This past Tuesday, January 28, Tom Sherak who was a former president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences passed away. He lost his battle to prostate cancer, which he was battling for twelve years. As a member of the Academy, I got the opportunity to meet him at various events and I can say that he was a very well respected person with such knowledge and passion for television and film. Earlier before his death he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, which he could not attend due to the severity of his health.
The following is a picture I made the night he died, which was posted on my social media sites.
