Herb Kelleher, one of the founders of Southwest Airlines, has passed, age 87.

Not a celebrity in the typical sense, but in the airline world he was.

Am I the only one who is sad that, now that Ray has passed on, his name no longer appears in the title of the annual obit thread? :unsure:

I will certainly do that. His name never appeared in the title until I put it in last year.

A few days ago...Pegi Young. A wonderful musician and writer. Also an amazing mother and stepmother to her 2 disabled sons, she gave time and money to make sure they and other children with disabilities could have a meaningful life in adulthood.
She was the ex-wife of Neil Young.

The first few tributes to her are what she needs to be remembered for. RIP Pegi.

Carol Channing, age 97, died yesterday. A very talented performer both on screen and on stage. She will always be remembered for her stage role in Hello Dolly.

Michel Legrand, musical composer, arranger, conductor, jazz pianist & Oscar winner.
Since early this morning France has been paying tribute. Winning film scores include The Thomas Crown Affair, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, Yentl & The Young Girls of Rochefort.

Singing with Catherine Deneuve is her elder sister, who was tragically killed in 1967 at the age of 25 - Driving fast to catch a plane at Nice airport, on her way to a film screening at London, her car hit a post at the motorway exit. The car burst into flames, and as the doors jammed shut she was unable to exit.
