    “Dedicated to the Memory of Captain H. L. Larry Cullen?”

    I was just watching The latest episode of Transformers: Prime, Partners, when I noticed the above message just before the credits started:( 

    It looks as though the inspiration behind Mr. Peter Cullen's voice for Optimus Prime, his brother Larry, has passed:( 

    I'm sorry for your loss Mr. Cullen my God be with you and your family in this time of need.

    I posted the same thing in the news area, didn't know if it should have gone here or there.

    Sad, sad news:( 

    EDIT:

    Don't know what'll happen to this thread or the other, but either way, here's more info:

    He sounds like a man who was well loved by his friends, comrades and family. Rest in Peace my good man, by reading the cliff notes of your life, I'd say you've well earned your right to eternal peace.

    Semper Fidelis, from a respectful outside observer.

    Thoughts and prayers to Peter and his family. I'm sure this has been hard for them, and from the many interviews I've read and heard with Peter it was clear that he had a strong admiration for his brother. I wish him and his family the best in this difficult time. Rest in Peace Captain Larry Cullen.

    He was obviously a very special man and will be missed by family and friends. Over the years we TF fans have seen and heard Peter's admiration for his brother and credits him constantly as the inspiration for Prime's voice and demeanor. Transformers would have been quite different without the Cullen brothers, we salute you both. Please accept our condolences and prayers for the Cullen family. :rip

    I am sorry about Peter Cullen's and his family's loss.
    I am sad that I and many other know him only as Peter Cullen's brother and OP's voice inspiration when it sounds like he was a great man. Also if the voice reflects the inspiration, he was mighty but kind. RIP Captain H.L. Cullen.

    Rest in peace, Captain H.L. Larry Cullen. My prayers go to the Cullen family. Without him, there would've been no inspiration for the one of the greatest voices to have ever existed.
