hey Jack, nice to see you back on here. Not sure exactly who that was but somebody did ask this question on another thread. Anyway welcome back- stop by the episode discussion thread... and tell us what ya thought :D

(Nanatoo @ Jan 29 2009, 11:32 PM) Posted ImageAt the end of the show tonight there was a memorial for Jose Duarte. Who is he and what was his association with the show?
I looked it up on imdb http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0239107/
If this is the same person it says he was a Filmographer. He sadly passed away in August 2008.
That is so kind of them to honor him. May he rest in peace.
Peace, Gia

JOSE DUARTE Died Aug. 24, 2008

Art director and scenic artist Jose Duarte died at age 73. Mr. Duarte worked on a number of feature films produced in South Florida. He was production designer on the thriller "Midnight Crossing." Mr. Duarte was art director on several films including the horror movies "The Unholy" and "The Funhouse." His many scenic artist credits include "Smokey and the Bandit," "Hoot," "From Justin to Kelly," "There's Something About Mary," "Miami Blues," "Married to the Mob," "Police Academy 5," "Revenge of the Nerds II," "Making Mr. Right" and "Porky's 3."

Thanks for the info on Jose Duarte. I'm sorry to hear of his passing. It sounds like he was quite important to Florida's entertainment/filming industry.

NatashaFatale, thank you for the links. I especially loved this part of the obituary in the Miami Herald, where they make mention that he was affectionately known as Pepe:

...Pepe, as he was affectionately known, declined many offers to go to Hollywood to remain close to his family and friends. His wisdom, compassion and humor will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Graveside service 1:00 PM Tuesday (today) at Vista Memorial Gardens, Hialeah. Arrangements by Caballero Rivero Woodlawn Funeral Home 305-888-6792. To visit this Guest Book Online, go to www.MiamiHerald.com/obituaries.


My heartfelt sympathies to Mr. Duarte's family and friends.

[edited to add: JackDempsey, it's great to see you.]

thanks for the info to all who found it. I figured he was a crew member. Most shows usually post a dedication after an episode. I had heard of a Mario Duarte because he was in the telenovela Yo Soy Betty La Fea. It's sad. But he had a nice resume of shows he did.
