A Hero among us – Rob Phoenix (Yves Robert Schaaf) has passed away at age 38

Our dear friend, acquaintance, fellow geek and cosplayer, actor and accomplished artist has left us on Saturday, the 3rd December 2016. At the young age of 38, Yves Robert Schaaf, also known as Rob Phoenix, has not only done so much for the Luxembourgish indie movie and the cosplay domain, but also tried to make the world a better place with his kindness.

There’s a huge void where Yves/Rob Phoenix, known for his friendliness and wit, left us and his presence will be remembered.

At every geek meeting,

every future Luxcon edition,

every movie event,

every “Kniddelen” stand he loved so much.

The entire GLL team’s sincere condoleances go to the family and friends of the deceased.

We miss you!
