Ollie Johnston will be missed for certain. He was an inspirational animator for five decades with the Walt Disney Studios from the 1930s thru the 1980s. His work will stand the test of time for generations.

Rest in peace Ollie. Frank is up in heaven waiting for you.

Rest in Peace, Ollie. Your talent and skills shine bright through each animated feature you worked on and will be seen for generations yet to come. Heaven has all nine men together again and the angels excitedly wait for new features from the gang.
