This death was not addressed in the 2023 thread when it happened, but it has been brought to my attention (as of the time I made this post) that David Oreck, the namesake founder of the Oreck Corporation (makers of the Oreck XL vacuum cleaners) and spokesperson for said company's commercials, passed away on 2/15/23, no cause of death given. Like Bob Barker, Oreck was 99.
