Remembering Perfessor Evil
One of the first sites I ever listed on my links page way back when was HauntProject.com. I have always thought it was one of the best, straight-forward resources online for home haunters of all skill levels. It's also the only site I ever made a point to contribute links to as often as I could despite busy schedules and absences from online forums. And each time, the Perfessor and I would exchange a couple of emails back and forth, often wishing each other happy haunting.
This morning on Dave Lowe's website I was striken...literally stopped in my tracks...to learn that PerfessorEvil (Rik Cary) had passed away this weekend. My mind couldn't absorb the information. It's unthinkable. HauntProject has been such a constant in my life, and in the lives of countless other haunters.
He leaves behind a legacy of links and resources that have reached thousands upon thousands of people. He was a champion of Halloween. He will be greatly missed.
I hope there are plans to keep the site running. It would be a shame to see all of his work and generously donated time be lost.
Check out the 2010 video of his haunt (above) and then see the magnificent additions he had last year in 2011 (below).
