Default 2020 RIP Master Thread

This morbid thread is designated to announce deaths in the celebrity world. As always, posts by our forum readers are appreciated. Let's try to keep it somewhat standardized. Provide a summary with the celeb's name, when they passed, passed from what, and their age. Also provide a link to the story, and if relevant, an IMDB link.
If you feel it is a huge-impact celeb, feel free to start a remembrance thread exclusively for that announcement. Example --- Clint Eastwood, George Lucas, etc...


In my opinion, 2019 was rather kind with regards to this subject. We did not lose a lot of people in the industry. Will 2020 be just as kind, will it be an average year, or will we make up for the lower numbers of 2019?

Do you have any predictions?

My predictions for the year --- Clint Eastwood, Alex Trebek, Kirk Douglas.
Well known, but not a "celeb," I am sort of expecting this year to be Jimmy Carter's year as well, he has been through a lot.

Other than his age, is there any reason for thinking Clint Eastwood is going to pass on this year?

He doesn't look well when you see him outside a movie role. He's not much in the public limelight and I think he is hiding something.
Hell, for that matter, Stallone looked like death in Last Blood and his voice was pretty bad.

Looks like you called it with Kirk Douglas, Krawk. RIP 12/9/1916-2/5/2020.

I'm wondering if Ozzy will go this year myself. Even after coming out to the media and saying he has parkinsons but it wasn't a death sentence, he looked and sounded like death was knocking..

I look at Ozzy like I look at Keith Richards. In a Vegas bet, you'd probably get good return on your bet if you made it.

Yeah, that's too bad about Kirk Douglas. Usually when I recently read a 'longevity' story about someone, asking what their secrets are, their answers are usually either way off the wall, like George Burns says, or just plain common sense. Douglas' response was to stay active. And that's just good common sense.
