Default Rest in peace Stefan Karl Stefansson

...Robbie Rotten to anyone with kids.

Also played the Grinch on stage.

Diagnosed over a year ago but fought what was ultimately an impossible battle.

Just 43 and survived by his wife and children.

Copy from wife Steinunn Olina's post:

July 10, 1975 – August 21, 2018

My beloved, Stefan Karl Stefansson, 43, has passed away after battling aggressive bile duct cancer for two years. Per Stefan's wishes, there will be no funeral. His earthly remains will be scattered in secrecy in a distant ocean. Stefan's family wants to express their gratitude for the support and warmth received in recent years, and to express their deepest sympathy to the many friends and fans of Stefan Karl.

Far too young. RIP

That sounds like a good send off though

Yep, our boys used to call me Robbie Rotten if I was "mean" and told them it was bed time / time to stop playing etc.

It's been my avatar for probably 10 years or so, and Twitter etc.



There is a petition (which has been going since he was diagnosed) for a statue in his home town in Iceland.

Sad news, I remember him being diagnosed (which I think was flagged up here by yourself). Despite his dastardly character creation he seemed an upbeat, friendly chap, sharing details of his treatment to help others in a similar position.

R.i.p.

Cancer is a cnut.
