Being a big fan of sci-fi/fantasy, he was one of the actors that would show up frequently and I always loved his presence. He also had such a soothing voice, too, which makes him one of my top 5 narrators as well. I'm sad to see him go, but after hearing that he was still suffering from complications from cancer, I'm just hoping he is at peace now. So long, Storyteller.

Jurt was a very versatile and talented actor as he proved so often in the variety of roles he played over the years.  He was not above parodying himself either as he proved in that moment in Spaceballs.
