Gene Autry
[Gene Autry]
September 29, 1907 - October 2, 1998
Singer, acter, producer and writer Orvon Gene Autry was the first of the singing cowboys in film and on radio, appearing in almost a hundred films and making over 600 recordings. He is also the only person to date to receive five stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for contributions in all five possible categories.
His most lasting legacy may be for penning the perennial Christmas favorites, "Here Comes Santa Claus" (1947), "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" (1949) and "Frosty the Snow Man" (1950).
His gravestone records that he was a 33rd Degree Mason.
