On this day in Horror History, Fred Gwynne was born. Gwynne would give cinema and television many of beloved roles starring in such films as The Cotton Club (1984), Ironweed (1987), Disorganized Crime (1989) and Pet Sematary (1989). After a long battle with cancer, Gwynne passed away in Taneytown, Maryland on July 2, 1993. He will forever be remembered and loved for the talent that helped bring Herman Munster into the hearts and memories of families worldwide.
“Funny thing, yesterday morning I found my youngest son and daughter watching the rerun of an old ("The Munsters" (1964)) episode and I said, "My God, THAT'S not still on, is it?" Well, even so, I was very lucky and it was great fun to be as much of a household product as something like Rinso. I almost wish I could do it all over again.” - Fred Gwynne
He also wrote and illustrated several children's books.

Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.
I will dance in the sun wearing wildflowers in my hair.
