    Wolfer Obituaries or Death Notices Thread Empty Gary Acord: November 30, 1948 – October 2014

    Gary Acord: November 30, 1948 – October 2014
     
    I had found out when I bought The Dolfin Comics comic book from Dallas from Ebay that Wolfenstein 3D mod maker Gary Acord died in October 2014.  He had a Journalism Ph.D, was a philosopher, author, Elvis look-a-like, boxer, comic book illustrator, & lived in Dallas.  He was president of a Science Fiction Club.  His comic book was Dolfin Comics, his book was Heaven on Earth, & his magazine was Wotta World.  I think that he had 3 wives & a son.  We exchanged several emails & he was quite a character!

    I had no idea Acord was that kind of character. Too bad he passed.
