The Obituaries Thread


His standup routines were hilarious and he was great as Harry the Hat on Cheers. A very funny man.




62 is awful young. Sad to hear this, he seemed like a decent guy.




Looks like from reports from friends today it was suicide and he was quite troubled. Not confirmed by police but it seems so and is very sad.


Yeah Harry the Hat is how I’ll always know him. He’s the second or third Cheers guest to die in recent months.

I didn’t realize he was so young.



Troyer’s family statement did not give a cause of death but it added: “Depression and suicide are very serious issues. You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help.”

Even though that’s how I remember Schoolhouse Rock now, it’s clearly a great legacy.


Lolly lolly lolly get your adverbs here…

Figure eight…

I’m just a bill…
