    2019 In Memoriam Thread

    It might be better than having 600 threads commemorating people.


    So we start with...

    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    Great idea, Bill, need to get a mod to pin this in the Sticky Threads or it will get lost.

    Gone but not forgotten......

    Daryl Dragon had a couple brothers (Dennis and Doug) - and together as a group they called "The Dragons", collaborated on a soundtrack to a popular 70's Hal Jepsen surf move called "A Sea For Yourself". I have the LP and the movie on DVD.

    Those were some trippy cool times......hard to forget.....

    Peter Tork, a blues and folk musician who became a teeny-bopper sensation as a member of the Monkees, the wisecracking, made-for-TV pop group that imitated and briefly outsold the Beatles, died Feb. 21. He was 77.
    His death was confirmed by his sister Anne Thorkelson, who did not say where or how he died. Mr. Tork was diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma, a rare cancer affecting his tongue, in 2009.

    Nathaniel Taylor, the actor who played Rollo Lawson on the 1970s sitcom "Sanford and Son," died Feb. 27 at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after suffering a heart attack. He was 80.
    As part of the recurring cast on "Sanford and Son," Taylor appeared in 32 episodes from 1972 through 1977. Taylor's character, Rollo Lawson, was Lamont Sanford's best friend and often a target of Fred Sanford's ire, who believed Rollo was a criminal since he had spent time in jail. Taylor went on to have a role as part of the main cast in season one of the short-lived "Sanford and Son" spinoff "Sanford," which aired from March 1980 to June 1981.
