    Another year down, another year's worth of notable deaths. Here's hoping this thread will be smaller than its predecessor.

    2020 absolutely suck! We lost too many people, way too soon from Kobe, to Boseman, to all the country superstars, to Eddie van Halen, praying death slows it roll in 2021

    I know you're laughing now, but this is very serious. I wish you had let us know. You're family around here! And we're here for you. Don't forget that, okay? :)

    How are you doing now?

    Paul Westphal, a beloved figure in the basketball world and a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, has died at 70. He had disclosed some months ago that he had glioblastoma, which those of us in the brain tumor community refer to as the kiss of death.

    RIP, Paul, and thanks for your contributions to basketball.

    I just saw this on the news: actor Tanya Roberts has died. Apparently, she collapsed while hiking with her dog on Christmas Eve, was immediately put on a ventilator, and has now died. This was not COVID-related. She was only 65...

    UPDATE: For the first time I can recall, we've announced a death that hasn't happened yet! I'm happy to report that Roberts is still alive, but apparently in very bad condition. I haven't found out yet why her publicist(?) announced her death when it actually hadn't happened yet. :thinking:

    There have been several occasions in the past where a news agency or a publicist has updated their boilerplate and accidentally published instead of just saving the update. I think Abe Vigoda died like three times before it actually took...

    Well, the Tanya Roberts story is getting more confusing by the minute. KTLA just showed a clip of her partner doing a live interview last night, during which he was called and told she was still alive. Then, later, he announced that she did die, but last night, not the day before. The original confusion--and I'll say straight up that this makes no sense to me--was caused by her partner telling her publicist that she had died, then the publicist made that public...and then... I'm sorry, my brain hurts...

    Oh that was something very different! It may even pre-date common use of the Internet. It was a rumor that got started and then grew a life of its own. Over the years, he 'died' about a million times!

    Hopefully, the final word on Tanya Roberts: she died yesterday, "the cause of death was a urinary tract infection, which spread to Roberts‘ kidney, gallbladder, liver and finally her bloodstream." In other words, she died from what I almost died from, sepsis. When I first heard that she had collapsed, deja vu as I remembered my collapse.

    Here's the latest from the LA Times.

    Condolences to her loved ones, especially her longtime partner, whose last few days must have been awful.

    It's with a heavy heart that I say beloved Dodgers manager, Tommy Lasorda, has died at 93. We were buoyed just days ago when he was released from the hospital, after more than a month, including time in the ICU (for non-COVID reasons). But last night, a heart attack, and failed resuscitation attempts, claimed him.

    It's hard to put into words how much Tommy meant to Los Angeles. He bled Dodger blue and had always stated he wanted to die a Dodger. You did, Tommy, you did.

    Tommy Lassorda was synonymous with baseball and the Dodgers. You will be missed Coach. RIP Sir.

    Indeed, @olbriar. He was with the Dodgers longer than you and i have been alive, 71 years. He was the Dodgers. I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around this because he had just been released, and was doing well. We held our collective breath when news first broke that he was in the ICU, then he improved, kept getting better, got well enough to go home.

    Once again, reality rears its ugly head...anyone, at any time, can die.

    Phil Spector has died of natural causes at 81. His “wall of sound” influenced the careers of many bands and singers. Of course that was long before he was convicted of second-degree murder. :(

    RIP, Phil, and thanks for the positive things you did for music.

    Good article here from Variety: https://apple.news/AYO7ZYM4gSHuP9bgKiV6iRQ
