Paul Steed, best known for his 3D modeling work at id software working on classics like Quake and Wing Commander, has passed away unexpectedly.

Steed had an incredibly diverse career. He is perhaps best known for his 3D modeling work, but he was also an author, a console developer, a game developer with companies like Electronic Arts and id, a keynote speaker at the 2008 Game Developer's Conference, and he also ran his own game development company, Exigent.

The news comes from The Jace Hall Show, which has a great synopsis of Steed's career as well as an episode featured where Steed was interviewed.
