Rick May, Star Fox and Team Fortress Voice Actor, Dies Following Contracting Coronavirus

Rick May has passed away following a short time with COVID-19. The voice actor was best-known in video-game circles for being the voice of Peppy Hare and Andross in Star Fox 64 as well as the Soldier in Team Fortress 2.

ABG has learned that Rick May, a talented actor and performer, has passed away at the age of 79.

His passing comes as a result of a stroke he suffered in February. May was moved to a nursing home to receive care. Unfortunately, he contracted the COVID-19 Coronavirus whilst there. After being moved to a Swedish hospital, May passed away due to the virus.

Rick May may best be recognisable to video game players as the voice behind a few notable titles of yore. Back in the 1990s, May voiced Peppy Hare and Andross in Star Fox 64 on the Nintendo 64 gaming console. May also lent his voice to Genghis Khan and the Narrator in Age of Empires II. He also brought “The Soldier” to life in Team Fortress II.
