It's Already Been 50 Years Since Mr.Eternity Died?!

I wrote about the ideas of "now" and "eternity" in my last post -
Minimalising Mental-clutter?
and realized after writing that post that the man responsible for writing the word "eternity" all around Sydney last century has been dead for 50 years this year.
Mr Eternity: Arthur Stace
"Arthur Malcolm Stace (9 February 1885 – 30 July 1967), known as Mr Eternity, was an Australian soldier.
He gained fame as a reformed alcoholic who converted to Christianity and spread his message by writing the word "Eternity" in copperplate writing with chalk on footpaths in and around Sydney, from Martin Place to Parramatta for about 35 years, from 1932 to 1967"
Being a bit of a Beatles fan I couldn't help noticing that Arthur Stace passed away a few months after 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' was released, but a few months before 'Magical Mystery Tour' was released.
Bit of a coincidence? 
Or nothing really when we are talking in terms of forever?-)
It's all a bit of a mystery I think.
At least Paul's not dead, right?-)
I saw the new Pixar movie 'Coco' recently and noticed that the main dead character Ernesto that the movie centres around often has his name written in a very similar style to Arthur Stace's Eternity script.
