Friday (the 13th!) Daily Goodbye

Greetings obits fans! I awoke this morning in an ominous mood. My bedroom was dark and dreary; my air conditioner whirring its freezing breath over my fuzzy comforter.

Daily Goodbye

Jackie Groza, 81, was the widow of perhaps football's most revered placekickers. "The Toe," as he was known, played for the Cleveland Browns and is one of the few kickers enshrined in the Football Hall of Fame. The Grozas had been married for nearly 50 years when Mr. Groza died...

The Daily Goodbye

The man who gave the world the famously (and unnaturally) orange snack known as Cheez Doodles has died. Morrie Yohai died July 27 of cancer at his Long Island home. He was 90. Mr. Yohai invented the crunchy yummies after returning home from serving overseas in the Marine Corps during...

Friday Daily Goodbye

Frances Kuyper, 92, was respectfully known as the "Cake Lady," and with good reason: she was fanatical for fondant, and bonkers for buttercream. In 1994, she opened a cake museum in a house in Pasadena and displayed about 150 cakes, including a few that were 65 years old and hardened...

Daily Goodbye

Irishman Alexander "Hurricane" Higgins, 61, may have been a world champion snooker player, but he was best known as a world class hellion with an unquenchable appetite for women and drink. His bad boy reputation (he had a foul mouth and once headbutted a referee over a disputed call) ruffled...
