The passing of Peter Mayhew has taken us all by surprise. However, he left a mark on this world like no other.
The family of Peter Mayhew, with deep love and sadness, regrets to share the news that Peter has passed away. He left us the evening of April 30, 2019 with his family by his side in his North Texas home. pic.twitter.com/YZ5VLyuK0u— Peter Mayhew (@TheWookieeRoars) May 2, 2019

Sad to hear Peter Mayhew passed away.— Dan Slott (@DanSlott) May 3, 2019
I'd see him at cons, always smiling, always great w/ fans.
1 day I was alone on a road, heading to a show in Cardiff, Mr. Mayhew whizzed by on his scooter, said "Hi!" & waved.
I remember thinking, "Chewie waved to me!"
Had me grinning all day
RIP Peter Mayhew, please send our love to Carrie Fisher. pic.twitter.com/QcBmzByEYb— David Leavitt (@David_Leavitt) May 2, 2019

He was the gentlest of giants-A big man with an even bigger heart who never failed to make me smile & a loyal friend who I loved dearly-I'm grateful for the memories we shared & I'm a better man for just having known him.

RIP Peter Mayhew. To create a beloved character with warmth and humor is a testament to any actorís spirit. To do it under a half ton of yak hair takes a true legend. ❤️❤️— Rian Johnson (@rianjohnson) May 3, 2019
RIP Peter Mayhew. A towering figure in the Star Wars franchise, the 7'2" actor created an indelible character as Chewbacca, showing children everywhere not every fearsome creature is necessarily a monster.— CinemaSpection (@cinemaspection) May 3, 2019
Just like Chewie, Mayhew deserved to get a medal too. He will be missed. pic.twitter.com/Oi2MJy78Xe

Peter Mayhew created one of the greatest film characters of all time. Chewbacca was funny, courageous, and caring. He did it all without the benefit of speech, just that vocal growly cry that 1 in 100 fans can do real well when they're drunk. He was always really nice to me.#RIP— alan tudyk (@AlanTudyk) May 3, 2019

"We are deeply saddened today by the news of Peter Mayhewís passing. Since 1976, Peterís iconic portrayal of the loyal, lovable Chewbacca has been absolutely integral to the characterís success, and to the Star Wars saga itself."-Kathleen Kennedy.— Star Wars (@starwars) May 3, 2019
