    Clarence Williams III passed away from colon cancer at the tender age of 81.

    "Who? you ask?

    Those of us who are familiar with television shows from 1968-1973 might know him as Linc Hayes/Lincoln Hayes in the original The Mod Squad, although he has been in others before and since, including Purple Rain. Here're his filmography and obituary: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0929934/?ref_=tt_cl_t_2#self https://www.rollingstone.com/movies...od-squad-purple-rain-actor-dead-obit-1179280/

    Frank Woodrow Boers Jr. passed away at the tender age of 79 from complications of Lewy body dementia.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Frank Bonner, a rather prolific actor who kinda came to fame as Herb Tarlek in WKRP in Cincinnati although he was in several other gigs before and after. Here are his filmography and obituary: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0094894/?ref_=tt_cl_t_6 https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/frank-bonner-wkrp-cincinnati-saved-182947801.html

    Alex Harvill passed away at the tender age of 28 from injuries sustained from a daredevil motorcycle stunt.

    "Who?" you ask?

    He was a stuntman who had jumped his motorcycle several times in different events, usually somewhat successfully. This last time, while attempting a world record, something went wrong. He is survived by his wife, a five-year-old daughter and a newborn son. Here's his obituary: https://www.yahoo.com/sports/daredevil-alex-harvill-dies-world-record-motorcycle-jump-002726827.html

    I think that I'll purruse a couple of :kitty: sites :(

    Miss Phyllis, not sure if you are aware, but Ned Beatty, probably most famous for his role in the movie "Deliverance," though he had many notable roles over the years, passed away a few days ago.

    Christian Boltanski passed at the age of 76.

    "Who?" you ask?

    Boltanski was a French conceptual artist known for work that explored notions of memory, loss and personal as well as cultural history.

    Born in Paris on 6 September 1944, roughly two weeks after the city had been liberated. His father, of Ukrainian Jewish descent, survived a year and a half there hiding beneath the floorboards of the family’s home, a fact that Boltanksi later said greatly influenced his work.

    Something here and again here

    Phil Valentine succumbed to complications of COVID-19 at the tender age of 61. I won't do my usual "game" here because most of us might've heard of him, especially over the past few months.
