Everybody's Uncle Arthur topic

I was surprised to see this, as I thought he had died about five years ago.

I remember reading about his daughter's suicide. For a time people thought she was high on dope.

One of his fans was Bill Cosby, who resurrected his show about kids saying the darndest things in the late 80s.

I am also surprised the PM did not contact him to reinstate his Canadian citizenship before he passed. :P

RIP

That is the major hazard of living a long time.
