BEFORE you send us an E-mail telling us that we have the date of death wrong, read on. The Thursday June 4, 1987 New York Times ran Will's obit; it said he had died on "Wednesday," so many references have assumed that it was the Wednesday before the obit ran (June 3rd) and listed that as his date of death. The AP Dateline at the top of the article/wire copy is "June 2", placing the date of death on the Wednesday before Tuesday June 2nd --- Wednesday May 27, 1987.
