Grave Sites – Frank Sinatra – Grave Site
Sinatra began to show signs of dementia in his last years and after a heart attack in February 1997, he made no further public appearances. After suffering another heart attack, he died at 10:50 pm on May 14, 1998 at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, with his wife Barbara by his side. He was 82 years old.
The next night the lights on the Las Vegas Strip were dimmed for 10 minutes in his honor.
President Bill Clinton, as an amateur saxophonist and musician, led the world’s tributes to Sinatra, saying that after meeting and getting to know the singer as President, he had “come to appreciate on a personal level what millions of people had appreciated from afar.”
Elton John stated that Sinatra, “was simply the best – no one else even comes close.”
Grave Sites – Frank Sinatra – Rat Pack
The Rat Pack was a group of actors originally centered on Humphrey Bogart.
In the mid-1960s it was the name used by the press and the general public to refer to a later variation of the group, after Bogart’s death, that called itself “the summit” or “the clan,” featuring Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford, and finally, Joey Bishop, who appeared together on stage and in films in the early-1960s, including the movie Ocean’s 11.
Sinatra, Martin and Davis were regarded as the group’s lead members.
