Johnny Grant, the popular honorary mayor of Hollywood – whose era spanned from his friend Walt Disney to Halle Berry (pictured with Grant here) – died of natural causes on Wednesday. He was 84, and among his legacies is the HOLLYWOOD sign. In 2006, Angie Dickinson told the Associated Press, “You’ll never find a more generous soul in your life.”
