I remembered that because he died on my birthday.Sorry to jump in Jeff, you are usually the trivia champion, but having met him briefly and having followed the Celtics since their Championships in the 80s, I wanted to pay a small tribute....neat man, he was truly Mr. Celtic!
Also, I did not learn until recently that John Havlicek had passed away, I have no idea how I had missed that! He passed April 25th, 2019 due to the effects of Parkinson's, which he had been ill with in his later years. He was 79, which is fairly young, but is somewhat in keeping with the ages of the slate of HOF players in multiple sports who have passed in the last 12 months! Most were in their later 70s or early 80s, Tom Heinsohn was 86, and Al Kaline was 85, and I think everyone else was younger. So sad, what a rough year.
