COLUMBUS, Ohio (FOXNEWS) — John Glenn, arguably Ohio’s most accomplished
and decorated civilian, has died.

The Cambridge native served in more than100 combat missions over the Pacific
as a Navy fighter pilot during his service in World War II and the Korean War.

Glenn was then recruited to the newly formed NASA in 1958, where he became
the first American to orbit the Earth on February 20, 1962. He remained a part
of the space program until he retired as a Colonel in 1965.

PITTSBURGH (AP) –  The Pittsburgh-area McDonald’s franchisee who created

signature burger with two all-beef patties, "special sauce," lettuce, cheese,
pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun. He also created the Egg McMuffin
breakfast sandwich in 1970.

During the actual filming of "Fun in Acapulco", as Presley remained in Los
Angeles a Presley double was hired to dovetail his long shot scenes with
the rest of the crew while location filming was taking place. The movie
featured the Top 10 Billboard hit "Bossa Nova Baby" and reached #1 on
the national weekly box office charts a week after the assassination of
President John F. Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. The film would be Presley’s
last release before the arrival of Beatlemania and was the top-grossing
movie musical of 1963.

Clifford Burton Barrows  (April 6, 1923 – November 15, 2016)

Cliff Barrows, who provided the soundtrack for Billy Graham’s global crusades
for decades and remained a close friend to the Charlotte-born evangelist,
died Tuesday at Carolinas HealthCare System-Pineville after a brief illness.

Barrows, who lived in Marvin in Union County, had traveled the world with
Graham since the earliest crusades in 1947, in Charlotte and across the
country. The two men met in Asheville in 1945 and soon formed a team
that became the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. He served in
multiple roles, as song leader, choir director and emcee for the Billy
Graham Crusades.
