Yes, I know about his politics and some choices I may not agree with.  It doesn't change the fact that he was a class act, a lovely voice, and a true gentleman.  Good night ANDY, we love you. 
Here's one of my favorites:

To his other accomplishments, you can add that for many years, he sponsored a golf tournament at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego County, California, the Andy Williams Pro-Am.

And a nice myth, but Lauren Bacall did her own singing in "To Have and Have Not" from 1944. Her singing was not dubbed by Andy Williams.

R.I.P. Andy.

I always associate Williams with Christmas when I was a kid. Every December, the parents' vinyl Christmas LPs would come out, most of them dating from around the early 60s. Of all of them, I remember hearing Andy Williams the most, with Johnny Mathis a close second.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
