Notable deaths in 2019

Actor Luke Perry, who rose to superstardom on the teen-oriented 1990s U.S. television drama "Beverly Hills 90210" and then aged into a fatherly role on comic-based "Riverdale," died March 4 at the age of 52 after suffering a stroke a week earlier. Since 2016, Perry had played Fred Andrews, father of Archie Andrews, in the television series "Riverdale," a dark twist on the Archie comic books, but more than 20 years earlier the actor had been a heartthrob who adorned the cover of scores of magazines aimed at adolescent girls, thanks to "Beverly Hills 90210." The series, which aired on the Fox network, was about a group of attractive high school students living the sweet life amid Southern California affluence while dealing with teen angst, as well as a raft of more serious issues such as date rape, AIDS and teen pregnancy. Perry was in his mid-20s when he started playing high schooler Dylan McKay, a brooding loner on a motorcycle with prominent sideburns and bad-boy tendencies. An avalanche of comparisons to the late James Dean soon followed.

Keith Flint, the Prodigy lead singer who captured the hedonistic spirit of 1990s British rave culture, was found dead March 4 aged 49 in what the band's founder described as a suicide. Flint was one of the best known faces of British electronic music, performing apparently random dance moves often with eccentric hair cuts, sometimes styled as devil's horns, and heavy makeup around his eyes. "I'm a firestarter, twisted firestarter," Flint sang in the 1996 hit which introduced the blistering sounds of Britain's underground rave generation to the mainstream. "I'm the self inflicted, mind detonator, yeah." Will Hodgkinson, rock critic for The Times, said Flint personified the British rave culture of the early 1990s. "After meeting (founder Liam) Howlett at a rave in 1989, Flint helped to turn the Prodigy into a band that captured the spirit of young Britain at the time: hedonistic, semi-legal, and definitely interested in doing some freaky dancing at a rave at three in the morning, ideally on ecstasy," Hodgkinson said.

Haute-couture designer Karl Lagerfeld, artistic director at Chanel and an icon of the fashion industry with his extravagant outfits and striking catwalks, died February 19 aged 85. Instantly recognizable in his dark suits, pony-tailed white hair and sunglasses, Lagerfeld was best known for his association with Chanel but delivered collections for LVMH's Fendi and his own eponymous label. The German designer was best known for his association with France's Chanel, dating back to 1983. The brand, the legend now goes, risked becoming the preserve of monied grannies before he arrived, slashing hemlines and adding glitz to the prim tweed suits of what is now one of the world's most valuable couture houses. A craftsman who combined artistic instinct, business acumen and commensurate ego, Lagerfeld was known for his strikingly visual fashion show displays. But Lagerfeld, who simultaneously churned out collections for LVMH's Fendi and his eponymous label - an unheard of feat in fashion - was almost a brand in his own right. Sporting dark suits, white, pony-tailed hair and tinted sunglasses in his later years that made him instantly recognizable, an irreverent wit was also part of a carefully crafted persona. "I am like a caricature of myself, and I like that," runs one legendary quote attributed to him, and often recycled to convey the person he liked to play. "It is like a mask. And for me the Carnival of Venice lasts all year long."

Lee Radziwill (pictured 2nd R with daughter Anna Christina Radziwill), the younger sister of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (L) who was witness to history in the "Camelot" White House, married a prince and counted Andy Warhol, Truman Capote and Rudolf Nureyev as friends in a star-studded life, died February 15 at the age of 85. Radziwill's world was inhabited by doyennes of high society, artistic celebrities, fashion moguls and wealthy, prominent husbands - including one whose royal status made her a real-life princess. She was an actress, interior decorator, author, fashion public relations executive and television interviewer, although some of those careers were short-lived. Radziwill was a portrait of sophistication and words such as "enchanting" and "adored" seasoned her conversations. For years she was a perennial entry on international best-dressed lists. Caroline Lee Bouvier was born March 3, 1933, in Southampton, New York, four years after her sister, the future first lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis. She was called Lee to appease a "rather unpleasant grandfather," Radziwill told the New York Times. The Bouvier sisters were close but there was an undercurrent of competition between them. One biographer said the girls' father, the dashing John "Black Jack" Bouvier, favored Jackie and Lee felt she could not live up to his expectations. Both girls idolized their father but Lee said she had a difficult relationship with their mother, Janet, who called her fat. Radziwill recoiled at suggestions of resentment toward her sister, telling People magazine in 1976, "It's just the most ludicrous talk in the world that we're rivals. We're exceptionally close and always have been."

Yannis Behrakis, one of Reuters' most decorated and best-loved photographers, died March 2 after a long battle with cancer. He was 58. After joining the news wire 30 years ago, Behrakis covered many of the most tumultuous events around the world, including conflicts in Afghanistan and Chechnya, a huge earthquake in Kashmir and the Egyptian uprising of 2011. In the process, he won the respect of both peers and rivals for his skill and bravery. He also led a team to a Pulitzer Prize in 2016 for coverage of the refugee crisis. What underpinned everything Behrakis did in his professional life was a determination to show the world what was happening in conflict zones and countries in crisis. "My mission is to tell you the story and then you decide what you want to do," he said. "My mission is to make sure that nobody can say: 'I didn't know'."

Acclaimed conductor, composer and pianist Andre Previn, a versatile musician who won four Academy Awards for film scores and led some of the world's great orchestras while mastering a rainbow of musical forms, died on February 28 at age 89.  Previn, who won numerous awards for his musical accomplishments, was composing new music until only a few days before he passed away, IMG Artists said in a statement. The German-born musical prodigy who fled Nazi persecution with his Jewish family in 1938 to Paris and then Los Angeles, Previn made his name as a jazz musician and writing scores for movies. By the end of his career, he had become one of the prominent music figures in the second half of the 20th century. Previn was a conductor of major orchestras in Europe and America including the London Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, Houston Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic and others. He also composed numerous classical works including two operas, "A Streetcar Named Desire" and "Brief Encounter." His hundreds of recordings led to a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010 and 10 other Grammys. Previn was knighted by Britain's Queen Elizabeth in 1996. His personal life was controversial, with five marriages, including one to actress Mia Farrow (seen here with Previn at the Kennedy Center Honors in December 1998).

Stanley Donen, the former dancer who directed some of Hollywood's greatest musicals including Gene Kelly's landmark "Singin' in the Rain," "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" and "On the Town," died February 21 at age 94. Donen, who was given an honorary lifetime achievement Oscar in 1998 and wowed the crowd with an impromptu song-and-dance routine, died of a heart attack. The former Broadway dancer brought hugely imaginative dance sequences to film - Fred Astaire danced up a wall and across a ceiling in "Royal Wedding" (1951) - during a career that established him as one of the masters of the movie musical. But Donen also excelled in other genres, directing the witty Faustian comedy "Bedazzled" (1967) with Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, the romance-thriller "Charade" (1963) with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn, and the romantic comedy "Indiscreet" (1958) with Grant and Ingrid Bergman. "Singin' in the Rain" (1952), which Donen co-directed with Kelly, is a song-and-dance classic hailed by the American Film Institute in 2006 as the greatest movie musical ever made.

Cardiff City's Argentina-born soccer player Emiliano Sala, 28, had been flying from his previous club Nantes in western France to Wales on January 21 to make his debut for the Premier League team when the single-engined Piper Malibu aircraft disappeared over the English Channel. A body retrieved from the wreckage was formally identified as Sala on February 7. Sala had agreed to join relegation-threatened Cardiff for a club-record fee of 15 million pounds ($19.43 million) from French Ligue 1 club Nantes. The plane had been cruising at 5,000 feet (1,525 m) when the pilot requested to descend to a lower altitude on passing Guernsey. It then lost radar contact at 2,300 feet. Argentine newspaper Clarin published a voice message that Sala, who had played in France since 2012 and scored 12 goals for Nantes this season, apparently sent to friends while in the air. "We're up in the plane and it seems it's about to crash," said the message, which Clarin said was verified by Sala's father, Horacio Sala. "If you have not heard anything from me in an hour and a half, I don't know if they're going to send someone to find me, because, you know, they're not going to be able to," the message said. "Dad. I'm really scared."

Carol Channing, who won over audiences with a giddy, guileless charm in trademark roles in Broadway's "Hello Dolly" and "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," died January 15 at the age of 97, according to her publicist. Channing died of natural causes in Rancho Mirage after having suffered multiple strokes last year, publicist Harlan Boll said. In a career that spanned seven decades, the saucer-eyed, raspy-voiced musical-comedy star never shook her associations with matchmaker Dolly Levi from the 1964 Broadway musical "Hello Dolly!" or gold digger Lorelei Lee in Anita Loos's "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes." Still, unlike many stars who dislike being linked strongly to the characters they have played, Channing was pleased to be identified with Lorelei, as well as Dolly, a role that won her a Tony Award. "Audiences expect and demand I sing these songs," she once told a reporter of her signature tunes, "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend" and "Hello Dolly." "I'm lucky to be so closely associated with both 'Diamonds' and 'Dolly.' ... I'm luckier than most - I have two identity songs."

Einstein was known most recently for playing Marty Funkhouser, the aggravating old friend of Larry David on HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Einstein also created the character of Super Dave Osborne, a fearless but accident-prone daredevil who made appearances on "Smothers Brothers" and other comedy-variety shows starting in the late 1960s. Einstein won an Emmy as part of the writing staff of "Smothers Brothers" in 1969. He also earned a writing Emmy in 1977 for his work on Dick Van Dyke's "Van Dyke and Company" series.

Bruno Ganz, the Swiss actor who portrayed Adolf Hitler in Oscar-nominated film "Downfall" and the kindly grandfather in "Heidi," died of cancer on February 16 aged 77. Ganz had been active in German language theater, film and television for more than 50 years and was the holder of the Iffland-Ring, the most important award for German-speaking actors. In the early 1960s Ganz left Switzerland to work in theater in Germany, and from the 1970s onwards he acted at the Berlin-based Schaubuehne theater. He earned praise for his performances, while also branching out into cinema, where he worked with renowned German directors like Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog and Volker Schloendorff. In 1987 Ganz played an angel called Damiel in Wenders's film "Wings of Desire," entitled "Sky Over Berlin" in German, who becomes mortal so he can experience earthly pleasures. One of his most famous roles came when he played Hitler in the 2004 film "Downfall," which dramatized the last days of the Nazi dictator in his Berlin bunker, one of Germany's first attempts to characterize the Fuehrer in film. Ganz portrayed Hitler as a ranting and delusional madman, but also as a fatherly figure suffering from Parkinson's disease who fussed about the welfare of his secretaries. Scenes of him ranting furiously at his staff spawned a wave of internet parodies and memes. Immersing himself in that role affected the actor, who later admitted he had been haunted by his portrayal for a very long time. "I tend to identify with my roles to such an extent that I appear to be totally convinced about certain statements that, in real life, I would never believe in," Ganz said. He also continued to work on the stage, playing classic roles like "Faust" and "Hamlet," as well as appearing in films including "The Reader," "The Manchurian Candidate" and "The Tree of Life."

Gordon Banks, the goalkeeper in England's 1966 World Cup-winning team, died February 12 at the age of 81. Banks won 73 caps for England between 1963 and 1972 and made nearly 200 appearances for Stoke before his playing career was brought to an end in a car crash that cost him his sight in one eye. Widely regarded as one of the greatest goalkeepers to have played the game, Banks will probably be best remembered for the diving stop he made to deny Brazil's Pele at the 1970 World Cup, which later became known as the "save of the century." Banks played every game in the 1966 World Cup including the 4-2 victory over West Germany in the final at Wembley -- the only time England has won the world title. Four years later though, in Mexico, he produced one of the most outstanding saves in the history of the tournament in a group game in which Brazil beat England 1-0. Pele rose to head a cross from the byline by right-winger Jairzinho, thundering the header down towards Banks' right hand post. The ball appeared to be past Banks, but his agility and strength saw him get down and palm it high and wide to safety.

John Dingell, a gruff Michigan Democrat who entered the U.S. House of Representatives in 1955 to finish his late father's term and became a legislative heavyweight and longest-serving member of Congress, died on February 7. He was 92. The former lawmaker's wife, Debbie Dingell, who was elected to succeed him, was with him when he died peacefully at home in Michigan. "He was a lion of the United States Congress and a loving son, father, husband, grandfather, and friend," Debbie Dingell's office said. "He will be remembered for his decades of public service to the people of Southeast Michigan, his razor sharp wit, and a lifetime of dedication to improving the lives of all who walk this earth." Dingell served 59 years in the House before retiring in 2015. He served as chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee for 16 years, where he pushed major legislation, including the breakup of telecommunications firm AT&T, cable deregulation, the Endangered Species Act and the Clean Air Act. He also played an important role in passing the legislation leading to Medicare, the health insurance program for elderly Americans, in 1965, and the Affordable Care Act in 2010, popularly known as Obamacare. Dingell did not win all of his legislative fights. He opposed the North American Free Trade Agreement, which was approved in 1993. In his later years as a legislator, Dingell navigated Capitol Hill in a motorized scooter bearing a vanity plate emblazoned with the words "THE DEAN," the title for the longest-serving member of the House.

He was 92. The former lawmaker's wife, Debbie Dingell, who was elected to succeed him, was with him when he died peacefully at home in Michigan. "He was a lion of the United States Congress and a loving son, father, husband, grandfather, and friend," Debbie Dingell's office said. "He will be remembered for his decades of public service to the people of Southeast Michigan, his razor sharp wit, and a lifetime of dedication to improving the lives of all who walk this earth." Dingell served 59 years in the House before retiring in 2015. He served as chairman of the Energy and Commerce Committee for 16 years, where he pushed major legislation, including the breakup of telecommunications firm AT&T, cable deregulation, the Endangered Species Act and the Clean Air Act. He also played an important role in passing the legislation leading to Medicare, the health insurance program for elderly Americans, in 1965, and the Affordable Care Act in 2010, popularly known as Obamacare. Dingell did not win all of his legislative fights. He opposed the North American Free Trade Agreement, which was approved in 1993. In his later years as a legislator, Dingell navigated Capitol Hill in a motorized scooter bearing a vanity plate emblazoned with the words "THE DEAN," the title for the longest-serving member of the House.

She was a co-founder of the Bridge School for children with severe disabilities, created in part by the Youngs when they were unable to find a suitable learning environment for their son Ben, who has cerebral palsy. Pegi toured as a backing vocalist with Neil for years, but was also a musician in her own right, releasing several records as a solo artist and with her band The Survivors. Neil divorced Pegi in 2014 after 36 years of marriage.

John Bogle, whose family's struggles during the Great Depression led him to pioneer low-cost investing and to found Vanguard Group, now the world's biggest mutual fund firm, died January 16 at the age of 89. He often mixed sharp rhetoric with a wry sense of humor and established a reputation as a curmudgeon in his industry, at times at odds with Vanguard executives who eventually stripped him of much of his power within the organization. Still Bogle, known widely as Jack, kept deep professional friendships and maintained a loyal following through his books and public speaking appearances. Some termed themselves "Bogleheads" in his honor and spread online his messages of thrift and investments in low-fee funds. "Jack did more for American investors as a whole than any individual I've known," billionaire Warren Buffett said in a statement. At the 2017 annual meeting of his company Berkshire Hathaway Inc, which Bogle attended, Buffett estimated that by making low-cost index funds so popular for investors, Bogle "put tens and tens and tens of billions of dollars into their pockets." Vanguard promoted low-cost index funds, products that Fidelity and the rest of the industry came to emulate.

British actor Albert Finney, who rose to fame on a post-war wave of gritty, working-class dramas and became an Oscar-nominated international star, died February 7 at the age of 82. Born in Salford, Greater Manchester, in 1936, he began his career as a Shakespearean theater actor. He made his name in 1960 with "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning," one of a new generation of down-to-earth British films dubbed kitchen-sink dramas in which he played an angry young factory worker. His fame spread further when he was cast as the lead in bawdy historical romp "Tom Jones" in 1963, which won four Oscars including Best Picture and brought Finney the first of his four nominations for best actor. Finney, who twice refused official honors including a knighthood, also starred as Hercule Poirot in "Murder on the Orient Express (1974) and appeared in Erin Brockovich (2000) - for which he was nominated as best supporting actor - and the James Bond film "Skyfall" (2012). He also continued to grace the stage, tackling meaty Shakespearean roles including King Lear, Hamlet and Macbeth. "His performances in plays by Shakespeare, Chekhov and other iconic playwrights throughout the 60s, 70s and 80s stand apart as some of the greatest in our 200 year history," London's Old Vic Theatre said on Twitter.

Walter B. Jones, a veteran Republican U.S. congressman from North Carolina, died February 10 at age 76. Jones was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1995 and had been a member of the House Committee on Armed Services, instrumental in sponsoring legislation about veterans. Once a vocal supporter of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Jones later regretted his championing of the war and wrote to the families of U.S. service members killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. "I have signed over 12,000 letters to families and extended families who've lost loved ones in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and that was for me asking God to forgive me for my mistake," Jones told NPR in 2017.

Former U.S. pairs skating champion John Coughlin died January 18 at his home in Kansas City, Mo., USA Today reported. He was 33. The newspaper attributed its report to a Facebook post from his sister. "My wonderful, strong, amazingly compassionate brother John Coughlin took his own life earlier today," Angela Laune wrote. "I have no words." Coughlin had been a coach and TV commentator and had been active with both the U.S. Figure Skating and International Skating Union organizations in recent years. His death came the day after SafeSport and USFS suspended him from participating in sanctioned skating events. While no reason was given for the suspension, SafeSport is charged with ending abuse in sports. It investigates many forms of abuse but has "exclusive jurisdiction over allegations of sexual misconduct," USA Today said. SafeSport had restricted his eligibility to take part in events on Dec. 17, then changed his status to an interim suspension on January 17. USFS' action swiftly followed. He would not have been allowed to work at the national figure skating championships being held that week in Detroit. Coughlin and partner Caitlin Yankowskas won the U.S. pairs title in 2011, and he won the following year with Caydee Denney. He finished in sixth place in 2011 in the world championships and eighth in 2012.

French composer and pianist Michel Legrand died February 26 at 86 after a career in which he stood out for soundtracks in screen musicals with Catherine Deneuve and that won him three Oscars. Born in 1932 in Paris and son of conductor and composer Raymond Legrand, he trained at a music conservatory in the French capital before starting his career as a musician and songwriter with popular singers like Maurice Chevalier. He rose to fame in the 1960s by turning to film scores, notably teaming up with director Jacques Demy for a series of musicals, including "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" ("Les Parapluies de Cherbourg") that was awarded the top-prize Palme d'or at the Cannes festival in 1964. Legrand described the skepticism surrounding the future Cannes winner, in which a cast led by a young Catherine Deneuve sing their dialog rather than songs in the traditional style of musicals. Legrand worked with Demy and Deneuve in more screen musicals, while also collaborating with other rising stars of French cinema like Jean-Luc Godard and Claude Lellouch. He soon established his name in the United States by working with jazz stars like Miles Davis and Stan Getz, and penning music for Hollywood films. He was feted with three Oscars.
