2010 Death thread

Postby CheMateo » Sun Jan 10, 2010 2:35 pm

We lost a lot of notable figures in 2009. I hope 2010 will not have as high of a volume. So with that said the first wrestler death of 2010 is

Ludvig Borga.

I remember Borga making me so mad when he ended Tatanka's undefeated streak. On top of that Yoko and Borga broke Tatanka's ribs and he was unable to compete at the Survivor Series. Undertaker ended up taking Tatanka's spot since death was also a part of American History.

One of those Borga promos still sticks out in my mind when he was feuding with Luger. Borga was in a run down area and he was talking about how the Lex Express doesn't visit this poor and dilapidated part of town.

I just found out that he was a heel in Die Hard 3.

A Ludvig Borga promo.

Every year the amount of deaths seems to be on the up and up :(. I'll always remember Halmes' 'shoot fights' with another deceased wrestler in Shinya Hashimoto. Sad to see another one go so young. :(

Peter Graves passed away last night. I'll always remember him as Jim Phelps, Captain Oveur from Airplane, and as the narrator of Biography on A&E.

Dio died over the weekend. Shitty. Think PWG will name another show in honor, a la "Holy Diver Down" (Dio/Van Halen)?

Sad news indeed. Gary was a fun character. It's a damn shame that PWG never brought him in to manage LTP (as Excalibur said they wanted to) that would have been quite memorable.

ThunderCats writer Stephen Perry.

One of the more tragic stories I've come across.

Police in Zephyrhills, Florida, have confirmed that ThunderCats writer Stephen Perry, who has been missing for more than two weeks, is the victim of an apparent homicide.

His van was discovered on May 16 at a Tampa motel, reportedly near a severed arm. More remains were found in a dumpster at a gas station two miles from his ransacked home. Perry's roommates, James Davis, 45, and Roxanne Davis, 49, were missing as well. However, police later arrested the couple on unrelated charges. They're now considered "persons of interest" in the case.

Perry, 56, suffered from bladder cancer and had been jobless, without health care and, for a time, forced to live in his van with his 5-year-old son Leo. Over the past eight months he received assistance from the Hero Initiative, which helped him to line up work and pay rent, utilities and medical bills.

The Tampa Tribune reports that Krystal Carroll, his 26-year-old ex-girlfriend and the mother of Leo, was told on May 19 that Perry was dead. The two had a tumultuous relationship, with Carroll seeking emergency custody of their son and Perry getting a domestic violence injunction against her, all in late April.

Earlier this week the newspaper spoke with Perry's longtime friend, artist Steve Bissette, who had been instrumental in bringing the writer's plight to the attention of the comics industry. Since Perry was reported missing, Bissette has devoted his blog to remembering his friend's life and career and tracking news reports of his disappearance.

Perry was best known for his work on the mid-1980s animated series ThunderCats and SilverHawks, both developed by Rankin/Bass. However, he also wrote comics like Timespirits and Psi-Force for Marvel and Wally Wood's THUNDER Agents for Deluxe. Nat Gertler revealed that, to help the writer, he recently purchased the rights to Salimba, the jungle-heroine comic that Perry created in the 1980s with Paul Chadwick.

Hollywood icon Dennis Hopper has died at the age of 74 from complications due to prostate cancer. The Easy Rider star -- who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in late 2009 -- became too weak for chemotherapy treatments in March when the cancer metastasized to his bones. According to a friend, he was surrounded by family and friends when he passed away in his Venice Beach home on Saturday morning.

With Coleman's passing... it really makes me look at my childhood TV shows differently... especially Diff'rent Strokes.

-Todd Bridges - multiple arrests.
-Gary Colman... with all due respect, he was a bit crazy, and very angry.
-Dana Plato - committed suicide.

This just in, Dana Plato's son has also committed suicide (ok, it was last week, but my computer was down.)

What the hell was going on on that set?

Damn, now Dennis Hopper. Was he at all relevant to our generation or am I just more sentimental? Most of us Y'ers would know him from what... Mario Bros., Speed, and Crash. A lot of people are mention Easy Rider and rightfully so but my personal favorite Hopper performance was as Frank Booth from Blue Velvet. PABST BLUE RIBBON!





I heard that Hopper considered Boiling Point to be his best work. But it was re-edited and tooled to be an action vehicle for Snipes. I'd like to have seen the original cut as the Warner Bros. release was weak.

And then there was one. Sad to see the Golden Girls passing away these past few years. I hope Betty White does not pass away next year.
