He was a very private man off screen I remember seeing him when I was on a family vacation in CA,when I was little maybe 8 or 9? And he was eating at a Resturant we were having dinner at.. The people would NOT leave him alone..Bugged him and his company,, I remember he was getting a little perturbed and every time he looked our way I would smile and look away as not to bug him like the other groupies were. As he was leaving he walked past our table and said very sweetly to my Mom you've got a beautiful daughter there, she has the eyes of a angel !! (if he only knew LOL LOL) He patted my head and walked away.. My Mom sat there stunned and my Dad just beamed....I'll never forget that night !!
