A sad loss. I think I read he has been dealing with dementia for years, so maybe it is a blessing.
He was scheduled for an autograph session at Fan Expo Dallas this weekend. The man was there for his fans till the very end.

When she was younger, Peggy Lipton was one of the most beautiful women in the world (which she passed on to her daughter, Rashida)

Also just dead, long time actor Kip Niven. He was never particularly high profile, other than appearing in Magnum Force (as one of the bad cops) and the cult classic New Year's Evil, but he was on TV constantly throughout the 70s and 80s.

Maybe the biggest loss yet. So young as well. We also lost Tim Conway, who was great on the Carol Bernett show. Amazing dude. Yes at some point he became Dorf, and went fishing, but that was for the kids.

But yeah Grumpy cat died way to young. I actually never thought of him or her, I thought it was a photoshop.

But that cat had spunk. And inspired films that nobody will ever remember. But tiny kids enjoyed Grumpy Cat, just as they enjoyed Dorf. Hopefully Conway gets remembered through his amazing comedy, unlike Grumpy cat who phoned it in most of the time.

Whenever I see this thread pop up I feel sad because I misread it as Celebrity Death Match and I loved that show.
A new series of it is coming out this year.

It's Celebrity Deathmatch BTW, so that's how you can tell the difference. :messenger_winking_tongue:

Besides Minnie Mouse and other Disney characters, she was also the voices of Martin Prince, Üter and Sherri & Terri on The Simpsons.
