Dave Creek, the lead character designer for Fox’s “Bob’ Burgers,” died Thursday, succumbing to injuries he sustained in a sky diving accident last week.

Creek’s death was first reported by CartoonBrew.com and then confirmed by his colleagues on the Fox animated series.

“If you love Bob’s Burgers, you loved Dave Creek,” “Bob’s Burgers” writer Wendy Molyneux tweeted Thursday. “He was an adventurous funny outgoing amazing artist and one of the most incredible, interesting people I ever met. I often thought that Dave really knew how to live, and I wish he got to live some more. Rest In Peace, buddy.”

Bernard Derriman tweeted: “We lost a great artist and a great friend at Bobs today – our lead character designer Dave Creek. Here’s one of his many designs, Lady Tinsel, and one of his incredible tree houses.”

“100% devastated to lose wonderful, sweet, super-talented Dave Creek today. Sending all of my love to you. Fly free and I hope to see you again someday, on the other side,” Brooke Keesling wrote in an Instagram post. “Update: Dave had a skydiving accident on Sunday, and passed away this morning after putting up a good fight for his life. I didn’t mean to be vague by not posting how he passed originally.”

Representatives for Fox broadcast network and “Bob’s Burgers” studio 20th Television did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment Friday.
