From his Facebook Page

Actor and comedian Stephen Furst died on June 16, 2017 due to complications from diabetes.

Steve has a long list of earthly accomplishments. He was known to the world as an brilliant and prolific actor and filmmaker, but to his family and many dear friends he was also a beloved husband, father and kind friend whose memory will always be a blessing.

To truly honor him, do not cry for the loss of Stephen Furst. But rather, enjoy memories of all the times he made you snicker, laugh, or even snort to your own embarrassment. He intensely believed that laugher is the best therapy, and he would want us to practice that now.

If you knew him personally, remember his gift for lighting up a room. And no matter who you are, when you think of Steve, instead of being sad, celebrate his life by watching one of his movies or use one of his bits to make someone else laugh - really, really hard.

Sincerely,

His sons Nathan and Griffith Furst

I own the website Of elves and Men, and even though we began as a Tolkien fanfiction site, we are now multi-fandom and once a year, I host a Big Bang. This Big Bang has two options: a 20,000 word Big Bang or a 10,000 word Mini Bang.

Babylon 5 and related fandoms are part of our fandoms and I wanted to invite any of you writers out there to participate if you wish to do so.
You can find the info here: http://oeam-bigbang.livejournal.com/profile OR http://oeam-bigbang.dreamwidth.org/profile

If you have any questions, I’d be glad to answer them for you.

Jerry Doyle apparently died in his Las Vegas home yesterday of unknown causes. Foul play is not suspected and an autopsy is being done. Mr. Doyles was 60.

I am speechless. MY husband turned 60 yesterday.

Here is a little best Garibaldi from YouTube:


Here is a post from JMS:
Jul 28, 2016

When it came to politics, Jerry Doyle and I disagreed on, well, pretty much everything. Politically, Jerry was just to the right of Attila the Hun. There is a line in Babylon 5 where his character, Michael Garibaldi, suggests that the way to deal with crime is to go from electric chairs to electric bleachers. That line is quintessential Jerry Doyle. I say this with confidence because I overheard him saying it at lunch then stole it for the show.
Despite our differences, when Jerry ran for congress as a Republican not long after Babylon 5 ended, I donated to his campaign. Not because I agreed with him, but because I respected him; because there was one area in which we agreed: the vital intersection between the arts of acting and storytelling. In that respect, Jerry was a consummate professional. Regardless of whatever was going on in his life, whether it was marital issues, a broken arm, forced couch-surfing with Bruce and Andreas or other problems, he never once pulled a prima donna on us; he showed up every day on time, knew his lines, and insisted that the guest cast live up to the standards of the main cast, to the point of roughing up one guest star who showed up not knowing his lines. Trust me when I say that after Jerry got done with him, every day he showed up, he knew his lines. And then some.
He was funny, and dangerous, and loyal, and a prankster, and a pain in the ass; he was gentle and cynical and hardened and insightful and sometimes as dense as a picket fence...and his passing is a profound loss to everyone who knew him, especially those of us who fought beside him in the trenches of Babylon 5. It is another loss in a string of losses that I cannot understand. Of the main cast, we have lost Richard Biggs, Michael O'Hare, Andreas Katsulas, Jeff Conaway, and now Jerry Doyle, and I'm goddamned tired of it.
So dear sweet universe, if you are paying attention in the vastness of interstellar space, take a moment from plotting the trajectory of comets and designing new DNA in farflung cosmos, and spare a thought for those who you have plucked so untimely from our ranks...and knock it off for a while.
Because this isn't fair.
And Jerry Doyle would be the first person to tell you that. Right before he put a fist in your face. Which is what I imagine he's doing right now, on the other side of the veil.

God speed, Mr. Garibaldi!

Hi all!

I know I missed epsisdoe 20 and I know how important it is BUT it is coming as soon as I can get it written up. I have been tied up with an illness and death in the family and simply did not get to it. I will post episode 20 this weekend and hopefully we will be back on schedule on Monday. I'm sorry about the delay.

Big thanks to [livejournal.com profile] vjs2259 for all her help too.

Alex
