Celebrity Deaths – A Long Time In The Works

Posted in Celebrity Deaths, TV/Movies, Wacky News with tags , on June 19, 2015 by Bob

Greetings and salutations to you all. It seems like it has been approximately 3 months and 10 days since my last post. I apologize for that. I was in a bizarre Hot Pocket accident … no, it was a one in a million fluke while Yak shaving in Nepal … no, I have just been lazy as of late. I would say I will try to change but … who are we kidding, right? In those months, a lot of famous folks have died. Since I haven’t done it (posting the dead celebs list) in so long, I will try to stick to the high points. Or are they low points? Regardless … I am going to miss a lot I think since it is hard to remember 3 months of dead guys. I will do my best though.
