Two-time Oscar winner Jack Lemmon passed away last night at the USC/Norris Cancer Center. The comedian has been suffering from cancer for months now and last night he said good-bye.
His wife Felicia, stepdaughter and two children were at his bedside. The 76 year old actor won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in 1956 for Mister Roberts and Best Actor in 1974 for Save The Tiger.
We can only imagine Walter Matthau was waiting at those "Pearly Gates" for his good friend, far from Grumpy and always the Odd Couple.
