2019 Celebrity Death Thread

Recommended Posts

Mean Gene first came into my consciousness in the mid-80s, so he was in his early 40s. I don't know any 42 year old who looks like 1984 Gene Okerland. Anyway, Mean Gene was one of the people who separated WWF from its competitors. He was a great foil to his wrestling counterparts in interviews. I don't really follow wrestling anymore, but I doubt whoever they have doing his job is doing anything but a pale comparison to Mean Gene.

My best friend growing up loved Super Dave. I only had basic cable, so the Super Dave show wasn't really on my radar. I knew of Super Dave from Letterman or talking to Brandmeier on the radio show. He was a great guest. I've heard him on a few podcasts and other late night shows, too. I'd recommend trying to find his appearances. He was a little like Norm MacDonald or Bill Murray as a guest. You never knew what he'd say, but it would likely be weird and funny.

Both will be missed.

King Kong Bundy, 61.  He was one of the best wrestling heels in the 80s.

Remember his appearance on Married with Children. RIP to a legend.

Coppock on Sports in the late 80s on WMAQ featuring "Dangerous"  Dan McNeil was, IMO, the greatest sports talk show of all time. Heavy on guests, like on meathead callers.  I actually went to a thing a library was sponsoring last year when his book came out, and he spoke for a couple of hours. He was a lot of fun. Corny as hell,, but I like corny.

RIP Peggy Lipton

The Twin Peaks cast has had a lot of deaths during and since the re-boot.
