Terry Pratchett: 28 April 1948 – 12 March 2015 - In his later years Pratchett became known for his campaign to promote assisted dying. In 2011’s Choosing to Die documentary, Sir Terry argued that he should be allowed to choose the timing of his death, not the government. “I know the time will come when words will fail me,” he said. “Then, I don’t want to go on living.” – Sir Terry Pratchett
