A Disney Imagineer who helped create such classics as Pirates of the Caribbean and Haunted Mansion amongst others. He wrote the songs 'Grim Grinning Ghosts' and 'Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life For Me)'.

Very sad day indeed. He will be missed. One good thing is that he will be able to ride the Original "Pirates of the Caribbean" in the sky. There's no "Boyscouts of the Caribbean" up there. All I can say is what an amazing songwriter, animator, and Imagineer!
Another of the original old-school Imagineers passing.
The true 1,000th happy haunt...?
"They have all retired here to the Haunted Mansion. Actually we have 999 happy haunts here, but there's room for one thousand. Any volunteers?? If you should decide to join us, final arrangements may be made at the end of the tour."
