These are definitely my last ones - time to let someone else contribute to this thread again. ;)

 

 

 

Barry Jones - born 1932 - quiz champion and political figure.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barry_Jones_(...ian_politician)

 

 

Phillip Adams - born 1939 - commentator and wannabe atheist

 

 

 

Tim Bowden - born 1937 - national radio and television reporter and researcher:

 

http://www.abc.net.au/talkingheads/txt/s1698496.htm

 

 

*********************************

These two are specific to radio in Tasmania and are VERY well-known down there:

 

 

 

Ric Patterson - born late 1940s? - grossly overweight radio announcer:

 

http://www.abc.net.au/tasmania/stories/s1242382.htm

 

 

 

Richard Moore - another fat, unfunny, banal breakfast radio "comedian" from HO-FM in Hobart:

 

http://www.7hofm.com.au/on-air/richard-moore.html

 

Given VERY unhealthy lifestyle, I doubt he will last long either... Apparently, one of his children died a few years ago, which always takes a few years off the life of a parent and another child had a messy divorce only about a year after marrying someone. Richard Moore's wife, Sylvia Moore, is not a particularly pleasant woman either, by all accounts.

 

*********************************

 

Peter Sculthorpe - born 1929 - famous Australian classical composer.

 

Graeme Bell - born 1914 - renowned jazz musician.

 

Don Burrows - born 1928 - renowned jazz musician.

 

Wendy Whiteley - born 1941 - wife of painter Brett Whiteley. Has lost her husband and daughter. Lived very bohemian lifestyle.

 

 

That's all from me, since I have hogged the last dozen posts on this thread! Time to hand over to someone else. :unsure: The biggest problem will be guessing how many of these suggestions would qualify for UK obits. I doubt if any of the AFL footballers or radio types would but I don't know if some of these people like the jazz musicians, Bell and Burrows, could just scrape in. Obviously, major political and cultural figures should get a tick.

 

 

Anyway, that is all for me, my morbid friends.

 

PS - My prediction is Farrah to go within a fortnight and Swayze won't see Christmas.

:P;)

 

No, just jotting them down as they came to mind, then looking them up to see if they were born before 1940 or thereabouts or had any serious health/lifestyle issues.

 

 

Don't forget, you have multiple threads to spread out and discuss all your English and American possibilities, so I thought to list all of the good potential Aussie candidates within two pages of one thread is a modest achievement!

 

 

Anyway, I definitely can't think of any more obvious potential candidates now! Be interesting to see which one dies first. My money would be on Gough Whitlam or Derryn Hinch - Dame Elizabeth Murdoch seems far too bright for a centenarian to be dropping any time soon.

 

 

Maybe someone could consolidate all of these into a single list and start crossing them out as they drop? I should probably have done that to start with, instead of making a mess with post after post as new ones sprang to mind. :unsure:

 

 

Anyway, that is hopefully a good start for you with some ideas and possibilities. One or two of the more internationally famous ones could go on the main deathlist for 2010 if you see the potential of them.

 

 

By the way, I was way too conservative in my last post, when I said "Swayze will be gone by Christmas." I'll be slightly more bold and say that he will be gone by the first week in August. As for Farrah: Only days?

 

 

Cheers. I'll resume my life as a silent lurker now.

Thanks for invitation to register but I think I will go back to being a lurker. I've been reading the posts here for years without contributing - the morbid sense of humour you share really appeals to me! Even Banshees has a certain.... charm... even if I have to stand on my head whilst reading his/her posts.

 

 

Anyway, it is fun to contribute some potential Aussies for you, as I have been thinking about the likes of Gough and other local celebrities for a while, wondering which would be the first to drop. It is all on the record now!

 

I'll leave someone else with the dirty work of sorting the Aussies out into one organised list! Cross 'em off as they drop. ;)

Alan Jones 1941. Radio loudmouth/rugby coach. (Health problems.)

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Gloria's going anywhere anytime soon.

 

 

Yes, it seems like he will still be around for a while.

 

Derryn Hinch is still the number one in "radio death sweepstakes" now that Stan Zemanek is gone.

 

 

Here is the first, official Aussie "celebrity" to die since I compiled the list:

 

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/04/06/2535943.htm

 

Unfortunately, I have never heard of him (don't follow rugby at all.)

 

 

Here are some more(!) contenders...

 

 

THOSE WHO HAVE HAD THEIR ALLOTTED THREE SCORES YEARS AND TEN:

 

Margaret Holmes 1910. Anti-war activist. Australian national hero. (Approaching the century.)

Ken Rosewall 1934. Tennis champion.

Ron Barassi 1936. AFL footballer.

Peter Carnley 1937. Ex-Head Bishop of Anglican Church in Australia. Liberal Church reformer.

Lorraine Crapp 1938. Swimmer.

Murray Rose 1939. Swimmer.

 

***************************

 

YOUNG(ER) GUNS:

Bill Hunter 1940. Actor and cantankerous old git.

Jack Thompson 1940. Actor and cantankerous old git.

Ivan Milat 1944. Serial killer (has recently taken to self-mutilation, such as cutting off his finger with a plastic knife.)

Kim Beazley 1948. Ex-politician. (Obesity.)

Lionel Rose 1948. Boxer, country singer and token Aborigine for this list. (Alcoholism/stroke.)

Dean Capobianco 1970. Sprinter. (Steroid abuse.)

Mary Donaldson 1972. Crown Princess of Denmark. (Grace! Diana! Mary?)

Mark Webber 1976. Formula 1 driver.

Matt Shirvington 1978. Sprinter. (Alleged steroid abuse.)

Nick D'Arcy 1987. Drunken brawler and sometimes champion swimmer. (One barroom fight too many?)

 

 

Of that lot, my money is on Milat killing himself. After the death of convicted stockbroker Rene Rivkin last year, I will never trust gaols to maintain a vigilant "suicide watch" again.

Sorted by year of birth, then alphabetically by surname!

 

 

99% of 'em have Wiki pages - of the usual dubious quality. I have to leave some work for the rest of you! Hardest one to find (of those that actually exist) was Vivean Gray (Mrs Mangel). I was typing "Vivian Gray" and kept finding many references to some hot young Mexican chick, instead, with only a few websites talking about the old girl. I thought people had simply forgotten her. Finally detected that her name had hte alternative spelling... :unsure:

 

 

Question for an expert: How long does someone with liver cancer normally last? Derryn Hinch publicly announced his ailment in August 2007. He stated that it was inoperable, as it was near his heart. Why isn't he dead yet? I didn't think you'd last for over 18 months with that condition.

 

 

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derryn_Hinch

 

Cheers!

To answer my own question about Hinch, I actually got off my backside and actually followed one of the links from the rubbish Wiki page. Here is some better info:

 

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,22186335-2,00.html

 

 

 

"My condition at the moment is manageable long term as far as I know."

 

"There's a growth on my liver. It's a cancerous growth. It's the size of a 5c piece," the new teetotaller said.

 

"I don't know if it's benign or malignant. It's just sitting there, and as long as it sits there I'm all right.

 

 

HOWEVER:

 

For the rest of his life, Hinch faces a timetable of hospital visits and CAT scans every five or six weeks

 

AND:

 

"I think my immune system is s..t at the moment. Anything that's going around I can get it.

 

"I asked what I can do if my immune system is down and they said eat well, exercise, nothing much you can do."

 

***************

 

So presumably

 

1. His growth is benign and just sitting there at the moment;

2. His immune system is a little better

 

Otherwise, would you say that he would be dead by now??? :unsure:

Are you Iain? And did you move to Austrailia?

 

 

To answer your questions:

 

1. No. I have been called many things in my life, but "Ian" isn't one of them! ;)

2. I have always lived in Australia.

 

 

A few more leads:

 

 

Brian Harradine 1935. Politician; once held balance of power in the Senate. Suffered a series of minor strokes a few years ago.

 

Bill Collins 1934. "Mr Movies", film buff. Getting a bit old and doddery.

 

Judith Durham 1943, (born Judith Cock) member of sickly-sweet 1960s folk band, The Seekers (who outsold the Beatles at one stage). Suffered a very bad car accident some years ago, then her husband died of motor neurone disease and then she picked up a stalker who has an obsession with sending her doormats through the mail, for unknown reasons. :blink:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Judith_Durham

 

It was her former personal assistant who was stalking her, so perhaps butter-wouldn't-melt-in-her-mouth Judith was treating her like a doormat! :P

 

Here is Judith's equally sickly-sweet official page:

Other Australians you could add to the list of potentials:

Sir Marcus Loane, former Archbishop of Sydney, aged about 96

Greg Page, Wiggle with health issues

Doug Anthony, former Deputy PM

Lady Sonia McMahon, had a recent tumble

Brian Burke, former WA Premier (or am I just hopeful putting him on this list)

Kel Nagle, golfer in late 80s

How's Rowena Wallace these days? Every couple of years she seems to have a bout of bad health.

 

Another for you is Patsy King (Erica Davidson in Prisoner Cell Block H) - apparently born in 1929 so getting on a bit. Despite my sister having her on her DDP team I'm not sure she'll get a UK obit to be honest. We'll see in time I suppose.

 

And speaking of former Prisoner actresses, is Mary Ward still alive? She played Mum in PCBH and Dee Morrell in Sons And Daughters. She trained as an actress before WW2 so must be pushing 90 now.

 

Divinyls singer Christina Amphlett is worth watching out for too; has battled alcoholism and is suffering from MS.

Coincidentally I was thinking about Mary Ward myself the other day. There doesn't seem to be a date of death for her, but she doesn't seem to have worked for eight years either, so it could go either way.

Thanks for all of those suggestions, people!

 

 

Yes, I was thinking of Mundine but added Lionel Rose instead. Mundine is definitely an "asshat."

 

 

Didn't know Amphlett had MS... Result of "touching herself" too often? I thought that only caused blindness and hairy palms... :sicktherm:

 

 

I also had no idea that any of Mawson expedition team were still alive. That is quite amazing. Obviously, the good clean air and a bit of bracing cold down in the Antarctic is good for longevity!

 

 

Walking through shops just now saw surfer Mark Occhilupo on the cover of some magazine. Apparently he is recovering from serious drug addiction.

 

 

Philip Newell, former Anglican Bishop of Hobart, is another who is starting to get on a bit. His son, also an Anglican priest and prominent university professopr, recently committed suicide (he had suffered from chronic disablities all of his life and was wheelchair-bound.)

 

 

Sarah Douglass was only born in 1957, according to her wiki page... Any reason why she may drop?

 

 

Cheers.
