I was once on Bruce Cervon’s list of friends! I just discovered an email I got in February 2000 and completely forgot about it.
I had met Walter Cummings at a SCM convention here in Toronto in the 70s. Hilarious and incredible sleight-of-hand. A great loss.

Don’t know if you knew this but Walter “Moves” Cummings was a fixture at
the Magic Castle in the very early days. Jay Ose dubbed him “Moves”. Was
a teacher at Chavez once I believe. I always wondered if I’d run in to
him again. I guess not, a shame. Another great character in magic
history is gone.
