He was great!
I saw an interview with him years and years ago on 20/20 or some similar TV show. He seemed like a funny and interesting guy.
I don't think I'd ever noticed that it was always him doing the voiceovers before that, but after I saw him I would always listen for his voice at the movie theater. I'll miss that
