Top Ten Saddest Deaths of 2015So far this year, we've lost some treasured people: mathematicians, actors, musicians; and we'll only lose more. These people have changed the world in their own ways, be it by thrilling sci-fi fans or by actively saving lives, and it's worth commemorating them with this list.
He worked not for himself, but for the rest of the world. He cared more for his employees and the enjoyment of his players than he did for fame and money!
He was a down-to-earth and generous person who respected and cared for his employees, and his only goal was to entertain people with his work!
Nintendo was, is and always will be my favorite video game company. This man's accomplishments in the industry, whether in HAL or Nintendo, managed so much, saving games from development hell, helping getting Nintendo back to the top after the Gamecube, saving entire companies from collapse.
On his business card, he was a corporate president. In his mind, he was a game developer. But in heart, he was a gamer. Rest in peace, Mr. Iwata-san.
He was adorable, charismatix, lovable, and just someone who loved his job and wanted to make the world smile and laugh with his brilliance. RIP Satoru Iwata. You were enough of a genius to turn an image of you holding bananas into an Internet meme
Think of all the things he did in his life, all the memories and genius thoughts that he, and he alone, had stores in his incredible brain. The loss of that wealth of fascinating information, alone, is hugely sad. The man behind all of that must have been incredible. And I believe he was.
A cinematic legend who can't be replaced. He absolutely perfected the memorable roles of Saruman, Count Dooku, Scaramanga and several others, and he brought up the power of the entire films every time.
I was devastated when he passed away my all time favourite actor I grew up loving his films and getting scared along the way.
Count Dooku's character was good. Sad to hear this
Mr. Spock. My favorite character. May you live long and prosper. I had a crush on Mr. Spock since middle school, so sad to see him go.
He inspired a generation of people to do things in space to help the future. He was a great actor who will truly be missed.
No need to fear, Sheldon will just grow another Leonard Nimoy.
His name rings a bell from somewhere, but I can't pinpoint it.
A truly influential musician for all of his life. He will be missed.
Died on my birthday. Shame
One of the founders of modern game theory, and overcame may struggles with schizophrenia in the process. It was truly sad to see him go the way he did.
One of the best fantasy writers of all time. At one point, Hogfather was my favourite childhood story.
The inventor of the maser, a device which creates coherent EM waves through amplification of stimulated emission. It's an essential constituent of both radio telescopes and atomic clocks, as well as something which Niels Bohr said was physically impossible.
Just yesterday, July 30, I was watching old 80s videos of Roddy Piper. Little did I know that his life would be cut short just hours later. He is a legend that better and will live on. So shocking and heartbreaking. Haven't felt this sorrowed by a celebrity death in years.
Stand, by me. Oh, stand, by me. Oh stand. Stand by me, Stand by me.
Friday the 13th was one of the first serious horror movies I ever saw. It isn't the shocker it was when I was younger but it will always be special to me and Betsy Palmer's role as Mrs. Pamela Voorhees will always be one of the great iconic roles in annals of horror movie history.
Best bass player ever had to decease on June 27, 2015. Listen to Heart of the Sunrise right away!
I was the owner of a lonely heart the day he passed away.
