Damn, 66 is young. Fuck cancer.

Did you ever met him, AJLe?

Yes, it's very sad - his wife had just started a Gofundme for medical costs for his cancer treatments about a month ago, and now he's already gone.

To answer your question, I met him a couple of times - out in LA at Weekend of Horrors (one of the last years Fangoria ran a huge guest list show), and at Days Of The Dead a couple of times. Always came off as nice, and genuinely a "horror guy", and not just some guy in hollywood who happened to be known for his horror credit.
