Graham Kennedy dead at 71
May 25, 2005
From: AAP
TELEVISION legend Graham Kennedy has died at a nursing home in the NSW southern highlands, a close friend says.

The veteran Australian entertainer suffered several long illnesses in recent years after he fell down a set of stairs in 2003, breaking his leg and skull.
Long-time friend Tony Sattler, 71, said Mr Kennedy died about 4.30am (AEST).

Mr Kennedy won 19 Logie awards, including five gold statuettes, since bursting onto Australian television screens in 1957.

Very sad, I used to love watching Blankety Blanks when I was a kid.

When I was in the Navy and our ship went to the first Gulf War Graham Kennedy sent a very nice big note to the ship wishing us the best.
