Andy Williams, R. I. P.

One of my alltime favorite singers has died. He was 84 and died of bladder cancer. "Moon River" was one of the best songs ever. We watched his show when I was little. 'Moon River' singer Andy Williams dead at 84 - WBTV 3 News, Weather, Sports, and Traffic for Charlotte, NC

Oh, no. He has been a favorite of my family for so many years. When our son was just a baby he watched it with fervor - calling him Dandy Lilliams. We've teased him about that for years.

Andy Williams had the kind of personality that made you feel like he was a good friend, sweet but not saccharine - back when entertainment seemed kinder and gentler, and entertainers weren't afraid or embarrassed to keep it clean. Loved his show, his style..

I went to see him in concert here in the UK about 10 years ago, he was fabulous. At the end of the concert lots of women went down to the front to the stage and I thought, oh yes I will too. He sang Danny Boy straight to me, very sweet, never forgotten it!
