RIP Mike Road (1918-2013)

Just heard today that Mike Road, the voice of Race Bannon passed on.  He was a fine actor in film and movies, but he's mostly known as Race's voice.  He also was the voice of Zandor of The Herculoids fame.  He also did a lot of other voices for Hanna-Barbera, usually secondary characters in those very shows.
I can't believe I don't have a good picture of Zandor on my computer,  These two of Race in action will have to do.

He did voice acting until 1981, which leads me to believe his voicing Zandor in the new Herculoids episodes on the Space Stars was his last work.  He also did Reed Richards on the 1978 The New Fantastic Four cartoon series, which I liked except for HERBIE of course.

RIP Mike Road.
