Rose Marie (born Rose Marie Mazzetta; 8/15/1923-12/28/2017)~ Show biz legend Rose Marie, who enjoyed success early on as "Baby Rose Marie" and later, as an adult on the iconic tv series The Dick Van Dyke Show, died on December 28th, 2017, of natural causes. Rose Marie was 94 years old.

What a great career she had! A lot of former child stars had tragic lives after their early fame waned, but Rose Marie kept it going for decades. I also remember her appearing on the old Hollywood Squares game show quite a bit. The most surprising appearance (to me, anyway) was her and Joan Collins (of all people!) on an episode of the classic western tv series The Virginian. Never expected to see either of them on a western! R.I.P., Rose Marie...

Dorothy Malone (born Mary Dorothy Maloney; 1/29/1924-1/19/2018)~ Dorothy Malone, an actress who won the best-supporting actress academy award for her performance in Written On The Wind (1956), died on January 19th, 2018, at the age of 93.

When Malone's film career slowed down, she turned to television, notably starring as Constance McKenzie on the tv series Peyton Place from 1964-1968.

Melvin Leon "Mel" Stottlemyre Sr. (11/13/1941-1/13/2019)~ Mel Stottlemyre, a former MLB All-Star pitcher for the New York Yankees, who later became a successful pitching coach for a few teams (including the Yanks), died on January 13th, 2019, of complications from cancer. Stottlemyre was 77 years old.

Mel Stottlemyre started his MLB career with the Yankees, compiling a 9-3 record and 2.06 ERA down the stretch to help the Bombers reach the World Series in 1964. In that fall classic, Stottlemyre faced future Hall of Famer Bob Gibson of the St. Louis Cardinals 3 times, winning one game, losing one and a no-decision in the other, as the Cards won in 7 games.

Unfortunately, for Stottlemyre, the Yankees were about to go into a dark period---they wouldn't return to the World Series until 1976 (an eternity for us Yankee fans!). The great Yankees of the 50's & early 60's had gotten old and most (notably Mickey Mantle & Whitney Ford) were gone by the end of the 1960's. Still, despite being on mostly bad Yankee teams, Stottlemyre had a pretty good career:

He won 20 games three times
He was a 5 - time All-Star
He had 152 (!) complete games
He had 40 shut-outs
His career record was 164-139 with a 2.97 ERA, 1257 strikeouts and a 1.219 WHIP

After his playing career ended after the 1974 season, Stottlemyre would return to baseball as a pitching coach for the New York Mets (1984-1993), Houston Astros (1994-1995), New York Yankees (1996-2005) and Seattle Mariners (2008). He collected 5 World Series rings as a coach (1 with the Mets and 4 with the Yanks). 

With Mel, he just had bad timing in his career. He joined the Yankees just as they began to decline, and was out of baseball just before they started becoming good again. But, he still got those 5 rings as a coach, which ain't too shabby. Reading some of the comments about his death, he seems to have been very well-liked and a great person off and on the field. Doesn't surprise me---he always seemed like one of the good guys in the game. He will be missed at the next Old-Timers Day and beyond... R.I.P., Mel Stottlemyre---a classy Yankee...

Sondra Locke (born Sandra Louise Smith; 5/28/1944-11/3/2018)~ Sondra Locke, an actress/director best known for her movies with Hollywood icon Clint Eastwood, died on November 3rd, 2018, of a cardiac arrest. Locke was 74 years old.

Sondra Locke made an impressive film debut in 1968's The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter, receiving both Academy Award & Golden Globe nominations for best supporting actress. She went on to appear in Willard (1971) and several television series: Rod Serling's Night Gallery, The FBI, Cannon, Barnaby Jones, Kung Fu and Planet Of The Apes. But, the 1976 western The Outlaw Josey Wales was the beginning of a personal and professional partnership with Clint Eastwood. Their films together included The Gauntlet (1977), Every Which Way But Loose (1978), Any Which Way You Can (1980) and Sudden Impact (1983), which was the highest grossing of the "Dirty Harry" films.

However, their relationship began to falter, and they had a nasty split, resulting in Sondra sueing both Eastwood and Warner Bros (it seems Clint supposedly set up a directorial deal for Sondra with Warner Bros, but it was a fake deal that saw all of her projects rejected). Eventually, all parties settled out of court and Sondra later wrote a book entitled "The Good, The Bad And The Very Ugly" (1997), which did not depict a good picture of Eastwood.

Sondra had an almost innocent look to her and her eyes seemed to draw you in. Most people will always remember her films with Eastwood---and rightfully so, but I also remember her co-starring with the lovely Colleen Camp in a low-budget film called "Death Game" aka "The Seducers" (1977). In it, Sondra and Colleen torture a guy (Seymour Cassel) in his own home. Not a classic by any means, but engrossing in a sick way (I'm a fan of B-movies). It was remade in 2015 as "Knock Knock", starring Keanu Reeves in the victim role.

Stewart Robert "Bob" Einstein aka "Super Dave Osborne" (11/20/1942-1/2/2019)~ Bob Einstein, an actor/producer/comedy writer best known for his inept stuntman character "Super Dave Osborne", died on January 2nd, 2019, of complications from leukemia. Einstein was 76 years old.

Einstein originated the Super Dave character on The John Byner Comedy Hour in 1972, then appearing as the character in many televisions shows, notably Late Night With David Letterman and Super Dave, which ran from 1987-1991. 

But, Einstein was not just known for Super Dave---he won two Emmys for his comedy writing and had non-Super Dave roles on Curb Your Enthusiasm and Arrested Development. I never realized that he was Marty Funkhouser on "Curb" until reading his obits. I also didn't know that Albert Brooks was his brother. 

But, at the end of the day, Einstein's legacy will be the Super Dave character, which brought a smile to many faces for decades. RIP, Bob "Super Dave" Einstein...

Peter Alden Magowan (4/5/1942-1/27/2019)~ Peter Magowan, the former managing general partner of the MLB San Francisco Giants franchise, died on January 27th, 2019, at the age of 76.

Peter Magowan, who was born in New York, was a huge fan of the New York Giants baseball team and that continued when he moved out west. Magowan was CEO of the Safeway supermarket chain from 1979-1993, resigning when he and a group of investors purchased the San Francisco Giants.

Under Magowan, the Giants signed star player Barry Bonds and got a beautiful new ballpark in Pacific Bell Park (now Oracle Park). Magowan also brought back former greats like Willie Mays and Willie McCovey to the Giants fold. The revived franchise would go on to win 3 World Series, but only after Magowan had stepped down in 2008. That being said, Magowan is largely responsible for turning the franchise around and keeping the team in San Francisco. RIP, Peter Magowan...

Carol Elaine Channing (1/31/1921-1/15/2019)~ Broadway legend Carol Channing, who entertained theatre fans for decades, died on January 15th, 2019, of natural causes. Channing was 97 years old.

Carol Channing was one of a kind. I am hardly a theatre fan, but someone like Carol Channing had an appeal that was hard to ignore. She had that wonderfully raspy voice, those expressive eyes and most importantly, she had talent. She was nominated for several awards and won quite a few, including 4 Tony Awards. I'll always remember her singing "Diamonds are a girl's best friend"---just great. Carol Channing also had some black in her---her father was half black and half white, so she was a "sista" of a sort. RIP to Carol Channing, a great talent.







Amazingly, Betty White is the only one from this episode of Super Password still living. Lucy, who probably was ill at the time (does not look well) died the year after this aired and host Bert Convy died in 1991 of a brain tumor.

One of the first black managers in baseball passed way, growing up in Baltimore as an Orioles fan I met him 19 years ago, and he was a good man. RIP Frank Robinson

Kristoff St. John (7/15/1966-2/3/2019)~Kristoff St. John, an actor who played the role of Neil Winters for nearly 30 years on the top-rated daytime soap opera The Young And The Restless, was found dead in his home on February 3rd, 2019. St. John was 52 years old.

Damn, this is sad! Kristoff's son Julian (with ex-wife Mia St. John, the female boxer) committed suicide back in 2014 and that hit both Kristoff & Mia hard. Kristoff appeared less often on TYATR over the last few years due to mental health issues which probably were the result of grief over his son's death.

I feel like I've seen Kristoff grow up on TV. He was young Alex Haley in Roots: The Next Generation; Ahmad Abdul Rahim on The Bad News Bears tv series; and had a memorable appearance on The Cosby Show as one of Denise Huxtable's boyfriends. His other credits include Big John, Little John, That's My Mama, Wonder Woman, A Different World, Charlie & Co. and as Adam Marshall on the black featured soap opera, Generations.

Kristoff St. John won two Daytime Emmy Awards and ten NAACP Image Awards over his career. His last scenes on the Young And The Restless aired on February 6th, 2019 and a brief tribute aired on the February 8th episode. It was announced that a special storyline will begin in April to honor both Neil Winters and Kristoff St. John.

RIP, Kristoff St. John---you'll be missed on Y&R...

Frank Robinson (8/31/1935-2/7/2019)~ MLB Hall of Famer Frank Robinson, a trailblazer who was the first African-American manager in MLB history, died on February 7th, 2019, after a long bout with bone cancer. Robinson was 83 years old.

Frank Robinson. He was one of the all-time greats in MLB history. Amazingly, he went to the same Oakland, CA high school as basketball legend Bill Russell and future MLB players Vada Pinson (a teammate of his on the Reds) and Curt Flood, playing on teams with each in their respective sports.

Robinson wasted no time showing his talent once he got to the major leagues. He won the NL Rookie of The Year Award in 1956, as he batted .290, with 38 homers, 83 RBI and 122 runs scored.

In one of the worst trades in MLB history, the Cincinnati Reds traded Robinson to the Baltimore Orioles for pitcher Milt Pappas and two others. Milt Pappas won only two games for the Reds, while Robinson promptly went on to win the AL Triple Crown in 1966 with Baltimore. He batted .316 with 49 HR/122 RBI and 122 runs scored. He also was the AL MVP (first to be MVP in both leagues) and World Series MVP, as the Orioles swept the Los Angeles Dodgers. 

Robinson would later play for the Dodgers, Angels and Indians, the latter being the team that hired him as the first black manager. He was player/manager for the Indians and on opening day in 1975, he homered in his first at-bat!

Robinson would go on to manage the San Francisco Giants, Baltimore Orioles and Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals, compiling a won-loss record of 1065-1176.

In later years, Robinson would serve MLB in various executive roles, notably player discipline.


Frank Robinson's career stats & highlights:

.294 career batting AVG/586 HR/1812 RBI/1829 runs scored/2943 hits/.389 on base pct/.537 slug pct/204 stolen bases/.926 OPS

14 - time All-Star
NL Rookie Of The Year in 1956
NL Gold Glove winner in 1958 (OF)
2-time World Series champ (both with Orioles)
NL MVP in 1961, AL MVP in 1966 (Triple Crown)
World Series MVP in 1966
First Ballot Hall of Fame inductee in 1982
AL Manager of The Year in 1989 (Orioles)
His #20 is retired by the Reds, Orioles and Indians


Frank Robinson was just an outstanding player. He is one of several that I wish that I had seen in their prime. RIP, to an all-time great, Frank Robinson.

Daryl Frank Dragon (8/27/1942-1/2/2019)~Daryl Dragon, better known as the "Captain" in the pop tandem Captain And Tennille, died on January 2nd, 2019, of liver cancer. Dragon was 76 years old.

Dragon, who was the godson of the late Danny Thomas, played keyboards for the Beach Boys back in the late 60's to early 70's. It was during this time that he met Tennille. She, like Dragon, worked as a keyboardist for the Beach Boys, touring with them for a year. After the tour ended, they began to work together, eventually landing a recording contract with A&M Records. 

They had a string of hits in the 70's, but perhaps their most memorable one was "Love Will Keep Us Together", a number 1 hit in 1975, which was also the year they married. Tennille filed for divorce in 2014.








This is my favorite C&T song. Her voice is so sexy...

Louisa Moritz (born Luisa Cira Castro Netto; 9/25/1946-1/4/2019)~Louisa Moritz, a Cuban-born actress who appeared in "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest", among other roles, died on January 4th, 2019, of natural causes. Moritz was 72 years old. Some of her other credits include Chained Heat, Happy Days, Love, American Style, MASH and The Happy Hooker goes to Washington. In more recent times, she was one of Bill Cosby's many accusers.

Richard John "Rick" Down (12/14/1950-1/5/2019)~Rick Down, who served as hitting coach for the MLB teams the NY Yankees, Boston Red Sox, NY Mets, Baltimore Orioles, Los Angeles Angels & LA Dodgers, died on January 5th, 2019, at the age of 68.

Damn, he was a great hitting coach---the Yankees were lucky to have him. He also managed their-then AAA club, the Columbus Clippers for a few years. RIP, Rick Down...

Don Reynolds (5/29/1937-1/9/2019)~Don Reynolds, a former child actor best-remembered for playing the role of "Little Beaver" in the old Red Ryder films, died on January 9th, 2019, at the age of 81. Reynolds became an animal trainer after his early acting career ended, working on a couple of the Lord of The Rings fims and Santa Claus: The Movie. Most recently, he appeared as Doc Brown on the web western series "Sundown", which pays homage to the old westerns of the 50's.

Robert John "Bob" Kuechenberg (10/14/1947-1/12/2019)~Bob Kuechenberg, an NFL offensive guard who was a fixture on the Miami Dolphins offensive line from 1970-1984, died on January 12th, 2019, at the age of 71. Kuechenberg played in 6 Pro Bowls and helped the Dolphins win 2 Super Bowls, including the season in which they famously went 17-0.

Kaye Ballard (born Catherine Gloria Balotta; 11/20/1925-1/21/2019)~ Kaye Ballard, a familiar face on stage, screen and television since the 1940's, died on January 21st, 2019, after a bout with kidney cancer. Ballard was 93 (!).

Ballard was one of a kind. I remember her best from The Mothers-In-Law (w/Eve Arden) and The Doris Day Show, but she did a ton of stage work and had a lot of tv appearances. She played a lot of ethnic characters, usually Italian (she was Italian, BTW), often loud, but usually enjoyable. R.I.P., to the great Kaye Ballard---a funny lady.
