Isaiah Edwin Leopold (November 9, 1886 – June 19, 1966), better known as Ed Wynn, was an American actor and comedian noted for his Perfect Fool comedy character, his pioneering radio show of the 1930s, and his later career as a dramatic actor.
Wynn died June 19, 1966 in Beverly Hills, California of throat cancer, aged 79. He is interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, in The Great Mausoleum, Daffodil Corridor, Columbarium of the Dawn, alongside his son Keenan Wynn, his granddaughter Emily Wynn (February 13, 1960 – November 27, 1980), who died from lupus and his older sister Blanche Leopold (May 18, 1880 – December 26, 1973). His bronze grave marker reads "Dear God, Thanks... Ed Wynn". According to his granddaughter Hilda Levine, Walt Disney, who would die just a few months later, served as one of his casket bearers. Red Skelton, who was discovered by Wynn, stated: "His death is the first time he ever made anyone sad."
