His daughter was also killed in the attack. Both were in town for a wedding.

This totally blows ass!

On a high note, I believe he had his son working with him on the Halloween series so hopefully it will live on. I watched an interview with him on one of the Halloween special editions and his plan was to keep the series alive as long as possbile.
