Sad face! So sad to see that Harold Ramis has passed. I'll always remember the guy suited up to do battle as the "quiet" Ghostbuster. And whether or not you remember his face, you've definitely been affected by his 40 years in the business.
Ramis started out as a cast member on SCTV, a small screen version of the reknowned improv group, Chicago's Second City. Always known as a hardworking yet kind and humble man, he eventually wound up directing 14, writing 36, producing 15 and acting in 23 projects including, "Ghostbusters," "Groundhog Day," "Caddyshack," "Stripes," "Analyze This," and "Knocked Up."
Ramis died in his Chicago home yesterday of complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis. He leaves his wife, 3 children and 2 grandkids.
Harold Ramis, quietly, consistently, professionally, dependably, likeably funny leaves us at age 69. Sad. DaveT
