He was a great person. Too bad Hollywood no longer has people of his caliber.

RIP. He was truly a remarkably great person. Ditto the comment regarding his character. He was a gem.

I didn't know he was still, alive. I remember when his daughter died and his book 'Kids Say the Darnedest Things.'

About 1960, Art Linkletter came to Mpls. to do a show called End Of The Rainbow. The show consisted of remodeling a small neighborhood store into a small super market after sending the owner on a trumped up vacation. I would like more information on this. I supervised the project for Adolfon and Peterson Construction Co.
