From GhostbustersNews.Com –
Earlier tonight Will Deutschendorf took to social media to announce the unexpected passing of his twin brother Hank.
For those unaware both Will & Hank played the role of Baby Oscar in 1989’s Ghostbusters II.
Here’s an excerpt of the touching write up Will posted regarding his brother:
It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my twin brother, Hank. On Wednesday, June 14th, 2017, Henry John Deutschendorf II lost his battle with schizoaffective disorder.
Many people do not know much about Hank. Some knew him as Baby Oscar in Ghostbusters 2 or John Denver’s nephew. Others knew him as a brother, son, martial artist, teacher, uncle, or friend. What people do not know about Hank was that he suffered from schizoaffective disorder. It is a chronic mental health condition which is a combination of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. He experienced hallucinations, delusions, depression, and mania. It is a very severe mental illness that usually requires a lifetime of treatment. It is not well studied, so the treatment is largely an estimation based on schizophrenia and bipolar treatments.
Once again that’s strictly an excerpt and we suggest that everyone click here and head on over to the ‘Hank’s Hope For A Cure’ donation page. Read exactly what Hank was going through and think about donating to the cause as all funds raised will go directly to the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation.
Our thoughts are with Hank’s family and friends.
