Nobody for me.

Although, I wish the famous person that was born on the same day had died "on the way out".

Ryan Seacrest.

No deaths on Wikipedia, either.

Hah! Blackbeard was the fucking man! Where my parents house is in the Outter Banks, they call that area of the ocean "The Graveyard of the Atlantic" and Blackbeard was very active in that area. The marina across the street from the house is actually called "Teach's Lair"

136,555 people died the day I was born. Four great(taking over 100 lives) natural disasters. Tom Pryce, a Formula One driver, and the fire marshal Jansen Van Vuuren , both died during the South African Grand Prix. Van Vuuren was attending a car that had caught fire, and the car was struck by Pryce at 170mph. Pryce was then struck by Van Vuuren's fire extinguisher in the face, killing him instantly.

Elvis and Charlie Chaplin died the year I was born.

Nearly 3000 people died on my birthday in 2001.

That sucks. Similar thing happened to one of the guys that played in Twilight Zone: the Movie. He and a couple kids were filming a pyrotechnic scene involving a live helicopter flying low. The pyro severed the tail rotor, which decapitated the actor and one of the kids, and the other kid was crushed by the crashed heli.
