Man, what a day.  These guys have made me laugh more times than I could ever count.  Two fantastic people.

I read about Don Knotts first on CNN, then I saw Darren McGavin also passed away. :(  Knotts was amazing as Mr. Furley on Three's Company, and McGavin always makes me think of A Christmas Story.

Don Knotts is from WV. I used to live on Fife Street in Morgantown.

Such a sad weekend. I loved all those old Knotts movies and A Christmas Story is my all time seasonal favorite. The Old Man is such a classic character.

I know Knotts had done quite a bit of voice work in his later years, but I think the last time I saw McGavin was on the X-Files quite a few years ago.

They will both be missed.

Nice pictures Jeremy.  These were two very funny guys who will never be forgotten.  It's amazing the amount of work they both have to their credit when you look at it.  I forgot that Darren McGavin played Billy Madison's father.  I'm sure they've both gone to a better place.

And Dennis Weaver makes the three

(Certainly not as famous, but Octavia Butler, a sci-fi writer, died after a fall on Friday.)

I have no idea how it holds up today, but the Duel was a great movie when I saw it as a kid back in the late 70's. Very suspenseful.

Damn, $9K a week was some good dough in the early 60's. Hell, that's pretty damn good dough now!

I remember watching Gunsmoke (syndicated stuff), but recall his days in McCloud better. He was a Missouri native, too. Incredible what you learn about someone after they are gone.  :-\

Belated RIP to Bruce Carver
« Reply #25 on: March 07, 2006, 10:28:10 AM »

Obituary at Next Gen

I heard about this a while ago, but wanted to acknowledge Bruce Carver's passing at the end of last December.
He was the genius who begat the wonderful Links golf franchise, along with many other great games including C-64 Beach-Head II and 10th Frame Bowling.  By all accounts, he seemed to be a wonderful guy as well as a truly gifted programmer.  Thanks to Bruce for all the years of fun his games have given us!

Ahh...Beach Head. What a great C-64 game. Many days after middle school were spent playing that.

RIP James Oliver Rigney Jr. (aka Robert Jordan)
« Reply #27 on: September 21, 2007, 04:08:58 PM »

Sad.

This didn't seem to get a whole lot of press coverage as I'm just now reading about it today.  Granted I've been busy this week.

I guess we'll never know how the Wheel of Time will end.

He did leave notes for the final novel with his son.

There will be an end.

Yeah, but will it really be the way he wanted it to end?  We'll never really know now.  At least we'll get something.
