Today’s run was a light maintenance run for next week’s Walt Disney World, Run Disney, Star Wars Dark Side Half Marathon Weekend. I’m pretty happy over all with today’s run. I ran 3.06 miles at 9:51 pace.
It is with a very sad and heavy heart that I report the passing of former Walt Disney Imagineer Marty Sklar.
My thoughts on the passing of Legendary Disney Imagineer Marty Sklar
I first met Marty Sklar at a special eventput on by the Pacific Northwest Mouse Meet in 2012. At the time, I had a rough draft of my first book. Mr. Sklar was very inspirational and is part of the reason I pressed ahead and now not only have that book in print, but a second book in print and a third in the works.
I had the good fortune to see him talk several times and even got to have a brief private conversation with him twice.
He is not without his controversies, but he was a good man. He brought much joy to countless numbers of people, including me and my family. He took Walt Disney’s founding principles and never wavered from them. They were successful for Walt, and he continued with that success. I have signed copies of both of Mr. Sklar’s books and will always cherish them and their great words of advise.
I can’t claim to have personally known him, but I have benefited from his writings, presentations, and personal words of advise.
Thank you Marty,
Russell D Flores
