So Long, Luis Avalos

Thank you to Trevor Kimble and Derek Tague for calling my attention to the recent passing of Luis Avalos, who played Gen. Sandia, El Puerco’s nemesis – and the officer who oversaw the “execution” by firing squad of Jessica – in Season 4 of Soap.

Avalos was of course best known by a generation of children as Roberto on The Electric Company, and for regular roles on everything from Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper to E/R.

One never knows what to say at times like this; perhaps it’s best to remove one’s hat, bow one’s head, and simply say “Thank you for all the years of entertainment. We hope we were a deserving audience.”
