DANA REEVE, ACTIVIST WIFE OF LATE CHRISTOPHER REEVE, DEAD AT 
44

Dana Reeve, the former actress and activist wife of the late 
Christopher Reeve, has died of lung cancer in New York. She 
was 44. Reeve, a non-smoker, died Monday night, Kathy Lewis 
of the Christopher Reeve Foundation told the New York Times.
The former actress and singer who appeared on "Law and Order" 
and "All My Children" announced in August she was battling 
lung cancer. Together with her husband, Reeve founded and ran 
the Christopher Reeve Foundation to raise money for research 
grants and draw attention to the need for stem-cell treatments 
and other means of finding a cure for paralysis. Reeve took 
over the chairmanship of the foundation after her husband's 
2004 death and helmed the creation of the Christopher and Dana 
Reeve Paralysis Resource Center. She was also key to the 
foundation's granting of more than $8 million to projects 
aimed at improving the lives of paralysis victims. She is 
survived by her son, Will, 13; two step-children, her father 
and two sisters.

GORDON PARKS, HOLLYWOOD GROUND-BREAKING DIRECTOR, DEAD AT 93

Hollywood's first major black director, Gordon Parks, best 
known for "Shaft" and "The Learning Tree," has died in New 
York. He was 93. Parks first broke ground as a top photo-
grapher for Life magazine from 1948 to 1968, covering 
everything from high society to the dregs of poverty and the 
civil rights movement. His first movie was "The Learning 
Tree," based on his own semi-autobiographical novel, for 
Warner Bros., making him the first African-American to 
direct a film for a major Hollywood studio. "The Learning 
Tree" was one of the first 25 films honored by the U.S. 
Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film 
Registry in 1989. He went onto spark Hollywood's "blaxploit-
ation" genre in 1971 with the Richard Roundtree vehicle, 
"Shaft." His other directing credits included "Shaft's Big 
Score," "The Super Cops," "Leadbelly" and the TV movie 
"Solomon Northup's Odyssey."  He also wrote music for Duke 
Ellington, was co-founder of Essence magazine and was 
awarded a National Medal of Arts by President Ronald Reagan.
Parks is survived by a son, two daughters and several 
grandchildren.

    KIRBY PUCKETT, BASEBALL HALL OF FAMER, DEAD AT 45

Kirby Puckett, baseball Hall of Fame player, has died after 
suffering a stroke. He was 45. Puckett helped lead the 
Minnesota Twins to two World Series titles - in 1987 and 
1991. In 1991's Game 6 of the World Series against Atlanta, 
Puckett collected three hits, three RBIs and scored two 
runs. He became the ninth player to end a World Series game 
with a home run on the final pitch. During his 12-season 
career with the Twins, Puckett was a 10-time All-Star and 
a six-time Gold Glove Award winner. His .318 lifetime 
batting average ranked as the highest for any right-handed 
batter since World War II, according to the site 
BaseballLibrary.com. In 2000, Puckett was selected to the 
Twins' 40th Season Anniversary All-Time Team and inducted 
into the Twins' Hall of Fame. Puckett, who was divorced in 
December 2002, is survived by his son, daughter and fiance, 
the Twins said.

     ALI FARKA TOURE, GURKE PLAYER, DEAD AT LATE 60S

Grammy Award-winning African gurke player, Ali Farka Toure, 
died Tuesday at his home in Bamako, Mali, from bone cancer.
The so-called Bluesman of Africa was believed to be in his 
late 60s, but the exact date of his birth in Timbuktu was 
unknown, the BBC said. Toure won the first of his two 
Grammys for his 1995 recording with guitarist Ry Cooder, 
"Talking Timbuktu." His second Grammy was awarded this year 
for "In the Heart of the Moon," an album he recorded with 
Toumani Diabate of Mali. Toure worked with several U.S. 
blues guitarists through the years and Nonesuch Records 
said he had recently completed recording a new solo album. 
A release date had not been set. Radio stations throughout 
Mali interrupted programming Tuesday to play Toure's music, 
the BBC said. His funeral was scheduled for Wednesday in his 
childhood home of Niafunke, Mali.
