Garry Marshall's death feels kind of sudden, since he directed a movie that was just released back in April. Around that time I saw him do a live Q&A on Facebook, and had even heard that he and Anne Hathaway were wanting to make another Princess Diaries movie (which I think he mentioned during the Q&A). I heard this morning he'd been recovering from a stroke and had pneumonia.

Sad to hear of the passing of guitarist Scotty Moore.. I met him once, really cool,  unasuming guy.
Seemed totally oblivious to his own legendary status..

"Nowhere special... I always wanted to go there."

R.I.P. Gene Wilder. He was a true comic genius. Young Frankenstein is one of my all-time favorites.

So very sad.  I just saw the news about this on Facebook.  Loved Gene Wilder in Young Frankenstein, Silver Streak and Stir Crazy.

God Bless you, Mr. Wilder.  Rest In Peace.

Arnold Palmer, the Magnetic Face of Golf in the ’60s, Dies at 87

Quote
Arnold Palmer, the champion golfer whose full-bore style of play, dramatic tournament victories and magnetic personality inspired an American golf boom, attracted a following known as Arnie’s Army and made him one of the most popular athletes in the world, has died, a close friend said on Sunday, requesting anonymity to allow the family to make the statement. Palmer was 87.
From 1958 through 1964, Palmer was the charismatic face of professional golf and one of its dominant players. In those seven seasons, he won seven major titles: four Masters, one United States Open and two British Opens. With 62 victories on the PGA Tour, he ranks fifth, behind Sam Snead, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Ben Hogan. He won 93 tournaments worldwide, including the 1954 United States Amateur.

RIP Arnie.

I liked Alan Thicke. He was perfect on growing pains. I've read that he was a great person in real life. R.I.P Mr Thicke.
