Raconteur and publisher Hugh Hefner has passed away at the age of 91. With Playboy, he took the low-fi concept of a "nudie magazine" and turned it into an industry. 

For what will you remember him the most?

Anyone know of any photos of the Hollywood sign on IMDb I could use to illustrate this? He paid to restore the Y in the sign.
