Top 10 Saddest Deaths of 2022
Such a shocking death. She died right in the middle of my math class. I was hoping she would get to 100 but she still had a life well lived. I don't know much about her not even about the signs of her health becoming worse but she seems like a very sweet person from what I have seen
She was the longest reigning monarch in the world, ruling the UK for 70 years (!). It's possible that she passed away from depression after the death of her husband, to whom she was married for 73 years until his death in 2021.
She is not just a queen; she is known as THE queen, and she defined an era in which many things happened and changed. May she rest in peace
Worse, people still believing the conspiracy theories about her staging Diana's death and thinking now's a good time tho express that belief.
I heard that the Queen has passed away. This is one of the saddest events of 2022. Everyone will give condolence to her. May her soul rest in peace. 1926-2022.
Lilies of the Field, In the Heat of the Night, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, The Defiant Ones, To Sir With Love. Sidey had quite the resume.
The man that paved the way for African descents into acting on films & TV shows. He lived a great life. He will never be forgotten. R.I.P. to the Martin Luther King of modern entertainment (1927-2022).
He committed suicide by hanging. He was the best member of the Power Rangers & played Tommy Oliver the White ranger. Something about the date of his death tells us people are leaving at such particular times. He was almost in his 50's (which's still way too young). R.I.P.
Even if you aren't a fan of Minecraft YouTubers, you've got to admit it's sad for him to die. Technoblade was only 23 when he died. This is a loss for not only the Minecraft community, but the YouTube community as a whole. Alex was a talented content creator and was also one of the best Minecraft players. He was taken by sarcoma despite putting up a very good fight against it. Also, the fact that Techno died at only 23 is sad as well to anyone, even if you don't like his content.
If Kane Tanaka was supposed to be #1 on the list earlier, then Techno should be up with her by then. I can't believe we lost this good fellow. This was without the hardest one as well & put the world in unbelievable pain. A truly legendary king who made among the best gaming videos made has died of the stupid disease known as cancer. Take cancer seriously because it can & does kill people. This felt like losing a part of my family too soon, which's true because he was only 23. 2022 really turned to the dark side. R.I.P. king Techno (1999-2000).
This was such a massive loss for the YouTube & Minecraft communities. The most successful player in Minecraft lost his battle to cancer on the last day of June. There's no way to describe this loss. A player who conquered many games in Minecraft & won them all. He uploaded for 8 years 8 months (yet gained 10.4M subs for his achievements) until passing away at only 23. He fought his cancer battle so hard & stayed happy throughout it until his death. His last video gained a whopping 34.7M views & 5M likes in 24 hours which's the 3rd most of such for a non-music & non-trailer YouTube video, the most by a deceased person in 24 hours & he gained more subs than any other deceased (1.6M in a day). This should be in the top pair (which Kane Tanaka deserves) right now. Perhaps the most famous & creative star we lost this year & the biggest gamer we ever lost. R.I.P. to the almighty Technoblade (1999-2022).
It all happened too soon, really tragic. I was never a fan of the newer Minecraft youtubers but Techno really stood out and was always super entertaining and funny to me. Rest In Peace.
This was such an absolute loss for WWE & all of wrestling. 3 heart attacks & a stroke after a hip injury. R.I.P. to 1 of the G.O.A.T.
Gilbert Gottfried just died after a long illness (from ventricular tachycardia, complicated by type II myotonic dystrophy, a condition he hid from the public). R.I.P. Gilbert Gottfried, you will always be one of the most beloved comedians of all time.
Legendary comedian and voice actor, Rest In Peace.
This death is extremely depressing. If you don't know what happened, look it up. RIP Abe-san. Wow. My two favorite people from Japan (the other is Kane-San) died this year. This death should shoot straight up to the top ten by the end of next week and should someday be in the top 3 at a minimum. 😭
RIP to the late Foo Fighters drummer. His drumming is absolutely a legend and the one of the biggest drummer in modern rock music. He died at the age of 50 years old. Foo Fighters is one of the best modern rock bands ever and thanks to him and Dave Grohl. We miss you.
This is very sad that I just heard it an hour ago about his death. Love Nirvana and the Foo Fighters. R.I.P., good friend. I think he is meeting Kurt Cobain in Heaven now.
I have never heard of him before this, even though I like the Foo Fighters. But this was really sad. He was only 50.
R.I.P. Taylor Hawkins (1972 - 2022).
Rest in peace, Taylor Hawkins. You will still be remembered as one of the greatest drummers of all time.
1 of the best female wrestlers of all time passed away suddenly out of nowhere at just 30. She was the winner of Tough Enough until her retirement in 2016. R.I.P. way too soon.
A faculty professor at University of Las Vegas Nevada who worked in theater & played the computer terrorist in Die Hard & his role in Top Gun lost a battle to a long illness within 3 days after Irene Cara's death & 4 days after Thanksgiving. He was 3 & a half weeks shy of his 67th birthday. R.I.P. (1955-2022).
Such a loss for words as the best of all the Batman & Dark Knight voice actors has passed away from a fairly short cancer battle on November 10th. Almost exactly 1 month after the death of Angela Lansbury. Adam West may have voiced Batman earlier, but Kevin was the most powerful of all the Batman voices. He was active since 1978 & his last project was in early 2022 (like around the time the new Batman film - which he wasn't in though - came out). Cancer has taken so many innocent lives & now him. R.I.P. to the G.O.A.T. Batman (1955-2022).
The actor most famous for providing the voice for Batman in 'Batman: The Animated Series' and many of the animated Batman movies.
Died at age 66.
The saddest. RIP. Even though she is the oldest she was the last supercentenarian I had a huge interest in. Too bad we can't see those funny videos where she lives in the moment and steals a chocolate from a chocolate box again. But the worst part is, she was so close to reaching her goal of 120, and died at 119. RIP.
She was the oldest living verified person until she died this year.
The legendary Steelers quarterback was struck by a dump truck on April 9th at only 24. This was an absolute loss for sports & Russia continues to mess with Ukraine at the same time. This year isn't as good as we hoped even after all the horrors we faced in 2020 & 2021. This's should be on top of the list ASAP! Prayers to his family & fans. R.I.P. Dwayne Haskins, a full life ahead gone too soon. 1998-2022.
Her death was out of nowhere. Just shocking & sad & that's an understatement. She collapsed while going downstairs. She was Donald Trump's 1st wife as well as a skier, author & model. This should go to the top 4. A truly hard day for the Trump family & the world. A wake up call this was. R.I.P. (1949-2022).
1 of the best selling & enduring artists of all time lost her longtime battle to breast cancer. An absolute legend with a beautiful voice we all grew up with & a master of reinvention. She was 1 of the best actresses anywhere & was about to hit her 6th decade on the spotlight. She made music for nearly 55 years in nearly every genre. Her last single Window on the Wall was released on January 2021 & hit #1 on iTunes within the 1st week of its release. This was truly shocking since she kept her cancer battle private much of the time & only occasionally gave us updates about her battle. She fought for her life throughout all the last decades of making music, touring & acting. She could've planned a great album in 2023 & it could've been album of the decade. Worst of all, she was just 7 weeks from her 74th birthday. The world will never ever be the same without her. R.I.P. (1948-2022).
Today, she died of breast cancer at the age of 73! It was the worst death of this year until it was surpassed by Queen Elizabeth! She is a singer best known as Sandy in Grease and for songs such as "Physical", "Xanadu", "I Honestly Love You", "You're the One That I Want" (with John Travolta as Danny in Grease), and "Hopelessly Devoted to You". R.I.P. Olivia Newton John! Very unexpected death!
She was a great actress and singer, I will always remember her as Sandy from Grease. A close friend of her co-star, John Travolta, she unfortunately died from the very same disease that also took his wife's life - breast cancer. May she rest in peace.
This came out of nowhere.
What's sad about this is that the recent Russian invasion of Ukraine is essentially Putin's campaign to reform the Soviet Union which Gorbachev spent his entire career during the Cold War to end once and for all.
R.I.P. to an iconic voice acting legend. He inspired many childhoods & made people laugh as well. The Charlie Brown & Peanuts community will never be the same. Suicide is very serious & it's unbelievable he did that on January 18th. R.I.P.
The original voice of Charlie Brown.
Nichelle Nichols, best known as Nyota Uhura in the Star Trek media, passed away yesterday of heart failure. Rest in peace, Nichelle. This is really sad news to Star Trek fans!
1 of the 1st black women ever featured on a TV series (Star Trek) passed away from heart failure on July 30th, the same day as Pat Carroll's death & day before basketball legend Bill Russell's death. She was less than 5 months from her 90's. R.I.P. (1932-2022).
A very devastating loss for Disney and even entertainment in general. She was known for movies as Murder, She Wrote and Beauty and the Beast. She was less than five days from turning 97. Rest in peace Angela Lansbury.
The voice of Mrs. Potts in Beauty & the Beast was just 5 days from her 97th birthday. She was better known for her role in Murder She Wrote. A sad day for Disney fans & all of entertainment. She was about to have another great birthday. R.I.P. (1925-2022).
