I post this in fond memory...

58 is way too soon to leave. :(

****! Porkins was named Hootkins? That's pretty cool. I stole his name when I played XWA online years back. RIP.

That's really unfortunate to see an old favorite like Porkins die at such a young age. I hope his family is getting along ok.

58 is definitely way too young to die. RIP Porkins. :(

I remember one time, I was watching ANH in school one day (last day of scool in grade 6 - what else were we going ot do?), and when his X-Wing blew up, I poked my friend on the arm and said: "hehe. Bacon." Then this fat guy in front of us turned around and said: "I'm trying to watch the movie, guys" in a really stupid sounding voice. We got kicked out of class for laughing to loudly.

Too bad :/
I always joked that "The fat guy always dies first" in movies, cause he did in ANH :) always thought it was funny.

Definitely sad, but I will be glad that seeing him out there at the end of ANH will always bring a smile to my face.
