There are several deceased players whose deaths are not listed on some or all of the major FB websites. I will be listing them, along with their debut team and death date, at the rate of 10 at a time, until I list all that I have. There will be no source documentation provided for any of these, since they all have birth dates listed that I am assuming are correct on all websites. If I have been able to match a birth date to a date on SSDI, unless it is an extremely common name, I have accepted the SSDI death date.  In most cases, I did find an obit, but I'm not taking the time to list that data. I hope that this will be helpful. Thank you.
