Martin Milner has passed away.

'Adam-12' and 'Route 66' Star Martin Milner Dies

Here's the New York Times obit:

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/08/arts/television/martin-milner-dies-at-83-actor-made-his-name-on-route-66.html



Quote
Mr. Milner had no illusions about his place in the Hollywood firmament and seemed not to be particularly concerned about it.

“The really big stars have a drive that made them into superstars,” he said in an interview with The Toronto Star in 1994. “They can’t turn it off when they have that success. I certainly was not driven by a great dedication that made me succeed or else.”

He wondered aloud if that made him a bum. Then he added, “It’s terrible, but it’s true.”

His wife survives him. They were married for 58 years, ... how rare is that in Hollywood, also?

Yogi Berra has died at the age of 90.  Yogi Berra was not only one of the greatest players ever but he was one of the greatest human beings ever.  A true legend, icon, whatever word you want to use about him.  He was truly one of a kind.  Everybody loved him and nobody ever said a bad word about him.  That is really rare.  Usually theres always somebody out there who isnt going to like you.  But not with Yogi.  Everybody liked him!  Even Red Sox fans liked him!  According to Tim Kirkjan Ted Williams told him a long time ago that Yogi Berra was the man he feared the most.  Not Dimaggio and not Mantle.  That says a lot right there.  Baseball will never be the same without him!  Yogi will be missed by all!

So sad to hear of this news as I was driving home from Maine today.

Maureen O’Hara, Fiery Star of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Dies at 95

I loved her in Big Jake and Only The Lonely.  Sad to say I haven't seen The Quiet Man or McLintock!

Truly a talented, iconic actress.  God bless you Ms. O'Hara. May you rest in peace.

Who wants to be the first to name the movie Maureen O'Hara and Clint were in together?

Very cool seeing Clint and Liam on stage together with Ms. O'Hara.  They were in The Dead Pool Together and since then Mr. Neeson has done very well for himself, especially with Schindler's List and more lately, becoming a very good action movie star.

Bruce Hyde, Actor in Two Early 'Star Trek' Episodes, Dies at 74


Bruce Hyde played Lt. O'Reilly in The Naked Time and The Conscience Of The King, first season Star Trek episodes.  It's too bad his character didn't last.

 " Kurt Masur Dies at 88; Conductor Transformed New York Philharmonic "

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/12/20/arts/music/kurt-masur-new-york-philharmonic-conductor-dies.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=second-column-region&region=top-news&WT.nav=top-news

 
Quote
Kurt Masur, the music director emeritus of the New York Philharmonic, who was credited with transforming the orchestra from a sullen, lackluster ensemble into one of luminous renown, died on Saturday in Greenwich, Conn. He was 88.

The death, from complications of Parkinson’s disease, was announced by the Philharmonic, which said it would dedicate its Saturday night performance of Handel’s “Messiah” to Mr. Masur’s memory.

 

 Rest in peace, Maestro
