Title: Rene Auberjonois passed away
Post by: ANS Kamas P81 on 08 December 2019, 18:37:46
Age 79, lung cancer is a bitch.

I remember him best from DS9 of course, but he was always loved on other shows like Boston Legal.  Damn shame.

I'm more than a little worried about my wife... she quit smoking before we got married, but not a day goes by she doesn't WANT a cigarette...

Im truly sad. My grandfather on my mothers side died (25 years ago) from the same cancer at the same age and a full year before I got into recon cavalry branch in the army. He would be proud. Damn disease.

RIP Rene.

good CGI and voice box won't stop death (it apparently will raise James Dean from the dead)…

I believe he led a decent life. Lots of stuff he did... and he was a Grand Father, too. He'll be missed but with the evil invention, YoutubeTM, he'll never be forgotten... hopefully. Some of the millennials I've met in my travels seem to use their INT and WIS as dump stats...

I saw him first in "My best friend is a vampire".
There he was the cool teacher to a newbie vampire. I liked it.

But sadly we all get older.

So, RIP Mr Auberjonois.
And thanks for the funny time I had while watching your movies etc.

Sorry.
I saw one of the last Pictures of him and he looked very old and frail.

  :'(   RIP . I' am going to miss him love him most the movie he in. I like him in ST DS9 and preacher in the The Patriot. What a bummer.

To be fair he was also practically 80; anyone who DOESN'T look frail at that age is impressive.  (Looking at you, Shatner)  But yeah, cancer was known as "the wasting disease" for a long time for good reason.
