A big part of my childhood just died. A familiar face from the 90’s, best known for playing Uncle Phil on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air (and voiced Shredder on the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon). James Avery, may you rest in peace. You gave me untold hours of joy and comedy growing up, and will continue to do so for as long as your illustrious career as judge Philip banks is preserved in televised format and fond memory. Its so sad that a great man has been lost from this world. Rest In Paradise our Uncle Phil. Thoughts and prayers are with his family, definitely a hard way to start the New Year. R.I.P James Avery.
"If there is any immortality in this world… it’s to know that what we’ve done, is in a sense, immortal. As long as there is a recording somewhere, it will be here. Someone will be listening to it. So that its timeless. You know. And that’s kind of an amazing thing to think about, that what you do will be around. So, you have to be careful about what you do." - James Avery
