Continuing with the Lucille Ball...

...theme this morning, Ricci Martin (left), the youngest son of Dean Martin, died at (the young age) of 62.

Mr. Martin joined the band Dino, Desi and Billy in the 1990s, taking the place of his brother Dean Paul Martin, who died in 1987 when his Air National Guard F-4 Phantom fighter crashed in California during a storm.

(Desi, of course, is Desi Arnaz, Jr., the son of Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball.)

From Martin's obit in the Times (my emphasis):

Survivors include his three daughters, Pepper, Montana and Rio...

Couldn't resist.
