Rene Auberjonois passed away

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...

Farewell Rene, as you return to the Great Link for good.

Cheers, Gabe
So, now I'm imagining people boxing up Overlords for loading as cargo.  "Nope, totally not a DropShip.  Everyone knows you can't fit a DropShip in a WarShip!  It's...a ten thousand ton box of marshmallows!  Yeah.  For the Heavy Guards big annual smores party."

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.

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.
