Harry Carey Jr. passed away on Dec. 27, 2012. I first met Harry back in the 1990s at the various western film festivals that I attended. I published the book, "John Wayne - An American Legend," and contacted Harry to do a tribute. He did and had some nice comments on the movies he worked on with the Duke. He was living in Durango, Colo., and I visited this area many times as I was involved with the Durango Film Festival, which he was also involved. I spent time at his home looking at his vast collection of movie memorabilia.
