Pour One Out For: Andrew “Boner” Koenig 8/17/1968 – 2/25/2010

Andrew Koenig, son of Walter “Chekov” Koenig and best buds with Kirk Cameron’s character Mike Seaver on Growing Pains, was thought to be missing since February 14th.  Unfortunately, he was found dead on the 25th in Stanley Park in Vancouver.  FOXNews has the details:

“The body of Andrew Koenig, the actor best known for his role as Richard “Boner” Stabone in the ABC sitcom “Growing Pains” and son of original “Star Trek” star Walter Koenig, was discovered by police in Vancouver almost two weeks after he was reported missing. He was 41.”

While doing some research on this dude, I found out that he played The Joker in a little Batman/Aliens/Predator fan film titled Batman:  Dead End.  Needless to say I was shocked when I discovered it was Boner behind that sinister make-up.

Here’s the film:

I honestly don’t know what’s sadder; being found alone and dead in the middle of one of the largest urban parks in North America, forever being remembered as that dude on Growing Pains who’s name stands for an erect penis, or getting eaten to death by a xenomorph?  All are rather depressing.
