I met Soupy a couple of times at Friends Old Time Radio Conventions. He was definitely having a hard time at the end of his life, paralyzed with MS, but the first time he appeared he could still sing and led the audience in two songs and hit our interviewer with a pie.

I must imagine he was a class act until the end.
