John Uhler Lemmon III, b. Feb. 8, 1925; d. Jun. 27, 2001.
Wife for the last forty years of his life was Felicia Farr. He had two children, one by his first wife (Cynthia Stone) and one by his second wife (Felicia). The children are Chris and Courtney.
He was a Harvard graduate, and served in the Naval Reserve as a Communications Officer during WWII.
He was an actor in many films (though he did direct one film, Kotch). He was mostly known for his comedic work, but movies like Days of Wine and Roses show that he was a very adept actor who could easily tackle drama.
He won two oscars over the years, one in 1956 for Supporting Actor in Mister Roberts as Ensign Pulver, and another in 1974 for Best Actor in Save the Tiger. He was nominated another six times for the films, Some Like It Hot, The Apartment, Days of Wine and Roses, The China Syndrome, Tribute, and Missing.
He is very much missed.
