RIP Harold Ramis

http://my.chicagotribune.com/#sectio.../p2p-79423939/

Passes away at age 69.

Ramis leaves behind a formidable body of work, with writing credits on such enduring comedies as “National Lampoon’s Animal House” (which upon its 1978 release catapulted the film career of John Belushi, with whom Ramis acted at Second City), “Stripes” (1981) and “Ghostbusters” (in which Ramis also co-starred) plus such directing efforts as “Caddyshack” (1980), “National Lampoon’s Vacation” (1983), “Groundhog Day” and “Analyze This.”
Ramis, a longtime North Shore resident, was surrounded by family when he died at 12:53 a.m. from complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves swelling of the blood vessels, his wife Erica Mann Ramis said. He was 69.

Re: RIP Harold Ramis

That's a shock. He directed and acted in some of my favorite comedies. Groundhog Day in particular is a masterpiece.

Rest in peace and thanks for the films you left us with.

One of my heroes. Shame I never got to meet him.
Dammit. I think this is the end of Ankroid's dream of a GB3 with a full cast reunion.

Oh no, terrible news. He was a major axis of much of the comedy I enjoyed in my youth. A comedy legend, in my book. So many laughs, so many quotable lines... Thanks Mr. Ramis.

Too bad, super-talented guy. I should get around to playing the Ghostbusters video game sometime.
