PAUL L. NEWMAN
January 26, 1925 to September 25, 2008
“There’s a point where feelings go beyond words,” Robert Redford said of the passing of his dear friend and favorite co-star, Paul Newman. “My life – and this country – is better for his having been in it.” (The two are shown above in their signature roles as Butch Cassidy (Newman) and the Sundance Kid (Redford) in a still from the 1969 20th Century Fox film.)

What else is there to say, except that Paul Newman made darn good salad dressing (Newman’s Own) and created a haven for kids with serious medical conditions (cancer, sickle cell anemia, HIV, etc.) at his Hole in the Wall Gang Camps – the name of which sprang from the gang Butch Cassidy’s bunch joined in the late 1800s. He not only was good, he did good – in every single area of his life.
