The legendary composer of Jurassic Park theme song “It’s a Wonderful Life” is dead at the age of 81, his wife tells The Hollywood Reporter.
The Grammy-nominated musician died on Wednesday, her husband John Williams told the publication.
Williams was born in New York City in 1939 and grew up in San Francisco.
He worked as a musician with The Eagles and The Doors before moving to Hollywood in the 1960s, where he was involved in the films, the New York Times reported.
Williams said his wife, Debbie, died peacefully at her home in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon.
He was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and had been living in a nursing home, the paper said.
Williams worked as an artist for nearly 40 years and won six Grammy Awards for music.
He won four Grammys in 1977 for “The Blue Note,” “A New Hope,” “The Spirit of St. Stephen” and “The Best of Billy Preston.”
He was also nominated for a record contract with Warner Bros.
In 2015, he released a book of songs called The Man Who Loved Me.
He died in 2017 at age 84.
