    Three notable deaths mentioned on the news today (August 29, 2016)

    I heard today that three notable people died, even though they died a little earlier in the month. One of which is rather sad as it took nearly two weeks for the death to be reported.

    Name (Date of Death) - Notable Contributions - Cause of Death
    Juan Gabriel (Aug. 28) - Pioneer of Latin Music - Heart attack
    John Ellenby (Aug. 17) - Inventor of the Laptop - Unknown as of yet
    Gene Wilder (Aug. 28) - actor famous w/ Mel Brooks - Alzheimer's

    Will add credible sources for each later, once I find at least 2 for each of them.

    Oh no!!! He was a really great guy! I used hang with him, along with Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper, Andre the Giant and -- my personal favorites -- Junk Yard Dog and The Iron Sheik way back when DIC was producing Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling.

    R.I.P., Mr. Fuji.

    Cool! I loved that cartoon as a kid! Before I ever watched wrestling.

    Here is the article on Mr. Fuji's passing: http://variety.com/2016/biz/news/mr-...me-1201846287/

    Separately, my sister and I loved a lot of Gene Wilder movies growing up. "Willy Wonka" and "Haunted Honeymoon" especially.
