Well, that sucks. It seems like one of these threads get started every week. :(Not too surpising though - Star Wars is almost 30 years old now.
Still, it's sad to hear about Phil...

This is very sad. :cry:

At least we know he did indeed escape those stormtroopers.

I knew you would be back Rich. You cant stay away forever.

Very sad news on Uncle Owens demise, now maybe Hasbro will honor him with his own carded version.

He did a good job as our Uncle Owen......RIP my friend.....:cry:

This is indeed sad news. He did quite a good part in ANH. It's sad to think that all of the younger cast members are getting up there in age too and we'll no doubts start having threads like this for Luke and Leia in a couple of decades.

R.I.P It's been coming for some time, but it's still too bad.

I got the pleasure to meet him at CII. I got his autograph, but by that time he could berely sign his own name, and didn't speak much. 89 years is a respectable amount of years to live.

Sad to hear Phil pass on to the big moisture farm in the sky. He'll be missed,did a fine job in ANH
