Friday the 13th: The Series' R.G. Armstrong dies

Friday the 13th: The Series is my all-time favorite show, so it is with sadness that I read about the death of actor R.G. Armstrong, who played Uncle Lewis Vendredi on the show.

Uncle Lewis was the reason for all the trouble Micki, Ryan and Jack faced, since he was the one who originally owned the store and cursed and sold all the antiques the trio then had to hunt down and store in the vault.

Armstrong had a prolific career, his IMDb page lists 181 credits, dating back to 1954. He was a character actor who appeared in many TV series guest spots, including many westerns.

Here is a link to an article on his death.
