Tony the Tiger voice Lee Marshall dies at 64
May 09, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SANTA MONICA — Lee Marshall, one of the actors who supplied the booming voice of Tony the Tiger in commercials, has died. He was 64.

His son, Jason VanBorssum, tells the Los Angeles Times (http://bit.ly/1uH8hbv ) Marshall died of esophageal cancer on April 26 at a Santa Monica hospital.

Marshall began voicing the Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes mascot in 1999, filling in for the original actor, Thurl Ravenscroft.

Marshall got his first full-time radio job at the age of 14 in Phoenix. He had a prematurely deep voice and lied about his age. His career included radio newsman, rock ‘n’ roll disc jockey, sports broadcaster and wrestling ring interviewer.
