One of the earliest supporters of The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan passed away this morning.
Kevin Ratliff passed away at the University of Kentucky Medical Center after a lengthy battle with Crohn's Disease.
Kevin, along with his wife Frances, owned and operated Monsterland Toys for many years. He was one of the original dealers of G-FEST back when it was G-CON. Monsterland Toys was spotlighted in G-FAN magazine in my "Dealer of the Month" series.
He and I were kindred spirits politically and we would occasionally have good political chats.
Kevin will be sorely missed and I extend my condolences to Frances and the Ratliff family and friends.
