    Must be an age thing. I don't know many people from my generation who watch soaps, never mind Emmerdale, which is like a super intensified form of Chinese water torture.

    60s entry updated for the death of DeVito (he wasn't in the 70s lineup).

    Do we have to keep resurrecting this thread every week? She was a boring enough pick as it was.

    Can’t work out if you’re a clever troll or suffer from terminal stupidity.

    The Fringes Of Fame/family Of The Famous

    Did a search and nothing came up, so I assume it wasn't mentioned at the time: Georges Gustave Hollande, father of former French President Francois Hollande, died on 7th April aged 96. Former DDP pick so needs to be added to the List of the Missed --------------------------- Whilst I'm here, anyone know if Zarin Musharraf, mother of former Pakistani PM Pervez Musharraf, is still alive? In 2014, aged 95, she was reported as being seriously ill. Can't find anything subsequent, though she'd be 100/101 if still about? Also a former DDP pick.

    Sylvester Stallone

    To be fair, you're all mocking CoffinLodger but Jackie Stallone is a bigger household name in the UK than Ruth Bader Ginsberg.

    The 100 Club

    Just announced that American canoeist John Lysak (wiki), the world’s oldest living Olympian, died back in January aged 105. The oldest living Olympian is now Uruguayan sailor Felix Sienra (wiki) who is 104. To settle a query from earlier this week, it’s also been confirmed that the oldest living British Olympian is 98 year old sailor David Bowker (wiki), who is a few months older than Edna Child.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2021

    To be fair, it’s reported that she died in her sleep. Considering she was 2 months shy of 99, not exactly unheard of at that age to just slip away, but I can’t see any evidence that she was ill.

    Thanks guys. Updated (can’t quote as on my phone). The 60s has taken a huge thrashing this year.

    Updated with QO obit from The Mirror. Article says she's had years of health problems. Did we miss that? It appears she died on her birthday too – big DDP opp missed there.

    38. Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    That's almost a compliment as far as passing judgement goes with you, Quim.

    As it's Sunday, and with the 2nd COVID-19 wave headed our way, I think we could use some comic relief via the power of Longcat memes:

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    David Cook (wiki), Northern Irish politician who served as Lord Mayor of Belfast (1978–1979) and Member of the Northern Ireland Assembly (1982–1986) dead from COVID-19 at 76. The first notable person to die from the disease in the UK since historian Arthur Keaveney on 23rd June.

    Thanks! Managed to get Chin's full DOB from sourcing him on Clustrmaps in Fort Lauderdale area. Also got the late Winston "Bopee" Bowen's birth date (he was a FB friend of Chin's). Most of the others are on there. Little on their profiles though. Waul spells his name as "Franklyn Michael Waul" on his FB page btw. It's likely the name was interchangeably spelt over the years. Nothing on Devon sadly (he is on FB though and is definitely still in Kingston). There are two people called Lloyd Kerr living in Florida according to Clustrmaps – one 70, the other 73. He could be one of them but I've got nothing else to link sadly. Just one more part of M left. We're 2/3 of the way through all of the 1970s acts!

This appears to be nonsense according to this blog post as people commenting state that he was active from the 1940s and that he was at least in his 40s by the time of the 1970s. NB2: According to comments on the above YouTube link, he's deceased. One says he died in January 2007. He appears to have spent a lot of time in London, so could have been from there. The GRO doesn't turn up any further clues. There is a Raymond Claude Morgan (b. 1931) who died in Kent in the first quarter of 2007. Could this be him?
