    I just found out about this. :(

    William Hootkins passed away on October 23 at the age of 57 battling pancreatic cancer.

    He will be always remembered by Star Wars fans as "Red Six" Jek Porkins in Star Wars.

    He will also be remembered as a fan favorite at conventions where he was always friendly and an interesting person.

    God Bless his family and friends.

    I didn't know this either. It is sad to see yet another SW actor pass away this year. Granted I don't know one from another besides the main ones, but I do know the characters they played.
