Sadly, Gary Klahr passed away on December 31st 2020.

Gary had planned on being a guest for the second time with us at the upcoming Living Dead Weekend. A friend of the Living Dead family and fans, Gary was a positive upbeat soul and loved by everyone.

Gary leaves behind a legacy of work in film and a lovely family, friends, and fans that adored him. To his fans that met him, he will always be remembered fondly as the nicest guy you could ever meet. He’ll always be our hero at large.
May he now be at peace.
