taking one frame at a time since 1999

Hello my name is Robert,
I am a stop motion animator who's interested in the history of stop motion and puppetry I am trying to make a list of stop motion puppet makers who have passed as a remembrance and tribute to them.

I already have Marcel Delgado and Art Clokey who I think made his own gummy possible models, correct me if I'm wrong.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0167029/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

Im looking for more puppet makers to complete my list I'm trying my best not to leave anyone out, these people need a good remembrance they were the greats!

If you can help at all, I'm looking for any type of puppet maker for stop motion foam,clay,silicone,wood,metal,etc

Thanks for your time and help.

Oh oops! I missed that they're supposed to be passed on..  all the ones I mentioned are still alive and kickin'. But one day this post will be relevant!  

Jim Danforth and Randy Cook both made AMAZING puppets!!

Keep in mind, this is about puppetmakers who have shuffled off the mortal coil, hopped the twig, kicked the bucket, turned up their toes, cashed in their chips, expired, departed, passed on and crossed over!  And those two gentlemen, I'm pleased to say, don't qualify!

It was a nice effort fantamation but they are indeed alive not dead, though I will use the. For my tribute of alive puppet makers im currently trying to find out the deceased ones so I can honor their memory the way I can.

Lou Bunin is a deceased puppet maker

If anyone can help me find more Id be grateful thanks, I wonder why it's easier to find directors of old animated movies rather than animators and puppet makers.
