  • RIP...

    Not every celebrity death is notable enough to merit its own thread, so I thought I'd start a thread for the rest. Please feel free to add any notable deaths when they happen.

    Former Partridge Family star David Cassidy passed away at the age of 67 this past weekend. Cassidy announced about a year ago that he had been diagnosed with dementia, but his death was from organ failure.

    Jim Nabors of Gomer Pyle fame died last night at the age of 87. Cause of death hasn't been announced, but he'd been dealing with age-related health issues the past few years.

    Both were huge stars during my early years. RIP to both of them.

    Good thread.

    Robert Guillaume. "Seems Like Old Times" was always one of those Saturday/Sunday afternoon movies that was on a local station. I grew to appreciate that movie. He was obviously in other stuff, but that movie always makes me laugh.

      RIP from this Hoosier to one of the greatest honorary Hoosiers of all.

      Hopefully Jim Cornelison will carry the torch for another 30+ years!

        I didn't realize Guillaume had passed until you mentioned it. He always seemed a low-key, genuine sorta guy who thought of himself as a working actor instead of a big star.

          Keith Jackson, the voice of college football for my generation, died last night at the age of 89. Whoa nelly and thanks for so many wonderful Saturday afternoons.

            Fast Eddie Clarke of Motorhead passed earlier this week.
            All of the primary members are now gone. While Lemmy was part of the true originals, Eddie and Philthy came on early and became the real threesome. Good stuff. They don't make'em like they used too.

              Definitely in my top 10 announcers of all time. He was one of the "Granddaddy's"

                  Loved him in "She's the One," which by the way, I've always felt was an underrated movie.

                    I love "Frasier" and I've probably watched every episode at least five times. I've watched the finale episodes at least ten times. To me, "Goodnight Seattle" is the second-best finale of any show I've watched.

                    I have to believe the emotion that John Mahoney showed when he says "thank you, Frasier" was absolutely real. Couldn't find an actual clip, but the promo showed that scene.

                    Gets me every time.

                      He had done a lot of smaller parts in TV and the movies before landing in such a big hit. Frasier was a perfect fit for Cheers before getting spun off.

                          Temptations, one of my all time favorite groups. They helped make Motown.

                              Correct. Edwards was a very talented guy who was a lot easier to deal with than Ruffin, who had some chemical and ego issues... and by some I mean a whole flippin' trainload of chemical and ego issues.
