One of the single most recognizable character actors of our time, Irwin Keyes, who starred in everything from The Warriors to House of 1000 Corpses, has passed on at the all too young age of 63.
The news comes from his neice Rene Galarza, who left the following message on Keyes’ Facebook page…
“It’s with deep sympathy that I’m writing this post. Early this morning my family was informed that our beloved uncle, brother, teammate and friend, Irwin Keyes has had his last curtain call. He is now an angel for us all and will be watching down. Our family wishes to thank all of you who have been a part of his life. He will be missed very much.”
Yes, he will. We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest of condolences to Irwin’s friends, family, and constituents. Rest easy, friend… you were one of the greats and will live on for many years to come.
