Fernwood Flasher

The nickname of Grandfather Raymond Larkin (Victor Kilian) on the soap opera satire MARY HARTMAN, MARY HARTMAN/SYN/1976-77.

Grandpa Larkin earned the moniker “The Fernwood Flasher” for his habit of running around the small Midwest town of Fernwood, Ohio and exposing his aging naughty bits to an unsuspecting public.

Note: In 1979, Raymond Larkin was clubbed to death while watching TV in his Hollywood apartment.


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina. Mr. Holst is also the author of the children’s books “Norman the Troll,” "Norman the Troll and the Haunted House," and "Gretchen and the Gremlins." In addition, he penned the fantasy novel “The Adventures of Glinda Gale,” a retelling of “The Wizard of Oz" and the reference text “The Encyclopedia of Movie and TV Insults.” .
