We will never forget how he supported his ex-wife when she was brought up on murder charges. That showed real class.

I can't remember ever hearing anything bad about this man. No scandals or drunken car accidents. He was a real star and a great guy. Unfortunate that the youngsters of today that are stuck with so-called celebrities like Snookie, Lohan, Kardashian, Bynes and the rest of these nut-cases they fawn over will never know what real celebrities are like. Rest in Peace, Andy Williams.

Andy Williams was definitely one of the great singers of his time, with the likes of Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc. He was a real crooner, and will be missed. I always listened to his songs at Xmas time, and to me always made me happy listening to his music. May he R.I.P. He lived a good life. God Bless him and his family.....much love. A true gentleman...

I grew up in Des Moines, always aware of the Williams Bros. and their music. They were superb. He will surely be missed.
