It's always sad when we loose an actor who is well
liked. We never really know what their real life was
like, but I hope it was a good one. It's a shame it was
short at 74.

All the best for the family he left behind.

So seeing how a lot of us furs like starwars, and how he wore a furry suit, we lost possibly one of the most famous fur suiters ever.

Do we know if he knew of this fandom? I wonder how many of us he inspired?

I will always love his character Chewbaca.
