    Obituaries Notable people that have passed

    It has been mentioned that we could use an obituary thread, it would be nice if it was pinned to the top, but not an absolute need.

    Do we need to kill the celebrity ourselves first or are we allowed to post deaths we aren't responsible for?

          I'm guessing they do rather a lot of cocaine, which places quite a strain on the heart.

              ^it should counter the effects of the coke

              but anyone who smokes weed and snorts coke at the same time is a moron!

              could as well eat deep fried diet pills!

                Dame Elizabeth Taylor, one of the 20th Century's biggest movie stars, has died in Los Angeles at the age of 79.

                The double Oscar-winning actress had a long history of ill health and was being treated for symptoms of congestive heart failure.

                Her four children were with her when she died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, her publicist said. (BBC)

                Her film career lasted for more than half a century but her private life was more complicated than any storyline, and her romances kept her in the headlines.

                    RIP Johnny Pearson.

                        Geraldine A. Ferraro, the former Queens congresswoman who strode onto a podium in 1984 to accept the Democratic nomination for vice president and to take her place in American history as the first woman nominated for national office by a major party, died Saturday in Boston.

                                  Agreed. That pretty much sums DED Jr. up perfectly. Like him or not, his influence in the world of automotive journalism is un-freaking-deniable.

                                    RIP Edward Stobart

                                    Haulage magnate Edward Stobart dies, aged 56



                                    Haulage magnate Edward Stobart, who built up the Eddie Stobart lorry empire and ran it for more than 30 years, has died at the age of 56.

                                    He suffered what were described as "heart problems" on Wednesday and died this morning in hospital in Coventry.

                                    He took the business started by his father Eddie and built it into the best known haulage company in the UK.

                                    Mr Stobart sold the firm to his brother William and business partner Andrew Tinkler in 2004.

                                    The business began as a local company delivering fertiliser, and in the early days drivers wore collars and ties, which was unusual at the time.

                                    They were also instructed to wave back and honk their horn when signalled by a passer-by.

                                    There are now more than 1,000 of the distinctive trucks, with each cabin given a woman's name.

                                    The firm even has its own fan club with more than 25,000 members.

                                    The Stobart Group said in a statement: "Our thoughts are with Edward's wife Mandy, his children and family at this difficult time."

                                    Ann Preston, chair of haulage company, Preston's of Potto, paid tribute to what she described as a "very, very kind man".

                                    "He was very passionate about road transport," she said.

                                    "From a young boy he didn't want to do anything else."

                                    Sorry if my Grammar and Spelling are rubbish, I am dyslexic so I can't really help it.

                                      Eddie Stobart, something can be said for a man able to create a hauling company that is recognised and respected by drivers the whole continent over.

                                      R.I.P Edward.

                                        Jean Bartik, Software Pioneer, Dies at 86

                                        Jean Jennings Bartik, one of the first computer programmers and a pioneering forerunner in a technology that came to be known as software, died on March 23 at a nursing home in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. She was 86.

                                        ...

                                        Ms. Bartik was the last surviving member of the group of women who programmed the Eniac, or Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer, which is credited as the first all-electronic digital computer.
