Wayne Allwine, 1947-2009
The voice acting industry has lost one of the greats today; Wayne Allwine passed away at the age of 62, from complications related to diabetes. You might not know the name, but you surely know the voice: he has been the voice of Mickey Mouse since 1977. Surviving him is his wife, Russi Taylor, the voice of Minnie Mouse. That's right, the voices of Mickey and Minnie were married in real life. Strange but true.
