    Gian Franco CorsI Zeffirelli passed away at the tender age of 96.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Franco Zeffirelli, the director of several epic films like the classic Romeo and Juliette from 1968. They all were grand spectacles iirc.

    Here's his filmography: https://m.imdb.com/name/nm0001874/?ref_=m_nv_sr_1

    Both Gloria Vanderbilt passed away at the tender age of 95 and Mohamed Morsi passed away at the tenderage of 67.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Gloria Vanderbilt was famous as a designer and media star as is her son, Anderson Cooper, while Mohamed Morsi was considered a tad infamous in recent Egyptian history for being deposed by the Egyptian military.

    Here's more on Gloria Vanderbilt: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gloria_Vanderbilt.

    Here's more about Morsi: https://www.yahoo.com/news/egypt-tv-says-ousted-president-161154009.html

    Ross Perot, Rip Torn

    Wondering if we had elected Ross we wouldn't have made the same mistake again with Trump...

    And RIP Rip.

    Hugo Santillan passed away from a brain clot at the tender age of 23, just days after Maxim Dadashev, who passed away at the tender age of 28.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Both men were boxers, Santillan dying just five days after a split-decision in a super featherweight bout in Argentina where he passed out during the announcement. He never woke up from his coma

    Dadashev passed from traumatic head injuries and brain swelling sustained in an IBF junior welterweight match that his trainer actually stopped, conceding the match.

    Here are both men's obituaries: https://www.yahoo.com/sports/boxer-...ys-after-maxim-dadashevs-death-155313294.html https://sports.yahoo.com/russian-boxer-maxim-dadashev-dies-days-after-fight-161659637.html

    Listening to Dadashev's trainer pleading with the young man to let him stop the fight is heartbreaking imho. :(

    Russi Taylor passed away at the tender age of 75.

    "Who?" you ask?

    You might know her better as Minnie Mouse or Martin Prince (she was the "voice" of both, along with several others.)

    Her filmography is here: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0853122/?ref_=tt_cl_t11

    Toni Morrison passed away after a short illness at the tender age of 88.

    "Who?" you ask?

    She was a rather prolific author of African-American literature, winning a Nobel Prize for Literature. Here's her obituary: https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/toni-morrison-nobel-prize-winner-133802109.html?.tsrc=bell-brknews

    Also passing was Bjorg Lambrecht at the tender age of 22 after a tragic crash.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Bjorg Lambrecht was a professional cyclist. He was riding the third leg of the Tour de Pologne when he had a fatal "meeting" with a concrete culvert. Here's the article about his last race: https://sports.yahoo.com/cyclist-bj...-de-pologne-204617503.html?.tsrc=bell-brknews

    I heard that he might've committed suicide, but that's just from one source.

    How he wasn’t kept under intensive 24/7 observation is beyond me. If there was ever someone accused of a crime who wouldn’t want to be around to have a court case spell out the details, it would be him.

    From what I understand, he was taken off "suicide watch" not long before he hung himself. That's the time that a suicidal person (usually) succeeds in killing themselves.
