Bill Huyck

Former Assemblyman Willard Huyck, California's last surviving lawmaker from the 1940s died in November at nearly 102 years old.

To the end, Huyck was kind and generous with his time, answering questions about his time in the legislature and his life since.

When I mentioned that it had been hard to find him because he shares his name with a son who's active in Hollywood, he asked "You've heard of his movies?"

He will be missed.
