Oleg Ivanovsky has died. He passed away yesterday (September 18, 2014) in 
Moscow. FPSpace members will remember him as the "lead designer" of 
Vostok under Sergey Korolev and the man who closed the hatch on Yuri 
Gagarin in 1961. He was later a Deputy Chief Designer (from 1965) and 
then Chief Designer (from 1976) at Lavochkin directing the development 
of deep space probes.

Here's the (Russian language) link at the Lavochkin website:
