For many years he lived less than a half a mile from me on Selby Ave. He had the second floor of good size building. Think 1000 sq ft. studio apartment. Many in my gaming group held him in high esteem. I had the dubious honor of plumbing the debts of Blackmoor and dying there, killed by an air elemental. I played with him as DM a few times. One thing the was funny was that we kept seeing holes blown in the walls of the dungeon. We finally realized that these explosions were the result of people trying to get out of Blackmoor Dungeon. It was easy to go down but hard to go up.
He was personable, friendly, and very patient. A quiet man, who we felt, my group, never got the just recognition he deserved as co-creator of D&D.
