Kevin Duckworth Dies; Reminds Us To Be Grateful For Other Duckworths We Still Have

Kevin Duckworth died today, and in honor of his death we are going to list other great Duckworths through that years that have touched our lives. Feel free to chime in with any others.

1. Mr. Duckworth from Ducktales. He wasn't exactly well-respected by Scrooge McDuck or his nephews, but we all loved the show. And who can forget the wonderful theme song?

2. Tammy Duckworth from Iraq. She lost both of her legs and the use of her right arm in Iraq. An American hero.
3. Mr. Gerald Ducksworth from Mighty Ducks. "Quack quack quack, Mr. Ducksworth". We all remember Gordon Bombay's meteoric rise to the top of the legal profession, before his precipitous fall after the DUI. But do we all remember the partner at the firm he worked with? Mr. Ducksworth of course.
Mr. Ducksworth from Mighty Ducks is my favorite, but no matter who you choose, we should count ourselves lucky for the Duckworths we have.

I'm pretty sure Tammy Duckworth lost her legs in Iraq. Just wanted to clarify.
