General Celebrity deaths

Recommended Posts

Pulled from the last couple posts of the 2017 one which bled into 2018

 

Since nobody is going to post one for 2018, I will.

 

 

Darlanne Fluegel (To Live and Die in L.A., Once Upon a Time in America, Tough Guys, Battle Beyond the Stars, Running Scared) passed away after a long battle with early onset Alzheimer's.

John Young, the US longest serving astronaut has passed away at age 87: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/obituaries/john-young-moon-walker-and-nasas-longest-serving-astronaut-dies-at-87/2018/01/06/5ef1d15c-f313-11e7-b390-a36dc3fa2842_story.html?utm_term=.7252ebe8f89a

 

Young joined NASA from the US Navy. He started out as a Fire control Officer on a destroyer during the Korean War. Later he went to flight training, became a fighter pilot, and eventually a squadron commander. He retired from the Navy as a Captain and joined the Astronaut Corps in "Group 2" for Project Gemini. He flew as the pilot of Gemini 3, the Commander of Gemini 10, the Command Module Pilot on Apollo 10 and finally he landed on the moon as the commander of Apollo 16. Later he commanded the first Space Shuttle flight and then STS-9 two years later. 

 

God Speed Captain Young. We thank you for your service.

My distinct Cranberries memory: Had them on my walkman on the bus trip over to my first X-Country race my freshman year. Won my Frosh/Soph race. Didn't win another one that year...but then again, I never played my No Need to Argue cassette again.

RIP Bradford Dillman - https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/bradford-dillman-dead-actor-compulsion-way-we-were-was-87-1075818

 

He was in a lot of movies (like Compulsion, with Dean Stockwell, or The Iceman Cometh) and Broadway (O'Neil's Long Journey into Night) but also was a perennial guest star in TV shows through the 60s and 70s (including a meglomaniac in a Man from UNCLE two-parter and as a victim in a memorable Columbo).

 

And RIP Peter Wyngarde, star of TV's Jason King (and appeared on a number of ITV shows as a guest star) and the movie Burn, Witch! Burn!

This is shocking, and truly sad. Johann Johannsson was one of the most interesting and promising score composers at the present time. This is a huge loss, and at a relatively young age too. R.I.P.

Am I only one who finds this topic kinda morbid?

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

Eh, it's like an obituary page. And it's always guaranteed to be a rolling thread as people die and what not.

One forum I go to (about film) has an entire folder of threads dedicated to memorializing those who've passed away.
