RIP Dom DeLuise :-(

Just a small blog about the loss of a very funny man who will be missed.

Most people my age will remember Dom as the beloved voice of 'Tiger' in the American Tail films, 'Jeremy the Crow' in the 'Secret of NIMH' films, 'Itchy' in the 'All Dogs go to Heaven' films and many more. Then, as I got older and discovered Mel Brooks' fabulous films, I got to see his wonderful comedy roles. (Blazing Saddles, Spaceballs, Cannonball)

Dom's voice is one of the main voices that I associate with my childhood so to lose such a legend is utterly tragic. He passed away in hospital yesterday - it's said to be kidney failure. Thankfully he was sleeping so he slipped away peacefully. He was 75.

Rest In Peace Dom. We'll remember you and treasure you.
