        Lloyd Price, the ‘50s R&B vocalist whose early singles were among the first to attract attention from the nascent rock ‘n’ roll audience, died Thursday. He was 88.

        Maxwell Entertainment owner Rickey Poppell posted the news on Facebook, saying, “My friend and Lloyd Price’s manager, Tom Trapani, just called to let me know that our friend, Lloyd, passed away last night. Those of us close to Lloyd have been keeping his declining health issues to our selves for the past five years, while Tom kept me up to date along the way. Lloyd was one of the sweetest, caring and kindest man I’ve ever known, I’ll miss him. My prayers go out to his lovely wife, Jackie.”

        The New Orleans-born singer burst onto the national scene in 1952 with his first single, the self-penned “Lawdy Miss Clawdy,” for the L.A.-based label Specialty Records. Bearing the distinctive Crescent City “stroll” rhythm – the product of an arrangement featuring pianist Fats Domino and drummer Earl Palmer of Dave Bartholomew’s studio band – it leaped to No. 1 on the national R&B chart.

            Former two-term Delaware Gov. Pierre S. "Pete" du Pont IV, who sought the Republican presidential nomination in 1988, died Saturday following a lengthy illness, his former chief of staff announced. He was 86.

            Heir of the multibillion-dollar du Ponts, he forged his political career after working for his family's eponymous chemical company.

            In a break with tradition, du Pont left his role as a quality control supervisor at the DuPont Co. in 1968 to launch his first campaign.

              Another one who was born into great wealth and campaigned for office with proposals designed to further beat down the poor.

              He looked quite a bit like Leonard Nimoy.

                • Norman Lloyd, the Emmy-nominated veteran actor, producer and director whose career ranged from The Mercury Theater, Alfred Hitchcock’s Saboteur and acting with Charlie Chaplin in Limelight to St. Elsewhere, Dead Poets Society and The Practice, died May 10 in his sleep at his Los Angeles home. He was 106. A family friend confirmed the news to Deadline.

                  During one of the famous Lloyd birthday celebrations, Karl Malden said, ”Norman Lloyd is the history of our business.”

                  Lloyd’s acting career dates back to Orson Welles’ Mercury Theater, of which he was the last surviving member. He was part of its first production — a modern-dress adaptation of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.

                      Spencer Silver, 80, died May 8 in his St. Paul, Minn., home, according to a published obituary. The artist, chemist and creator joined supply company 3M in 1966 and retired there 30 years later, after collecting 37 patents, including the one for Post-It Notes in 1974.

                      The company mourned his loss on its website, where it said Silver was known to friends as “Spence.” The adhesive used on Silver’s sticky notes was invented in 1968 at which time he reportedly called it a “solution waiting for a problem to solve.”

                            As an intrepid student reporter whose dreams carried him all the way to an interview in the White House with President Barack Obama, Damon Weaver found himself in the national spotlight at a young age. It was the Pahokee native's dream to tell the stories of others as a professional journalist.

                            Weaver, who in 2009 became the youngest person to conduct an interview with a sitting president, died May 1 at age 23, his sister, Candace Hardy, confirmed Thursday. She said his death was due to natural causes.

                            Weaver was just 11 years old and a student at Canal Point Elementary School when he met with President Obama for about 10 minutes in the White House Diplomatic Room on Aug. 13, 2009, asking 12 questions that focused primarily on education and schools.

                                Jack Terricloth, the founder and sole constant member of the Brooklyn cabaret-punk institution World/Inferno Friendship Society, has died. No cause of death has been revealed. Terricloth was 50. The band shared news of Terricloth’s passing in a Facebook post last night:

                                We are devastated to say that our guiding spirit, instigator, inciter — the person who, to most of us, lived under the name Jack Terricloth — has left us for the astral plane. We will be working on plans for a celebration of his extraordinary life. For now, we want to thank Jack for inspiring this remarkable community — something more than simply band, family, or scene — which changed the lives of so many people in ways which are hard to articulate, and which is perhaps the most enduring part of his legacy. Please raise a glass of your choice in his memory; we shall not see his like again.
