"Visual artist and futurist Syd Mead, who helped shape the look of influential sci-fi films including “Blade Runner,” “Tron,” “Aliens” and “Star Trek: The Motion Picture,” died Monday of complications from lymphoma in Pasadena, Calif. He was 86." - Variety dot com Obituary.

Perhaps he got to see it in person, at least. Appears he MAY have resided in California.
