Jackie Gleason

Jackie Gleason (February 26, 1916 - June 24, 1987) was a Brooklyn-born comedian famous for brash humor and fast ad-libs who immortalized his Brooklyn neighborhood in The Honeymooners, playing bus driver Ralph Kramden. Ralph, his buddy Ed Norton, and their wives Alice Kramden and Trixie Norton were later transplanted into the stone age as The Flintstones, the entire show being a transparent tribute to The Honeymooners.

Jackie Gleason is interred in the Our Lady Of Mercy Cemetery, Miami Beach, Florida.
