Did you know that Baseball Almanac has a specific page for umpire burial locations, umpire gravesite photos and umpire obituaries online?
The Cultural Encyclopedia of Baseball (1997) by Jonathan Fraser Light has an entire section dedicated to Baseball Related Deaths (pg 199); here are some entries from that great book:
"He's dead at the present time." - Casey Stengel (on the status of a colleague)
"Most people my age are dead — you could look it up." - Casey Stengel
"George (Brett) is getting to be such a monster that I'd hate to die in a car wreck with the guy. You'd be listed as: Others Killed." - Clint Hurdle (1981)
