Terry Melcher is also infamous for having known Charles Manson for a time, Manson was trying to launch a singing career and tried to get Melcher to help him do that and hung out at his house a lot.  As many of us know of course, Sharon Tate later bought the house from him and that's where Manson's followers killed her and her friends in 1969.

1968 – Darryl Kile, baseball player (d. 2002)

One of few occasions that an active player has died during the regular season. I remember hearing about his passing; it was sad for the baseball world. :\'( Just four days before his passing, he had pitched a gem against the Angels. His cause of death, a coronary artery blockage, was reportedly hereditary, since his father had died of a heart attack ten years earlier.

I wonder what became of Lambchop?  ???
Two years after the death of her mother, her daughter producer and writer Mallory Lewis (formerly Tarcher) decided to perform with Lamb Chop. Ms. Lewis has this to say about her mother and Lamb Chop:

“ My mom was one of the world's greatest entertainers. I don't want to challenge that. I don't think it's wise to go there. But I do want to do everything that I can do for Lamb Chop. I'll help keep her going."
