Howard Finkel

Wrestling legends keep dying one after the other. Apparently, Howard Finkel suffered from a brain decease that made his brain shrink and have "strokes" of sorts. He was considered by many as the best ring announcer in professional wrestling. Rest in peace Howard Finkel.

Gigi was Kobe’s daughter who was on the helicopter with him. She was only 13 years old and had just as much passion for the game as her father did.She had her eyes set on playing for UConn. Just awful that she died so young.

R.I.P. GiGi Bryant 2006-2020

George Floyd

That had to be one of the most disgusted things I had ever seen by any officer. George's death was tragic, and the fact the other three guys didn't intervene is fitting they got cut loose.

This ignited the Minnesota riots to go as viral as it has. They are angry because they want justice for Floyd now, instead of playing the waiting game like with the pandemic.

This should be at the top and more people need to speak up about it and show awareness because it is disgusting and wrong and still the police man who did it is not getting put in prison for life he which is clearly what she deserves for killing this innocent man this is truly horrific!

Sad death, except for the terrible people looting Minneapolis for no reason.

The fact that some officers could take away the lives of someone like George Floyd in the most disgusting way as possible is absolutely unforgivable. His death also caused riots who want to do justice for George Floyd, when I'm reality, it only causes more damage to society. R.I.P. George Floyd.

Brice Armstrong
Caroline Flack Caroline Louise Flack was an English television and radio presenter, whose career began when she starred in Bo' Selecta!

By FAR the saddest death of February & sadder than many others on here (no criticism intended). She committed suicide at 40. She was the former host of Love Island & even helped revive it. She was a radio host as well. She did many things & was abused by Dan Wootenn. Definitely the saddest death in February. R.I.P.
