Creature Features Host Bob Wilkins Passes

Bob Wilkins at KCRA  circa1967

I was sad to hear of the passing of Bob Wilkins on January 7th. I wasn't allowed to stay up late enough to catch his show as a kid, but I did see a few of them, most impostatnyl for me, Stan Lee's appearance during the release of ORIGINS OF MARVEL COMICS. It was at that time I started to realize that I didnt have to be scared of horror movies all the time, they could be fun , too.

"On January 7, 2009, Bob Wilkins passed away peacefully. As many of you know, Bob had been suffering from Alzheimer's disease for the past several years and his family appreciates the concern, thoughts and prayers from his friends and fans.

When I first met Bob in 1995, he was still at the top of his game. Since then, I've been designing and maintaining his official website, and even produced (along with Mr. Lobo) two live Creature Features events in Sacramento. Its been an honor and a privilege to not only work with Bob, but to become friends with him and his family.

You can email your condolences to and I will pass them along to the Wilkins family.
