Age: 57

 

Summary: Los Angeles man who became a familiar figure as he walked the streets dressed as Jesus Christ in a community where he came to be known as WeHo Jesus in a city that embraces the counterculture from the go-go dancers thrusting their hips at gay bars to boozy rock stars playing the Sunset Strip, who was an eccentric saint always open to a selfie and a hug and seemed omnipresent in his own particular way, who marched in the LA Pride Parade, hung out at The Comedy Store, and posed with drag queens at the West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval, who danced in a music video for the bank LMFAO's tune Champagne Showers and inspired Aerosmith's song Street Jesus according to lead singer Steven Tyler.
