I first became familiar with Bobby Driscoll’s story in 2007 while at the age of 15, as a freshman in high school. What peaked my interest was wondering who voiced the character of Walt Disney’s Peter Pan, and ultimately Bobby’s name came up. Back then there was a website dedicated to Bobby where I learned about him.
Upon first visiting that website I felt this instant spiritual connection to the late actor. I didn’t know it then, but I felt this kinship with Bobby due to both my mother (meet at age 13 in 2004) and father (who I didn’t meet until age 21 in 2012) whom have had drug addiction problems.
I decided to make a website dedicated to Bobby back in April 2016. I decided this after helping film a documentary about Bobby and I felt after filming the documentary doing my own personal project on him with no other outside influences.
Furthermore, I learned in July 2020 that my father is now buried on Hart Island since 2017, because no one knew he was dead; no one claimed his body. My father died homeless while squatting in an abandoned building that caught fire from illegal drug use activity in November 2016.
