Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but did someone read or see an article of the passing of Wizzo the Magician?

Is there an article posted?


Please let me know,,,,


Thanks,

Do you mean MARSHALL BRODIEN?

He worked as Whizzo, on WGN-TV'BOZO SHOW for years.

Marshhall probably sold more Svengali Decks (TV Magic Cards) than anyone in history.

Marshall Brodien has not passed. He is in a memory care unit - while has Alzheimer’s, his physical health is currently ok. Thanks.

Thanks Mark. I hadn't heard his name mentioned recently. I knew about the Alzheimer's.

I remember fondly, his back yard pool parties, years ago.

Hi Dick. Good to see you here. Will you be in Colon in August? Regarding Marshall, I suspect that all of the Chicago crew have fond memories. Marshall is one of the most genuine and generous people in magic. Alzheimers is a cruel disease that steals our loved ones a little bit at a time. Keep him (and Mary) in your prayers.

Hi Mark! Doubt that I'll make it to Colon. I'm in VA Hospital, getting daily radiation treatments for cancer. I'm very familiar with Alzheimer's. I had to quit a tour of fairs, to go home to care for my mother, in '85. Yup, Prayers help!

Dick --

Congratulations on getting the Foley out. This is really great. It will allow you to get "out and about" much more frequently, right?
