Celebrity Obituary thread

Laura Knotek

Mar 31, 2012
Many of us are familiar with famous people who have died. I thought it would be nice to start a thread where we could post the obituaries of some of these famous people and have it permanently noted in one location.

Please add links to obituaries of famous people who died today in this thread. They can be in any field: actor/actress, artist, athlete, author, businessman/businesswoman, coach, comedian, director, military leader, musician, politician, religious leader, scientist.

I'll start here.
