He Was Ugly, Strong And Had Dignity
John Wayne, when asked how he wanted to be remembered, replied: "Feo, Fuerte y Formal" - Spanish proverb meaning "He was ugly, strong and had dignity".
Today is the day to remember him - John Wayne passed away exactly 25 years ago at the age of 72.
One of Patsy's favourite movies is The Quiet Man (whose Isle Of Innisfree Patsy recorded and presented to a new generation) with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara (see link below) and John is one of Patsy's favourite actors.
Some folks need to be reminded of this anniversary, but if you ask Patsy if he ever forgot about The Duke, he'd growl "The hell I will..."
