SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn says actor-director Harold Ramis made the world better with “the generous way he shared his talent.”

Ramis died Monday at age 69. The Chicago native is best known for movies such as “National Lampoon’s Animal House,” ”Caddyshack,” ”Groundhog Day,” and “Ghostbusters.”

Quinn said in a statement Monday that people often smile when thinking of the themes of Ramis‘ movies - college, golf, vacations, boot camp, ghosts and Groundhog Day.

The Democratic governor says he is offering his condolences with the people of Illinois to Ramis‘ wife, Erica, and children Violet, Julian and Daniel.
