RIP Johnny Grant 1923-2008

Johnny Grant, Honorary Mayor of Hollywood died Wednesday of natural causes. He was 84. Johnny oversaw the Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremonies and for years organized the Hollywood Christmas Parade. I was able to meet him on two occasions and had the above photo taken with him about a month and a half ago.
Johnny gets his own star, above, and a wax version of Mr. Grant can be found at the Hollywood Wax Museum, below.
