Husker Du Drummer Grant Hart Dies at 56 Following Cancer Battle

Grant Hart, drummer and singer of the indie rock band Husker Du, has died at the age of 56.

Although the cause of death is unconfirmed, Hart had been battling cancer, according to Variety.

The news was confirmed by his bandmate Bob Mould in a Facebook post recounting how he met Hart in college and spent years making music together.

“The tragic news of Grant’s passing was not unexpected to me,” Mould wrote. “My deepest condolences and thoughts to Grant’s family, friends, and fans around the world. Grant Hart was a gifted visual artist, a wonderful story teller, and a frighteningly talented musician. Everyone touched by his spirit will always remember.”

He added, “Godspeed, Grant. I miss you. Be with the angels.”

The official Husker Du Facebook page also posted a black and white photo of Hart with no caption in the early morning hours of Thursday.

After the dissolution of Husker Du, he fronted the trio Nova Mob and also released several albums under his own name. His last solo release was 2013’s The Argument.

The Minneapolis band, which Hart formed with Mould and bassist Greg Norton in 1979, influenced many bands of the ’90s, including Green Day and the Pixies.

Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic once rebutted accolades of his band’s innovation, crediting the alternative rock band instead.

“What Nirvana did was nothing new; Husker Du did it before us,” he said, according to the Star Tribune.

Oldest Male Orangutan in North America – Who Loved Bob Barker and The Price Is Right – Dies at 45

Toledo is mourning the loss of one of its longest and most beloved residents: J.J. the orangutan.

The 45-year-old ape, who lived at the Toledo Zoo in Ohio, died over the weekend from heart failure. According to the zoo, J.J. – whose full name was Jiggs Junior – was the oldest male orangutan in North America.

The zoo announced the news on Facebook, Tuesday, calling J.J. a “beloved member,” noting that “millions of visitors enjoyed his gentle disposition, remarkable intelligence and endearing interactions.”

J.J.’s long-time zookeeper, Suzanne Husband, shared that the orangutan loved visiting with toddlers and was a little bit of a TV addict.

“One of his favorite enrichment items was watching TV,” she said. “He loved football and would make a nest in front of the TV on weekends and look like every other guy, kicked back watching the games.”

RELATED VIDEO: Orangutan Can’t Stop Laughing After Seeing This Magic Trick

Other than sports coverage, J.J.’s favorite series was game show The Price Is Right.

“He would come in from exhibit every day at and wait for us to turn on the TV,” said Husband. “He would even be a little annoyed if we were late!”

She noted that after Drew Carey took over hosting duties a few years ago, J.J.’s interest in the series waned – revealing that his affection was really for former star Bob Barker.

“Later in his life, we were able to stream his TV through the Internet and pull up old shows and his interest in the game show came back,” said Husband.

The zoo called J.J. an “incredible ambassador for his species,” noting, “He will be dearly missed.”

HONG KONG — David Tang, founder of Chinese luxury brand Shanghai Tang, has died.
The 63-year-old businessman had been suffering from health problems, which Tang revealed in an advice column he penned regularly for The Financial Times.

Actor Russell Crowe remembered Tang in a post that read: “RIP dear friend, Sir David Tang, the privilege was mine. Witty, charming, intellectual, salacious, hilarious, loving and funny as f***.”

French Actress Mireille Darc Dies

SCREEN LEGEND: Mireille Darc, an icon of Sixties and Seventies French cinema, died early Monday at the age of 79. She had been ill since suffering a brain hemorrhage last year and passed away at home, a source told WWD.
A sex symbol in her day, Darc projected French seduction with her sultry voice, heavily drawn eye makeup, fixed gaze and thick blonde hairdo. In recent months, talk swirled that her hairstyle might have inspired that of France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron.
Darc appeared in films with some of France’s best known actors, including Louis de Funès and Alain Delon, to whom she was romantically linked for 15 years.
She raised eyebrows for her role in the Seventies slapstick comedy “The Tall Blond Man With One Black Shoe,” directed by Yves Robert. In one of the film’s most famous scenes, Darc swings around to show off her high-necked, long-sleeve Guy Laroche cocktail dress. Her back is suddenly exposed, as is part of her bottom, to a befuddled musician played by Pierre Richard. That dress was featured in an exhibition at Paris’ Musée des Arts Décoratifs last year, called “Fashion Forward, Three Centuries of Fashion.”
Darc is survived by her husband, the architect Pascal Desprez.

Carla Fendi Dies in Rome

MILAN — Carla Fendi passed away in Rome on Monday evening, aged 80.
She was honorary president of the Fendi company, which late Monday evening issued a release emphasizing how Carla Fendi “never stopped to actively contribute with unchanged passion to the success of the company that continued to be a reason to live; from the first international recognitions obtained with the help of the four sisters until her last days. She was for all of us a source of inspiration and an example of dedication, work culture and sensibility for beauty. She will accompany us forever.”
Fendi  joined the company in the Fifties and with her sisters Anna, Paola, Franca and Aida, helped develop and expand the family-owned venture, mainly in charge of marketing and communication and championing its expansion in the U.S. She forged a strong relationship with Karl Lagerfeld, who last year marked his 50th anniversary as creative director of Fendi.

Jack O’Neill, Founder Of Iconic Surf Brand, Dies At 94

Jack O’Neill, a pioneer in wetsuit technology and founder of the iconic California surf brand, died of natural causes Friday at the age of 94, the Orange County Register reported.

Friends of the Santa Cruz local confirmed his death to Monterey news station KSBW 8 on Friday.

For those who don’t surf, O’Neill’s name is still recognizable as the popular surf brand with a wave-like logo seen on T-shirts, sweatshirts and board shorts, usually worn by anyone who can appreciate a beach-centered lifestyle. 

For those who do surf, however, O’Neill was an innovator of the sport and a true soul surfer. He was known as the eye patch-wearing pioneer (his eye was injured in a surfing accident) who created one of the first neoprene-based wetsuits, which allowed surfers to remain in cold water much longer, according to the O.C. Register.

While others have claimed to have invented the wetsuit, it is O’Neill who is widely credited with expanding surf culture into the colder coastal areas of the world.

In 1952, O’Neill opened a small surf shop at Ocean Beach in San Francisco ― a first for the area ― and looked for ways to stay warm in Northern California’s chilly waters, San Francisco Gate reported. While working on the neoprene-based wetsuit, O’Neill moved his shop south to Santa Cruz.

“I thought that I’d have a little shop on the beach and some people to surf with. But I kept up on the neoprene wetsuit and I soon got letters from around the world ― people who were interested in staying warm in the water,” O’Neill said in a 2012 interview with surf news site Surfline.

“Nobody is more surprised than I am how it’s grown,” he said of his invention.

Surf brands and wetsuit makers still use neoprene. O’Neill, as a brand, has branched into men’s and women’s athletic wear, lifestyle clothing and swimsuits. In 1996, O’Neill, the surfer, founded the O’Neill Sea Odyssey, a youth program that teaches environmental and marine conservation.

In an interview with RedBull TV published in December, O’Neill revealed what he values most: “The three most important things in life are surf, surf and surf.”

O’Neill celebrated his 94th birthday on March 27. He died at home surrounded by family, according to KSBW 8.

MRket’s Larry Hymes Dies

Larry Hymes, one of three partners who developed the West Coast Exclusive, the predecessor to the MRket Show, has died, according to a Facebook post by his daughter Nicole on Thursday afternoon.
Hymes, 72, died Thursday of heart failure. Details on services have not yet been set.
Hymes grew up in Queens, attended Queens College, and moved to Los Angeles in 1974. He was a West Coast rep for several men’s wear brands and in 1998, he teamed with Hyela Sablosky and Stephanie Goetz to form the West Coast Exclusive. That show was sold to Business Journals Inc. and renamed MRket in 2007. Business Journals was purchased by UBM America’s for $ 69 million last April.
Hymes remained involved in the show following its sale to BJI, resigning his position as men’s wear specialist for MRket in fall 2015. His departure followed a serious car accident in April 2015 that “changed my perspective on life,” he said at the time.
“I want to remain a part of the men’s wear business,” Hymes said. “But my focus will be on consulting with brands and companies that want to break in, expand distribution or change their current positioning.”

PARIS — Howard Dickinson, a highly respected men’s wear designer here in the Eighties, died Saturday at the Hôpital Bretonneau in Paris.

Born in Bradford, England, in 1955, Dickinson studied fashion at Nottingham Trent University, where he graduated with a first class honors degree, before moving in 1977 to Paris, where he was hired as men’s and women’s designer at Christian Aujard.
His talent was spotted by Nino Cerruti, who tapped him to help reinvigorate the Cerruti men’s wear collection in 1978. He was soon promoted to the role of head designer, also overseeing the women’s wear collection. Dickinson stayed at the house through the late Nineties, dressing numerous film stars and music icons.
Fashion journalist Richard Buckley, former European editor at the since-shuttered Condé Nast-owned men’s weekly DNR, said that Dickinson was “by far one of the most creative designers working in the industry at that time.”
“He always managed to walk a fine line between the traditional Italian tailoring that Cerruti was known for and his own nonconformist English art school sensibility. Tailored jogging pants

Dating After Your Spouse Dies Is The Third Rail Of Grieving

Ten months after Facebook Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg’s husband died, media reports revealed she had jumped into the deep end of the dating pool and was seeing Bobby Kotick, an old friend and tech billionaire. The world’s reaction to this news was fairly predictable: She was judged and slut-shamed on Facebook in crude language.

In the minds of many, the newly widowed shouldn’t date “too soon,” although no one has actually determined when “too soon” is. Is it a year? Is it when the kids leave for college? It’s a topic complicated enough that it is even discussed on dating sites

Sandberg addresses the issue in her new book, Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy. The book, co-written with Wharton School psychologist Adam Grant, is set for release April 24 and hopes to encourage resilience among those who struggle with all kinds of adversity. Given her personal experience, grief in widowhood was the clear impetus for the book as well as the source of the title.

Shortly after her 47-year-old husband Dave Goldberg died from an undiagnosed heart condition, a friend proposed that someone else in their circle fill in at a father-child event at her kids’ school. “I want Dave,” Sandberg protested in tears. “I want Option A.” Her friend replied: “Option A is not available. So let’s just kick the s**t out of Option B.”

Option B, as defined by Sandberg, is where you look when Option A is no longer available to you, and it extends to all situations, including finding romance. 

“I think I’m helping people remember that dating, for those who want to do it, is part of moving forward, and it is Option B. If I could, I would only date Dave. I made that choice. I just had that taken away from me,” she said. 

As Sandberg told The Guardian, “I’m hoping that this book helps people stop judging people who date [after the loss of a partner], particularly women, because women get judged much more harshly. Men date sooner, men date more, and women get judged more. And, you know, obviously that’s super unfair.”

There’s no “right” time to begin dating

When to begin dating after you’ve lost your spouse is a highly personal decision, said Christine Sefein, the clinical director of adult programs at Our House Grief Support Center. You might even rephrase that to ask “if” instead of “when.” Sefein told HuffPost that some widowed people begin dating while they are still attending a grief group, while others can’t imagine being with someone else even years later.

Sandberg hasn’t talked publicly about how she and Kotick shifted gears in their friendship to become a romantic couple. The New York Post’s Page Six claims credit for first revealing in March 2016 that the two were dating. The were spotted together at an Oscars party and then photographed as they left Kotick’s Los Angeles home and got into a private jet.

Don’t look for science here either

There is a dearth of research on the subject of how long people wait to date after becoming widowed, so it’s very hard to determine what’s standard. But one study from a decade ago offers some clues that could be relevant: In 1996, the San Diego Widowhood Project studied 249 widows and 101 widowers who were asked to complete detailed questionnaires at intervals after their spouses’ deaths. By 25 months, 61 percent of men and 19 percent of women were either remarried or involved in a new romance. Women expressed more negative feelings about forming new romantic relationships, perhaps unsurprisingly given the numbers. Youth was a predictor of becoming involved in a new romance for women, and higher monthly income and level of education were predictors for men. 

Anecdotally speaking, Sefein said, there is no “most appropriate time” to begin dating after the loss of a mate. And yes, people will be judgmental. “They are even judgmental about people who get rid of their loved one’s clothes too soon ― or, conversely, even when they hang on to those clothes for too long,” she told The Huffington Post.

Author Carole Brody Fleet, who wrote about her own widowhood and remarriage, speaks of those who criticize the move, asking, “Should I have stayed inside the house in my pajamas and kept the blinds closed forever?” Don’t equate remarriage with forgetting, she said.

‘Modern Family’ Star Rico Rodriguez’s ‘Super Hero’ Father Dies

Modern Family” star Rico Rodriguez is mourning his father, Roy Rodriguez, who died suddenly on March 12 at the age of 52. 

Rico, who’s played Manny Delgado on the hit ABC sitcom for the past eight seasons, shared a heartfelt post on social media Sunday honoring his “super hero” dad.

“This has been the toughest week of my life,” he captioned a photo of himself and his late father sipping on milkshakes. “My Dad was the most kind hearted, loving, hard working, determined, and funny man I have ever known. He was like a super hero, he had the ability to get the best out of you day in and day out.”

”I’m gonna miss your hugs. I’m gonna miss your advice. I’m gonna miss your smile, and I’m gonna miss your laugh,” he continued. “I know you’re looking down at us right now giving us the green light to move forward. I miss you Daddy. I’ll love you forever.”

The actor’s older sister, Disney Channel actress Raini Rodriguez, also took to social media to remember her late father, posting a photo of the two along with a touching caption. 

“You have officially been gone one week daddy and while it has been really difficult, we are all still standing tall and I know it’s because you are sending us strength and guidance all the way from heaven,” she wrote.

“I know you will continue to shine down on me, momma, Rico, Ray, Poppi and baby and we will be ok! I promise to make you proud daddy. I will love and miss you forever.”

According to his obituary, Rodriguez is survived by his wife Diane and their four children, Rico, Raini, Roy Jr. and Ray, as well as 10 grandchildren. He was laid to rest on Saturday in his home town of Bryan, Texas. 

In August 2016, Roy and his children appeared on “Celebrity Family Feud” to face off against Jaleel White and his family. Watch a clip from the episode below.

‘It’s a Danger to Our Students’: Illinois Student Dies During Unofficial St. Patrick’s Day Drinking Event

A student at the University of Illinois fell off a balcony and died Friday during “Unofficial St. Patrick’s Day,” an annual campustown event marked by its daylong drinking and rowdy celebrations, officials say.

The death of Jonathan Morales, 23, of Franklin Park, Illinois, is suspected to be an accident after he toppled over the balcony railing from his fourth-floor apartment and fell to the concrete courtyard in the interior of the apartment complex, Champaign police Sgt. Dennis Baltzell tells PEOPLE.

“He was on that balcony messing around somehow and accidentally went over,” Baltzell says.

Results from an autopsy, including a toxicology report, will take weeks but Baltzell said that Morales had been in his apartment with his roommate and friends who had come to town for the event, known commonly as “Unofficial,” and that Morales “had been drinking.”

Morales’s death was the third fatality during Unofficial, according to Robin Kaler, university spokeswoman. One woman died in 2006 after the motorcycle she was on crashed, and a man was killed in 2011 after two vehicles hit him, she said.

Unofficial was launched about 21 years ago by a Champaign bar owner after noticing he was losing business on St. Patrick’s Day because the holiday often falls during spring break, Kaler said. Instead, Unofficial takes place before students leave for break and “is typically celebrated by donning green clothing and regalia and consuming large quantities of alcohol with friends at a bar or private party, often starting early in the morning,” according to a history of the day.

“That’s the sole purpose of Unofficial: excessive drinking,” Kaler tells PEOPLE.

The “fake holiday,” she said, has become a “destination event,” attracting students from other Illinois campuses as well as those from around the nation, as determined by data compiled from police and hospital reports.

In the past, some students showed up to class drunk or tried to smuggle alcohol into classrooms, she said.

The university, police and city have tried reining in the revelry with a variety of measures the day of or in the weeks before Unofficial, including police officers going door-to-door talking to students about responsible drinking, raising the age at which patrons can enter bars to 21 that day from 18 or 19 the rest of the year, limiting packaged alcohol sales, banning guests in the dorms that weekend and sending letters to parents asking them to speak to their children about their behavior.

“We would like very much for it to never happen again,” Kaler says of Unofficial. “It’s a danger to our students …We lost a young man. That’s absolutely tragic.”

Robert Jones, the university’s chancellor, also lamented the loss of Morales. “We must find a way to work together as a community to end this event and avoid more senseless tragedy,” he said.

Morales was a junior studying communication at the Champaign-Urbana campus of the state’s flagship university, Kaler said.

One of his instructors described him as a “bright spot” in her business communications class.

“When you teach at 9 a.m. three times a week, it’s tough to have students who are consistently present, awake, and ready to jump in,” said Kate Ditewig-Morris. “Jon Morales was one of those students.”

Morales, she said, was “always engaged, smiling, and respectful to me and the other students in class. Slightly older than the others, Jon was establishing himself as a solid anchor among the others… I shall miss him very, very much.”

A GoFundMe page has been started to help Morales’ family with funeral expenses.

Spencer Hays, Chief of Oxxford and Tom James, Dies at 80

Spencer Hays, a genteel Southerner who parlayed a career as a door-to-door Bible salesman into a multimillion-dollar men’s wear business, has died at the age of 80.
The cause of death was a brain aneurysm that he suffered in New York on Wednesday, according to a spokeswoman from Tom James, one of Hays’ companies. No services have been set at this time.
Hays, who split his time between New York and Nashville, was also the owner of Oxxford Clothes and Individualized Apparel Group and the executive chairman and majority owner of the Southwestern Company, a firm that recruits students to sell books and educational materials door-to-door.
A native of Oklahoma, Hays traveled to Nashville in 1959 during his freshman year at Texas Christian University as a salesman for the Southwestern Company. Hays joined the company full time after graduation, eventually becoming president and chief executive officer. Under his leadership, the business has grown to 12 companies under the umbrella of the Southwestern Family of Companies.
He took the skills he learned in direct selling to the men’s wear business in 1966, creating the Tom James Co. in Nashville. Tom James is credited with inventing the business of selling high-quality suits to men in their

Couple Married 63 Years Dies Hours Apart: ‘I Know They Are Together’

After 63 years of marriage, Dolores and Trent Winstead of Nashville, Tennessee just couldn’t bear to be apart. 

On Dec. 9 at around 9 p.m., Dolores, 83, died after suffering a brain aneurysm; the following afternoon at 4 p.m., Trent, 88, died after his heart had weakened from kidney failure.

“I know they are together and happy for eternity, and that is a comfort to me,” the couple’s daughter Sheryl Winstead told Today. “But I never in a million years dreamed I would walk out of the hospital without either one of them.”

The pair would have celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary in January.

When Trent was hospitalized at St. Thomas West earlier this month for kidney failure, Dolores was seemingly in good health. One day at the hospital, she appeared to have fallen asleep in a chair at Trent’s bedside after complaining of a bad headache. It wasn’t until Sheryl tried to wake her up and couldn’t that the family realized something was wrong. Nurses tried to revive Dolores but her brain activity was gone after the aneurysm, according to the Washington Post. They hooked her up to a ventilator and eventually moved her and Trent into the same room. 

For their final hours together, the couple held hands as they laid in beds side by side.

The couple has two kids, three grandkids and eight great-grandkids. Their son Eddie was the one who told Trent that Dolores had died. 

“I had to lean down next to him, and just kind of tell him, ‘Mom has passed,’” Eddie told ABC affiliate WKRN. “When that happened, it was kind of like his whole spirit just changed.”

He continued, “I told him, I said, ‘Dad, if you want to go be with Mom, that’s quite alright with Sheryl and I.’”

Losing both Trent and Dolores in such a short span of time was undoubtedly difficult for the family, but knowing the couple didn’t have to live long without one another brought them some comfort. 

“It’s like God made their travel arrangements and they went together,” Sheryl told WKRN. “It’s just really sweet.”

Watch the video above for more on their story.

Growing up in Brooklyn, the son of a shoe salesman father and restaurant-running mother, Hirsh graduated from Erasmus High School and went straight to work.

Working together for five or six years starting in the late Seventies, the duo launched Gloria Vanderbilt’s jeans business, turning it into a $ 370 million brand at one point.
