If you’re a Disney fan you probably have heard the oscar winning song “Under The Sea” by Samuel E. Wright or Sebastain the Crab from “The Little Mermaid.”

The actor recently passed but leaves behind a lifetime of smiles and memories.

“On top of his passion for the arts and his love for his family, Sam was most known for walking into a room and simply providing PURE JOY to those he interacted with,” the town of Montgomery, New York wrote on its Facebook page.

Aside from acting, one of his biggest accomplishments was opening the first performing arts school in his town, the Hudson Valley Conservatory.

“The greater Town of Montgomery Community mourns together today. As we say goodbye to a pillar in our community and ask everyone to share a memory and help us celebrate the life of this great man,” a post on the town’s Facebook page said.

Wright will be missed in the community as well as among Disney fans.
