Only thing anyone in that family has got on target recently.

 

Well he does play for the toffees rather than the glorious reds so I suppose it is only to be expected.....

There has been some activity on the James Bond thread, after the passing of Diana Rigg & Michael Lonsdale & I was curious to see what became of Britt Ekland. 

 

She looks good for a nearly 78 years old, but her seven years old grandson suffers from ALD, a brain disorder that causes sight loss, inability to walk & early death, usually before the age of ten. :(

Basically Edward Woodward had to shag her to save his life, yet he failed.

Jackie Stallone mother of Sylvester Stallone has passed away aged 98.

 

A name increasingly  mentioned on these forums with some even suggesting her for next years deathlist. Alas it wasn't to be.

Yes, I've been a huge advocate for her inclusion on the DL.  It's a shame it couldn't be implemented. :(

I seem to have dropped her from all my teams this year having included her in several including my shadow list for several years.

I can't remember my rationale  but suspect I felt she looked like she'd reach 100.

Did a search and nothing came up, so I assume it wasn't mentioned at the time:

Georges Gustave Hollande, father of former French President Francois Hollande, died on 7th April aged 96.

Former DDP pick so needs to be added to the List of the Missed
---------------------------

Whilst I'm here, anyone know if Zarin Musharraf, mother of former Pakistani PM Pervez Musharraf, is still alive?

In 2014, aged 95, she was reported as being seriously ill. Can't find anything subsequent, though she'd be 100/101 if still about?

Also a former DDP pick.

Reminds me of when Finnish minister and public servant Raimo Sailas died at age 74 this year and turned out his mother was/is still alive and over 100. I can't even imagine what it's like to outlive your own child

The only other parent of a person on the deathlist at the moment is Shane McGowan's father. Maurice McGowan is probably over 90 already, or atleast near it

Country Singer-wife Criscilla Anderson stops chemo treatment and gives herself into the hands of some god, probably Baal.

DDP pick but unpicked by quite a few of the usual suspects, including me.

Criscilla Anderson's fight is now part of a Netflix show:

Her tumor markers went down in April and she says she's going to be around to see her children grow up. Ami Brown syndrome?

A very  unusual  one here.

Lyon Tyler , the grandson of John Tyler  former american president ,President  Tyler has died aged 95.

 

The first link is an obituary  notice, the second an interview with him in 2012 when he was in his eighties. 

How can the grandson of someone who was born in 1790 , more than 200 years ago still be alive? Well as the second link explains  his grandfather had his father aged 75 and his father also fathered him when he was of pensionable age.

Worth mentioning that Harrison Ruffin Tyler, who is 92 next month, is still alive. Also a grandchild of John Tyler.

Been watching through a lot of the Louis Theroux documentaries on Netflix recently. Last night watched Keith Harris and Orville, which was shot around 2001.

Both Keith's parents were in it and were quite sprightly for their age. His father Norman Ernest Harris (b. 1912) was also a ventriloquist. He died in 2005.

His mother Lilian (known as "Lila") Harris (b. 1917) is still with us, aged 103.

Cheshire Live coverage of her 100th birthday in 2017.

Just for future reference, he did end up getting a Mail obit. Might want to pick the other one while we can then...
