“You saw the best in all of us and brought it out,” Borderlands 3 voice actor Brian Olvera said on Twitter.
“You treated me like family, and called me your little brother. You motivated & inspired us. Our bond & friendship these past few years is something I will treasure forever. I love you, Brad Venable, I miss you brother.”
Voice acting vet Terry Daniel also posted, saying: “Very sad to have lost one of the nicest and most giving talents in the voiceover business. Brad Venable was a sweetheart of a man and would help you with anything you needed. Ridiculously talented and a real treasure. R.I.P. Brad. I will miss our chats.”
