Celebrity Death Thread 2009

Postby Just_Jackie » Thu Jan 01, 2009 4:38 pm

Well, a new year means a new thread.

I guess I will start. She's not really a celeb but has done more good than a lot of celebs ever will.

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) – Helen Suzman, one of South Africa's foremost anti-apartheid campaigners, died on Thursday at the age of 91.

Suzman was for 36 years South Africa's most famous white crusader against apartheid, waging an often lonely and fierce parliamentary battle to enfranchise the black majority.

Suzman became one of the few whites to earn respect from black South Africans when she started making regular visits to see jailed black nationalist leader Nelson Mandela, sentenced to life imprisonment in 1964.

For those of you who are old enough to remember the original Starsky and Hutch, the actor who played the police captain died. :(

Um, he died on December 31, 2008, so that doesn't count. :cartmancop:

I agree about Jett Travolta. I mean it's sad when anyone dies. Even if it's someone you don't personally like, someone out there loves them. But when it's someone who is so young and had their whole lives ahead of them, it's even worse.
