    He was hospitalized last week and had surgery. RIP Mr. Rooney, although, he wouldn't want anybody giving him a lot of attention. :shuffle:

    Sad news. I enjoyed his work on 60 minutes and looked forward to guests spots.

    No he certainly wouldn't.

    Can people know that it is coming soon? He always said he wasn't going to retire until he dies...

    RIP

    I believe people can realize it's near the end.

    RIP :(

    It seems a lot of iconic people retire and then pass away rather quickly. Steve Jobs was another. IIRC, Charles Shultz retired and then passed away the day his last installment of "Peanuts" appeared in newspapers.

    RIP Mr. Rooney

    I always enjoyed his segment from 60 Minutes. So sad to hear this. Thank goodness he had a long life. I have one of his books of anecdotes. I definitely will be rereading that book.

    RIP, Andy.

    Actually a lot of people die soon after retirement, not just iconic ones.

    It's a statistic I read somewhere...

    Well most people don't retire at 92. He had 27 years when he could have enjoyed retirement, but he chose not to.

    Which is the the headlines that accompany these articles that report on this statistic (people dying soon after retiring) are kind of silly. They say things like: Want to live longer? Don't retire! when the reality is that a lot of people retire when they are no longer well enough to work and it's no surprise they die soon after.
