Curt Vendel Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Curt Vendel.

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

One more Curt Vendel story. Our last interaction was in April of this year – after news broke of Yet More Atari Console Stupidity, Curt sent me some design files of his whack at the “groundbreaking” new Atari console design, so people could make their own and not get scammed.

One of the best qualities of Curt Vendel was that he could and would often call bullshit on perpetuated misconceptions of Atari’s history, or equally discard any knowledge he believed wholesale if it was proven wrong. All in the service of historical accuracy and truth. (Right)

Here is the last I saw #Atari historian Curt Vendel RIP, in between ⁦@KaySavetz⁩ and ⁦@moorejh⁩ at #VCFEast2019. He was such a wealth of Atari memories, he will be missed. I think he’s asking me ‘who the hell are you?’ in this photo. I can’t believe he’s gone at 53.

RIP to my friend Curt Vendel. When I saw his Atari website (Prototypes and Vapourwares) back in 1996 I immediately contacted him and we have been friends ever since. We did some stuff over the years, tried to set-up an online auction site for gamers called Bidiots! –

Sad news about Curt Vendel – I liked him, he was one of the proper Atari historians, chatted with him a few times when I was posting out ST stuff I was restoring, he would sometimes take an interest in the stuff I had

Very well respected #Atari chap – RIP mate .

Very sad to learn of the death of Curt Vendel, aged 53.

Curt, a well-known figure in the Atari community, was an avid collector and historian. In 1988 he founded the Atari History Museum and also wrote the book “Atari Inc.: Business is Fun” with Marty Goldberg.

Far too young

Today is a sad day for gaming historians such as myself. I just learned that Curt Vendel who co-wrote this massive book on Atari and founded the Atari Museum, passed away yesterday… may he rest in piece.

Devastated to learn that we lost Atari historian and archivist Curt Vendel, whose video game preservation work was tenacious and groundbreaking. He may be gone, but we’d like to think his legacy lives on in those of us he inspired.

It is with an incredibly sad heart that we report Curt Vendel passed away unexpectedly yesterday. Curt was our friend of 20 years and a true Atari historian who made great contributions to our hobby. He was one of the pillars of this community and will truly be missed.

My friend and fellow Atari historian Curt Vendel has died. I’ve known him for well over 20 years, and feel shattered by his loss.

An unquestioned giant in computer history has died. Curt Vendel was a lifelong Atari Fan, and as a teenager would harass Atari to get prototypes, insider information and then turn them into reports and facts. His decades of effort gave us an incredible amount of wise insight.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
