Chuck Barris, known for creating such American "gems" as The Dating Game, The Newlywed Game, The $1.98 Beauty Show, and my personal favorite, The Gong Show, has been "gonged at last":

The last two were part of my Saturday nights and summer mornings when I was in elementary school.  No doubt I'd be horrified to watch today, but, well, there it is.

Don Rickles:  http://www.dailywire.com/news/15189/famed-comic-don-rickles-dies-90-hank-berrien

My kids knew him as Mr. Potato Head.  I knew him as the comic on the Las Vegas marquee my mother said was just mean.  I do remember reading a bio of him in Reader's Digest back in the 80's which mentioned he was friends with Ronald Reagan but refused to insult him offstage after he became President.

RIP, you hockey puck.  ;)

Not a celebrity. My friend and former Bishop, Joe Beck, died this morning.  He had lived through cancer treatment for two years.  He was on hospice care at this home for the last two weeks.  My family had FHE with his family at his house last week. Even through the haze of pain management, his eyes were bright and his smile was warm. Godspeed, my dear friend.

Thanks for letting us know, Roper.

As celebrated as celebrities are, oftentimes it is the ordinary people whose passing directly affects us the most. I will “miss” many of the prominent figures who pass, but not in the same sense as those I know personally who were part of my everyday world or that I knew “through” someone close to me.

We all have beloved family members, dear friends, brothers & sisters in the gospel, congenial neighbors, special co-workers, classmates, students, teachers, people we encounter at the grocery store, post office, or neighborhood park, & others whose presence adds something to our lives on a regular basis. These are the folks that I think most of us miss the most when they’re gone.

I recently went to a funeral for someone I never met, who was the grandfather & uncle of a family in my ward. This gentleman didn’t live in our area & few if any ward members knew him, but his family buried him here, near where most of them live. From what was shared at the service, he had a full & fulfilling life & did good for many people, his family & others. It’s obvious that those who love him will miss him more than they’ll miss Don Rickles, Chuck Berry, Mary Tyler Moore, or Zsa Zsa Gabor.
