The Best Dad a Monster Kid Could Ever Have!

Gene W. Owens

Jan. 23, 1940 – Aug. 20, 2018

When I told my father I wanted to set my alarm to wake up at midnight so I could watch The Ghost of Frankenstein on Sleepwalker’s Matinee with Count Gregor, he asked, “Why?  They speak pig Latin.”  At that age, I didn’t know if he was being serious or not, and when I groggily began watching the movie despite his warning, I half-expected to find English subtitles.

This is one of the first Monster Kid experiences that I remember, and I’m so grateful today that I have a memory of Dad associated with it. I’ll never forget you, Dad.  I love you.
