    Last week while waking to the haunted mansion I was telling my fam and friends about how amazing his career was. Do some googling and I think everyone would be shocked to see just how much he did with his life, both in and out of Disney's realm.

    I will be thinking about him all the more this weekend when I am back at the park. Be sure to return the grin and wink to the far right (if I recall) projected bust in the HM.
