Secret Santa dies at age 58.

By Laura Ziegler


January 13th , 2007 – Secret Santa, a.k.a. Larry Stewart, decided last November to reveal his identity when a tabloid newspaper threatened to "out" him and cancer threatened to take his life. For the last 26 years, he'd given over a million dollars in cash to those he enountered on the street, or at disaster areas around the nation. KCUR's Laura Ziegler has this remembrance.
