I know some of you remember Lightwizard and it's sad for me to have to announce that he is no longer with us. He died recently and I just became aware of it a little while ago. Rest in Peace my dear friend xxxx ♥

@Montana,
Ouch ... no wonder I haven't seen him on Facebook lately. Any idea what happened?

@Montana,
Yes, I remember him. He was the fellow who was interested in movies?

That's too bad! Sad

RIP {{{Lightwizard}}}.

Thanks for letting us know, Montana!

@Butrflynet,
I have no idea as of yet what happened, just that his niece contacted one of our mutual friends and I was told through another mutual friend. I just heard the sad news myself.

Lightwizard really knew movies like no one else on A2K. He gave me advice when my older daughter started working professionally in the television and movie industry.

Lightwizard was a college student in Los Angeles in 1951. At that time he worked on the lighting crew for the filming of The Day The Earth Stood Still with Michael Rennie and Patricia Neal. This film is mentioned in every list of the top science fiction movies. Lightwizard was actually part of American movie history.

I already missed him during his absence from A2K. I feel as if one of my next door neighbors died suddenly.

I will keep him on my FB along with Bob forever or as long as their FB accounts are left open. Those I have lost in time will live in my heart as long as I live...

I'm very sorry to hear this. LW was tremendously knowledgeable about films. But what I admired even more was his enthusiasm.

I'll miss him.

That sucks. We disagreed on some of the best movies, and most everything else, yet still connected as friends. Dude was cool. Rest in peace, George.
