This thread is to acknowledge famous people that have recently passed away, rather than create new threads for each one (i.e., Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, etc.) which over time would just fill up the General Talk section.

I'll begin this thread with the recent passing of legendary newsman Walter Cronkite, who died last night after a long illness. He was 92.

Called the most trusted man in America as anchorman of the CBS Evening News from 1962 to 1981, and affectionately called "Uncle Walter", he reported on many top stories including the Cuban missile crisis, the assasinations of John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr., the Vietnam war, the Apollo moon landing (which marks its 40th anniversary this Monday) and Watergate. He ended each newscast with "And that's the way it was."

Best known for A World Without Love, I Go To Pieces, Woman, Lady Godiva, Knight In Rusty Armour, To Know You Is To Love You, Sunday For Tea, Nobody I Know, I Don't Want To See You Again and a memorable cover of Buddy Holly's True Love Ways.

Early this morning, Eunice Kennedy Shriver passed away at the age of 88. A truly remarkable woman who will be missed. She founded the Special Olympics in 1962.

Has anyone mentioned the passing of John Hughes?

John Hughes died at the age of 59 (on August 5th I believe). He was famous for his films Ferris Bueller's Day Off, The Breakfast Club, 16 Candles and Home Alone which he directed and in some cases wrote the screenplay.

Late last night, less than 2 weeks after Eunice Kennedy Shriver's passing, we lost Senator Ted Kennedy. He was 77 and had been battling brain cancer.

Anyone remember that TV show The Equalizer (1985-1989)? The star of that show, Edward Woodward, passed away on Monday after an illness. He was also in the films Breaker Morant and The Wicker Man (the original version from 1973), and he made an appearance in the film Hot Fuzz. He was 79.
