Rest in Peace, René Auberjonois

Another great one has passed on.

René Auberjonois beloved actor of MASH,  Boston Legal and Deep Space 9 fame has died aged 79 of lung cancer.

Another one who went to earlier and who will be sorely missed by the fans in the community and his family.

René Murat Auberjonois
June 1, 1940 – December 8, 2019

Odo, whom he portrayed in Deep Space 9, was my favourite Star Trek universe character and I had the opportunity to talk to René 2 years ago during a Star Trek convention, where I also became a member of the Order of the Bucket. This bucket thing is a running gag initiated by him, if you payed an extra $10 or $20 on top of the fee for his autograph he would draw you a bucket with your name on and the money would go to a Doctors Without Borders.

He also had a part in my favourite computer game, Fallout: New Vegas, voicing Mister House.

René is survived by his wife of 56 years, Judith, and their two children.

Rest in Peace, Sir. Your legacy and memory will live on.
