Saw this note posted by Brian Koci on Facebook this morning and wanted to pass it along since so many of us here know his dad Steve Koci (aka Halstaff), the go-to guy and master of animated props. He has been diagnosed with an aggressive Stage 4 brain tumor, and his doctors have told his family he is eligible for hospice.

I'm so sorry to hear this news. I have always enjoyed the posts and commentary by Halstaff. Best wishes to you mate, from over the pond. Stay strong.

Sad news indeed - I've thoroughly enjoyed Halstaff's posts and projects over the years on Haunt Forum. I'm not on Facebook, but sending positive thoughts and prayers into the universe for his recovery.

So sorry to hear this, sending good vibes, virtual hugs, warm thoughts and prayers. We have spoken on the forum before and Halstaff is a super guy and is incredibly giving of both his time and expertise. We are all richer for knowing you. Keep fighting.

You requested pics and video so posting a pic for you. I hope this comes through, I’ve never posted it before and 2020 was her big debut. If it wasn’t for guys like Halstaff, I would have never attempted something like this. Don’t think I can embed a video to show it in action.

Very creative! Hairazor, you have to work a motor in and make Halstaff proud! Maybe have the head tilt up and the eyes light up?

Another update from Facebook - Steve (aka Halstaff) underwent surgery a few days ago and most of the tumor was successfully removed. He is undergoing physical and speech therapy and (I believe) is now home.
