Juan Romero - He was the 18-year old busboy at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles who cradled the wounded body of Robert Kennedy on June 5, 1968 after gunman Sirhan Sirhan shot Kennedy in the back and head as Kennedy was walking through the hotel's kitchen shaking hands with hotel employees after his win in the California Democratic primary earlier that night. Photojournalists captured the tragic and iconic moment in black and white photos. Romero's daughter said that her father rarely talked about that night, but in a 1998 interview with the Associated Press, Romero said "I reached out to shake his hand and there was loud screaming, and he suddenly fell on the ground. I kneeled down to him and I could see his lips moving, so I put my ear next to his lips and I heard him say, 'Is everybody OK?' I said, 'Yes, everybody's OK.' I put my hand between the cold concrete and his head just to make him comfortable."

Douglas Rain, the acclaimed Shakespearean actor whose chilling performance as the voice of the homicidal HAL 9000 computer in "2001: A Space Odyssey" rendered the amoral emptiness of outer space in sound, died Sunday at age 90.
