Famous Person Obituary Thread

Pages

Figured I would create a thread for any minor celebrity who passes and doesn't deserve their own thread. In other words, if you don't think the person's passing will merit more than a few posts, put it here. If the person merits a few pages of thoughts, make their own thread.

The Iron Sheik, pro wrestling legend and Hall of Famer, dies at 81

Like every wrestler from my childhood, I am nostalgic for my memories of him and surprised he didn't die years ago.

It's amazing how one person can one day be telling Hulk Hogan to go f*ck himself in all caps on Twitter and be gone the next.

In a good riddence to bad rubbish...

Rest in piss. A truly horrible person that was taken too late.

I'm sure he's looking up at us and smiling.

This should be interesting, to see who gets their own thread and who is memorialized in here haha.

Ted Kazinski is dead, that's a good one. Although I believe I spelled his name wrong .

Yeah CBS this morning did a segment on him. And I was just sitting there in shock. Like do a memoriam for the 3 people he murdered or ones he injured and have since died, not for the Unabomber.

2023 is coming for the pieces of sh*t, apparently. Silvio Berlusconi bites the dust.

I just found out Richard Belzer died... four months ago. Somehow I missed that. He played Detective Munch on Homicide and Law & Order: SVU plus appeared as that character on several other shows including The X-Files and Arrested Development.

I also remember fondly watching him do comedy on many of the endless stand-up shows that used to air in the 90s before he ever got his defining role.

I'm saddened to hear of his loss. Reportedly, his last words were: "f*ck you, motherf*cker!".

I didn't realize this either :(. It sounds like him, though. I wonder if he was directing his last words at Terry? Nah, probably just the universe in general.

Well that is a much sadder story than I knew about her life.

Favorite song -

Sinéad O'Connor - Mandinka

Paul Reubens loses battle with cancer

RIP Peewee. I watched that silly movie a million times as a kid.

:x Bram Moolenar. I've used his work nearly every day for the past 20 years or so, and its hard to exaggerate the impact Bram had on the world of devlopers, sys admins, authors, or anyone else who ever needed to edit some text.

Johnny Hardwick, voice actor for Dale Gribble, was found dead in his home Tuesday. No word yet on how this affects the planned King of the Hill revival.

William Friedkin passing really threw me, The Exorcist is one of my favourite films ever made and his wider canon almost always at least interesting. Think I will double bill The Exorcist and Sorcerer this weekend.

Oh yeah I had no idea the director of the Exorcist was the director of Blue Chips until this week.

I'm more likely to rewatch Blue Chips honestly. Saw the Exorcist once in theaters and no need to ever watch again.

And I have never watched Blue Chips I will need to try it! The Exorcist is incredibly powerful for me I first watched it at 14 years old which probably helps.

Oh it was amazing. I saw it at the 20th or 25th theater rerelease. But it scared me in a way most horror films never have. I just don't need to see it again.

Good idea to make a unified threat for this.

I’m going to hell for laughing at that.

Very sad. I remember when my sister and I would watch her on Days of Our Lives over the summer when we were off from middle school. She played opposite (a pre-Q) John De Lancie, and they got a lot of the more comical and outlandish plots on the show.

R.I.P. Jimmy Buffett

Son of a son of a sailor. 76 seems too young. When I was in college it was a yearly summer event to go to his concerts. His greatest hits album, Songs You Know By Heart, were literally all songs I knew by heart.

As it turns out my wife made us margaritas for the football game last night. I usually drink bourbon. Guess we were celebrating without knowing.

I hope he finds that lost shaker of salt
