Voice over actor Matthew Mercer shared a series of tweets where he said that Imahara was "made of pure love, light, and kindness":

There are rare, RARE people in this world that are made of pure love, light, and kindness. @grantimahara is one of the brightest. Not an ounce of malice within that soul. Intelligence and heart that eclipse so much shadow. His years of friendship are precious to so many. Matthew Mercer (@matthewmercer)

He would drop anything and everything to help a friend, including our engagement. He put charity and community work as a priority in so many projects. He was an inspiration in so many ways, and I'm going to miss that joyful laugh so much. The silliness and adventure. Matthew Mercer (@matthewmercer)

He was passionate about making tomorrow a little better, in ways big and small. In being a mentor and entertainer, to make others smile with his gifts. His generosity was unrivaled. There are too many stories. Too many wonderful memories. We miss you, bud. <3 pic.twitter.com/KQ87NK4jht Matthew Mercer (@matthewmercer)
