Welcome to another edition of Dead End.

We say goodbye to Joe Rosenthal, the news photographer who

founder Robert Hoffman, Cinnabon co-creator Ray Lindstrom, 
and voice actor Tony Jay.

ROBERT HOFFMAN, LAMPOON CO-FOUNDER, DEAD AT 59

Famed arts patron Robert K. Hoffman, who also helped found 
the parody magazine National Lampoon, died last weekend in 
Texas at the age of 59. While attending Harvard University 
in the late 1960s, Hoffman helped found National Lampoon 
magazine with Henry Beard and Douglas Kenney, before event-
ually entering the business sector and becoming a noted 
philanthropist to the arts before his death Sunday, the 
Dallas Morning News said. "National Lampoon never would have 
happened, and none of the things that came out of it would 
have happened without Robert," Beard told the Morning News. 
Hoffman, who sold his interest in the magazine in 1975, was 
voted one of the top 50 philanthropists for 2005 by Business 
Week after he and his wife, Marguerite Steed Hoffman, 
donated nearly $150 million in art last year. Hoffman is 
survived by his wife, his brother Dr. Richard Hoffman, his 
mother and three daughters.

JOE ROSENTHAL, NEWS PHOTOGRAPHER, DEAD AT 94

Joe Rosenthal, the news photographer who won a Pulitzer 
Prize for a shot of U.S. Marines raising a flag at Iwo Jima, 
has died at the age of 94. Rosenthal, born Oct. 9, 1911, in 
Washington, was found dead Sunday morning in his bed at his 
home in an assisted living center in Novato, Calif., The 
San Francisco Chronicle reported. In 1945, the Pulitzer 
Committee described the black and white Iwo Jima photo he 
took while a 33-year-old Associated Press photographer as a 
"frozen flash of history," the newspaper said. Despite the 
photo's enormous fame, Rosenthal made little money from it, 
the newspaper said. He received a $4,200 bonus in war bonds 
from his employer, a $1,000 photography prize from a camera 
magazine and about $700 for a couple of radio appearances.
Meanwhile, he told the Chronicle, where he later worked, he 
kept a framed certificate declaring him an honorary Marine, 
which he said was his proudest possession. He is survived 
by his daughter, an adopted son, grandchildren and great-
grandchildren.

RAYMOND LINDSTROM, CINNABON CREATOR, DEAD AT 63

Raymond Lindstrom, one of the creators of the original 
Cinnabon, has died at the age of 63. He suffered from the 
early-onset of Alzheimer's disease. Lindstrom's 25-year 
career with Seattle-based Restaurants Unlimited led to the 
creation of several signature Seattle restaurants along with 
the Cinnabon pastry. His interview with Restaurants Unlimited's 
founder Rich Komen landed him a job in Tacoma, where he over-
saw the final construction and opening of a Clinkerdagger's. 
He later controlled all restaurant operations, and in 1979 
became company president. It was in the mid-1980s that Komen 
came up with the idea of cinnamon rolls as a specialty food, 
and his team went on to create a memorable one that has become 
a mainstay of malls throughout North America. Lindstrom was 
married three times. He is survived by his wife, his two sons 
Jeff and Greg, and a daughter, Katie.

TONY JAY, VOICE ACTOR, DEAD AT 73

Tony Jay, a prolific voice actor who appeared in hundreds of 
commercials for radio and TV as well as cartoons and video 
games, has died at 73. The Los Angeles Times reported that
Jay died on Aug. 13 at Kindred Hospital in Los Angeles. His 
wife, Marta MacGeraghty Jay, said the veteran actor died 
from complications after a surgery to remove cancer from his 
lungs. Jay, who possessed a uniquely baritone voice, often 
played the villain in video games and cartoons, the Times 
said. He is perhaps best remembered for his role as Judge 
Frollo in the 1996 Disney animated film "The Hunchback of 
Notre Dame."  During the last decade of his career, Jay 
found substantial work in video games, the report said.  
"His voice was pretty tremendous and one of a kind," said 
Natanya Rose, who worked with Jay on video-game projects 
for International Creative Management. "Any time you needed 
that regal, deep, wise presence, he definitely was the 
person to go to." Born in London in 1933, Jay is survived 
by his mother, Edith, 99; his brother, Robert; his son, 
Adam, 17, and his wife.
