Co creator of The Simpsons dies aged 59
Emmy winner and co-creator of The Simpsons Sam Simon passed away March 8, 2015.
He once said The Simpsons gave him more freedom, â€œYou can draw animals and sets but the animated characters also have freedom. The Simpsons sometimes do things that real people would not doâ€.
After he came to know of his illness in February 2013, Simon turned to philanthropy and donated his vast fortune, a cool $100 million, to charity.
Sam Simon passed away aged 59, as nine-time Emmy winner and contributed in the movie industry as producer, creator, writer and director since 1979.
