I hadn't thought about him in a long time. I didn't know whether or not he was still alive.

An interesting man, with endless intellectual curiosity;  struck me as a temperate and kind individual.  RIP.

Carson's sidekick was Ed McMahon. Hugh Downs was a game show host, his most famous one was Concentration.

I'm stunned that he was alive until now!

 

Like oznell, I always thought he was an articulate, curious and intelligent man.

 

May he rest in peace!

He was Jack Paar's sidekick on the "Tonight" show, Shelbelle and Mz iMac.

 

As someone with a bright mind himself, Paar needed someone who could keep up with him.
