My father, Richard Gaughen, passed away today.
He was almost 81.
He was a teacher.
He was an artist.
He was an actor.
He was a Marine.
He was someone who made me laugh, made me think, made me dream.
He was someone who took the time to show me how to draw, how to paint a model, how to rappel.
He was someone who encouraged my love of the woods and the ocean.
He was someone who talked & shaped my love of movies, books and television.
He was always an inspiration in all that I’ve ever wanted to do, including the madness that has been ACTION FIGURE TIMES and “Ask Randy”.
I am my father’s son.
I love you, Daddy.
Your son, Andrew
In times like these, I always encourage you to count your blessing and take an extra moment with your family, by both blood and friendship.
