Passings ~ Don LaFontaine

Yesterday we lost one of the entertainment industry’s greatest contributors, Don LaFontaine.The name might not be familiar but his voice will be. Mr. LaFontaine did a ton of voice over work focusing on movie trailers that usually started with the phrase “In a world” and of course this GEICO commercial.


On a personal note, I had the pleasure of meeting Don and his family through his daughter and my daughter’s friendship. He was a true gentleman and will be missed by many. My condolences to the the LaFontaine family.

  1. Thats too bad JAE! He was great! I never knew what he looked like? Just like when Mel Blanc died. Lost a true treasure.
