Uncle Forry succumbed to heart disease yesterday, just past his 92nd birthday. Tributes to him are popping up all over the web. Here's an article that appeared today at Ain't It Cool News:
As one of the thousands of Monster Kids who discovered Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine in the 70's, It was always a dream of mine to go someday to visit the fabled Ackermansion in Hollyweird, Karloffornia. Sadly, I waited too long. Forry sold off much of his vast collection a few years ago, and he'd spent the last few years in increasingly poor health. His death marks the end of an era. He was a fanboy long before the word existed. RIP Uncle Forry. You'll be missed.
