Has any famous/infamous person ever died on their 100th birthday?
I see this is a necro,I wonder if I responded back then.
Closest I can think of is Lord Granville of Eye.
He'd been in published lists for years as born in February 1899,
but a search of people qualified for 100th-birthday greetings from
the Queen based on birth records uncovered the fact that he was
actually born in February 1898,and thus he,not Lord Denning
(January 1899-March 1999) had been the oldest peer since 1993
though this only came to light in the run-up to his birthday.
On the day itself he showed up at the House of Lords as some
members paid tribute.
He died two days later.
The World Trade Center towers MUST rise again,
at least as tall as before...or terror has triumphed.
