    "King of the Surf Guitar" though he didn't wanted the title in later years. Certainly a wonderful and influencing musician.

    Dan Robbins, an artist who created the first paint-by-numbers pictures and helped turn the kits into an American sensation during the 1950s, has died (05.04.19). He was 93.

    I just heard of his death on April 9, thanks to Numberphile, but:

    Elwyn Berlekamp.

    And if you don't know who that is, oh boy do you have a treat in store, because (amongst other things) he was one of the authors of Winning Ways for your Mathematical Plays.
