Richard J. Brooker Dead

April 8, 2013


It hasn’t been confirmed officially yet, but Richard J. Brooker‘s fanpage on Facebook as well as the Crystal Lake Memories page just started buzzing with condolences regarding his passing. Now, these things happens every now and then – Jackie Chan comes to mind as he’s “passed away” about umpteen times according to rumors – so keep an eye out on his official website for confirmation. He starred as Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part III and was the first to don the now-iconic hockey mask. Check out the trailer:

UPDATE: It has been confirmed via Friday the 13th: The Film Franchise that Richard indeed has passed away. This was posted by his former business manager Eric Branden on his Facebook:


UPDATE 2: His passing has been confirmed by dailydead.com,  FEARnet and deadwintercon.
