Aldo Columbini passes 2/12/2014

The world of magic lost one of its greatest contributors this Wednesday when Aldo Columbini passed away from the complications of a stroke he suffered last Sunday.
A lot will be said about Aldo from people who were fortunate to call him a close friend.

Even with him working almost everywhere all the time it was always great to see him work as he always had something new and fresh prepared for the audience. He was a great entertainer and at the same time was capable of executing the most difficult sleights seemingly without effort. He was a great scholar in many aspects of magic and his body of published work will be hard to match by anyone.

Equally important, he was a nice man and you wanted to be around him .
His status in our magic community was very much on top but he never let his fame come between him and the audience. He was approachable and made you feel important.

Aldo’s love for life is well documented. Aldo will be remembered as the consumate entertainer and live on thru his body of published work.

Our prayers and thoughts are with his wife Rachel and the family.
Aldo, thanks for making us laugh.
