Earlier this week, we reported that the courts have suspended the use of life-support for elderly voice actor and DJ Casey Kasem, who is suffering from Lewy body disease. We here at Seibertron.com regret to inform the public that Mr. Kasem has passed away earlier today at the age of 82.

During his career as a voice actor, Mr. Kasem is most famously known for lending his voice as Shaggy in Scooby Doo. As for his roles in The Transformers, Mr. Kasem voiced Cliffjumper, Bluestreak, Doctor Arkeville, Teletraan I, and the Dread slaves from the episode "Chaos".

We here at Seibertron.com offer our most sincere condolences to the friends and family of Mr. Kasem.

Good, at least he's not in pain anymore and died with at least a bit of his dignity intact.

He was awesome, and did not deserve to degenerate like this, damn dementia eats your very being until all that is left of you is a shriveled up husk of a body that's artificially kept running long after you've left it.

RIP Shaggy.

I WAS going to report about Casey's death, but I decided to wait it out.

Such a terrible thing to see anyone suffer through a debilitating illness like that. I will always remember him as Bluestreak, Cliffjumper, Shaggy, and the friendly voice on the radio spinning the countdown of hits every week. Growing up in the 80s and hearing his voice on the radio or as a voice actor in a different show was like running into a familiar friend. I think the last thing I remember hearing him on was Mystery Incorporated as the voice of Shaggy's father just a few years ago.

America's Top 40 man, Cliffjumper, Shaggy and a host of other things will be missed indeed. Looks like a transition into a new era.
