Famous Passings of 2017 - Tony Rosato Dead At 62


With the slew of celebrity/famous/noteworthy passings from 2016, it was felt that a more organized system was needed to keep things neat and tidy.

This thread is for all famous passings in 2017. We encourage members to continue to create separate threads for reporting. Source is required. RangerBoard staff will merge the threads when we've concluded that the separate threads have ran their course.

The most recent passing will be listed in the title. We will try to keep the passings organized here in the first post with the listing according to month of who, date, age and link within RangerBoard to find "said" passing.

This thread is not to vent on how much you dislike the year, world, or for whatever reason you have for the passing. It's to share a celebration of their life and legacy. You may vent your thoughts in the Venting thread, without religious discussion as that is against our rules.

Please use the Member Support section to contact us to clarify any questions you may have.

I like this idea. Still having separate threads means news won't pass unnoticed, but you won't end up with a lot of RIP threads knocking other topics off the first page. Also should prevent any more cases like the other day when a new thread got posted for someone who died six months ago and had a thread made at the time.

Not bad, half way through the day and only one death listed for today (compared to 20 on average each day last month) on Wikipedia so far, and it's likely you won't recognise the name - an African politician, Emmanuel Niyonkuru of Burundi, was assassinated at 12.45am local time.

Don't spam this thread, I specifically wrote its only purpose is to discuss the legacy of those that pass this year, nothing more.

(Forgot all about the famous passings thread...my bad, thanks mods.)

Yeah, I only know him from the Mario cartoons...sounds like that illness he had was brutal on his family, at least he's free from it.

You're supposed to make separate threads, it's in this thread's information. We merge them as we feel if the separate's thread necessary or had enough time on its own.

I checked to see if there was a seperate thread for him, but I didn't see any..

Anyway, I will always remember him as the voice of Luigi from the 2nd and 3rd Mario Cartoons...

You also need to check if it's been reported in the main Famous Passing thread. If it has, then there's no need to make a separate one.

Heard about this on the Philly college station: Richie Ingui of the Soul Survivors (who sang the classic 60s hit "Expressway to Your Heart") died Friday.
