He was well known as the Shakespere of Mexico. A poet, musician, actor and author. And very beloved to all the children of all generations.

This past Saturday, Roberto Gomez Bolanos known as "Chespirito" succumbed due to respiratory failure at the age of 85. He will be known as the little orphan boy who lived his whole life in a barrel in the TV series "El Chavo" and was known also as the clumsy hero with a toy hammer - El Chapulin Colorado. His series are still being syndicated through out the world and all latin countries. This is how I grew with when I was a child in Mexico before coming to the states.

He leaves behind 6 children, 12 grandchildren and his beloved 2nd wife, actress and companion of life Florinda Meza.
