Doug Engelbart, aged 88. He was the inventor of the computer mouse in 1967, but his 20-year patent ran out a few years before the mouse became a standard part of the computer interface.

Amar Bose. Whether you consider him a genius or just an aggressive huckster, he's still a significant (if divisive) figure in his field.

I am a very very very very very big Bose fan. I am sorry to hear that.

Many of the speakers for top bands and festivals were (and I presume still are) are made by the Bose factory in Batley.

Todd Bennett.  Remember watching him,  in the 4*400m at the Commonwealths and Olympics

Really good runner. Very sad news.

When I was seven and started supporting City, Bert was still the goalkeeper. A childhood hero. My dad always reckoned he was the only reason they used to play "Football League XI" international games, so Bert could represent 'England'. Probably not the only reason, but a good one, nonetheless. Thanks for the memories, Bert.

Mel wasn't just funny in the Not the 9 o'Clock News sketch format; he could act a bit too. From the albino in 'The Princess Bride' to the hotel manager in 'Dancing on the Edge', he was excellent. Oh, and he was the co-founder of Talkback Productions, too. And he directed 'The Tall Guy'.

 

A top talent, as long as you avoid 'Morons from Outer Space'.

Great lost artist of the 70's. His reputation since has been largely maintained  as a songwriter, There must be some real gems for a retrospective album.
