Opera singer

Mr. Lundberg, who lived in Ronkonkoma on Long Island, N.Y., died at Stony Brook University Medical Center. The cause of death wasn't released.

Mr. Lundberg competed at the regional finals of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions as a bass, baritone and tenor.


Journalist, blogger

Adrian Sudbury, a young British journalist who blogged about his fight with cancer and campaigned for more bone marrow donations, has died in his sleep, his family said.

His death Wednesday was announced on the blog and in the Huddersfield Examiner, the newspaper he worked for as an online journalist when he fell ill in November 2006.

This month, Mr. Sudbury fought off debilitating fatigue to say goodbye to more than 30 people, one at a time.

Mr. Sudbury started to blog after he was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.
