Andy Williams dies at age 84

Andy Williams
I just now saw the news that iconic singer Andy Williams has died at the age of 84 after a battle with bladder cancer.

Williams had a very distinct voice, and a style that reached across generations, young and old alike.  He was famous for standards like "Moon River" and "Can't Help Falling In Love."  As for me, I'll always fondly remember a time in my childhood, sitting in a cafe somewhere in Idaho on a long trip to Utah, and enjoying the fact that someone had decided to play "Can't Get Used To Losing You" on the jukebox.

And, speaking of Utah, if it weren't for Andy Williams, we might not have been introduced to The Osmonds in the same manner.

Rest in peace, Andy.
