The Well Known Dead - notable lives come to an end

Farley Mowat, Canadian writer, dead at 92:

Quote:
Mowat, author of dozens of works including Lost in the Barrens and Never Cry Wolf, introduced Canada to readers around the world and shared everything from his time abroad during the Second World War, to his travels in the North and his concern for the deteriorating environment.

More than 17 million copies of his books, which have been translated into dozens of languages, have been sold worldwide. The gregarious writer was a consummate storyteller, whose works spanned non-fiction, children's titles and memoirs.

Mowat was a controversial environmentalist who didn't always have his facts right, but he was a great storyteller.

I thought perhaps this could be an ongoing thread for those deaths we would like to note.

Older children and young adults are the main readers of his books, most of them are about living in or around the wild, lots of wildlife/animal stories, a lot of humour, and survival stories.

I doubt there's a Canadian on the planet who wouldn't recognise his name.

Robin Williams, dead at 63.



Quote:
Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that his death was a suicide, a rep did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.”

A funny man at his best, this is sad.

It seems he touched a lot of my FB friends.

Maybe in the funny bone, maybe in the rude place.
