    Such a huge part of my 80′s life. Anyone who can make me laugh like that is my hero. So talented. Sad.

  2. Marigold says:

    Did Jimmy Kimmel and his wife have a first baby I don’t know about?

  3. LAK says:

    This is such a disconnect, but i never thought the Harold Ramis in top pic was the same Harold Ramis in the GHOSTBUSTERS films [ end pic]. i really loved his work behind the camera, and i always knew him as he is in the top pic. very goofy sense of humour. it’s so strange to me that i completely disconnected the 2 sides of camera. either way RIP.

  4. Kelly says:

    So sad. He was one actor I would like to have seen more of.

  5. mia girl says:

    Harold, may you rest in peace.

    And THANK YOU for all the enjoyment and laughter I’ve experienced thanks to your writting. Animal House, Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters… and my most watched movie ever, Groundhogs’s Day.
    I’m so sad you are gone, but your gifts will live on.

    I was in full-on denial like I’ve never been with a celebrity death. This is a hoax. It’s gotta be a hoax. It better be a hoax. What the heck do you know, CNN? Very sad.

    • Delta Juliet says:

      Same here. My husband called me yesterday and said “Did Harold Ramis really die?” and I was like, “Nah, I’m sure it’s a hoax”. Only it wasn’t :(
      So sad. I loved his movies and he seemed to be just as great a guy in real life. Such a bummer.

    • Liberty says:

      I know…my husband called me. We were so shocked and saddened. A hug loss. He created so many of my favorite films.

      My niece went to school with his youngest son who was a few grades ahead. My brother said Ramis was awesome, always helping out at school events and as down to earth, kind to everyone and yes, funny/ snarky as you might hope. He said they often shared jokes in conversation as the dads worked on the fundraisers. Nice to know he was as cool in real life as he seemed to be. Read the 2004 article about him from The New Yorker.

    RIP
    That Bible story..no words. Why would people be so nonchalant about killing someone else? Wishing him a quick recovery

  8. Dawn says:

    Such a fuuny guy! May he R.I.P.

  9. Beatrice says:

    Thanks, Harold, for the gift of laughter. He was a comedic genius who will be missed. Rest in peace.

  10. PunkyMomma says:

    A gifted, generous genius. You will be missed, Harold, you will be missed.

  11. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    What a bright, create man. I will miss him dearly. :( My thoughts are with his family and friends.

  12. Adrien says:

    RIP. Thank you for Ghostbusters and Groundhog Day, two of my favorite films ever.

  13. magz says:

    Loved his voice, and his sense of humor. This man will live on for a long while with his legacy. So sad to see him go so soon. RIP

  14. Joh says:

    Harold and his wife and Dan Akroyd and his wife came into our restaurant a few years ago and were very low key and gracious, even with an obnoxious drunken patron who started to bother them….
    There was a lot of fondness between Harold and Dan,
    RIP

  15. Tig says:

    Animal House, for all it’s gutter humor, was a work of total genius. Try to find the BTS show if both it and Caddyshack- they are almost as funny as the movies themselves. RIP Harold.

  16. Relli says:

    Egon forever! Thank you for the memories!

  17. TheCountess says:

    “Multiplicity” is one of my favorite, underappreciated films to pop in.

    Sunday’s “In Memoriam” segment is going to be more maudlin than usual. It’s been a year of tragic losses in Hollywood.

    • Happy21 says:

      i was just thinking about the “in Memoriam” segment which was going to air during the Oscars on Sunday was thought the exact same thing! Usually I watch and go “oh yeah they died!” or “I didn’t know they died”. This year it seems like a very long list…

  18. Paul says:

    Rip he was funny and talented.

  19. Secret Squirrel says:

    I couldn’t believe it when they said Harold was 69 years old. When did that happen?? I still picture him in his Ghostbusters outfit. His movie works reads like a bible of my favorite movies. He brought a lot of humor to Hollywood! Ghostbusters was the first DVD I ever bought. Groundhog Day was the second.

    Condolences to his family, but I hope they are able to remember that Harold loved to make people laugh and will remember him with a smile. R.I.P

  20. Sweetpea says:

    So shocked and so sad. He was simply the best straight funny man. Incredibly talented. Boohooo!!!!

  21. delphi says:

    I will reiterate my thoughts from yesterday’s link thread. He was one of my first girlhood crushes as Egon (don’t judge). He was and always will be a comedy legend. Nobody did deadpan better.

  22. lvk0430 says:

    I was so sad to hear about Harold Ramis. He was a lovely, funny man and he will be missed by all who enjoy great comedy and the joy of laughing.

    P.S. It’s “Spengler” not “Spangler”.

  23. Mauibound says:

    I’ve come across tons of articles, stories and interviews about HR and not one single negative word to be found. How many can say that and what does that tell you about the man’s character. Second to none RIP Harold Ramis

  24. Nicolette says:

    This is one of those deaths where I let out a gasp when I heard. This man, this comic genius was responsible for so many of my favorite movies. Being home sick in bed last week I watched Vacation, Meatballs and Analyze This, and even while feeling like crap they made me laugh. The amount of times I have smiled and laughed at his humor would be too many to count throughout the years, the humor was timeless. From Animal House to Groundhog’s Day to Caddy Shack and on and on, he was the gift that kept on giving. And he always came across as a great guy, not at all one of those self-centered ‘look at how successful and amazing I am’ Hollywood type of people. I’m so sorry he’s gone. :(

  25. Hiddles forever says:

    R.I.P. Harold. So sad :(

  26. John says:

    The article says it’s Kimmel and his wife’s first baby (although its grammar is shocking):

    “His wife, Molly McNearney and him are expecting their first child together. “

  27. CM says:

    I’m bereft. I can’t believe Harold Ramis has died. I loved all of his movies, and he was a Chicagoan that did us all proud. He produced a great body of work and was known by most accounts (if not all) as a nice, kind, and funny man. The world is always a bit dimmer when such a wonderful soul leaves it.

  28. Deedee says:

    I loved Harold Ramis and the rest of Second City TV cast. They were funnier than SNL by a long shot. He shall truly be missed.

  29. Bobby the K says:

    I know it’s late, but don’t forget his awesome work on SCTV, if you haven’t seen some of it, check it out.
