David Schecter posted at the Classic Horror Film Board that Rex Reason's wife Shirley called him to report that his brother, actor Rhodes Reason has passed away at age 84.
I met Rhodes Reason in 2007 at G-Fest in Chicago. I found him to be a very interesting and humorous man who told about funny things that happened while he was in Japan filming King Kong Escapes (1967). His story about being directed by Ishiro Honda in a submarine scene had the audience roaring with laughter.

Reason appeared in quite a number of television shows including Star Trek.
I tried to send a message of condolence to his wife Jeri, but apparently the email address I have is no longer working.

My condolences go out to the Reason family.
