Today, I read a tweet that Dennis Hopper passed away yesterday. A couple of days ago, I received another tweet that Gary Coleman of Different Strokes passed away too. Not too long ago, special effect master Stan Winston left this world. And just last year, Patrick Swayze died of pancreatic cancer.
I cannot ignore the fact that , these actors and purveyor of great entertainment were part of my late teen's entertainment kaleidoscope, and now each one of them have moved pass the gate of no return.
And so, I decided to google and find out who else I have missed that were part of my youth, whom have also moved past the gate this year. I found John Forsythe of Dynasty and Charlie's Angels fame, Robert Culp (I could only remember him from the countless TV guest star appearances) and Peter Graves of the Mission Impossible legacy.
Here's paying a very small tribute to them. May they rest in peace.
