President of Nintendo - Satoru Iwata
My deepest condolences to the family, friends and everyone who looked up to and admired Satoru Iwata for all that he has done in life. At only 55 years of age... You will be missed.
Rest in Peace

Iwata was great.

He was genuine in a way that few other CEOs can match.

I will miss him and his directs.

RIP Iwata.

Your Programming feats were truly incredible, but you'll always be remembered for the love you put into video games.

Much can be learned about life by the way Iwata handled himself in business.

Respect & RIP

God Bless.
