1 Stephen Hawking Stephen Hawking Stephen William Hawking (January 8, 1942 - March 13, 2018) was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.

As I've said one time, but will now say again, I give my biggest of condolences to this century's Einstein as Hawking's legacy and contributions, whether they be in the scientific field or as a model of inspiration to others, will forever live on and not be forgotten. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Your contributions will be instrumental in the understanding of theoretic. You will be missed. - CrimsonShark

Sad - Gangem

RIP to the man that played the Drill Seargent in almost everying. - 445956

6 Billy Graham Billy Graham

While I'm not much of a religious person nor do I know much about Billy Graham, what I could say about him was that he must have been a very generous and influential evangelist in society. On a side note, they actually held his funeral where I live. After all, Charlotte, NC is his home town. Lots of people gathered over this week as I write this to come to his funeral. For what I know and don't know the good he did, may Billy Graham nonetheless rest in peace. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

He should be number one instead of Stephen hawkings. Stephen hawkings is an athiest - potatogurl

Barbara Bush by far the saddest - 2storm

11 Verne Troyer Verne Troyer

R.I.P Mini-Me, you will be missed

12 Francis George Adeodatus Micallef
13 Isao Takahata

May Isao Takahata's legacy as co-founder of Studio Ghibli live on even in death. From the person who worked on acclaimed anime movies like Grave of the Fireflies or The Tale of Princess Kaguya, Takahata will surely be missed for his contributions to Studio Ghibli and to the anime industry as a whole. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

14 Raymond King
15 Alfie Evans

Alfie's death goes to show how crap the British Healthcare System is. Not only is it already disturbing having to not see a child just get his needs shafted in such a time of need, but also how his parents kept getting denied of any help they wanted for their son.

I will say though, that there is a much bigger catalyst going on, with Alfie's struggle being a notable event to highlight that. - CrimsonShark

16 Eugène Gerards
17 Edwin Jackson
18 Ray Thomas

Many know his flute solo on Nights In White Satin, fewer know his name, voice and body of work. - Billyv

The founding member of 'The Moody Blues' - Undistinguished

25 Charles Lazarus

It's sad to see Toys 'r' Us, which made our childhood, crumble up like this. Days after it went out of business, it's founder passed away. RIP - 445956

26 Mauro Staccioli
27 Prince Henrik of Denmark
28 Seo Minwoo

I despise K-pop, but to see another news that a K-pop star has died is heartbreaking. He was in the band 100%. He was only 33, and he died of cardiac arrest in Gangnam. RIP - 445956

29 Erin Popovich
30 Jessica Falkholt

Her parents were killed in a car accident on Boxing Day 2017, her sister died three days later due to same crash, and she was in critical condition until January 17th, passing at age 28. You can't get more tragic when someone loses all of her direct family AND she will never get to experience so much in her acting career. - CrimsonShark

31 Vic Damone

Vic was a man who was very famous in the 50s. My living grandmother met him as a child, and surprisingly, got to dance with him! She was surprised in one of my last visits when I told her he was still alive. That is no longer the case. Croon in Heaven, Vic. - 445956

32 David Ogden Stiers

RIP to a true Disney and T.V. legend. He was great on Regular Show, Beauty and the Beast, and other stuff, but he was unforgettable in MASH. RIP David, and condolences to Will Friedle because he said that he wouldn't have became an actor without DOS. - 445956

40 Jerry Van Dyke

His distinct visual art style and postcard memories frames were truly standouts of his works. For what influence he had on the projects he worked on, may Osamu Dezaki rest in peace as his postcard memories will always be memories to all those fond of his art style and legacy. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

44 Dale Winton

His Supermarket Sweep was the game show to be on in the 90s.

45 Jim Nabors
