TORRANCE, CA Milton Quon, a Disney animator who worked on Fantasia and Dumbo, has died, according to reports. He was 105.

Quon died June 18 of natural causes at his Torrance, California home, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Quon was "drawing right up until his last days," his son, artist Mike Quon told the news website. In 2005, he was interviewed by the L.A. Times about an upcoming art exhibit at the Chiense American Museum in downtown L.A., and joked about his love for recreating the food he ate.

"I was on a kick there for a while of painting every meal I had," Quon told the Times as he poured through pages of watercolors depicting entrees and salads. "It doesn't matter where I am. In a bank, I'll sketch the people waiting in line with me. On buses, I'd do sketches of the driver."

Quon was born on August 22, 1913, in Los Angeles. He was the eldest of eight children, and his parents were immigrants who came to the United States from China.

Quon started working for Walt Disney Animation Studios in 1939, but he also dabbled in acting and appeared as an extra in films and television shows such as Speed (1994), Sweet Jane (1998) and Chill Factor (1989), among others, according to his IMDb.

As news spread of Quon's death, fans and friends alike took to Twitter.

"Milton Quon was wonderful, brilliant, and talented. Most important, he was a very kind man. He was much beloved," Author Lisa See wrote.

Quon was married to his wife, Peggy for more than 70 years. They had four children and four grandsons, according to the Ministry of Culture, a Los Angeles-based art collective. When asked about the secret to his longevity, Quon would say "A good wife and Chinese food," The Hollywood Reporter said.
