As you may know, my fellow actor and dear friend, Chris Pennock, has passed away. Chris was the most fun loving, generous, and kind man with a great smile. He was the kind of person this world needs more of.

I was fortunate to last spend time with Chris not that long ago when he officiated the wedding of our friends Valerie and Jim Storm. Jim, Chris and I have been friends since our days of being cast in the late sixties show, Dark Shadows.

Chris was one of the most talented and dedicated actors I have had the privilege to work with. A long time member of The Actors Studio, Chris loved to lose himself in whatever role he was playing. His spirit and joy of life will be with me and all those who were lucky to cross his path.
