I thought it was forbidden to wish death on someone here.

Cloris Leachman hasn't been mentioned. She's 93.

And while we're on the subject... how about Ed Asner, Valerie Harper and Gavin MacLeod?

Ric Flair's been in and out of the hospital (he's in at the moment, it seems) a lot over the last few years. In a occupation with guys regularly dropping under age 30, he's positively ancient at 70, and he's literally survived a plane crash. I don't look forward to it, but won't be surprised when the Nature Boy gives his final "WOOOOOOO" and goes strutting through those pearly gates.
