Pac Man Inventor Passes Away

I didn't catch his name, but I just saw a headline on a news story that the creator of Pac Man passed away. It's a sad day for video game history. Makes me want to buy one of the Pac Man games that are out right now.

He didn't create it, but he was the head of Namco.

Yeah, I don't know why they are using the term 'father of Pac-Man' or worse 'creator of Pac-Man' for the CEO of Namco.
