Biography[edit | edit source]
The latter part of Angus' life was consumed with his efforts to secure treatment for his two year old son, Teddy, who was diagnosed with autism in December of 2006.
Children with autism respond to early intervention, but in many states, like Angus' home state of Wisconsin, there is an unfortunately long waiting list for aid in acquiring the expensive therapy; and therapy is often critically delayed through periods when it could be of the most benefit to the child.
As part of his effort to change this and the unhelpful current policies of most medical insurance companies, both for his own son and other children, Angus created a poster with his illustration of his son as he pictured him, as child trapped inside the barriers of his own mind, without voice.

Upon their hearing of his abrupt and premature passing on, fans and players alike were shocked, distressed, and deeply saddened by the news.
