Disney Legend Passes Away

Richard M. Sherman, known for creating songs for films like “Mary Poppins,” died at 95 on Saturday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. His wife, Elizabeth Gluck, and children, Gregory, Victoria, and Lynda, survive him.

A funeral will be held on May 31 at Hillside Memorial Park Cemetery in Culver City, California.

Sherman and his brother Robert B. Sherman won numerous accolades, including two Oscars and three Grammy Awards. Disney CEO Bob Iger said, “Richard Sherman was the embodiment of what it means to be a Disney Legend.”

Pixar’s Pete Docter praised Sherman’s “infectious joy for life,” and film historian Leonard Maltin highlighted the Sherman brothers’ optimistic outlook, noting, “Their music had an upbeat outlook that spilled over into Richard’s life.”

Sherman’s career included scores for “Mary Poppins,” “The Jungle Book,” and “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.” The Sherman brothers were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005 and named Disney Legends in 1990.
