I’m sorry to report that performer Robert Elephante died earlier this week. The apparent COD was accidental electrocution from a downed power line in his neighborhood outside Dallas. Several newspaper accounts confirm the news. A popular name in the bear and leather communities, Mr. Elephante appeared in BEAR PLUMBING INC. for Pantheon Productions and BIG EASY BEARS for Bear Films in 2009. “We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Robert Elephante,” Bear Films posted yesterday to their Facebook fan page. “As a person, Robert is a great friend to the bear community and will truly be missed by all of us. You are in our thoughts.” Our condolences to his family, friends and fans.
