Willy Wilson passed away on Saturday night. He was a great friend and supporter of Ragtag Cinema in all its facets. Not only was he the voice of our showtimes line from 2000–2008 and the narrator of our 2012 digital-conversion video (see Willy at the end), he was the designer and co-creator of the copper Tatlin sculpture above our box office, and co-creator of David Wilson, Ragtag's co-founder.
Willy was a prime mover in buying and investing in the Hittsville building. Look for him in this photo
, on Paul's right, in the middle of Hittsville, before construction began.
From all your friends at Ragtag Cinema, True/False, Uprise Bakery, 9th Street Video, and Hitt Records,
thank you, Willy Wilson. You're already missed.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Willy Wilson Scholarship Fund should be sent c/o Maplewood Barn Theatre, P.O. Box 1704, Columbia, MO, 65205.
