Francis J. "Red" Grandy, Stars and Stripes chief photographer for more than three decades, died Wednesday in Ogdensburg, N.Y. He was 96.

Grandy was known for some of the most iconic photos in the world, including one that caught the priceless look on Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's face at the precise moment he learned that Gen. Douglas D. MacArthur had been dismissed as Korean War commander by President Harry Truman. The photo was published all over the world and was named by the Associated Press as best news photo of the year for 1951.

Funeral Services will be held September 13-14 in Canton, NY.
