Celebrity Deaths 2011

Postby Niels0827 » Sun Jan 02, 2011 5:22 am

It's the first day of the year, and we've already lost three people. While most people have never heard of them, I'm familiar with one.

Flemming Jørgensen was a Danish singer whom I heard a few songs by as a kid, thanks to my dad's Danish music CDs. He was the lead singer of the band 'Bamses Venner' (English: Teddy Bear), which is almost unheard of outside Denmark.

They say it happened on New Year's Eve, but he was found just recently.

John Wheeler III, former official during the Reagan/Bush Sr. days, found dead, 66.

Regardless of political beliefs, may justice be dealt to whoever was responsible.

Even sadder is that this 9-year-old girl was Christina-Taylor Green, granddaughter of former Philadelphia Phillies manager Dallas Green. So sad, and so young! :cartmancry:

I hate to double-post, but even weirder is that she was born on the day of the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. :(
