New Hampshire, U.S.
(Not sure if this should go in the Voice Actors Appreciation Society due to his significance to a certain franchise, but since he was primarily in the music field, I figured I'd post this here)

Jack Sheldon, best known for singing on numerous Schoolhouse Rock! episodes, including "Conjunction Junction" and "I'm Just a Bill", passed away on December 27. SH! alumni Bob Dorough (who also wrote many of the songs) and Grady Tate both died not long ago, along with Blossom Dearie a decade ago.

Besides Schoolhouse Rock!, Sheldon was a performer and the musical director for The Merv Griffin Show. He starred in the short-lived 1960s sitcom Run, Buddy, Run and later became a recurring actor on Dragnet. He was a guest voice actor on episodes of The Simpsons, Family Guy and Johnny Bravo, and contributed to the soundtrack of the Teacher's Pet movie.

As a trumpet player, he performed with names such as Art Pepper, Sonny Stitt, Stan Kenton, Johnny Mandel, Herbie Mann, The Monkees and Tom Waits, in addition to his own career.

I remember his voice role as the Amendment To Be in a Schoolhouse Rock parody for The Simpsons episode "The Day Violence Died".

It took me all day and most of the month, but I finally got my 2 laptops upgraded (SSD, new RAM, replaced any and all broken parts, full cleanup of useless programs and salvaging useful ones). It was rough work, but I enjoyed every minute of it!

Someday, I'm gonna do this for a living, honestly.
