Sad News: Bob Lawton passed away

The beloved founder of Funspot has passed away. He was 90. I spoke with him many times since I started going to Funspot in 2010. What a great, hard working man. RIP Bob.

    Daaaaamn. I echo what Roger said. Very sad to hear. He was a real workhorse in his day. An example of the American Dream, how he built and ran and developed the legacy of FunSpot. The arcade world lost a good one today.
