    Ferenc Puskas

    Ferenc Puskás,born in 1927 the legendary Hungarian Footballer, is almost certain to die during 2006. His family have just put all his medals and memorobilia up for sale to pay for his continuing care for advanced Alzheimers. He was injured and did not play a part in the infamous "Battle of Berne" during the 1954 World Cup. This did not stop the Brazilians stabbing him with a broken bottle during the post match punch up. A superb all round player - better than Best in my opinion. The national stadium in Hungary is named after him.

    Bulent Ecevit

    Bulent Ecevit Ex-Turkish PM, who had been ill before. Recovered, and until yesterday, was doing well. Not Any Longer I'm not sure he'll make it to 2007 & it may be between him & Suharto for which world leader will die first, but surely worth a consideration, especially as this story has been covered by the BBC.

    Paul Ableman

    Paul Ableman, not exactly a household name and I'm struggling to find an internet link that bring up issues of his health. If anyone else sees one please patch in a link. I have a hunch he and his family will be more bothered about his health than his writing from now on. Should get some broadsheet obit attention when he goes.

    Freddy Fender

    Apparently on the way out: http://www.nbc4.tv/entertainment/9623024/detail.html Don't know if he'd pass the "fame test" - I'd certainly heard of him. If he makes it through the year, a good bet for '07.

    Kevin Smith

    Just wondering if anyone else had heard of Kevin Smith? He played Ares in the tv show Xena. He had been cast in a supporting role in Tears of the Sun, alongside Bruce Willis, and many believed this role would have made him a hollywood star. Unfortunately he died in 2002 after falling from a prop tower on the set of another film. He fell into a coma and died from severe head injuries. This seemed like an appropriate place to mention him seeing as how it's a forum about dead people.

    Ta Mok

    Ta Mok, 80, one of only two surviving leaders of the Khmer Rouge being held in detention, is in a coma. He was hospitalised on June 29th with heart, lung and respiratory problems, but recently his health took a turn for the worst, and his doctors are very pessimistic about his chances for a recovery.

    Glenn Ford

    Gwyllyn Samuel Newton Ford of the Canadian Provence of Quebec, better known to the world as the beloved actor Glenn Ford is scheduled to turn 89 this coming Sunday. Birthday Man Born May 1, 1916 and taking American Citizensip in 1939, he has appeared in several films including such treasured classics as Pocketful Of Miracles with Bette Davis, 3:10 to Yuma, Gilda, Teahouse of The August Moon, Jubal, A Stolen Life. If all goes as planned he will be around next year at the release of his authorized biography: Slow and slower Haven't found any word on his health but no news is often good news although his actual work seems to have dried up since the early 1990's. Maybe his adopted son Clark Kent knows where he is!.

    María Capovilla

    Wikipedia's page for the world's oldest person, Marie Esther de Capovilla reports that she has died today, Aug. 27, 2006, at age 116 and 347 days. Normally I would dismiss it as vandalism, but it has been added in detail to her page, also to the recent deaths page, and on the bottom of the page the world's oldest person succession box has been edited to show her successor. In addition, the person who put this info on the page has a history of creating many articles about longevity and seems to be dedicated to the subject, so surely he can't be just yanking our chain? But no articles whatsoever come up on googleNews or any other website. Strange...

    Susan Cullen-Ward

    Queen Susan Barbra Cullen-Ward (Queen of Albania) born 1941 in Waverly, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. She married King Leka of Albania and had one son also called Leka. She died July 2004, it wasn't very well reported and no1 on here has mentioned her, i have heared of her but didn't know that she had died, has anyone else heard of her? I did find a very small Wiki link on her though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Cullen-Ward

    Alfredo Stroessner

    Bit surprised to see in a search, that he's barely mentioned anywhere, apart from me moaning that he hasn't died yet. Well, it looks like he might just soon: Stroessner in "fragile" condition, in intensive care. Stroessner in "critical condition" This thread may be a relatively short one if he dies soon, but if he somehow comes out of this, then he's a worthy candidate for DL next year. But OOO needs DDP points (especially if Sharon dies soon) & with Stroessner being a right bastard anyway, OOO would be most pleased with Stroessner's passing.

    Arthur Lee

    Terribly sad news in Billboard today. The frontman of psych-proto-punkers Love, Arthur Lee, is apparently suffering from leukemia. http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/articl...t_id=1002313682 Awful shame, seeing as it's only 5 years since the old chap got out of jail, after a very harsh three strikes and you're out judgement. One for next year, perhaps? West coast whimsy's loss is deathlist's gain?

    Billy Preston

    Former humungous afro sporting 70s soul singer and keyboard player, Billy Preston is apparently in a bad way following an infection of the heart early in the year. An alcoholic and cocaine addict, he had a kidney transplant in 2002 following kidney failure. The new kidney subsequently failed and he now relies on dialysis 3 times a week to survive. More info here, this is the latest I could find. Sounds quite promising for 2007 if not before, though not of course for Billy.

    Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi

    According to news reports Al-Zarqawi may be dead. This is probably just a combination of media speculation and wishful thinking on the US forces part. Even if he hasn't yet been killed, surely he can't evade death for much longer. After all he is operating in Iraq unlike Bin Laden who is most likely hiding out in Pakistan's North Western frontier. Being in the midst of the insurgency, his luck must run out soon.

    Larry 'wild Man' Fischer

    Wild Man Fischer isn't doing too well. Was really saddened last night watching the documentary movie, 'Derailroaded' about his life. A paranoid schitzo who's been a legend of outsider music for years, despite averaging well under 1000 record sales a year since 1968. He went into supported living at the end of 2004 but his diet, mental state and general health are more fragile than they should be for a 60 year old.
