    A True Entertainer that wanted to do nothing more than entertain.
    His demons were his blessings.

    So many of us weigh the checks and balances of what we want to give to the World. Most want to just be "successful", or "rich".
    Some of us can't help what we do.

    John Candy...
    One of the greats.

    Count me into the John Candy fan club. He was/is one of my favorites. There was just something so genuine about him to me.

    Wow, it's been 25 years? I was thinking 15. Damn time is flying. That would suggest he died before I was even drinking age! (legal anyhow!)

    He sits in my book as one of the most iconic actors of all time. (not the top, but way up there)\

    One of my favorite comedies with him and the late great Richard Pryor. I love this (Brewster's Millions) movie!

    Man he was only 43 when he passed. That seemed so old back then to me.

    Underrated actor. Should have gotten more roles outside comedy. Showed his dramatic range in JFK.
