    Rest in Peace

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

    • blue marie says:

      + a million, I loved so many of his movies, they were a huge part of my childhood.

    • Monkey Towz says:

      Same here Lady D. I would watch his movies with my late father & had some of the best moments of my childhood enjoying and sharing the silliness with my dad.
      RIP HR, you will be missed by the masses :-(

    • the original bellaluna says:

      Hi Lady D! I agree wholeheartedly. I watched Caddyshack with my adult children when they were teens, and I watch it whenever it’s on. My little one loves Ghostbusters [as do I] and can watch it over and over again.

      Harold will be sadly missed.

  3. Marigold says:

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

  4. 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.

  5. Kelly says:

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

  6. 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.

    • mayamae says:

      My old hometown, Woodstock, Illinois, is where Groundhog Day was filmed. The town square is still filled with pictures of the cast and crew, who were very generous with the locals. So sad.

    • Tippy says:

      National Lampoon’s Vacation needs to be on that list.

  7. Amy Tennant says:

    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.

  8. shitler says:

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

  9. Dawn says:

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

  10. Beatrice says:

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

  11. PunkyMomma says:

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

  12. Emma - the JP Lover says:

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

  13. Adrien says:

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

  14. 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

  15. 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,

  16. 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.

    • Tippy says:

      “Over? Did you say over? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the German’s bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no! And it ain’t over now! Cause when the going gets tough.. The tough get goin’. Who’s with me?” -Animal House

    • Delta Juliet says:

      Yes, my husband and I have watched the BTS shows several times. They were entertaining AND informative, and HR came across as such a cool guy.

      I’m so bummed.

  17. Relli says:

    Egon forever! Thank you for the memories!

  18. 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…

  19. Paul says:

    Rip he was funny and talented.

  20. 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

  21. Sweetpea says:

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

  22. 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.

    • O'Angie says:

      Mine too, delphi. I actually credit my love of brainy types to Egon. So sad!!

    • Charlotte says:

      One of my first too (along with Tim Curry as Frank N Furter). I only realised yesterday how much Ghostbusters Harold looks like my man. Seriously. It’s freaky.

  23. 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”.

  24. 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

  25. 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. :(

  26. Hiddles forever says:

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

  27. 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. “

  28. 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.

  29. 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.

  30. 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.
