1940 - 2017
This is actually a celebrity RIP that hurts more than most because I met the guy at Monster Mania one year and even got his autograph.
So it is sad to hear that less than 2 years after I met him, that he would pass away, although he was not exactly young. It still sucks to hear about him passing away and he didn't do enough films (and enough crap) for me to do a special induction month (which would obviously be October). He did great stuff like Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Day of the Dead, and Creepshow.
He will be missed.
