More than the roar of the waves at the beach, more than the sounds of baseball and more than the yells of children playing in the street, summer was utterly defined by the iconic jingle of an approaching Mister Softee ice cream truck.

Les Waas, the advertising legend and part-time prankster who wrote the jingle, died earlier this month at the age of 94.
