Aaron Purmort discovered he had a terminal brain tumor soon after he met his wife, Nora McInerny. Since the diagnosis, they have been sharing details of their struggle with the world through their blog myhusbandstumor.com.

And before he died, the couple decided to co-write his humorous and touching obituary, which was published over the weekend in the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Purmort, Aaron Joseph age 35, died peacefully at home on November 25 after complications from a radioactive spider bite that led to years of crime-fighting and a years long battle with a nefarious criminal named Cancer, who has plagued our society for far too long.

"I've never laughed and cried more in one sitting, but I'm so glad we got to do this," Nora wrote on the blog.

The end of the obit also states that he is survived by his "first wife Gwen Stefani," which Nora tweeted about following his death.

The family set up a crowdfunding page to raise money for medical costs and to help support his wife and child.

An NPC named Robin has been found. WoWhead, asite that scours the game code for new additions, picked up three instances of the tribute in a recent update for the Warlords of Draenor beta build - a male human, a female human, and a blue genie.

This model has been used before as a boss in a dungeon, but the idea is that this version of the model will most likely transform into other Robin Williams' characters.
