Rest in peace, Tully

Justin Tarr - Tully Pettigrew of The Rat Patrol - passed away suddenly... I believe on Friday. He was 72.

It's odd... I've been going through another of my nostalgia phases and just recently had been watching a number of Rat Patrol eps on YouTube and looking for fic. Just 2 weeks ago I even purchased a mail order zine, my first from that fandom. Hitch (Larry Casey) was my favourite in my youth and remains my fave but, over the last few weeks of re-watching these eps, I grew a new appreciation for Tully who stupidly didn't really appeal at all to me when I was a kid.

And now the man who played him is gone. Too sad. My heartfelt thoughts go out to his family and friends.

I know. Though we've lost others, it feels like losing Davy Jones started a trend that is breaking my heart. Chad and Justin so close together is hard accept :(

I'm sorry to see this.

Tully was my favorite. He had that man of few words thing going on. Always a sucker for that. Even at a younger age.:)

He definitely was the strong, silent type. Which makes what he has to say, when he says it, so compelling. The news really is sad :(
