Actually, no funeral. He has been cremated already. No flowers, but if you wish to honor him, make a donation to a local animal shelter in his name.

He is going to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery, full military honors.

I can't tell you how much I do NOT want that orange idiot attending or officiating. Draft dodger Donald is not welcome, not by a long shot.

Richard E Tomac, aka Pop aka Dad, passed away Friday, July 7th, 2017.

So, so, conflicted as to how I feel. Very sad that he is gone, but relieved that he is no longer suffering.

Cancer really really sucks. :(

After a battle with pancreatic cancer, Richard Hatch has died, aged 71

I was fortunate enough to have met and had a long conversation with Richard during one of the SupaNova events in Perth. It was quiet, not a lot of people, still afew die hards hanging around for autographs. I got to talk to him for a while, twice.

“Never let others decide how good you aren’t” was one of the best pieces of advice he shared with me. He also told me (and it seems others) “Say yes. When you do, other opportunities will come along.” (or variations thereof).

He loved life, teaching, acting, writing, producing, mentoring. He will be sadly missed.

Yesterday, David Bowie, after a year and a half battle with cancer, died. I knew he had been ill, but didn't realize it had been that grave.

To me, David Bowie was as immutable as the sun coming up the next day. Normally, I just post an brief obit of a celebrity I liked, but this goes beyond that. Bowie's music was a touchstone for me during a certain time of my life. I think it kept me sane and alive. Hardly a day went by without my humming, singing, or listening to something by him.

"Look up here, I'm in heaven. I have scars that can't be seen. I've got drama, can't be stolen. Everybody knows me now."

69 years on Earth... now the Starman has gone home. He will be much missed.

Such sad, but not unexpected news. Thank you for letting me be one of your 'unofficial grandchildren'. RIP Grandpa. You truly "Lived Long and Prospered".

I had hoped when I heard this, that it was a hoax. But it's not.

Actor, comedian, genius.... the black dog got him. The world world has lost one of its brightest lights, and we are lessened for it.

My condolences to all who loved him, his family, friends, the world.
