Wilford Brimley has passed at age 85

The first thing I remember seeing him in was a show Our House. I dont remember much about it as I was very young but before each commercial the scene would freeze, turn black and white and form a picture collage.


I also remember he was in the Quaker Oats commercials, to the point that I think of him whenever I would make Oatmeal for myself as a kid.


Last year we watched The Thing and despite seeing it before I was surprised to find out Wilford Brimley was even in it, because I always expect to see him with that mustache.


These days everyone would most know him for his Liberty Medical Commercials and the funny way he pronounced the word "diabetes", which has spawned countless memes.


85 years is a good, long life to live. Even though his body has failed, his memory will live with us forever. God Bless Wilford Brimley.

    Rest in peace, Wilford Brimley, it seems nigh-impossible to find pictures of him as a young man, he already looked old in the 70s
