R.I.P. Gary Owens

By all accounts a true prince of a guy, the image of Gary Owens, hand cupped to his ear, on mike in an old fashioned recording studio, is an indelible one from my childhood. Over time his facial hair and his ties grew hipper but Gary always maintained a "fish out of water" voice and style on LAUGH-IN. He was also a major cartoon voice actor, principally remembered as the voice of SPACE GHOST and ROGER RAMJET!

Rest in Peace, sir!
And thanks!
