May, who voiced the Soldier in Team Fortress 2, passed away on Apri 13 due to complications involving COVID-19 after recovering from a stroke. He was 79 years old. He had voiced the Soldier not only in the game but in multiple TF shorts.

The statues in Team Fortress 2 will remain up throughout the month of May in honor of the voice actor. If players approach these statues and stand near them for a bit, they will hear some Soldier voice lines.
