2. Robin Williams

Born Robin McLaurin Williams on July 21, 1951, this legendary comedian was king when it came to improvisational skills. Williams began performing stand-up comedy in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1976, and just two years later, he would be cast in an episode of Happy Days as Mork, an extraterrestrial who comes to Earth from the planet Ork. The character was so popular that they created Mork & Mindy to showcase his considerable talents.

Williams would not only carry on with his stand-up but land more serious roles that garnered him much critical praise. Sadly, on August 11, 2014, at age 63, Williams decided to take his own life by hanging. It was discovered in the autopsy that he had Lewy body dementia. His widow, Susan Schneider Williams, described the condition as “the terrorist inside my husband’s brain.” Robin Williams is still regarded as one of the best comedians of all time.

  1. Chadwick impressed me a lot. I really liked his acting. I would watch his movies over and over I will miss him .

  2. Tonny-Broe Parkin

    It really hit me when she got her heart attack onboard the plane she had boarded. I truly admired both her and her mother – both as human being and as actors.

  3. I’ve never even heard of your # 10, What about Elvis, the king of rock & roll, actor/love of every woman’s heart? Where does he come in at on your list?
    Also, what about Paul Walker/actor, starred in The Fast and Furious franchise, the longest running street car racing action series spanning the 90’s until present. 20 years running with nine movies, six of which he was one of the leading roles as character Brian O’ Conner along side Vin Diesel, starring as Dom Torento. Paul, 40 yrs old , tragically died in a fiery car crash when the Porsche he was a passenger in lost control hit a light pole then a tree and exploded into flames, literally burning Paul to death.
    Paul’s daughter, Meadow, later won a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche for a undertirement amount of money in the death of Paul caused by a faulty fuel line. Where does Paul fall into your devastating celebrities deaths?

    1. CHADWICK BOSEMAN was the most shocking at only 43, as we didn’t see it coming he was so talented and kind, but WHITNEY HOUSTON, PRINCE and LUTHER VANDROSS hit us in the gut!!! 😪🎶🎵 I really couldn’t see MICHAEL JACKSON living to be an old man, his death was shocking but not that surprising.

  4. Wow not mentioning the tragic and shocking murder of John Lennon is a shame. James Dean and Chadwick Boseman were very shocking as well. The others were sad and shocking but were inevitable due to their drug and alcohol abuse. Sharon Tate was another shocking murder. Thank you April patgault@comcast.net

  5. Robin Williams, Whitney Houston, both were devastating., to me. Robin Williams was a complete surprise! He was a genius and made his living with his brain. So, I can see he had no light at end of the tunnel experience. But, a shocking event. Whitney Houston, was incredible! Whenever she was singing I just took pause to hear the beauty of very note. But she couldn’t get away from. Bobby. The end was clear to me. Still an incredible woman. Her daughter was equally a shock.
    Michael Jackson, equally a shock. Killed by the very people meant to help him. I always just stopped whatever I was doing to watch him dance. His music was fantastic! One of a kind!

  6. Can’t believe you didn’t name Michael Jackson and Kobe Bryant, who gave you this list. You had several that were substance abusers.

  7. Where is John Lennon on this list. I am not a fan of his or the Beatles but I recognized that his tragis death had a huge impact worldwide.

  8. I agree with the 10 celebrity deaths that left fans devastated but what about ‘TINA TURNER’ and ARETHA FRANKLIN ? I was very,very devastated by their passing!!!

  9. John Denver’s death affected me the hardest and still does to this day. Knew him in college and had one date with him before he was “John Denver”. His music still moves me.

  10. All entertainers passing broke my heart. When Ms. Houston passed, I cried for weeks.
    When Chadwick Boseman passed, I thought I would never catch my breath.
