Notable Deaths - 2019

Postby John Q. Public » Wed Jan 02, 2019 7:44 pm

Kick off the new year with a trio of them.

"Super Dave" Osborne - 76
Daryl Dragon - The "Captain of "The Captain and Tennille" - 76
"Mean Gene" Okerlund - 76

If you were born in 1942 don't even leave the house this year.

Juan Valdez. :(

Image

The coffee farmer who for more than three decades embodied the heart and soul of Colombian coffee with his portrayal of Juan Valdez, Carlos Sánchez Jaramillo of Medellín, has died at age 83.

Coffee leaders throughout Colombia have been lamenting last week’s passing of Sánchez, who has been widely characterized as a humble and passionate man who embraced the spirit of Colombian coffee through his decades of service to Colombia’s National Federation of Coffee Growers (FNC).

Probably not too well known around here, but Don Johnson, long time basketball coach at Cypress College, passed away at age 88. When he retired he was the all-time winningest coach in California JC basketball history, with a record of 588-259.

A real gentleman. Took time to talk to everyone.

They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

The lives of the characters in Big Wednesday almost ended up being prophetic for the real lives of those three.

Tom Hatten, longtime - and I do mean long time - host of "Popeye and Friends" and the "KTLA Family Film Festival."

Reminds me of the LA of my childhood as it does of the man himself. RIP Tom.

Rolling Stone magazine is reporting that Dick Dale has passed away. A moment of silence for one the greatest guitar intros ever.

Senator Birch Bayh, 91.

Bayh authored the 25th and 26th Amendments. Imagine that--we're so ossified now that even the thought of one amendment seems impossible. He wrote two.

He also authored Title IX, arguably one of the most impactful laws of the last half century.

You might not know him but he was a neighbor of mine, a great coach and an outstanding human being.

Legenary Mt. San Antonio College baseball coach Art Mazmanian, who won an NCAA title as a player at USC and coached many years in the minor leagues and also was part of the coaching staff for Team USA during the 1984 Olympics, died on Friday in San Dimas.

He was 91.

~snip~

In 1949, Mazmanian was drafted by the New York Yankees and signed for $4,000. That same year, the Yankees signed Mickey Mantle for $1,100.

Not 2019.

Eight years ago today, the US learned of the death of Osama bin Laden at the hand of US Navy SEALS.

Thanks Obama.
