He was an excellent actor and his death is still being felt to this day. He will always be Superman.

Guess I didn't include Reeves since he'd been injured so long ago before he died, but yes, that entire story was heartbreaking. What a class act he and his whole family were. I remember getting down at times and then seeing him with such courage on TV living (and working!) while totally paralyzed...really put me to shame.

I know that is a terrible thing to say and I do regret it, but I really felt for her, not being able to go anywhere without flashing lights in your face 24/7. After I realized that she was really gone, I kind of went overboard, reading stuff about her and so forth. I have that commemorative People Mag that had the white cover and her picture on it. I may buy their tribute to Michael Jackson, but I haven't decided yet. If I had to choose between them, I'd choose Diana.

As far as JFK Jr goes, I didn't believe this one at all. I remember they searched for the bodies forever and I was just so sure that they would find him alive. Again, someone that I didn't pay much attention to until after he died. He would have gone on to great things had he lived, and his wife was so beautiful.


I am totally ashamed I forgot about this one. I remember that agonizing weekend where it seemed like MAYBE there was hope, and as the hours passed the newscasters grew more and more grim. And again, like Reeve, here was a guy (and a family) that seemed deeply decent and caring and 'together', a real force for good in the world. So sad...

I can't believe I forgot to add Heath Ledger - he and I were born in the same year. That just seemed to come out of nowhere.

Any celebrity that died under the age of 60 really stings and the ones that died under 35-40 stings me twice as bad.

Bea Arthur - I never had any idea she was ill for the longest time.

Bernie Mac

John Ritter

Nell Carter

Rebecca Schaeffer - her death forever changed Hollywood at that time. After her death California passed Anti-Stalking Laws and it made celebrities be extra cautious as to who they were seeing and/or getting their fan mail from (even to this day and age today!).

Ray Combs - I felt so sad when he took his own life after he dismissed from The Feud. If he was still around today, he could've hosted Feud for 20 years or so.

Rod Roddy

Peter Tomarken

Freddie Prinze (Sr).

John Ritter

Bernie Mac

Robert Urich

Michael Jackson

Johnny Carson

Most to all the leading cast members on Norman Lear's shows (i.e. Esther Rolle, Caroll O'Connor, Bea Arthur, and half of the cast of The Jeffersons)

Mark Goodson - without this guy, the game show genre wouldn't be as what it is!

John Belushi

John Candy

Suzanne Pleshette

Most of the celebs that died young during the AIDS Scare period of the late '80s/early '90s.

Heather O'Rourke

Michelle Thomas

Merlin Santana

Lamont Bentley

Wow, I can't believe I forgot about Christopher Reeve, either! Dana Reeve's death was a huge shock. How terrible for their son to lose both parents at only 13 years of age. I hear he is living with relatives now. I wonder how he's doing! So terribly sad! I tried reading that book about Christopher and Dana but it was way too depressing.

I don't think anyone has mentioned Dom DeLuise. I miss him, too.

Unhappy

For me it would have to be Steve Allen on October 31, 2000. I had just joined the Parents Television Council, of which he was Honorary Chairman, and I learned that he had been killed in a car accident.

Billy Mays was a shock to me also. I didn't have to see the television to know he was on. His voice was unforgettable. RIP Billy Mays I'll buy OXI Clean in remembrance of you.
