Larry Verne, R. I. P.

VVN Music: Passings: Larry Verne (1936 - 2013): It is amazing that an artist ["Please Mr. Custer"] who hit the top of the charts in the United States could fade so much from the scene that his passing can go unnoticed for almost a month. 

While there is no confirmation from the family, it has been reported that Larry Verne died on October 8 in Sylmar, CA at the age of 77 (other reports put him at 79). He had been suffering from Alzheimer's Disease and had suffered three strokes but the cause of death is reported as heart failure.

But the song was a novelty single.

Some things will outlive all of us. Please Mr. Custer is one of them.
