belln-300x225The first time I saw Otto was when I was adding Facebook friends and his profile jumped up in the suggested friends thing . His profile picture reminded me of a cross between Jerry Lewis, Buddy Holly and Elvis Costello so I clicked on it. I read thru his posts and found him to be an interesting person so I shot him a private message and asked if he would allow me to interview him. He said yes I could. That was in October of 2011. Though we never met in real life we developed an internet friendship and I started adding other features about Otto. He shared his families pizza crust recipe. He shared his childhood Christmas stories about getting a bike and other things. He checked in from time to time and we kept in touch. When I did a follow up story about him, he had just received word he had cancer….Otto laid it all out in the open. Always Optimistic. He was forth coming about his treatments and progress. He didn’t hold anything back.

He checked in with me on my birthday. He didn’t press “1” on his phone like we all do to put the “fake” happy birthday notice on someone’s facebook page…He PM’d me this instead.

happy birthday good buddy , you’ve really helped me feel good for years

 

He got better at first and then the cancer came back. I followed his blog. I tried to remember as best as I could the 11:11 good vibe thing he asked for. When I did, I asked the Lord to be with him. We touched bases briefly in 2014 but I knew he was hurting so I didn’t bother him much. I, along with many of his friends posted good thoughts and encouragements to him. He was always thankful for the “food Angels” that helped him with purchasing food.

I awoke this morning and Otto crossed my mind again. Not sure why at first but now I know why. I had recently read where he was in lot of pain and his pain meds weren’t helping. I went to Otto’s Facebook page today and saw were he had passed away yesterday. 🙁 I feel very sad. Otto lost the fight. Or did he? He gave it his best shot. Probably fought harder than most of us could. He gave encouragement to us when he really needed encouragement himself from us. Folks, that’s not a selfish person. I only knew him via the internet and will miss him. To those of you that knew him in real life, I have no doubt you have lost one helluva a gentle kind man.

Otto, though a comedian in real life made us laugh. He left us with a world’s worth of wisdom. This was his motto. He lived it. We should too.

“BE NICE to as many people as you can. It’s absolutely free. I’ll be nice to you, and you’ll be nice to me. Just like tag – if we start tonight, tomorrow with be a better world.”

 For all the interviews/videos and Christmas stories he shared with the readers and me. See the links below. God Bless and R.I.P. Otto.

sincerely,

Chuck

kwYou were one funny son of a bitch and I mean that as a complement.I have laughed my ass off over the years to your jokes and improv. Today’s comedians really need to only look to you to see how “it’s done”. One by one all the good ones are gone 🙁

From Foxnews

Comedian Jonathan Winters, whose breakneck improvisations inspired Robin Williams, Jim Carrey and many others, has died at age 87.

Longtime family friend Joe Petro III says Winters died Thursday evening at his Montecito, Calif., home of natural causes. TMZ reported the actor was surrounded by family and friends at the time of his death.

Winters was a master of improvisational comedy, with a grab bag of eccentric personalities and facial expressions. Characters such as the dirty old lady Maude Frickert were based on people Winters knew growing up in Ohio.

In the mid-1950s, “The Jonathan Winters Show” pioneered the then-new videotape technology on to do stunts such as showing up as two characters on screen together.

He was introduced to millions of new fans in 1981 as the son of Williams’ goofball alien in the final season of ABC’s “Mork and Mindy.”

Though he was originally known for his stand up and comedy recordings, Winters appeared in many movies, such as “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” and “The Loved One.”
