Charles Remington: Lepidopterist / Quirky Character Passes at 84

Famous Lepidopterist Charles Remington passed away on May 31. He was a very interesting character who made great strides in the study of butterflies and moths. He's (in)famous for eating cicadas and for collecting butterflies with Vladimir Nabokov. Two different obits can be found here and here.
