Gone Gone Gone

At about this time of the year for the past 9 years, Mario Axiaq and I have been putting together a list of obituaries for people known for their public life in Malta. It is an exercise that works hand in glove with Mario's project to chronicle Malta day by day and MaltaMedia's round-up of the year gone by.

While countless tributes will be made to Michael Jackson, Mike Bongiorno, Farrah Fawcett and other well known figures outside Malta, it behooves us remember the many Maltese personalities who passed away during the past 12 months.

Here's the list for this year, so far:

Charles Camillieri, Composer & Musician
(Died: 3 January 2009)

Charles Clews, Actor & Broadcaster
(Died: 29 January 2009)

Alexandra Borg Olivier, Former Prime Minister's Wife

If you think there's anyone else we should include in this list, please contact me. We'd also appreciate any corrections to dates of death as listed here, because we don't always get things 100% right.
