Bobby-Williams-face-eyes-bed (Falcon)Bobby-Williams-body-abs (Channel 1 Releasing)Obits: I’m very sorry to confirm the news that popular skin star Bobby Williams has died. Word began spreading when director Chi Chi LaRue posted a memorial on her Twitter page; I confirmed it today through a newspaper article. He passed early Sunday morning in a car accident, and was just 31 years old. Police are still investigating. Given his immense popularity, it was a surprise to realize the multiple GayVN Awards and Grabby Awards nominee anchored only about two dozen films over a five-year period between 2003 and 2007. Most of them are quite good—and have been continuously repackaged into compilations—including DRENCHED 2, KEPT, THE RECRUITS, TAKING FLIGHT 1, THROUGH THE WOODS and TOMMY’S TALE for Falcon Studios; RIPE and LINK: THE EVOLUTION for All Worlds Video; and ALABAMA TAKEDOWN for Titan Media. I actually cast him in PROWL 5 for MSR Videos and, later, IN TOO DEEP for Studio 2000. Last night, Mike Youens shared a few anecdotes with me. “I remember discovering him while I was Production/Development Director at Falcon when he was working at his dad’s bar and hating it,” he recalled. “Bobby was very shy”—he certainly got over that!—”and used to squint his eyes in his photo shoots. I remember telling him to relax and open those big beautiful eyes of his.” It’s a measure of a man’s character when no one who knew him has anything other than fond memories. We’ll keep your memory alive, Bobby. Condolences to your family, friends and fans.
