Russell Hampshire founder of VCA Passed Away Today

News broke today that Russell Hampshire, founder of VCA Pictures passed away today. He seems to have succumbed to his failing kidneys which he has been fighting for awhile now. He is survived by his wife Betty, and his sons Scott and Michael.

On January 18, his wife posted this message on his Facebook account as an update to his friends.

“Day 14 of no Dialysis! He’s having dilirium and confusion, so started him on some new meds to help. He’s not forming sentences as well, and nods off constantly. The stress of this is so surreal. I’m going to get a 90 min massage, neck and back are so tweaked. I was up with him from 1:30Am till 5:00AM, I wish he could stay asleep. poor guy :(”

Long time friend and industry visionary Michael Ninn had this to say about his passing.

    Russ, may you RIP. You had a hand in building the adult film industry, for that you should be proud. Now you are in Heaven with most of the Golden Age performers, may you film the raunchiest porn possible there and may St. Peter hand me a big box of porn DVDs filmed in Heaven upon my arrival.
