When I was in college, I attended a charity event where Mr. Beatty was also at. It wasn't too long after I'd seen Deliverance for the first time. When Mr. Beatty entered the room, I had to leave because I started to laugh uncontrollably. It was because of the infamous scene.
College football coach Bobby Bowden at 91, actress Markie Post at 70, son of the aviator Jon Lindbergh at 88, Kool & the Gang founder saxophone player Dennis Thomas at 70; even a famous owl in Central Park, "Barry." That was quite a group of them this weekend.
 And NHL Hall of Famer Tony Esposito at 78.
TV weatherman (and the original Ronald McDonald) Willard Scott at 87, Pittsburgh Steelers announcer and former offensive lineman Tunch Ilkin at 63 (one year longer than his jersey number of 62) after an ALS diagnosis.
