    I didn't realize he was *only* 82, probably because I was familiar with him as Daddy Warbucks and figured he was a lot older than he actually was at the time.

    Legendary Washington rodeo cowboy, Deb Copenhaver, age 95

    http://www.spokesman.com/stories/201...yond-his-heyd/

    After a couple of years riding saddle broncs in regional arenas, starting in Keller, Washington, he hit the big time in 1948. Two years later, he was a star. Where did he win? Just about everywhere worth noting: New York’s Madison Square Garden; the Calgary Stampede; Denver; Pendleton, Oregon; Salinas, California; Fort Worth and Dallas; and even the Silver State Stampede near Bing Crosby’s big spread near Elko, Nevada.

Munk, a world-renowned oceanographer who helped ensure the safety and success of Allied beach landings during World War II by devising ways to forecast the waves, and who fired what became known as the underwater “sound heard around the world” in search of greater understanding of climate change, died Feb. 8 at his home in the San Diego community of La Jolla. He was 101.

    Golden Globe-winning actress Katherine Helmond, a frequent scene-stealer on shows such as "Who's the Boss?" and "Soap," has died, her talent agency APA told CNN Friday. She was 89.

    "She was the love of my life. We spent 57 beautiful, wonderful, loving years together, which I will treasure forever," her husband, David Christian, said in a statement. "I've been with Katherine since I was 19 years old. The night she died, I saw that the moon was exactly half-full, just as I am now... half of what I've been my entire adult life."
    Helmond died Saturday of complications from Alzheimer's in her Los Angeles residence, according to Manfred Westphal, chief marketing and communications officer for APA.

    King Kong Bundy, a professional wrestler who was known for his ring battles with Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan in the 1980s, died March 4 in Glassboro, N.J. He was 63.

    The death was announced by promoter and longtime friend David Herro. The cause of death and other details were not disclosed.

    Mr. Bundy, whose real name was Christopher Pallies, began wrestling in the early 1980s. After early professional appearances as a rustic, rope-belted figure dubbed Big Daddy Bundy, he redefined his character, shaved his head and became known as King Kong Bundy.

    The mountainous 6-foot-4 wrestler weighed about 460 pounds during his prime. His ring personality was loud and obnoxious, although other wrestlers considered Mr. Bundy one of the kindest and most generous members of their brotherhood.

    Ted Lindsay, the Hockey Hall of Famer who provided muscle and meanness on the Detroit Red Wings’ mighty “Production Line” of the 1950s and helped pioneer the first NHL players union, died March 4 at his home in Oakland Township, Mich. He was 93.

    His death was confirmed by his son-in-law Lew LaPaugh, president of the Ted Lindsay Foundation, which raises money for autism research. He did not give a cause.

    Known as “Terrible Ted,” Mr. Lindsay was one of the game’s best left wings, an 11-time all-star who played on four Stanley Cup winners. Mr. Lindsay, Sid Abel and Gordie Howe formed an offensive juggernaut of a line that helped make Detroit one of the first of the National Hockey League’s great post-World War II dynasties.

    One of my all time favorites. RIP, pard.

    From his home-town paper:

    https://www.star-telegram.com/sports...227286574.html

    During an interview at his home in September last year, he said: “I haven’t done anything other than type and know people. I spent a lifetime, six or seven decades, not only typing for a living but cultivating sources.”

    Although he covered every sport, Jenkins was known for his relationship and affinity for golf. His Twitter account was a must read during the sport’s majors. He never lost his biting yet subtle wit.

    Alan García, the former president of Peru whose first administration in the 1980s was plagued by corruption, guerrilla violence and four-digit inflation, and who made a remarkable political comeback to win a second term in 2006 but faced bribery allegations after leaving office, died April 17 in Lima. He was 69.

    His death was announced by Andina, Peru’s state-run news agency. Mr. García shot himself early Wednesday as police officers arrived at his home in Lima to arrest him in connection with a corruption investigation, officials said.
