It's a shame to say goodbye to someone responsible for saving the lives of so many people. Will he be the last in an upsettingly long line of great people we lost in 2016? I sure as hell hope so. We've had way too much of that this year.

Hell, I didn't even know he was alive.


RIP.

And even contributed to our 70's Saturday morning education, back when ABC was looking for something to replace Schoolhouse Rock:

Damn, that's actually pretty awesome. You've gotta respect someone who can be a contender for Schoolhouse Rock's scheduling position.

Not sure if joking
But, no, he died from a heart attack.

Read who the guy was again, and read what it was he invented.... Then re-read my post....

It would be cool of they lined up 21 people choking at the funeral, and gave each of them the Heimlich maneuver for a 21 Heimlich salute.

Evidently he will not, seeing as now we must add Bob Coburn to the list of great people we lost this year.

Seriously, fuck 2016. I honestly cannot wait for this year to be done so that the next one can hopefully be less shit.
