TV commercial casting director Merrill Jonas died Thursday at the Motion Picture Home in Woodland Hills, Calif. after a long illness. She was 96.

Starting out as an actress, Jonas rose to head of the casting department at Ogilvy and Mather in New York, where she led a six-person team that cast more than 100 commercials. The celebrity talent included Patricia Neal, Karl Malden, Anna-Maria Alberghetti, Arthur Ashe, Sonny & Cher and Ravi Shankar.

Frank J. Kelley, who served as attorney general of Michigan for 38 years (and thus gained the nickname "eternal general"), has died at 96: https://www.detroitnews.com/story/obituaries/2021/03/06/frank-kelley-michigans-eternal-general-dies-96/4303222001/

 

(I am a longtime lurker here who has finally made an account. Should I crosspost the above into the Political Frailty thread? My assumption is that this is supposed to be a catch-all thread with the rest discussed in the breakway threads if they fit, but I don't want to spam the same notice across multiple threads EDIT: Have now seen this was already shared in the law & order thread, nvm)

You can never have to many QOs :) Somehow, I missed your post. I could make up some bullshit excuse about the search engine not flagging it, but its basic incompetence; mea culpa.

Don't worry, @Alex

Some people don't understand that this thread is supposed to be inclusive, for all of the year's deaths.

What is the point in reading it twice?

 

If you want a complete list of Deaths in 2021, there’s a Wiki page for that Toast.

I don't suppose there's a table tennis thread as there were only ever two well-known (British) table tennis players after Fred Perry; now there's only one, as Chester Barnes has died aged 74. Regarded as a maverick in TT circles - he drove a pink Jag registration number FU 2 - he took to the holiday-camp circuit on retirement, taking on holidaymakers with a frying-pan.

 

He was also horse trainer Martin Pipe's assistant, for many years, until Pipe's retirement, then stayed working for Pipe's son David.

Claude Callegari, formerly of AFTV and probably the man who started the "angry football fan shouting on YouTube after the match" trend, has died.
