Saddest Deaths of 2017anthonybecerra831
The Top Ten
Just so surprising I don't think I can even begin to describe how sad this is I mean it wasn't just any death he was the voice of his generation but left us at the age of 41 from a suicide. Most think because his friend Chris Cornell also committed suicide and since it is Chris Cornell's Birthday he decided to hang himself - Thecyanryan
Don't let OJ's parole overshadow how big Bennington was in the Nu Metal/rock genre. You may not like them much, but you have to admire such great success they achieved in their peak. Now I can't possibly think the band will move on from another singer its over, and Chester will forever stick out for me. Thanks for everything you gave us fans from the beginning to end. - htoutlaws2012
This death still hits me hard... his music just feels and sounds more depressing now. Especially Dead by Sunrise, Linkin Park and Grey Daze. May his roul rest in peace he was a talented man that had a good run. I never got to see him live which is a shame because he had a really good vocal range. His death hit me harder then any death this year. It was like having a close friend die. I still cry when I hear songs like "Leave out All The Rest" or "One More Light".
R.I.P Chester, dead but never forgotten - BlazinWraithV 33 Comments
I don't really know what to say. He was a huge inspiration to my own personal songwriting. He had a voice that hasn't been replicated. His music was one of the contributing factors to why I love Grunge (and practically the Alternative music genre in general). Rest In Peace Chris. We'll miss ya buddy. Hope you're rocking up there in heaven. - cjWriter1997
I get so mad when people say Chester had a worst death. Chris Cornell inspired many artist (he was one of the best singers or rock n roll history). This death impacted many people. MILLIONS of people. Rip chris Cornell you will never be forgotten

He was a great Batman and a great Mayor West (Family Guy) - EpicJake
It was just so sudden, and the fact that nobody told us he had leukemia made it sadder.
He was 88 years old, though.
But I'll always remember him as the '60s Batman and the mayor in Family Guy.

Very popular wwe wrestler, loving and really nice in the ring. Amazing performer and a load of people around the world who like professional wrestling will missing him.
Just got back from watching Animat's tribute podcast to June Foray. To see someone as important to not only some of the most beloved characters in animation we all know and love that she has voiced, but someone important to the medium of animation in contributing to said medium being able to stand out in the eyes of Hollywood is tragic. While I will always remember her most as the voice of Granny from Looney Tunes, whom she has voiced throughout the entirety of her career in literal terms, now me and everyone else shall remember her as the first lady of voice acting and an important figure in animation for her legacy. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
She was known for voicing many Looney Tunes characters. RIP - Cartoonfan202
She should be higher. - 445956
Why is a pornstar above this comedy legend? - 445956
This guy raised BILLIONS to raise money for the MDA with his telethons.
Without him, not as many people would be aware of muscular dystrophy.
He was also an amazing actor, most known for his role in The Nutty Professor, and part of the duo that made up Martin and Lewis. - Drewman1211
One of the greatest rappers.
Why do these plebs let this sink down to last place? - djpenquin999

RIP Phillies and Blue Jays Pitcher - AnimeSportsFan619
As a lifelong Phillies fan, I was heartbroken when I found out that Roy died. He only played for us for four years, but he is probably a Top 5 Phillies pitcher ever. Such a great man and a class act.
R.I.P. Roy Halladay - phillysports
Rene Artois himself
WWE hall of famer sad death he really had an impact on us
Not a celebrity. Just a young guy who lost his life way to soon at the hands of a totalitarian regime.
After I heard of his death, my stomach's acid turned into tears. - TeamRocket747
It took a long time to let his death fully soak in.
He was a documentary filmmaker, photographer and scuba diver. He was found dead in Florida and he will be missed.
I read that as rod stewart and got confused - Gruunge
No one deserves to go through what he did. No one. Steve Stephens deserves to rot in hell at the very least. - WonkeyDude98
I was devastated to hear of the untimely death of a true pioneer in trance music. He inspired an entire generation of trance music ahead of him, and truly changed the shape of trance culture. Let his amazing music live on forever, as a constant reminder of what it started. - PositronWildhawk
One of the most influential musicians of my generation. For me he is in top 5. Rest In Peace Roberto!

Saddest death of all time
Should be higher on this list, as high as the moon... - wren6
He was the last person to walk on the Moon, and he took that famous photo of Earth,.
The mission was Apollo 17.
He was a legendary hero, and like the other moon walkers, he will be remembered forever.
This should go on top.
