Garry Marshall (November 13, 1934 - July 19, 2016)
Another legend in the world of entertainment has left us. He was 81.
Marshall was a very prolific director, producer, writer, and even actor. He created some of the most memorable TV shows of all time, such as Happy Days, Mork & Mindi, Laverne & Shirley, and The Odd Couple. He was nominated for 5 Primetime Emmy Awards for his work in television.
He's also the one who turned Julia Roberts into a superstar when he picked her to star in his Pretty Woman, and he directed one of my favorite cinematic weepers: Beaches.
