How sad - he will be missed by so many.:( He died on my birthday.

I wonder if Claudine will come out of seclusion to attend his funeral?

I grew up listening to his albums. His recording of Moon River is the greatest IMO bar none. RIP.

His rendition on "Oh Holy Night" is one of the most beautiful I've ever heard. In fact, his whole Christmas album is wonderful.

As a little girl, I watched his show with my family. He introduced me to my first hearthrob, Donny Osmond, back when I was only 5. Fond memories...he will be missed.

I did not realize he was that old (84). I liked his singing. RIP.

Loved his show back in my high school days. Beautiful voice. I never hear any version of "Moon River" without comparing it to his.

RIP---memories of "Moon River" and Christmas music on the big blond hi-fi in the living room when I was a kid.

Living so close to Branson, MO we always got the commercials during Christmas of his singing "The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" while they promoted all the shows and events in the area. Because of that, he'll always remind me of Christmas. RIP Andy.

Another legend passes away. So sad. As ABBA would have put it, thank you for the music. RIP

He was great friends with Robert & Ethel Kennedy and sang Battle Hymn of the Republic (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVF6uFanJxs) at RFK's funeral (http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/09/when-andy-williams-sang-at-bobby-kennedys-funeral/262880/). He also sang it in private when he walked up to the casket whilst JFK was lying in state. Unrehearsed and unfilmed, he refused to sing it again for the camera's stating that it was for JFK alone.
