I remember seeing David Avadon many times at the Magic Castle but I had never heard or forgotten that he had died.

I was lucky enough to see Ricky Dunn a few times, also at the Castle.

It's nice to see people like you that care about the historical record of magic and magicians.

Thank you.

RE: Kellar - What's pictured on "Find A Grave" is only a "memorial plaque", and not where his actual final resting place is.

RE: Percy Abbott: You'd think Percy Abbott's ashes would be at Lakeside, in Colon - but they're not.
Oddly, I don't even think there's a "memorial stone" at Lakeside for him(?)

Re: Ed Saint: In an unmarked grave in Hollywood, Ca. Hopefully that'll be rectified in the future.

I must say that this is a very morbid subject. There are those of us of a certain age who do not wish to be reminded of their impending demise.
