Merv Griffin (1925)

Originally a singer and nightclub performer, Griffin first achieved wider fame in the early 1950s with the hit song I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts. He then shifted his focus to television, hosting The Merv Griffin Show from 1965 to 1986. He created the popular game shows Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! and wrote the latter's famous theme song. Later, he invested in casinos, resorts, and hotels. What humorous epitaph was inscribed on his gravestone? More...

You don't really even know there's a cemetery hidden amongst all of the big buildings until you're practically inside Westwood Village Memorial Park. A vast majority of the tombs were set into walls and the ones that weren't were pretty standardized. Which is why it was really apparent when someone went the extra mile to stand out by showing a little humor on their tombstones.

Merv Griffin's had my husband in stitches (sorry about the reflection):
