Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this difficult time.

Some very sad news to report. A few weeks ago, we told you about a crowdfunding effort to help Nunslaughter drummer Jim Konya after he suffered a stroke. The bills were stacking up and the band was hopeful that Konya would make a recovery, but sadly that is not the case.

An obituary was posted to

"A lot of people think of him as some crazy heavy-metal badass in satanic rock band T-shirts," says Bill Peters, a heavy-metal DJ at WJCU 88.7/FM who befriended Konya when he would call in to the radio station to make song requests. "But the Jim I know is the kind of person who would offer rides to strangers at the end of the night – a good person and very giving."

The report notes that Konya suffered multiple seizures and strokes while in the hospital. He was eventually taken off life support. A memorial page has been set up on Facebook and the GoFundMe is still active with proceeds going directly to Jim's family to help with medical expenses.
