XXX OOO / Ecks and Eau’s (Part 2)

Continuing from my previous post, and since we have two June 18 notable deaths that are connected other than by their date of death, and because the inner twin world tend to generate clusters in groups of three or more, this is a prompt for us to find the 3rd.  So venturing back to The Deaths in 2018 site list under June 18, I come to:
Walter Bahr, 91, American Hall of Fame soccer player (Philadelphia Nationalsnational team), complications from a broken hip.
His first and last name are additions to the  “Remove a Letter Makes a Word” pattern-cluster... as in remove “l” and “h” makes : water bar... an actual phrase that jives with my previous post... and it’s cryptic ... one that I translate as : prepare/protect.  against the sinking lands and rising sea.   Note from his wiki page:
  • Walter Alfred Bahr (April 1, 1927 – June 18, 2018) 
His birthday stands out given the following from my previous post:
  • Kurt Donald Cobain (February 20, 1967 – April 5, 1994)
  • Jamie Christopher Hewlett (born 3 April 1968) 
  • Miho Hatori (April 4, 1971)  
  • Claude Thomas Ramsey (April 4, 1943 – June 18, 2018) 
And so we now have an “April 1, __, 3, 4(x2), 5/ Date Sequence” pattern-cluster.   There are two ways to turn— bridge the April 2 gap or locate the third April 4th.  Since April 4 is 4/4, lets check out the notable Births and Deaths on April 4... in ’44.  I settled on 2 in the Births section:
1944 – Bob McDill, American country music songwriter
1944 – Toktamış Ateş, Turkish academician, political commentator, columnist and writer (d. 2013)
Given that both surnames are additions to the   “Remove a Letter Makes a Word” pattern-cluster... as in remove “D” and “s” makes :  Mc ill and ate. Note from their wiki pages:
  • Robert Lee "Bob" McDill (born April 4, 1944)
  • Toktamış Ateş (4 April 1944 – 19 January 2013) 
January 19 is also my brother’s birthday so another addition to the “Targeting Family Birthdays” pattern-cluster.    And the name Robert along with “Mc” is a finger pointing in the direction of Rob MacGregore.  I decided to investigate the notable persons on McDill’s wiki page, at first limiting my search to additions to the  “Remove a Letter Makes a Word” pattern-cluster:
  • John Robert "Joe" Cocker (20 May 1944 – 22 December 2014) (Coker)
  • Jack Henderson Clement (April 5, 1931 – August 8, 2013) (Cement)
  • Doug Stone (Douglas Jackson Brooks June 19, 1956) (tone/Brook)
  • Pamela Yvonne Tillis (born July 24, 1957)   (Tills
  • Robert Joseph Bare Sr. (born April 7, 1935) (are bar
Each of the dates highlighted stand out.  August 8th is also the birthday of my exhusband; June 19 is an addition to the “Timely” pattern-cluster, given that June 19 was yesterday... and it’s also the anniversary of this blog.  Clement’s and Bare’s date of birth adds to the cluster :
  • “April 1, __, 3, 4(x4), 5(x2), __, 7 / Date Sequence” pattern-cluster.
As  for Cocker’s date of death, note from my June 19 post:
  • William Hickman (22 December 1878 – 10 Sept1957) 
So we have a “December 22(x3)” pattern-cluster.  As for the others mentioned on McDill’s wiki page, note the following:
  • Emmylou Harris (born April 2, 1947) 
And so the April 2nd gap is bridged:
  • “April 1, 2,  3,  4(x4),  5(x2), __, 7 / Date Sequence” pattern-cluster
