We are profoundly sad to learn of the passing of our friend and former chief executive officer, J. Paul Raines,” Mike Mauler, GameStop CEO, said in a statement. “His spirit is woven into the fabric of our company and the entire GameStop family mourns this loss. Paul was a brilliant man and remarkable visionary, as well as a compassionate, caring and inspirational community leader who was beloved by many. Paul cared deeply about his work and his GameStop family, but his greatest love was for his family. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to them and all those whose lives and hearts Paul touched during his journey.

Raines left GameStop in November last year, after he had been diagnosed of previously disclosed medical issue. In addition, Raines had previously been treated for a cancerous brain tumour in 2014. Therefore, on behalf of the KeenGamer team, I would like to express our sincerest condolences for the family and friends of Paul Raines.
