:CAN Mike Bossy who scored 50+ goals in 9 NHL seasons (despite having retired at age 30!) died of lung cancer at the age of 65.

Now Guy Lafleur has passed away at 70, also from Lung Cancer. Two big losses in the Hockey world. RIP

This is sad to see:

 

Kenny Moore :USA  1972 4th place Marathon, 14th in 1968 age 78.

 

Among other things: 

 

"Moore spent several years working to try to free Ethiopian marathoner Mamo Wolde, the 1968 Olympic champion (and 3rd in 1972 to Moore's 4th). Wolde had been arrested by Ethiopian authorities who felt he participated in an assassination attempt against the country’s dictator. Moore and the IOC petitioned for his release, which occurred, but only after he had spent six years in prison."

Congolese-Dutch footballer Jody Lukoki passed away aged 29. He started his pro career at Ajax, eventually played years for Bulgarian Ludogorets and via Turkey made his way back to the Netherlands recently. There FC Twente fired him in February, most likely due to being convicted for domestic violence.
