    Yeah, Karl, that's Robin Gibb. He's been ill for some time. Suffering from liver cancer, I think. Then he got pneumonia just recently before going comatose. His twin brother, Maurice, passed away a few years ago from cancer. And their younger brother Andy died yrs ago, drug overdose, I believe. With that, looks like only the oldest brother, Barry will be left.

  • Rest in Peace and Just read about them both even though I never heard of the guy.

    Patricia Medina sure was easy on the eyes. I worked with a gal with the exact same name and who was also very easy on the eyes.

  • It's so sad about Junior Seau. He was a great football player. I will never understand how someone can take their own life. And I hope I never do. So sad and feel such sorrow for the loved ones left behind.

  • Goober died.

    George Lindsey, best remembered for his role of Goober Pyle – cousin of Gomer Pyle – on CBS's rural sitcom The Andy Griffith Show, died Sunday morning in Nashville, where he lived, after a lengthy hospitalization, reports The Tennessean. He was 83.

    Andy Griffith, 85, said in a statement that accompanied the Lindsay family's announcement of the death, "George Lindsey was my friend. I had great respect for his talent and his human spirit."

    Griffith also said the two often spoke by phone. "Our last conversation was a few days ago. We would talk about our health, how much we missed our friends who passed before us and usually about something funny. I am happy to say that as we found ourselves in our 80s, we were not afraid to say, 'I love you.' That was the last thing George and I had to say to each other. 'I love you.' "

    An Alabama native who was raised by his grandparents, Lindsey got the acting bug at 14 when he saw a performance of the musical Oklahoma!. He was a school athlete who also displayed a sharp sense of humor, and he went to college to become a teacher, according to the Tennessean.

    While in the Air Force stationed in Orlando, Fla., he met and, in 1955, married Joyanne Herbert, and they had two children. The marriage lasted until 1991.

    Before his long TV career, which also included another comic stint on CBS's Hee Haw, Lindsey studied acting in New York and played in stage productions there.

    His survivors, the newspaper reports, include son George Lindsey, Jr., daughter Camden Jo Lindsey Gardner, two grandsons and his companion of many years, Anne Wilson.….html?xid=rss-fullcontent

  • George Lindsey- the pride of Florence State Teachers College, now the University of Noth Alabama. Funny guy and leaves a legacy of giving to UNA and to the Special Olympics of Alabama. He and Gomer (Jim Nabors) both grew up in Alabama.

  • Actor Yale Summers died. I remember him as the handsome man on Daktari.

    Actor and longtime SAG activist Yale Summers died Sunday of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 78. Summers served more than 27 years on the SAG National Board of Directors, 18 years on the National Executive Committee, was national recording secretary and past national treasurer for the guild, and was an emeritus director and a past member of the SAG Foundation board and a trustee of the SAG Pension & Health Funds.

    He also served 24 years on both the Los Angeles Local Board and National Board of Directors of AFTRA. He also helped found and produce the SAG Awards. Summers made his acting debut with a small part in the 1961 film Mad Dog Coll but did most of his acting on television, playing Dr. Bob Ayres on General Hospital, Jack Dayne on Daktari and Rodney Harrington on Return To Peyton Place.
