According to posts by Simone Marron and Jeff McBride, Eugene Burger has passed on to the next great mystery.

Several of my friends have, though, and they all had very high opinions of him. On top of that, I have listened to many interviews with him and he is definitely one of the few thinkers who had a really significant impact on my style and scripting choices. There's a lot of shoes to fill in the magic world these days. Our living legends are moving on rapidly and we mere mortals will have to step up our game and fill those roles for future generations.
