Aideen Kennedy anyone ??

Being a journo type, she'll no doubt get qualifying obits. 

"In an interview with the Belfast Telegraph in 2019, she said she lost her older sister Fiona to cancer in 2016, and that her brother Dara had died from a brain tumour less than year earlier at the age of 35.

Her older brother Rory was killed in a road accident when he was just a year old."

That is truly tragic. Her poor parents must be devastated. RIP :(

Is looking at one’s list and then checking peoples health a normal thing here? It feels a bit icky, but tied for 57th, there’s only room to move up!

It's a start. Dolls and pins come next.

Three of my first four were in hospital, and then released, earlier this year…feels like someone is mocking me.

There have been interviews with two of my nonagenarians recently, hale and hearty both.

DP points so far: none

Week 26 update

One death this week, the actor Nehemiah Persoff: Nehemiah Persoff dead: Yentl star dies as Barbra Streisand pays tribute | Metro News

Quote

Nehemiah Persoff, best known for his roles in Yentl and Some Like It Hot, has died at the age of 102.

The actor died on Tuesday in San Luis Obispo, California, after an incredible and wide-ranging career.

His death was confirmed by his daughter Dahlia, Variety reports.

Persoff’s breakthrough role was in the iconic 1959 movie Some Like It Hot, in which he played mobster boss Little Bonaparte. He was the final surviving member of the cast.

He was in On the Waterfront! I've seen that.

Persoff died in April, so if you have obscure picks it's a good idea to keep an eye on them because I might miss them. At the end of the year I'll do what I always do and go through the whole list and check as best as I can that all deaths have been recorded, but it's always helpful when people chip in.

Persoff died at 102 so he's worth 23 Base Points for @The Hologram who also gets 50 for a Solo Shot for a total of 73 points.

Frank Williams best known for playing the Vicar in Dad's Army at 90

A deadly duo for The DA and The Master

5 weeks away from having two Dead Pool picks with the same name going in the same year.

That does give Vicar of Dibley the edge in the last-cast-member-standing race, with Ian Lavender now in a very difficult survive-off against Dawn French and James Fleet.

Finn Dosser Jensen, former Arab in the 1960's.......................

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finn_Døssing

Saw him a couple of times against Morton when around 9 or 10 of the players on the pitch were from Scandinavia. Hal Stewart and Jerry Kerr were the innovators when it came to signing players from that yet untapped market. Dossing had some scoring record in his time at Tannadice.
