As has been said, remember and publicise the victims and their families, relegate him to a nothing, a phantom mention at end of every article written from here till eternity.

Des O'Connor, aged 88.

Blimey, poor old Des O'Connor. After a fall at his home apparently. His interview with comedian Stan Boardman contains the infamous Fokker Wolf joke, and of course, he was forever ridiculed by Eric Morecombe and Ernie Wise in their shows. Des must be one of the best-known performers the British entertainment scene ever produced an all-round entertainer.

Oh no very sad about Ray Clemence - my LFC keeper. Much like Tom Baker is the best Doctor, ray Clemence leads a long line of very good (and a few dodgy) keepers. I used to love the way England managers could never decide between him and Peter Shilton and decided in the end just to alternate them - or so it seemed to youthful YNWA.

From what I've heard a very, very nice man as well.

YNWA Ray.

Maradonna, like Pele, Croyfe and Ronaldo, for all his faults, made the beautiful game beautiful to watch. He was one of those sports personality who transcended into a world star, which takes that almost improbable odds of talent, personality and luck. Maradonna had serious drug and health problems, but he'll always be remembered as that wizard on the pitch outpacing everyone around him despite 'The Hand of God' moment.

Oh that is a shame. Sounds like a good life he squeezed the most out of from the little I know.

I think David Prowse helped create one of the most memorable characters in cinema history and was a stalwart of many TV and film productions including several Hammer Horror movies. A tragedy he's gone of course, but the Force was with him when he donned the famous Vader suit, and mask.

Ah Dave. One of the first who made me realise that  the people who profit from my favourite fantasies need to do better by the people who make them. A giant of a man, and an icon.

Ah feck. I didn't know much about the guy, but he was Darth freaking Vader. May the force be with you, Dave.

RIP Dave Prowse.
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.
