Sonic Adventure 1, 2, Shuffle, and most recently, Sonic Heroes.

BlazeHedgehog of MoogleMB stated that he was “…the best, most consistent voice actor to grace the Sonic games”.

Bristow is survived by his mother, Margaret, and sister, Rosalind Brady. If any donations would like to be made, please contact the Make-A-Wish Foundation, 5151 Murphy Canyon Road, Suite 110, San Diego, CA 92123, as per family request.
