The Guy on Brawny Paper Towels Dies

Sad news from Salinas:

Danny Cunningham, a key figure on what may have been the greatest high school basketball team in the history of Monterey County, died of injuries suffered in a car accident Monday in the gold country town of Ione, where he worked as a tree surgeon.

Cunningham, whose rugged looks caught the attention of Hollywood, appeared in a few Budweiser commercials and was on the cover of Brawny paper towels for several years.

His dying words were: "Mr. Clean lives on."
