Where 'text' & 'friend' are nouns
Along with Peter Mayhew this week, there've been some big names in the past 2 months:
- movie director John Singleton
- NBA HOFer John Havlicek
- NFL HOFer Gino Marchetti
- NFL HOFer Forrest Gregg
- NHL HOFer Red Kelly
- comedian Ian Cognito
- TV game show contestant Charles VanDoren
- musician Dick Dale
- tax business co-founder Henry Bloch

I am sure I missed more (just my memory and a quick scan of sites).

Actress Doris Day, at 97.

[edit: 5/14] Comedian Tim Conway, at 85. One of the funniest people I have ever seen/heard/watched. :(
[edit: 5/16] Does architect IM Pei, at 102, count as #3?
[edit: 5/18] Or Tardar Sauce, aka Grumpy Cat, at 7?
