R.I.P. Uncle Forry Forrest J. Ackerman passed at age 92. Be at rest, and thank you for shaping my childhood. http://www.laobserved.com/archive/2008/12/forrest_ackerman_dies_at.php Advertisements Share this:TwitterFacebookGoogleTumblrRedditLike this:Like Loading... Related 3 Comments As sick as he’s been we all knew it was coming, but that doesn’t make it any less sad to the millions whose childhoods he shaped. I had the pleasure of his company at a SF con in 1980. We chatted for an hour or so about all kinds of movies, not just horror or SF. I think he was pleasantly surprised to find someone on their early 20s who loved silent films as much as he did. I still love them, and think fondly on that day whenever I watch one. Oddly enough, I was watching his scene in The Howling about the time he passed away. More bad news: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081206/ap_on_en_ot/bettie_page_hospitalized He will be missed.
