THE LEGENDARY GEORGE A. ROMERO
The passing of George A. Romero has resulted in a massive outpouring of emotion from around the globe, and rightfully so. Independent and visionary. Pioneering and stubborn. Bold and brilliant. These are just a few of the words that can accurately be applied to George. But those of us at DEC would also add the words teacher, mentor, collaborator, brother and, most importantly, friend. On behalf of Tom Savini, Jerry Gergely, Robert Tinnell and the staff, faculty and students of George A. Romero’s Filmmaking Program and the Tom Savini Special Make-up Effects Program , as well as everyone else affiliated with Douglas Education Center, I’d like to extend our heartfelt condolences to George’s wife, Suz, to his children and other family members and to all who knew and loved him. Rest in peace, George.
