    Michael Gambon

    Feels like we've been losing a lot of Harry Potter actors as of late. It's actually a bit sad, HP was something I associate with my school days (it had gotten super popular at that time) and now we've reached that time where the older actors have began to die off.

    Ideas and possibilities for 2024

    He's still generally pretty active and involved in the motorsport world and appeared on a podcast interview with Justin Bell (ex racer and Derek Bell's son) last year. Seemed very well and was very sharp through the interview. Also posts quite often on his Twitter and the account is fully operated by him, so I'm assuming there's nothing major going on. Anyway I don't think he needs to be considered in 2024. In fact I can't think of any Formula 1 drivers right now at the moment that come off as immediate DL potential, the ones who were in the last 1-2 years have already passed away (Brooks, McAlpine, Reutemann, Jabouille, Tambay etc.).

    Death By Numbers 2023

    My mid season replacement Zoleka Mandela is dead, but there hasn't been any news outside the South African press. Waiting on a proper QO here. EDIT: BBC Obit

    David McCallum

    This is a sad one for me. David was a great actor indeed. Loved his role on NCIS, but I'll also remember some of his voice acting roles in some of the shows I watched as a teenager. He also narrated the World War II documentary D-Day at Pointe-du-Hoc in 2019 (which I haven't actually watched surprisingly, will do so today). RIP.

    Death By Numbers 2023

    Giorgio Napolitano is a hit for several of us.

    Internet Celebrities

    Mark "Markiplier" Fischbach has an intriguing health history, plus an apparent tendency for freak accidents (How the fuck did he get struck in the eye with a pickle, for one?). Most notably had a tumor removal from his adrenal gland before he even started Youtube, additionally his father died of cancer as well.

    Russell Brand

    Doesn't surprise me if it's true, always thought he was a prick. Even more so after his involvement with the far right.

    The Chequered Flag

    I'll be honest I didn't know about Basil van Rooyen asides from brief mentions on DL, but I just checked out his Wikipedia page and I definitely have a greater admiration for your friend. It looks like he did pretty much everything one could do in the automotive world be it racing, designing, building, engineering and even inventing a couple of automotive products. Not too many people I can think off the top of my head who have done all of that in the motorsports or automotive industry so hats off to your friend. R.I.P.

    I will make a temporary profile pic of the immortal Jimmy Carter for now, since I'll be changing my username soon anyways.

    World War II Veterans

    Any idea how many Free French Forces and Vichy French veterans are remaining? Can somebody compile a list?

    That makes two Apollo 8 Astronauts outliving their wives. Frank Borman's wife died a couple years ago after a long Alzheimer's disease battle.

    3. Bob Barker

    Interestingly majority of the tributes and statements seem to be from his Happy Gilmore co-stars, not from any of the Price is Right folks with the exception of his successor Drew Carey. No statement or words from any of the Barker's beauties as of now. I understand most of them weren't on good terms with Bob, but I would have thought at least one of them would give a statement or mention about his death.

    Since my sub Bert I. Gordon is dead, I'll substitute in Pearl Harbor Survivor Ira "Ike" Schab instead.

    Crazy Eight Dead Pool Mk.II

    My pick Crescencia Garcia is dead. Obit.

    World War II Veterans

    And Crescencia Garcia is dead. Surprisingly zero mentions in the news considering past coverage, not even a brief note.
