Dang. Though at least he was 83.

He starred in some of my favorite movies and delivered so many laughs. He was amazing. I was shocked to see how old he looked in a recent photo and I was shocked that he was 83, but I guess I am also shocked that I am 47 too.

I have seen Young Frankenstein and Blazing Saddles countless times. I am now enjoying repeated viewings of Willie Wonka with my kids too.

An absolutely huge part of my childhood. Rest in peace Gene.
