I don't mean this thread as a comprehensive list of people that have died, just people that have died quite recently. I like the Jim Carroll song.

My uncle died last week. He was diagnosed with cancer three weeks ago, inoperable. He was 74. I tell ya when I die it'll take about 20 men to carry my coffin. I still have bruises on my shoulder from the coffin. Anyway R.I.P, Uncle Francie and to a much lesser extent, R.I.P. Seamus Brennan.

Rap impresario Dr. Dre's 20-year-old son was found dead over the weekend in his Woodland Hills home, coroner's officials said.

Andre R. Young Jr. had been out with friends the night before and was discovered in his bed by his mother at 10:24 a.m. Saturday, Los Angeles County coroner's spokesman Ed Winter said.

"She found him unresponsive and called paramedics," Winter said, adding that an autopsy had been completed but that determination of the cause of death was deferred pending the outcome of a "gamut of tests, including toxicology."
