I’m at a loss. No words. I’ve been part of two big families with Grant Imahara over the last 22 years. Grant was a truly brilliant engineer, artist and performer, but also just such a generous, easygoing, and gentle PERSON. Working with Grant was so much fun. I’ll miss my friend.

I've been sitting for a while wondering how to express our collective loss of Grant Imahara. A lot of us grew up watching him create, destroy and analyse. He was the Mythbuster I wanted to be. Bye mate. Atleast you didn't decapitate anyone. pic.twitter.com/DMGIeEYRpM
