I remember him as a player. I had to do a double take, because there was another even more famous Doohan.

MND is terrible and prognosis is usually 3 to 5 years.
Same thing as ALS, which Stephen Hawking (fraud) has allegedly had for 50 years.

His name still reminded me where I had heard that name-as the player who took out the two times defending champion at wimbledon.

He was only 56 ! Looked older.

RIP !
