Goodbye, Mr. Miyagi

Pat Morita, a sickly child who was told he would never walk (and didn't until he was eleven), later became the most famous fictional karate sensei in history as Mr. Miyagi. He died of natural causes on Thanksgiving at his Los Angeles home. He was 73.

He will be missed.

Pat Morita will be missed by many of the older crowd. He was a great mentor in the Karate Kid series, but I loved his humor in Happy Days. I always enjoyed films with Pat Morita. I'm sorry to hear of his passing.
