June 6, 1936 - October 17, 2008 (http://www.usatoday.com/life/music/news/2008-10-17-stubbs-obit_N.htm?csp=34)

Levi Stubbs, whose distinctive, rough-hewn voice and pleading vocal style elevated the Four Tops' soul classics to masterpieces, died today at his Detroit home. He was 72.

The Michigan native had been in ill health since being diagnosed with cancer in 1995. A stroke and other health problems led him to stop touring in 2000.

Aw, bummer!  Levi had a great voice.  I'm gonna go listen to "Bernadette" now.
