According to Virginia Johnson, long-time Charlie Chan fan Bill Lutters passed away on June 22. Mr. Lutters had been a well-known participant on this message board. Details as to the cause of his death were not available, but Bill has had continuing health difficulties for some years. As was her regular practice, Virginia had spoken with Bill, who was at his Daytona Beach, Florida home, earlier that day. She notes that he had received and had enjoyed viewing his copy of the new DVD release of the final three Charlie Chan films from Warner Brothers.
Virginia has lost a dear, long-distance friend, and Chandom has lost a gentleman and a great fan. Please keep Bill Lutters and his family in your prayers...
