REPOST: 16 February 2006 – Frank Q. Dobbs Memorial Webpage
From: Sarah Nean Bruce
I am heartbroken about this. He was one of my biggest champions when I returned to Hollywood in 2000.
One of the people in my life who believed in me and encouraged me and even pitched me to his sacred contacts, especially important for me after being away from L.A. in Texas for seven years. He really helped me to jump-start my career back here – evidenced by my two films with Larry Levinson Productions for the Hallmark Channel. And I was his “number one supporter” & sidekick on several of his LLP shoots as well as championing his projects. I am so grateful for all the breakfasts we had – where we would ‘plot & scheme’ on how we would win the lottery, start our own film company to fund & make our own projects!
And I finally found out today what the Q really stood for… Frank Quinn Dobbs. Even though for years he wouldn’t tell me, I told him it didn’t matter – that to me, the Q was for Quasimoto – and that is what started our nicknames – he was Mr Quasi/Quazi and i was Ms Moto/Modo.
I have many great memories of Frank, including photos & a cameo in my short film, as well as hundreds of emails between us… and in a final email last month – he told me and some other friends how much he loved us… we love you, too Mr Quazi.
So as Frank would say: that’s the latest from Lake Woebegone.
