    A source tells Fox News that he "suffered a heart attack while driving and hit a tree."

    Lanny Poffo, Randy's brother, told TMZ the accident happened Friday morning when Savage lost control of his vehicle.

    Florida Highway Patrol said Savage leapt a concrete median, veered into oncoming traffic and smashed into a tree head on.

    He died from his injuries at largo Medical Center.

    Savage, 58, had just celebrated his first wedding anniversary with his wife Lynn. It was his second marriage. His first wife died of a drug overdose shortly after their divorce in 1992.

    Professional wrestler Kevin Nash tweeted: "I lost a close friend today. If anybody in heaven is wondering who the cat in the ugly cowboy hat is it's Randy. Love you Bro. Never another."

    Savage helped put WWF wrestling on the map in the 1980s and '90s, becoming, along with Hulk Hogan, one of its biggest draws. His outrageous outfits and bellowing voice made him a fan favorite.

    This was a few years or so ago, but Myron Cope, a man famous in my home city, passed away. He made the Terrible Towel, which is a Pittsburgh Steelers towel people wave at NFL games to cheer for them. He was a well-respected man where I come from.

    I doubt many of you have heard of him, but he was famous where I'm from.

    RIP.

    And now Jeff Conaway is dead. Not surprising given his recent history, but it's still a shame.

    The father of teenage British diving champion Tom Daley has died from brain cancer at the age of 40, and so misses out on his dream of seeing his son compete in the London 2012 Olympic Games.

    Robert Daley, dubbed a "passionate and proud" father, had vowed to survive with his illness long enough to watch Tom compete in the Olympics, but on Friday night succumbed to his long battle against it.

    Mr Daley, who accompanied his son to tournaments and became a familiar figure at the poolside, died "peacefully" with his family by his side, British Swimming said.

    London 2012 chairman Lord Coe has led the tributes, saying: "Tom's father Rob was a huge inspiration to him. His love and support helped Tom achieve what he has so far. I have been privileged to watch at close quarters Tom's progress over the last few years and saw for myself the close bond between them. Our thoughts are with Tom and his family."

    Mr Daley's health had deteriorated since February after it was confirmed that a tumour had returned, five years after he was first diagnosed with the illness.

    In an interview for a BBC documentary in October last year Mr Daley had said the thought of seeing his son dive at the Olympics had been a key motivation in helping him keep the illness at bay for so long. "I wonder if I'll make 2012, or see grandchildren? I do think 'why me'," he said. "London 2012 is a massive motivation for me. Am I going to be there?"

    World platform champion Tom, who turned 17 last week, was with his father, and last night wrote on his Twitter page: "I love you so much Dad."

    There was a minute's silence in memory of Mr Daley at the end of the BT Paralympic World Cup swimming events at the Manchester Aquatics centre, and Tom has been inundated with messages of condolence online.

    Mr Daley's determination to support his son meant he made a late dash to Sheffield with his family last month to watch Tom and synchro partner Peter Waterfield claim their first gold medal together in the World Series.

    Mr Daley leaves his wife Debbie and three sons Tom, William and Ben.

    I think this is the proper place to post this.
    A lot of people didn't like the show and much of them despise it. But I loved it, so here I am saying this:
    RIP Ryan Dunn.

    RIP Ryan Dunn.
    I will always remember you as the calmest and sanest of the Jackasses, which made the act of sticking a miniature car up your behind all the more funnier.
    You went out far too early and you will be missed.

    RIP Peter Falk.
    You were amazing as Columbo. I really enjoyed the shows, mainly because of you.
    This is a sad day indeed.

    BBC News - Amy Winehouse found dead, aged 27

    R.I.P Amy Winehouse.

    Had to sound like a douche, but with her life-style, I am surprised she lived this long.
