We remember actor Robert Guillaume who passed away Tuesday after a battle with prostate cancer. Guillaume was best known for his Emmy award winning title role in the TV series Benson from 1979-1986. You may have recognized his voice in The Lion King as Rafiki, the role in which he won a Grammy. We will remember Guillaume for his works in Lean on Me, Soap (Emmy win) and Broadway productions The Phantom of the Opera and Guys and Dolls. The actor leaves behind his wife Donna Guillaume, son and three daughters. Donna said, "He kinda went the way everyone wishes they could, surrounded by love and in his sleep." Our thoughts are prayers are with the family.
