    I heard about Zimmer last night but I didn't know that we lost the last Navajo Code talker, what an amazing story from the War.

    Which makes the second Bob Welch passing to be mentioned in this thread.

    From 6/7/12:

    Here's something to think on: Unless I'm mistaken, only three former members of Fleetwood Mac have died. All have been within the last year. And all were named Bob. Creepy, eh?

    Do you check everytime a name is added if he/she has already been listed?

    No, the musician's name was what popped into my head. Originally I was going to say, "Not to be confused with the singer of the same name." I had forgotten that he had passed away as well, so I checked the thread and saw that he had been mentioned here, and that I had commented on it.

    Quite a few sports names passing away lately, but today's makes the third of the Three (with Noll & Kasem), I think: baseball Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, of cancer at 54.

    I had heard about Gwynn having cancer so this isn't a total shock but it still saddens me. While never a Padre fan I did like Gwynn, at one point I did have a Padre hat because of him. If the Splendid Splinter said you were a good hitter thats more then enough to convince me.

    The great Gerry Goffin, at the age of 75.

    Who's Gerry Goffin?

    Turn your radio to the oldies station and chances are pretty good you'll hear something written or co-written by him.
    Tommy, close your eyes.
