Disney songwriter Robert Sherman, who penned the well-known and beloved tunes like “It’s A Small World After All” and “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” has passed away at the age of 86.

Throughout his career, Sherman collected a wealth of prestigious awards, including two Academy Awards, a Grammy, and many nominations. In 1976, with his brother Richard Sherman (known together as The Sherman Brothers,) he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The first poignant paragraph of his statement says only that “[Sherman] went peacefully after months of truly valiantly fending off death.”
