Jack Parr is, but Tito Puente isn't. Ever wonder if that famous person is dead or alive? Here is the place to look it up. Sorted by name or general occupation, it makes it easy searching for people from the Watergate scandal or the remaining Little Rascals.

I love the idea of grouping compared to The Dead People Server, which I believe has been around a bit longer but doesn't have that many features.

It does contain snarky comments like:
Kurt Cobain (musician) -- Dead. Angst. Died Apr 8, 1994. Born Feb 20, 1967.

For Burt Convey it used to say:
Bert Convy (actor/game show host) -- Dead. Brain cancer. Ironically.

But it's since been removed..

I meant that Jack Parr is ALIVE and Tito Puente isn't.
Considering that Johnny Carson is 75 and that I knew Parr was older than him, I figured he'd passed a long time ago. I still remember Tito's performance in the Simpsons, so finding out he was gone was a shock to me.
