Composer Jule Styne Dies

Writer Jule Styne, whose song "Three Coins in the Fountain" won him an Academy Award in 1954, died Sept. 20, according to an AP article in the Sept. 21 Courier-Journal. Styne was recuperating from open-heart surgery undergone six weeks earlier.

Styne's family emigrated from London to the U.S. when he was six years old. In 1916, some four years later, he became a U.S. citizen.

Styne wrote "People," "Make Someone Happy," the music for the Broadway shows "Funny Girl" and "Gypsy" and several songs in "Peter Pan."

He was a brilliant pianist at age eleven and, although a finger injury changed his career, Jule Style left the world some fabulous music to play and enjoy.

Styne was 88.
