In Memoriam: Richard LeParmentier

by Fleetfang on Wed Apr 17, 2013 7:57 am

We pause and pay tribute at the passing of 501st Legion Honorary Member Richard LeParmentier, who will forever be known for his iconic portrayal of Admiral Motti in Star Wars: A New Hope, the first person to ever feel the Force at the hands of Darth Vader, and as a true friend to his many fans around the world.

On April 15th, fate and its sorcerer's ways took him from us, all too soon. On behalf of all members of the 501st Legion, we extend our deepest condolences and sympathy to his friends and family at this tragic time. You will be missed, Richard.

Buckets off, troopers.
