Whoa, Robert Loggia!

I know I am getting old. Every day that passes is another reminder of how old I am. When a celebrity I grew up following — actor, actress, author — passes away, their death is another not-so-subtle reminder of my mortality.

Whoa, Robert Loggia!

I woke up this morning to find out Robert Loggia, one of my favorite actors has passed away. Known for playing gravelly-voiced mobsters in Scarface and The Sopranos to comedic roles in Big and three Pink Panther films, Mr. loggia passed away December 4. He was 85-years-old.

My favorite roles, and the ones that made him become one of my favorite actors included Independence Day, Big, and believe it or not, his Minute Maid commercials.

Salvatore Loggia was born Jan. 3, 1930, on Staten Island. The son of Sicilian immigrants, he grew up in Manhattan’s Little Italy section. He is survived by his wife, Audrey O’Brian, and three children from his first marriage (Marjorie Sloane).

   I am 43-years-old, a hemophiliac, the co-founder of GamersRevenge.com, a blogger at TheCli3nt.com, part-time YouTuber (Geek Out! videocast) and Twitch streamer.
   I'm an old-school gamer, having started playing video games back in 1977 on the Atari 2600 (even managed to place 6th in Jafco's Atari Pac-Man tournament in 1982). I first began abusing games shortly after my best friend introduced me to Quake. By the time Quake II was released, I was addicted.
   After being found, in May 2008, passed out in front of my computer with a mouse cord wrapped around my arm and over 100 flash drives scattered around my body, I sobered up. To help maintain my sobriety, I switched to single player console gaming.
   In my life outside of the Wasteland, yes, I do have one --- wait, that's a lie. I have my Xbox One, Plex media server, high-speed internet, and Dax the Magnificent (my furry four-legged child).
