    Ron Liebman passed away at the tender age of 82 from pneumonia.

    Marie Fredriksson succumbed to brain cancer at the tender age of 61.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Anyone familiar with the Swedish band, Roxette, from the late 1980s through the 1990s (if not longer) would recognize Marie (she was the one that sang lead for the song, It Must Have Been Love {it was used in the movie, Pretty Woman}.)

    Here's her obituary: https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/roxette-singer-marie-fredriksson-dead-at-61-150112171.html

    Philip McKeon also passed away after a long illness at the tender age of 55.

    "Who?" you ask?

    He was a child actor (like his younger sister, Nancy) portraying the character Tommy Hyatt in the sitcom, Alice at age twelve, quitting television in the 1990s to go into radio.

    Here's his obituary and filmography: https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment...ctress-nancy-mckeon-dies-at-55-013516235.html https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0571639/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

    Jesús Melgoza passed away last Saturday (Caturday) after suffering a combination of a GI bleed and acute MI at the tender age of 61.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Chuy Bravo, the sidekick in Chelsea Lately and other productions. Here's his filmography: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1934037/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0 (I believe that it also contains a link to his obituary, but don't quote me here.)

    Allee Willis passed away at the tender age of 72.

    "Who?" you ask?

    You might be familiar with some of her compositions and collaborations.

    Just to drop a few titles that she worked on: September and Boogie Wonderland by Earth, Wind & Fire, the theme from Friends, Neutron Dance by the Pointer Sisters, You're the Best from The Karate Kid, Lead Me On by Patti LaBelle, as well as the music for The Color Purple and many others.

    Here's her obituary and filmography: https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment...HLA2iRq39QuaEmAY-828cBT7NcjzuSujJgJpBrzA3z7Qr https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0932267/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0

    Lee Mendelson passed away at the tender age of 86.

    "Who?" you ask?

    You might be familiar with some children's cartoons that he produced, like pretty much all of the Peanuts cartoons (yes, Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy, Woodstock, Franklin, Sally, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, etc.) owe their "lives" to this man. He was involved in "the business" from 1963 through to 2015.

    Here's his filmography and obituary: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0578882/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_0 https://www.yahoo.com/news/video/le...UvkeB-Lzz_aBMOOPj4hjkJsPwL_SPJhbCblpTs927o6AR

    Neil Ellwood Peart passed away last week Tuesday, succumbing to glioblastoma at the tender age of 67.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Anyone who is a fan of the Canadian band Rush would be familiar with the man behind the drum kit as well as several of their hits. Here's his Wikipedia entry (including his obituary): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neil_Peart

    At least he was performing when he passed (heck, he was in the middle of his set when he died, still on stage.)

    Can you imagine the greeting?

    "Who's a very naughty boy now, eh?"

    James Charles Lehrer passed away at the tender age of 85.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Jim Lehrer, co-founder of PBS NewsHour along with Robert MacNeil, passed away in his sleep. He formally started PBS NewsHour back in 1975 during the (in)famous Watergate hearings (ironic, eh?)

    Anyway, here's his obituary: https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/jim-lehrer-dead-pbs-newshour-181723177.html

    It always looked like he had one foot in the grave in the Barney Miller show in the 80s.
