Voice Chasers is saddened to learn that character actor George DiCenzo passed away on August 9th at the age of 70. He had been in poor health since a near-fatal accident a few years ago.

DiCenzo worked as a voice-over actor in both commercials and animation. His more notable voice credits include the villain Hordak on Filmation's He-Man spin-off, She-Ra, Princess of Power. He also played Bow and other minor characters on the series. DiCenzo also voiced Captain Lou Albano (the real-life wrestler and voice actor that died nearly a year ago) on Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling, John Blackstar on the 1981 series, Blackstar, and did several guest appearances on shows like Animaniacs and DuckTales.

He had a large on-screen presence in several series such as The Waltons, Hawaii Five-O, and NYPD Blue. One of his more memorable roles was that of Sam Baines in Back to the Future, the father of Marty's mother who appears during Marty's visit to 1955.

Donations may be made in his name to a Woman's Place, P.O. Box 299, Doylestown, PA 18901.

Variety has posted an obituary for the actor.
