Well Ennio Morricone was an absolute genius simple as that. His scores still standout as very possibly the greatest ever written for film. Just this weekend we've been showing the kids edited highlights of 'The Good The Bad and The Ugly' as they were so intrigued by the music when we had it on in the car the other day.

Ennio would be one I'd assumed had already departed...

Going to have to listen to the Nephilim now!

Ron Graham, as in Graham's Number, it's kind of a big deal.
You may quote me on that.

Brain aneurysm is what I read.  Was very sorry to hear it too, I loved his frequent appearances on Will Wheaton's Tabletop show and of course Mythbusters, always so sharp, positive and cheery. Same age as me, although he'd have passed for my son. You never know the hour. RIP.

.... his frequent appearances on Will Wheaton's Tabletop show ...

Aha  - not an avid watcher of Will Wheatons thing, but wondered why he was familiar to me when I haaven't seen any of the shows reported in his obituary.  Yeah - seemed like a really nice guy and what an age to go

Maurice Roëves as Warden Miller - it doesn't actually look like that bad a film from that clip (until the last second or two).
