A longtime voiceover actor, best known for his work on AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead,” died after a midair collision during a jump at a Southeast Texas skydiving center Saturday.

The Houston-area center, Skydive Spaceland, said in a statement that two seasoned skydivers deployed parachutes normally during a planned group jump on Saturday, but that they later collided and fell to the ground, killing one and injuring the other.

 “Both jumpers had made at least one successful skydive earlier that day, had hundreds or thousands of skydives each, and were jumping their own parachute systems. Both jumpers deployed their parachutes normally and collided afterward. They sustained injuries in the collision and/or on landing, and one did not survive. Weather was not a factor.”

The man who died was identified by his longtime agent as Randy Schell, who worked as a voiceover actor for more than 25 years.

Schell’s voice could be heard on commercials for different television shows, including “Fear the Walking Dead.”

Schell’s familiar voice has been heard in commercials for McDonald’s, Coca-Cola, Geico, Nike and Levi’s, among many others, and his promos include spots for NBC’s Blindspot and History’s American Restoration. According to his website, randyschell.com, Schell did voice work for radio and TV stations in Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston, Denver, Miami, Detroit, New Orleans, San Antonio, Austin, Salt Lake City, Tampa and for the ABC Radio Networks.

He also narrated nearly 500 episodes of “Judge Alex,” a syndicated reality court show.

His agent, Jenny Bosby, on Sunday described Schell as a “generous, spirited man” who mentored many in his industry.

Our thoughts are with Schell’s loved ones during this time.

God Bless.
