    Elvis Presley

    The King died on his throne exactly 28 years ago. Bookmakers have revealed that wagers have all but dried up from fans betting that Elvis Presley is still alive. Over the years bookmakers William Hill have taken thousands of bets that Elvis will be found alive, but in the last year fans have stopped placing bets. Bookmakers have now lengthened the odds of Elvis being found alive from 100/1 to 1000/1. "The biggest odds we have ever given was a Elvis related bet, we offered 14 million to one that Elvis will crash land a UFO into Loch Ness hitting the monster," said bookmaker Rupert Adams. "It is perhaps the end of an era, where even his most ardent fans no longer believe that Elvis could have remained hidden for so long."

She joined the Nation in 1946 and was named Mother of the Nation of Islam in 1986 by Minister Louis Farrakhan, and has an international following of admiration by those in the Nation of Islam.

    Martin Gardner

    Someone I can't find previously mentioned on the DL is the 93-year-old 'godfather of recreational mathematics' (i.e. he likes puzzles), Martin Gardner. I'd never heard of him till reading this article, and his wiki page suggests he's eminent enough for a suitable obituary - check the Escher and Tetris references. The article says he's too frail to attend the G4G conferences held in his name these days (though it also says he's still 'mentally and physically fit'), so he's a possible deadpool pick for someone willing to take a gamble.

    William Frankland

    Born 19 March 1912 (108 years of age on this day I create the topic in his name). A collaborator with Alexander Fleming in the development of penicillin. Frankland taught that increased levels of cleanliness and hygiene in modern life account significantly for the rise in allergies, the so-called Hygiene Hypothesis. He has said that "We don't set off our immune system early on, we are too clean. In the former East Germany for instance, with very poor work and housing conditions, people were less allergic". I recall my own GP in Birmingham (Mary Stone) who met Frankland - telling my mother (when I was very young) to: “Let him play in the dirt it will help build his immune system”. Frankland was instrumental in the creation of the British Association of Allergists in 1948. In 1962 the Association became the British Allergy Society, and Frankland served as president between 1963 and 1966. The society became the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI) in 1973. Frankland is a founder member and president of the International Association of Aerobiology, and president of the UK charity the Anaphylaxis Campaign. Frankland continues to publish; at age 100 he authored "100 years of allergen immunotherapy", and most recently co-authoring, "Flight Lieutenant Peach's observations on Burning Feet Syndrome in Far Eastern Prisoners of War 1942–45" in the 'Quarterly Journal of Medicine' in 2016. A person well worthy of his own topic here on DeathList. Long may he continue to live.

    Billy McNeill

    Former footie player, Lisbon Lion and manager is apparently in a bad way. Seems he might not last the night.

    Kenny Rogers

    https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/lifestyle/country-legend-kenny-rogers-cuts-short-farewell-tour-10105938 Given the announcement that American country and western singer Kenny Rogers has had to cut short his farewell tour due to health challenges .I thought it was high time this big name star of country and western music had his own thread .He certainly deserves one . Yes they are playing down the seriousness of these health challenges but I think it is a timely reminder that its about time he had his own thread .

    Alex Higgins (And Snooker)

    I know that last time there was an Alex Higgins thread it turned into a rant fest. So this is more general question, which I suspect will get very few answers-Aren't there a ton of sick and dying snooker players Joe O'Boye, the Francisco's, etc . Suspect this will prove to be a thread to nothing but.......?

    Roy Hudd

    I firmly believe that this story has been reported on the forum, but can't actually find any posts to that effect. The search gave me plenty of options, none of which I have trawled through. Therefore, if this is old news, please delete away. http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/tm_objec...-name_page.html DWB

    Osama Bin Laden

    I'm surprised Osama bin Laden wasn't on this year's deathlist. While he's proven pretty resilient since getting more than he bargained for post-911, I'd say with a US election in November, there's a good chance the Americans will manage to blow up whatever mountain hole Osama is squirreled away in. And in the end, that's probably good news for him, what with all those virgins waiting for him in the afterlife . . .

    Nicholas Parsons

    Looked in great shape on Pointless today, can't believe he's 89. Better than his partner Rick Wakeman, anyway.

    25. Hosni Mubarak

    Must be a bad week for African quasi dictators with an M, u, a and b in their names, as Hosni Mubarak is apparently ill enough to be raising speculation over who might succeed him. Could be one to bear in mind for next year......

    Sir Patrick Moore

    He will be 81 next march and is in very frail health. He's just published his autobiography in which he reveals that he doesn't expect to live much longer and has organised his wake and prepared a (very witty) post-death taped funeral speech to his friends. He can no longer walk without the aid of two sticks and says his body has started shutting down. A decent bet?

    James Brown

    The Godfather of soul has prostate cancer. He has told doctors 'I don't feel good' and will be going for surgery next week.
  23. Whitney Houston hits bus You're gonna have to try harder than that, Whitney! Ranks alongside the "Prince Charles cuts lip whilst shaving" type of headline!
  24. Joey Russ

    John McCain

    Yeah, so he has an aggressive form of brain cancer, so he's definitely a very good candidate for next year I think. Felt like he needed his own thread, and I try to limit the amount of threads I make, but it's too tempting this time, so here we are...
