I know, two sad posts in a row and right before a holiday. I’m going to need to pick up an extra 12-pack tonight. Well, Larry Harmon, a longtime Bozo the Clown, died today of congestive heart failure at the age 83. His publicist said he passed away at home.
Larry wasn’t the original Bozo, but he believed the clown could become a major star, so he bought the licensing rights to the character. Eventually, he licensed Bozo out to dozens of TV stations.
His wifey of 29 years said, “He was the most optimistic man I ever met. He always saw a bright side; he always had something good to say about everybody. He was the love of my life.”
Larry is off to the Big Top in the sky! May he rest in peace……
