    • Gave up the ghost
    • Expired
    • Cashed in his chips
    • Shuffled off this mortal coil
    • Went West
    • Returned to dust
    • Crossed the Styx
    • Checked out
    • Gone to Davey Jones' locker

    Back in the 70s we used to say, "he ate it." Perhaps that's out of style now.

    Various references to Boothill, such as 'gone to Boothill'.

    Sucked the big kumara
    Extra crispy
    Went belly-up
    Gone to the big ... (in the sky)
    With his Father
    Upon his shield
    Paid the ferryman
    Came first in the big race
    Crashed & burned
    Hitched a ride with the Reaper
    Sliced & diced
    Went sideways
    Toast
    Junkie's roast
    Bit the big one
    Croaked it
    Breathed their last gasp
    (And, since ANZAC remembrance is upon us, lest we fergot)
    ..."Fallen"
