Bernie Mac and Issac Hayes

Bernie Mac and Issac Hayes have passed away (old news I know).

Bernie Mac (1957-2008) passed away due to complications from pneumonia. Mac had suffered with a condition called sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease. He was well known for his role in the remake of "Ocean's Eleven" and subsequent sequels and for his role in his self-titled sitcom, The Bernie Mac Show which lasted from 2001 to 2006.

Issac Hayes (1942-2008) passed away at his home in Memphis. Hayes was known as singer of the song "Shaft" and the younger generation knows him as the voice of Chef in South Park from 1997 to 2006.

Both entertainers will be missed.
