Gene Wilder Died Today. He Was 83. #GeneWilder

Gene Wilder

Gene Wilder, one of my favorite all-time comedians, died today from complications of Alzheimer's Disease.  He was 83 years old.

For several decades of my life, Gene Wilder was a name that would bring a smile to my face.  He was fantastic in "Blazing Saddles" and "Young Frankenstein," as well as "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory."  The first two films mentioned were a source of great belly laughs to me and my family.  He was truly a very funny guy.

Gene was once married to Saturday Night Live star Gilda Radner, until she died of ovarian cancer in 1989.

I'll miss him.
