    Man, the voice that's the stuff of childhood memories.
    And one of the coolest sounding ones ever.
    Rest in peace, good sir.
    Thanx for the memories.

    I've always wanted to meet Mr. Stephenson at a convention, knew he was up there in years but never knew he had Alzheimer's. So many great VA's from G1 gone now. RIP!

    RIP John Stephenson

    It was only a matter of time but it still sucks that he's gone I remember him on Hogan's Heroes, Flintstones and his roles on The Transformers; another G1 voice actor gone.

    Very sad news indeed. Alzheimer's is a devastating disease.
    One of my relatives has it & her mind is already gone except for her body lives on. She remembers nothing of her life.

    Thundercracker has always been my favorite Seeker. Whenever I read his dialogue in any of the comics, it's always his G1 voice that makes him "sound" right.

    RIP MR. Stephenson. I was fortunate enough to meet him at the 2001 Botcon, from talking to him and his panel discussion, he had a lot of great memories to share! I always wanted to get a few more autographs from him, thought I would share my John Stephenson autographs.

    I also had the pleasure of meeting him at Botcon 2001. He admitted he could remember all his TF characters except Huffer, so I embarrassed myself by attempting an impression to refresh his memory :D 
    I also have a picture with him but I don't have access to it right now, so these will have to do.

    Thanks for sharing those UndertakerPrime & turbobluestreak.
    I did not realize he was also Devcon. That was one of my favorite episodes.
    We just got a figure of Devcon last year(Botcon). I didn't realize that either.
    I wish there was a cartoon version of the figure.
