Bob Wilkins 1932-2009

I sat down to post a quick note about tonight's kick off of Joss Whedon's Firefly, and what a great time everyone had, only to encounter the news of Bob Wilkins' passing.

During the preparation for our All Day of the Dead celebration of Night of the Living Dead's 40th anniversary last October, I took the opportunity to use the event as a fundraiser to help with his care as he battled alzheimer's. You can read what I had originally posted about Bob here.

Suffice it to say, Bob was a major influence on me growing up, and he will be missed.
