I remember he looked really ropey at some event (probably a funeral) and I long-listed him but it was ages ago and I forgot about him.

Comedian should be in inverted commas.  You have to be funny to be classed as a comedian.  Its like saying liked presenter James Corden.  Nobody likes that c**t Corden

Norman Collier's funeral, I think. There were a few of that generation there, with Syd Little being the last survivor I believe.

That looks right, as I had Tom in my DDP team the following year.  I shall accordingly take myself off to the Personal Survivors thread for a spot of editing.

I agree about the inverted commas.   I was originally going to do that but decided not to.

Apparently, DDP and Deathrace pick Jack Arends, the Democratic elector, has just died:

Washington State senator Patty Murray confirms.

I think he lived too long to still be obitable, but we'll see, I guess.

Also, currently, top of my surviving HPDP shop (the top two picks having already carked) HPDP accepts Washington Post and NY Times obits - so I thought the man worth a punt. The next few days will tell on that score.

There may still be hope for a Jack Arends thingummybob as he's gained local coverage: https://www.heraldnet.com/news/jack-arends-the-guy-in-the-play-nice-beret-dies-at-64/

Hmm, not holding my breath - unless the Bidon administration do some belated thing to mark his passing by mentioning him, dedicating something to him etc. He was third on my HPDP line up for a reason - that reason being I thought he'd peg out soon into the administration he helped to bring about.
