To clarify, Nakamura was the founder of Namco, the company that produced & distributed Pac-Man. The character of Pac-Man was created by Toru Iwatani (still living, he had a cameo in Pixels, though in a bizarre twist an actor played him while he played a different character), while Nakamura suggested shortening the original name "Pakkuman" to "Pac-Man."

Georgy Taratorkin, mostly famous for Raskolnikov in Soviet Crime and Punishment (1970). Unfortunately most articles are translated badly from Russian, like this one...

Alan Simpson, who with his long-term partner Ray Galton (happily still with us) was easily one of the most important writers in British sitcom history: indeed, Hancock's Half-Hour and Steptoe and Son did as much to establish and shape the genre's basic principles as anything before or since.

So Alan Simpson, David Axelrod, and Richard Hatch all died. But not that Alan Simpson, David Axelrod, or Richard Hatch.

Hah, reminds me of a reaction I got when I told someone (who turned out to be a huge Game of Thrones fan) that George Martin died. (Bigger deal for me since I'm a much bigger Beatles fan than anything else.)

Ivan Koloff, professional Wrestler. The article reveals that George "The Animal" Steele also passed. Two wrestlers I grew up watching back in the day when the WWE was called the WWWF.
