Stephen Hillenburg, the creator of SpongeBob SquarePants died yesterday at age 57.
As a 41 year old man, I might tell you that I'm very familiar with SpongeBob because of my two young daughters, but that would be a lie.
I'm a huge cartoon fan is the truth. SpongeBob is one of my favorites. It's extremely creative, doesn't play by the rules and can be fun for kids and adults both.
This is truly a sad day for fans like myself because the candle has been snuffed out of someone insanely creative. Stephen Hillenburg announced in March of 2017 he had ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease.
People like this are few and it's a shame when we lose creative minds like this. If you've never seen SpongeBob SquarePants, take the time to check out a few episodes on Nickelodeon or just google some episodes. It will put a smile on your face, I promise.
Today is Giving Tuesday, a day set aside to give back to charity. There's a ton of great organizations to give to today if you're going to give. If you so feel the need, check out the ALS Association and consider donating in Mr. Hillenburg's memory.
