Tears shed over Chicago late Monday night as one of its own transitioned, in our opinion, far too soon. From ditch digger to Academy Award nominee, Michael Clarke Duncan epitomized hope realized. Born and raised on Chicago’s South Side, Duncan was often characterized and maybe mischaracterized by his intimidating 6 foot 5 frame and voice registering bass. Such typecasting distracted recognizing his enamoring smile, which exuded an immeasurable joy that resided in that large frame.
Rest in perfect peace Mr. Duncan.
