We are deeply saddened to report that horror icon Richard Brooker has passed away today. Born in 1954, Brooker was best known for his portrayal of Jason Voorhees in Friday The 13th Part III, and he will go down in horror history as the first Jason to don the trademark hockey mask.
Details regarding his death are unknown at the moment, however it was reported yesterday that Booker posted on his Facebook page that he wasn’t feeling well.
This terrible news was confirmed by Booker's buness manager, Eric Branden who wrote:
“It is my sad obligation to tell all of you that my first client and dear friend RICHARD J. BROOKER past away earlier today. There are many words spoken and there are so many words left unspoken. I’m still shocked so excuse me that I leave you with only this few words only. My prayers go out to his family all over the world.”
