Of course we lost Farrah, Michael, and Ed, and remember David Carradine (that seems like months ago) started it all on June 3rd.
Here is a list of ones I know about, some you'll know the names others the face and if you don't know either...well I can't work miracles ya know!
Gale Storm: 04/05/1922 -06/27/2009
I remember her because I enjoy old time radio
on XM. She was on My Little Margie on both
TV and radio and later the Gale Storm Show
on TV. She was 87
I remember seeing Fred on the Donny and Marie
Show in the mid 70"s (yes I was in love with
Marie, I admit it!) Fred was an impressionist
and comedian, and VERY funny!
Known as the "Man of a Thousand Faces" He was 66.
Billy sold TONS of stuff from OxiClean to
Mighty Putty! (yes I bought the mighty putty)
He had a way of doing it that if you were channel
surfing and came across him, you would stick
(no pun intended) with him at least half of the
infomercial! BUT WAIT, THAT'S NOT ALL!
He was only 50.
Ol Harve and I shared the same birthday
(as did we with Clayton Moore, the Lone Ranger)
altho 28 years apart. Harve had a long career but I
remember him from his role in "Paint Your Wagon" and later
appeared in the movie "Fargo" and the series "Dawson's Creek" He was 75
And although he made it through the "Celebrity Death Month" by one day, who could forget the wonderful, Karl Malden?
Karl had a spectacular career and won many Hollywood Awards. Some of his films included "On the Waterfront", "A Streetcar Named Desire" and one of my favorites "Fear Strikes Out". He also starred in the 70's on TV in "The Streets of San Francisco". And everybody knows, he NEVER left home without his American Express Travelers Cheques! A classic phrase still heard today!
Karl was born March 22 1912 and died peacefully on July 1st 2009. Mr Malden was 97 years old.
