Lisa Seagram (born Ruth Browser; 7/7/1936-2/1/2019) ~ Lisa Seagram, a lovely actress who graced many tv shows with her appearance in the 1960's, died on February 1st, 2019, of complications from dementia. Seagram was 82 years old.

Man, was she lovely... Her credits include The Beverly Hillbillies, Batman, Family Affair, Honey West, Burke's Law, Bewitched, Gunsmoke and Perry Mason, among so many others.

Jan-Michael Vincent (7/15/1945-2/10/2019) ~ Jan-Michael Vincent, an actor best remembered for his role as Stringfellow Hawke on the 80's tv series Airwolf, died on February 10th, 2019, of a heart attack. Vincent was 73 years old.

Jan-Michael Vincent was seemingly "the next big thing", but drugs and alcohol halted his progress, preventing superstardom. After Airwolf finished it's 3 year run, Vincent was mostly related to low-budget movies. He also had a number of traffic accidents and health issues, most notably, the amputation of his lower right leg (see 2nd to last pic above). Just a sad story---hopefully, he's at peace now...

Caroline Lee Radziwill (born Caroline Lee Bouvier; 3/3/1933-2/15/2019)~ Lee Radziwill, the equally stylish sister of the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, died on February 15th, 2019, at the age of 85.

Like a lot of these famous sister combos (Joan & Jackie Collins, Joan Fontaine & Olivia de Havilland come to mind), Lee & Jackie seemed to have had an up and down relationship throughout their lives, with Jackie's marriage to Aristotle Onassis being a major turning point (Lee was involved with Onassis before Jackie and Jackie didn't inform Lee of her intent to marry Onassis). But, in their earlier years, while still competitive, they did a lot of travelling together and spent time with each other's families, so I guess it wasn't all bad. Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland on the other hand...

Katherine Marie Helmond (7/5/1929-2/23/2019) ~ Katherine Helmond, an actress best remembered for her role of Jessica Tate on the aptly-titled 70's soap opera spoof, Soap, died on February 23rd, 2019, of complications from Alzheimer's disease. Helmond was 89 years old.

She was funny as hell as Jessica Tate---loved that show! I think it would have been interesting if she had gotten together with Benson---they had a close relationship on the show. 

With her passing, the Tates (Helmond and Robert Mandan's Chester), the Campbells (Cathryn Damon's Mary & Richard Mulligan's Burt) and Benson (played by Robert Guillaume) are now all deceased.

Katherine Helmond's other credits include Who's The Boss, Coach, Everybody Loves Raymond and the Cars movies as the voice of Lizzie.

Margaret Myrtle "Mitzi" Hoag (9/25/1932-2/26/2019) ~ Mitzi Hoag, a veteran actress who appeared on tv shows such as Here Come The Brides, The Facts Of Life, Love American Style, Bonanza and many others, died on February 26th, 2019, at the age of 86.

I remember her best as the shy school teacher Essie on Here Come The Brides, a very underrated show, IMO. She played Natalie's mom on The Facts Of Life. She co-starred with Paul Sorvino in the short-lived We'll Get By (1975), which was created by Alan Alda.

Nathaniel Taylor (3/31/1938-2/27/2019)~ Nathaniel Taylor, an actor best-known for playing the role of Rollo Lawson on the tv series Sanford & Son, died on February 27th, 2019, at the age of 80.

I thought he was great as Rollo---one of my favorites on the show. He also played Rollo on the Sanford & Son spin-offs Grady and Sanford. I also remember him on an episode of What's Happening that dealt with the gang betting on football. I think Nathaniel played Rerun's kin or something.

Andre George Previn (born Andreas Ludwig Priwin; 4/6/1929-2/28/2019) ~ Andre Previn, a German-born pianist/composer/conductor who won 10 Grammy awards and 4 Oscars for his work, died on February 28th, 2019, at the age of 89.
 He served as conductor or music director for a number of prestigious orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra.

Previn, who was married 5 times, was famously married to actress Mia Farrow from 1970-1979. The couple adopted a number of Asian children, one of whom was Soon-Yi Previn, who would later marry her stepfather Woody Allen after Allen's marriage to Mia Farrow ended.

Howell, who was a 7-time All-Star, won the Norris Trophy (awarded to the league's top defenceman) in 1967, and he holds the NY Rangers team record for most games played with 1160.

Hugh Ramapolo Masekela (4/4/1939-1/23/2018) ~ Hugh Masekela, legendary South African trumpeter who had the number 1 hit "Grazing In The Grass" (1968), died on January 23rd, 2018, of prostate cancer. Masekela was 78 years old.

I don't know much about his other work, but "Grazing In The Grass" is one of my all-time favorite instrumentals. I had a cousin who loved it as well and every time I hear it, I think of her. Sadly, she passed away in 2017, so now when it hear it, I'm both happy and sad all at once...

Addison Morton "Mort" Walker (9/2/1923-1/27/2018) ~ Legendary cartoonist Mort Walker, who created the comic strips Beetle Bailey, Hi And Lois and Boner's Ark, died on January 27th, 2018, of complications from pneumonia. Walker was 94 years old.

I didn't read Hi And Lois much (wasn't always carried in the local papers), but I loved Beetle Bailey and Boner's Ark. Beetle Bailey even had a cartoon, which I recently re-discovered on Amazon Prime. I always wondered about that "Addison" written on the bottom of some strips---turns out that was his actual first name, not Mort.

Way too young to die---RIP, Kevin Towers...

Oscar Charles Gamble (12/20/1949-1/31/2018) ~ Oscar Gamble, a former MLB player from 1969-1985 who played for several teams, most notably, the New York Yankees, died on January 31st, 2018, of ameloblastic carcinoma. Gamble was 68 years old.

Gamble had two stints with the Yankees: 1976 and 1979-1984. Both times he helped the team reach the World Series. Gamble wasn't a great hitter, but man could he hit. That lefty bat was deadly with that short porch in right at old Yankee Stadium. Despite his prowess as a slugger, he walked more times than he struck out (610 vs 546) ---something that's pretty rare amongst today's sluggers. And you can't forget the 'fro!

Oscar Gamble's career statistics: .265 AVG/200 HR/666 RBI

Nanette Fabray (born Ruby Bernadette Nanette Theresa Fabares; 10/27/1920-2/22/2018) ~ Nanette Fabray, an actress/dancer/singer who appeared on stage, screen and television since the 1920's, died on February 22nd, 2018, of natural causes. Fabray was 97 years old.

Most people will remember her as grandma Romano on the original One Day At A Time, but she also appeared as Mary Richards' mom on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and as Christine Armstrong's (played by her real-life niece, Shelley Fabares) mother on Coach.

Fabray won a Tony Award in 1949 for "Love Life" and 3 Emmy Awards for her work on the Sid Caesar program Caesar's Hour.

David Allen Ogden Stiers (10/31/1942-3/3/2018) ~ David Ogden Stiers, an actor best known for his portrayal of Major Charles Emerson Winchester III on the classic tv series M*A*S*H, died on March 3rd, 2018, of bladder cancer. Stiers was 75 years old.

Stiers was an excellent addition to the MASH cast---his Winchester was a much more well-rounded character than Larry Linville's Frank Burns, who he essentially replaced on the show. Linville did a great job with Frank, but he was more of a caricature than a character. Winchester was more sophisticated and came off as pompous, but he was intelligent and more respected as a surgeon.

Stiers later appeared as DA Michael Reston in a number of Perry Mason tv-movies and did voice-overs for a number of Disney productions and most Winchester-like, he was a symphony conductor in his later years. Talented guy. RIP, Winchester...

Nole Floyd "Nokie" Edwards (5/9/1935-3/12/2018) ~ Nokie Edwards, a long-time member of the instrumental band The Ventures, died on March 12th, 2018, of complications following hip surgery. Edwards was 82 years old.

The Ventures are well-remembered for the instrumental hit "Walk, Don't Run", which peaked at #2 on the pop charts in 1960.

Stephen William Hawking (1/8/1942-3/14/2018) ~ Stephen Hawking, the world-renowned theoretical physicist, cosmologist and author, died on March 14th, 2018, at the age of 76. Amazingly, Hawking had lived with a form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (aka ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease) for some 50 years, severely limiting his mobility and confining him to a wheelchair. Hawking was numerous awards for his science work and he even made several appearances on the popular tv series The Big Bang Theory.

Anna-Lisa (born Anna Lisa Ruud; 3/30/1933-3/21/2018) ~ Anna-Lisa, a lovely Norwegian actress who was active mainly in television during the late 50's thru the 60's, died on March 21st, 2018, at the age of 84.

Anna-Lisa always reminded me of another Scandinavian actress: Ingrid Bergman (who was Swedish). She had a similar look, build and accent. While not nearly as famous as the great Ingrid Bergman, she certainly left a lasting impact on me. My favorite appearance by Anna-Lisa is as "The White Buffalo Woman" in a season 2 episode of Bonanza entitled "The Savage". It's about some Indians who believe she is some kind of mountain spirit and about her relationship with Adam Cartwright, who she nursed back to health after being wounded.

She also appeared on the short-lived western Black Saddle (with Peter Breck & Russell Johnson) and made appearances on Perry Mason, Maverick, Sugarfoot, Gunsmoke, 77 Sunset Strip, Laramie, Sea Hunt and Surfside 6, among others.

Daniel Joseph "Rusty" Staub (4/1/1944-3/29/2018) ~ Rusty Staub, a former MLB who played 23 seasons for 5 teams (Colt 45's/Astros, Expos, Mets, Tigers & Rangers), died on March 29th, 2018, of multiple organ failure. Staub was 73 years old.

Rusty Staub was what people would call "a professional hitter". The guy could just rake. Not a big-time slugger, but he had good power (292 career homeruns) and he was a solid line drive hitter. Staub had a good eye---he had 1255 walks vs 888 strikeouts and he never struck out more than 100 times in a season (his high was 93).

Staub was a 6-time All-Star who batted .279 with 292 HR, 1466 RBI and 2716 hits over his fine career.

After his playing career ended, Staub worked as a broadcaster for the Mets (1986-1995) and was inducted into the New York Mets Hall of Fame in 1986. The Montreal Expos retired his number 10 in 1993.
