Composer Richard M. Sherman, known for writing songs for Disney classics like “Mary Poppins,” has passed away at the age of 95 in Beverly Hills.

Sherman collaborated with his late brother Robert, and together they won two Oscars in 1965 for their work on “Mary Poppins.”

Among their most famous compositions are “Trust in Me” from “The Jungle Book” and “Truly Scrumptious” from “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.”

Disney announced his death, stating Sherman died “due to age-related illness” at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

The Sherman brothers were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2005 and received the US National Medal of the Arts in 2008.

Their work also included “The Aristocats,” “Bedknobs and Broomsticks,” and the “Winnie the Pooh” shorts.

They were portrayed in the 2013 film “Saving Mr. Banks,” which depicted the making of “Mary Poppins.” Actors Jason Schwartzman and B. J. Novak played the brothers, showcasing their process of composing the film’s hit songs.

“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” became a pop hit, entering the Billboard Hot 100 in 1965. The Shermans won Oscars for Best Music Score and Best Original Song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee.”

Throughout his 65-year career, Sherman was part of Walt Disney’s “inner circle of creative talents,” according to Disney.

Born in New York City on June 12, 1928, Sherman won three Grammy awards and received 24 gold and platinum albums. His contributions to the arts also earned him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The Sherman brothers wrote over 150 songs for Disney, including the score for the 1961 film “Parent Trap,” which was revived in 1998 starring Lindsay Lohan.

In his later years, Sherman continued producing musical scores. In 2023, he co-wrote a new song with composer Fabrizio Mancinelli for Disney Legend Andreas Deja’s animated short film “Mushka.”

Sherman is survived by his wife Elizabeth, their children, and grandchildren.

His funeral will be held on May 31 in California.
