Rest in Peace: Geoffrey Holder

Geoffrey Holder was born in 1930 in Trinidad and Tobago. A notable dancer, singer and performer, his deep voice made him stand out from the crowd. He used his deep voice to capture his highest profile job- as a spokesman for 7-Up.

Even today, years after the last ad aired on television, Mr. Holder is still remembered for them. As well as for his roles in the films Annie, Live & Let Die and Boomerang. Geoffrey Holder passed away at the age of 84, leaving behind his wife of almost 60 years and a son.
