Although he died in April, the UK Guardian newspaper has just published this obituary:

Wikipedia says As a youth, Tepper's family moved to Brooklyn, where Tepper met his future musical collaborator, Roy C. Bennett. Their first hit was "Red Roses for a Blue Lady" (1948), recorded by Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians. Over the next 22 years, the songwriting team wrote for Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney, Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra, Sarah Vaughan, Dean Martin, and many more.

Gee, I didn't realize that Red Roses for a Blue Lady is as old as I am. I know it from the 1965 Wayne Newton recording, and had no idea it was older. Other Tepper songs that are familiar to me are: Naughty Lady of Shady Lane, Nuttin' for Christmas, and Suzy Snowflake - I have to admit that all are songs I find to be a bit annoying...

But may he rest in peace.

It is odd to imagine Travellin Light as an Elvis song rather than the hit it was for Cliff Richard.
