"Star Wars" Fan Changes His Name To Darth Vader!

Hall created two casts inspired by Star Wars for a 1-year-old patient at her D.C. hospital

Mr. Vader, who runs his own gym, said he used his name to raise money for a number of causes in the town of Canandaigua, including the local food pantry, The Salvation Army and military veterans.

The 30-year-old pastor said he and fellow pastor Ulrike Garve, 29, are both fans of the Star Wars films the seventh instalment of which, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", opened in cinemas on Friday.

Vader also battled with leukemia and a serious bone disorder since he was diagnosed in 2002. He doesn't wear a mask like the Sith Lord in his driver's license photo, but the ID does, in fact, name him as "Darth Vader" of Canandaigua. He is now on the Bone Marrow Transplant list at Seattle's VA Puget Sound Health Care System in Washington state. "It keeps my mind off doctor's appointments, of all that I've gone through, am going through and will continue to go through".

"Star Wars" fan Eric Welch legally changed his name to Darth Vader a year ago, the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reports.

"I wanted to do something of my own", he said. "I don't want to give anything away". He likes to test his toughness by competing in half-marathons and other endurance events.

A screen set up next to the altar showed a clip from a Star Wars movie in which Luke Skywalker fights off Darth Vader and declares to The Emperor that he will never turn to the Dark Side.

"It was kind of like a snake shedding the skin type of thing", Vader said. "Got to love Darth Vader".

"The goal is to find a better coach and I think we have a tremendous opportunity in Don Brown to accomplish that goal", Harbaugh said.

Plus, I'm sure he gets weird looks every-time he's carded.
