He was in a couple of episodes of Stargate SG-1 too.  Played an alien hiding out on Earth, lost his memory, and such.  We actually just watched one of his episodes the other night.   :(




Pancreatic cancer, too...that sucks.  :gonk:

Cole, of the 'Cole and Marmalade' channel on YouTube died this week at age 9 due to cancer.  If you watch cat videos, you probably know this channel and may have already seen the announcement.  Good hunting little house panther!

And multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that destroys the body's ability to fight infection.

A lazy google search tells me his Parkinson's was likely a major factor of his death as well.

I'm a little disturbed to see a lot of simplistic headlines in the media saying he died of covid while vaccinated. I'm concerned that will only add fuel to the politicizing of medical practices. While there were a few times I strongly disagreed with Powell, I believe he sincerely dedicated his life to serving others. I hope my cynicism is unwarranted and nobody succeeds in using his passing (or the poor quality of media coverage on his passing) to amplify conflict or to argue vaccines don't work.

A friend died in 2020 he was in stage 4 pancreatic cancer and had a DNR order on his chart in 2019. In case you do not know that means a painful death was 99% likely within 6 months.  He contracted COVID and died. The cause of death was listed as COVID. The pancreatic cancer was not even listed as an underlying issue on the death certificate.

 So yes people see COVID and ignore the underlying issues.
I will never claim to to have all the answers. Depending upon the subject; I am also aware that I may not have all the questions much less the answers.

As a result I am always willing to listen to others and work with them to arrive at the right answers to the applicable questions.

This is true. The original article I read about his passing   (and the reason I posted that he died from covid ) never mentioned any underlying health conditions. Just  that he died from complications of covid
