"Transformers" voice director Wally Burr has passed away at the age of 91

Reports are coming in from various quarters including a post on Facebook that Wally Burr has passed away at the age of 91. Burr is best known to Transformers fans as the legendary voice director of the original Transformers television show. However Burr's credits go back to the 1960's and continued into the early 90's. In more recent years he attended Botcon 2013.

I was fortunate enough to meet Burr at Botcon 2005, and we spoke a few times after that. Despite his reputation as a harsh taskmaster in the studio, he was incredibly kind, funny and generous during our conversations. I will miss him dearly.
