Curly Howard, RIP

Everyone in SSG knows the Convalescent Home across the street from Potrero Heights, but did you know that "Curly" Howard of the Three Stooges ended his days there?

Back in the 50s, it was called "Baldy View Sanitorium", and Curly had been moved there by Moe after his illnesses made it too difficult for the nursing homes he was cared at previously.

A comedic genius, shy, and easily swayed, he was a lifelong dog lover.

After his passing, he was laid to rest at the Home of Peace Cemetery in East LA, near the corner of Whittier and Eastern.
