Thank You, Carl Macek

I can’t believe it, but producer Carl Macek who brought Robotech to the U.S. as a series of three anime, passed away on April 17th of a heart attack.  Today’s L.A. Times has an obituary:  http://www.latimes.com/news/obituaries/la-me-passings-20100423,0,2843388.story

I will forever remember Carl for the gift he gave all of us:  a wonderful escape into the world of Macross, Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber Mospeada, and my initial introduction to Japanese anime.

“A memorial in Carl Macek’s memory will be held at the Congregational Church of the Chimes at 2pm on May 1st in Sherman Oaks, California. The service will be open to the public, but we ask well wishers to be mindful of Carl’s friends and family.”

Thank you, Carl.  We will miss you!  God bless.
