I never saw him race (well, so far as I'm aware) but his tenacity after the Lauda Air Crash probably saved a lot of lives. Even if he'd done nothing else that would be worthy of the highest praise.

Shame Boeing didn't seem to learn much from it though.

For the sci-fi fans out there who'll recognise him..

Every once in a while there's a perfect match of character and actor, and Paul Darrow and Kerr Avon were one such match. Disproportionately influential in scifi, and still extremely quotable.

I'll have to go back to my original avatar in memoriam, if I can find it.

@algroth I discovered that album last year and it's been in frequent rotation ever since. Found it because I was on a Antonio Jobim trip for a while.

I also thought he'd already passed away until I saw him on a birthday list a few weeks back (he turned 89 on June 27).  RIP.

This time an E-celebrity (whatever that means):

StarCraft Pro, E-sports Caster, Twitch Streamer and all around cool guy Geoff "INcontroL" Robinson passed away after a sudden illness at 33 years of age. RIP.
