You left out the following members of The Sportsmen Quartet:

Bill Days (1911-2002)
Gurney Bell (1912-1976)
Bob Stevens (passed away in 1961)
Max Smith (1912-1999)
John Rarig (1913-1991) (only appeared with the group in their early 40's appearances, became their arranger later on)

The following members of The Sportsmen Quartet are still alive:

Marty Sperzel (lives in Glendale, CA)
Jay Meyer (lives in Sun Valley, CA)
Thurl Ravenscroft (who didn't appear as much with the Quartet on the Benny show as people think)

BTW, all the biographical info in IMDB on the members of The Sportsmen (with the exception of Stevens and Ravenscroft, I submitted. I was friends with Days and Smith and have had contact with Meyer and Ravenscroft.
