Gene Savoy, who explored Peru for Incan and pre-Incan ruins, who sought the fountain of youth and the city of gold, who was flamboyant and known for self-promotion, hunch and chuzpah, who founded his own religion based on the Essenes, died on Sept. 11 at the age of 80.

May he rest in peace.


Rex Humbard, who was a pentacostal evangelist, who was the son of an evangelist and started out as an itenerant revivalist, who build the 'Cathedral of Tomorrow' and was, at one point, the most widely syndicated televangelist, whose ministry suffered from financial overreaching, died on Friday at the age of 88.

May he rest in peace.
