Jimmy Lee Ruffin died on a curious day, at a curious age, in a curious time. His age of death, 78, is the speed at which a gramophone plays, 78 rpm. Many people on this planet have heard the voice of Jimmy Ruffin playing on vinyl at such speeds. Gramophones are also known to spin at the speed of 45 revolutions per minute as well as 33-and a third.... I wonder who decided on those arrangements once upon a time.
Long before Jimmy was a Motown Sensation, he was recruited into the children's gospel singing group Dixie Nightingales. He was also the brother of David Ruffin of the Temptations.
- Motown = 4+6+2+6+5+5 = 28
- Dixie = 4+9+6+9+5 = 33
- Nightingales = 5+9+7+8+2+9+5+7+1+3+5+1 = 62
- Temptations = 2+5+4+7+2+1+2+9+6+5+1 = 44
Jimmy Ruffin also died on a date with special date numerology, 42 and 17.
- 11/17/14/ = 11+17+14 = 42
- 42 = meaning of life number
- 11/17/2014 = 1+1+1+7+2+0+1+4 = 17
- Kill = 2+9+3+3 = 17
Let us not overlook that the founder of Motown, Berry Gordy, who was born November 28, 1929. In other words, Gordy has "33" name Gematria and a "33" life number
- Berry = 2+5+9+9+7 = 32
- Gordy = 7+6+9+4+7 = 33
- 11/28/1929 = 1+1+2+8+1+9+2+9 = 33
"33" life numbers and names are quite common in high places, which the head of the Motown genre is. It makes me wonder what Berry knows about the deaths of other Motown Legends, such as Marvin Gaye. Something has always told me that it wouldn't have made sense his father shot him... It is said that Marvin Gaye died one day before his 45th birthday, on April 1, 1984, after his father shot him in an argument. Recall that the word "Kill" sums to 44 and 17; also recall that a gramophone can spin at a rotational speed of 45 rpm.
