Bob McGrath: He Played the Sweater-Clad Music Teacher and Advice-Giver on Sesame Street

From a New York Times obit by Anita Gates headlined “Bob McGrath, Longtime ‘Sesame Street’ Star, Dies at 90”:

Bob McGrath, who played the sweater-clad neighborhood music teacher and general advice-giver on “Sesame Street” for almost half a century, died at his home on Sunday morning.

Mr. McGrath’s daughter Cathlin McGrath said Mr. McGrath died from complications after a stroke. She said that the night before Mr. McGrath passed, his family had decorated his room for Christmas, and sung and danced around him. “We just knew that he wanted to go the way he lived.”
