Notable deaths of 2013

The Los Angeles Times has a list of the deaths of well-known people in 2013. Some of them I had heard about and some were of people I did not know at all. But some were of people whose reports of their passing somehow slipped by me and whose deaths I would have noted if I had been aware.

    Some people I’d heard of and some people I had no idea existed. Some people whose passing I regret and others I’m glad to see gone. Memento mori

    117 clicks to get to the end of the list? Ugh, no thanks.

    @2: It’s only about 7 or 8 clicks; a bunch of pics at once, and cursor over to see the name.

    Thanks Rob!

    So ol’ Harold Camping died without seeing the Apocalypse. I’m gonna miss his hilarious billboards around the Bay Area.

    A clear majority I’d never heard of! No mention of Iain (M.) Banks, 59, the “notable death” I was most sorry about.

    The Boston Globe has a similar gallery each year. Here’s the one for 2013:

    Many of the big names are common to both lists, of course, but the differences can be interesting. They aren’t all due to local interest (i.e. Bostonians vs. Angelinos).

    I didn’t realize that J. J. Cale had died. He made both lists.
