RIP Bill Hinzman
Bill Hinzman, an actor famous for his zombie role in Night of the Living Dead, which revolutionized zombies in Cinema and set the standard for decades after, passed away yesterday at the age of 75, from cancer. His daughter had him cremated, per his wishes. She said he always joked that if he was buried, he'd come back from the dead. Bill was a great guy, he loved the convention circuit, and he was quite a people-person. He was a lot of fun, had a great sense of humor, and truly loved what he did. I had the pleasure of spending some time with Bill and I'll treasure that. RIP Bill Hinzman, you'll live on in the television sets of millions of viewers, in my artwork, and in all of our hearts.
