A very interesting list, and fascinating to see some on there who are still alive, i.e. I thought they had died years ago.

I had similar thoughts: the ages of some of surprised me, Prunella Scales and Murray Walker being two.

I was astonished to see that MW is now 96; unbelievably just 6 years older than Stirling Moss.

Unfortunately, I was aware of Prunella Scales' age, 86, as I read an article recently outlining how she is suffering so badly with Alzheimer's Disease that she can no longer remember her children's birthdays nor her marriage to Timothy West.

They've certainly gone more in on old folk in recent years than terminally ill.

Funny you should say that. Yesterday I was at Stoke. Outside their ground they have statues of their famous players, I was taking this photo and was explaining to my (young adult) daughter who had ‘never heard of him’ who this was. She asked me if he was still living and I didn’t know so we were reading the plaque for info.  An elderly gentleman heard us and put us right...he was very much so still living and probably would be at the match today! :laugh:

On the list mentioned he is at number 19!

Dean Ford, the former lead singer of the band Marmalade has passed away aged 72 if that qualifies as the first of 2019?

One of Marmalades' greatest hits from yesteryear, it's very poignant and apt today..

R.I.P. Dean Ford while we reflect on your life.

Very sad to read that re Scales. Various friends of mine have parents suffering Alzheimer's and it is uniformly tragic.

They are horrible things any of these `ageing` conditions. I bumped into a bloke I used to work with the other day and he now has vascular dementia. It broke my ******* heart to see him now.

Journalist Hugh McIlvanney, aged 84. Widely acknowledged to be one of the best sports journalists of his generation, not trained as a sports journo originally but best known for this over and above his traditional journalism roots. RIP.

Very true but have no problem showing Saint John Cleese major/cricket piece from Fawty Towers, which is strange.

Jeremy Hardy,  comedian, TV  and radio show panelist,  has died from cancer aged 57, R.I.P. 

 

Very sad news, 57`s no age at all and he would have had a lot more to give. As above, he seemed one of the good guys and came across as a nice bloke even if you didn`t always agree with his politics.

RIP John H Haynes OBE, the creator of the famous Haynes Manual.  A hero amongst any car enthusiast. 

From an era when you could maintain a car with a Haynes and a socket set.

Another old lion gone. What precious memories and such a humble man - quite the opposite of so many modern players. Truly a breed apart.
