Feb 22nd 2014 at 8:47:40 PM

People die every day. Some of them are famous, some important, many newsworthy. This thread is for announcements of deaths in the news, discussions of the legacy of those recently deceased people, and memorials of same.

Please observe the usual rules about posting ettiquette and note that this is in On-Topic Conversations.

To start with, the last of the original Von Trapp Singers has died, Maria Von Trapp, 99, in Vermont. (This is the daughter of Captain Von Trapp, not her stepmother who was also named Maria. In the musical, they called her Louisa.) http://news.yahoo.com/maria-von-trapp-99-dies-vermont-005546425.html

Still a fan of the first Ghostbusters movie, and he's done some good work elsewhere. Rest in peace.

Aaron Allston, age 53. Back when he was an editor for Hero Games, he gave me my first paying work as a writer. We corresponded for several years, and I roomed with him at Minicon once. We'd lost touch in recent years as he moved into full-time writing for the Star Wars line, but I remember him fondly.

Mickey Rooney, who some of us remember from his Andy Hardy comedies, and others from Breakfast at Tiffany's, and still others from better roles.

Nice guy: briefly met him once. He was like a dynamo that made you tired just by being in the room with him. Hard to imagine him gone, actually.
