It's with great regret that I post this. Apparently, Rodger Swan or as some may know him as "Iwate Swan", passed away a few days ago due to Acute Pancreatitis. There are a number of Japan YouTube personalities, Rodger was one of them I watched regularly. His last video was posted just a few days before he died and you can see his channel at this link: http://www.youtube.com/rodgerswan I don't have any other information other than what is already publicly available. My regards go out to his family and friends, both here in Japan and back in America. Godspeed Rodger.
