TV's 'People Are Funny' host Art Linkletter dies at 97

Canadian born put up for adoption at birth. Age 7 family moved and settled in San Diego, Ca.
Graduated 1934 San Diego state University, English Major. Was going to teach, then found his voice on radio. 1950s & 60's TV show host. Married in 1935, was still married at his death. I am sure you younger ones have no idea who this is, but us old farts will remember.
I believe he wrote a book, titled " Old Age is Not for Sissies"

RIP.

Picture was taken in 2009...
