FSWL contributor Mark Honeyball took care of Octopussy (1983) actor Richard Le Parmentier at Memorabilia in Birmingham 2007.

Mark kindly provided the picture below and said that Richard was a very nice and friendly man in real life who enjoyed meeting people at conventions.

Sadly, Richard Le Parmentier passed away on April 16, 2013. Our thoughts go to his family who commented on his passing:

"Every time we find someone’s lack of faith disturbing, we’ll think of him.

At age 66, Richard Le Parmentier is one with the Force. We’re deeply grateful to the many devoted fans who have posted personal remembrances of our dad as a warm, genuine person with an unparalleled joie de vivre and gift for friendship (not to mention a mean petanque player).

To his fans and friends, his lines were the ultimate power in the universe. He absolutely loved travelling the world and meeting his friends and fellow Star Wars fan – whose tributes have given us all the best lines in this message. He told us many stories of the hospitality he enjoyed. He usually lived in Bath, England, but was visiting us in Austin, Texas. We feel very lucky to have been able to spend time with him on a regular basis. He was no respecter of convention, except comic conventions.

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Richard was a talented actor and director whose career spanned four decades and dozens of projects. He edited another draft of his latest project two days before death, with its sorcerer’s ways, took him from us. He has gone to the Stars, and he will be missed. We love you dad, and thank you to everyone.

Love, Rhiannon, Stephanie, and Tyrone Le Parmentier."

Rest in peace, Richard.
