June 07, 1917 – December 25, 1995

Dino Paul Crocetti, better known as Dean Martin, was an American singer, actor and television host. Martin’s earliest success saw him team up in comedian, Jerry Lewis. The duo enjoyed a decade of stage acts, radio programs and television appearances as well as 17 films.  After a popular solo career, he found his iconic place in entertainment history as a member, along with fellow crooners, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr.,  of the fabled Rat Pack.  Known for his laid-back1 onstage persona  and comedic prowess, Martin enjoyed a lengthy career despite ever-changing musical landscapes and personal tragedies.

On Christmas Day 1995, the king of cool would toast his last. After a more than two-year battle against lung cancer, Dino died in his home in Beverly Hills of acute respiratory failure and emphysema.
