I realize Douglas Turner Ward may not be obscure, but unfortunately I did not know much about him despite having lived in New York City for many years. When I read that he had died, I decided to write my own obituary. Maybe some of Medium’s readers will appreciate it.





I wish I had known about these interesting people before they had died. Let’s share in the life of those lesser-known heroes I randomly discover have recently passed away.
