Does anyone know if this wonderful performer is still alive, and if so, how he might be contacted?

I've seen his act several times in person and on television. A delightful mix of magic and pickpocketing that was charming, entertaining and utterly professional.

I met him in Chicago when he appeared at the Empire Room in the Palmer House many many moons ago. He had the neatest "Trailer/Boat" combo for fishing or camping. He came out to the house a few times during his run. The last I saw him was about in the 70's in Vegas. We'd taken a buddy of mine and his fiance/wife there to get married and saw his show.

Interesting guy.
