You'd think that getting to 84 would be enough without having to go through the covid crap.

You’d think someone would attach the NYTimes LINK if posting the death notice here and/or referring to the obit.

Bob Miller, who played for four teams (Cardinals, Mets, Dodgers & Twins) over a dozen years between 1957 and 1969 and who later coached at his alma mater in Detroit for 36 years, has died. He was 94.  He is the second notable pro athlete named Bob Miller to have died in the last two months, following the death of the hockey playing Bob Miller at the end of September.

Also notable in that along with Terry Duerod (basketball) he was the second major name from the University of Detroit Titans to die in the past week or so.

Damn, I guess former LA Kings hockey announcer Bob Miller better watch the fuck out!  He was forced to retire a few years ago due to heart issues and turned 82 in October.

Points should only be awarded to those who can pronounce that surname.  It’s common in Cajun country, otherwise I wouldn’t have a clue.

Missed this one when it happened.  Billy DeMars, who had a short major league career with the Philadelphia A's & St. Louis Browns in the late 40s/early 50s, but a much more prolific one as a coach with the Philadelphia Phillies (1969-81), Montreal Expos (1982-84) and Cincinnati Reds (1985-87), died December 10th. He was 95.

Legendary former Dodgers announcer Vin Scully's wife of 47 years, Sandi, has passed away from ALS at the age of 76.  Scully has endured a lot of tragedy in his life, as his first wife, Joan, died of a drug overdose in 1972.  He then wed Sandi a year later.  To see your wife of 47 years go before you do, particularly when she's 17 years younger than you are, I'm sure it has to be devastating.  His eldest son, Michael, died in 1994 in a helicopter crash at just 33 years of age.  As Scully is 93, you have to wonder if this could lead to a quick deterioration.  I certainly hope not.  

 

I suppose this could have gone into the ALS thread, too.
