Wormy had a lot of fans. During the oughties, fans (especially tabletop gamers) reached out to Trampier, or tracked him down, depending on your perspective. He was interviewed over the phone by, gosh, I forget who now, but I want to say Clark Peterson of Necromancer Games. Trampier was a nice guy and talked some about where his life had gone, and his dream job of driving a cab and being immersed in human stories. He did not want to be associated with D&D, and politely asked that nobody else try to contact him.
I certainly can't speak to his plans to get back into the community, since it was by his intention that nobody within it knew him very well. But I think it would be in the spirit of his wishes to be remembered not as David A. Trampier, D&D Artist, but instead David A. Trampier, Fascinating Human Being.
