    Actually, I didn't realize that he was still alive and only 81.

    I used to love Run For Your Life and watched it every week. He drove a cool car in that show.

    RIP Ben
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    ...and now there are none, alive. The memory of their work lives on.
