  • Robert Jonathan Demme (February 22, 1944 – April 26, 2017)
Note from my earlier post today, The Young:
 The Deaths in 2017 site lists under April 24 and 23:
  • Bjarte Erling Eikeset (22 February 1937 – 24 April 2017

 Note their birthdays, and then note this excerpt from my previous post, Rabbit of Seville:
  • Edward Selzer (January 12, 1893 – February22, 1970)  
  • Chuck Jones (September 21, 1912 – February 22,2002)
  • Michael Maltese (February 6, 1908 – February22, 1981) 
Of course I already knew what I would find there... it's in the header of this blog. What you may not know though, is that my first grandson was born on February 22, he's 3years old now, and when he turns 8, it will be 2/22/22. 
We need to investigate February 22... and so cutting to the chase:
  • Menno Oosting (17 May 1964 – 22 February 1999) 
His name gives us a cryptic "men no ost (bone/death) ousting".  Note the following info regarding one of the notable persons mentioned on his wiki page;
  • Eugène Roland Georges Garros (6 October 1888 – 5 October 1918) 
We now have an "October __, 5, 6, __/ Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.  
On the October 4 wiki page... and cutting to the chase:
  • Michael Smith (April 26, 1932 – October 4, 2000)
  • Art Stewart Farmer (August 21, 1928 – October 4, 1999) 
Smith's birthday is TODAY!!  
On the October 8 wiki page, a group of three caught my eye:
Two very famous poet/author's ... and a Thomas just above... a name that means "twin" in origin and so a heads up.  Note from their wiki pages:
  • Thomas Reid (26 April 1710 – 7 October 1796) 
  • Edgar Allan Poe (January 19, 1809 – October 7, 1849) 
  • Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. (August 29, 1809 – October 7, 1894)
