The List Of Celebrities We Lost In 2018


We’ve already bid farewell to screen legends,
music icons, and more in 2018. Join us as we take a look at these artists’
early works, reflect on their history-making performances, and discuss the circumstances
surrounding their deaths. Here are the stars we said goodbye to in 2018. Stan Lee Marvel Comics co-creator Stan Lee died November
12th, 2018 at age 95. Born Stanley Martin Lieber, Lee was responsible
for helping create iconic characters such as Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk,
Marvel’s Thor, The Fantastic Four, Black Panther, and many, many others. For a whole generation of readers, he was
the face of Marvel Comics…and maybe even comic books as a whole. “Aren’t you…?” “Oh, Stan Lee. Hi.” The last three years of Lee’s life were tumultuous,
starting in August 2015, when Lee’s former assistant sued him for alleged “severe mental
abuse.” Just under two years later, Lee’s beloved
wife of 69 years passed away, and the following January, he was accused of sexually harassing
the nursing staff at his home. In 2018, Lee’s daughter, J.C. Lee, made
headlines when she was accused of elder abuse against her father, though the comic book
icon denied any such abuse. J.C. spoke fondly about her father after his
death, telling TMZ: “My father loved all of his fans. He was the greatest, most decent man.” Burt Reynolds Actor Burt Reynolds died September 6th, 2018,
from a reported heart attack. The Hollywood icon was gearing up to film
Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood shortly before his death. Smokey and the Bandit made Reynolds a household
name in 1977, and the actor went on to build a career that was marked by both big hits
and big misses, like turning down the role of Han Solo in Star Wars. Reynolds’ personal life was particularly
stormy. His divorce from actress Loni Anderson was
a 22-year process, and the actor was open about never getting over his Smokey and the
Bandit co-star and former girlfriend Sally Field, who he called the love of his life. Though Reynolds left us at age 82, his bravado
– and his legendary mustache – will endure on-screen forever. Aretha Franklin Aretha Franklin died August 16th, 2018 at
76 years old. The Queen of Soul’s family issued a statement
acknowledging that she passed away from pancreatic cancer, which she had previously denied battling
in an interview with Jet magazine. The severity of her then-undisclosed illness
wasn’t revealed until just a week before she died. Franklin was a musical legend, honored as
Rolling Stone’s greatest singer of all time. She had 18 Grammys and 44 nominations, and
was the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. She was also a key figure in the Civil Rights
Movement, with her songs “Think” and “Respect” becoming unofficial anthems for equality. Franklin even performed at Martin Luther King
Jr.’s memorial service following his assassination. Mac Miller Rapper Mac Miller, born Malcolm McCormick,
died from a reported overdose on September 7th, 2018 at just 26 years old. Miller had been open about his struggles with
substance abuse, which reportedly contributed to the end of his relationship with pop star
Ariana Grande in spring 2018. In February 2016, Miller said in a mini-documentary
for Fader: “I’d rather be the corny white rapper than
the drugged-out mess who can’t even get out of his house. Overdosing is just not cool. You don’t go down in history because you overdose. You just die.” Miller’s family released a statement after
his death, saying: “He was a bright light in this world for his
family, friends and fans. Thank you for your prayers.” Stephen Hawking World-famous theoretical physicist Stephen
Hawking died March 14th, 2018. According to the BBC, Hawking – who’d been
diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, when he was just 21 years old – died peacefully
in his home in Cambridge. He lived to be 76 years old, despite being
given just two years to live at the time of his diagnosis. “But it’s been a great struggle, which
I have got through only with a lot of help from my family, colleagues, and friends.” Hawking is survived by his children: Lucy,
Tim, and Robert, who said in a statement: “We are deeply saddened that our beloved father
passed away today […] His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humor inspired people
across the world. He once said, ‘It would not be much of a universe
if it wasn’t home to the people you love.’ We will miss you forever.” ​Dolores O’Riordan Dolores O’Riordan, the legendary frontwoman
of The Cranberries, died on January 15th, 2018 at age 46. A U.K. coroner told The Associated Press that
O’Riordan was found dead in her London hotel room, but that no foul play was suspected
in her passing. O’Riordan’s boyfriend of two years, musician
Olé Koretsky, wrote in a statement: “My friend, partner, and the love of my life
is gone. My heart is broken and it is beyond repair. Dolores is beautiful […] The energy she
continues to radiate is undeniable. I am lost. I miss her so much.” Anthony Bourdain Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, best known
for his Emmy-winning TV series Parts Unknown, was found dead after apparently taking his
own life on June 8th, 2018. He was 61 years old. CNN issued a statement on Bourdain’s sudden
death, saying: “It is with extraordinary sadness we can confirm
the death of our friend and colleague … His love of great adventure, new friends, fine
food and drink and the remarkable stories of the world made him a unique storyteller. His talents never ceased to amaze us and we
will miss him very much.” Bourdain built a name for himself as an outspoken
chef with a reformed bad-boy reputation. Though he’d admitted to substance abuse
problems in the past, the famous chef had reportedly overcome those challenges to become
a highly successful food and travel connoisseur and renowned journalist. “Just when you think ‘I’ve had enough
of this,” something really interesting happens. And interesting things happen to me all the
time.” When Parts Unknown received a Peabody Award
in 2013, the organization remarked of Bourdain: “He’s irreverent, honest, curious, never condescending,
never obsequious […] People open up to him and, in doing so, often reveal more about
their hometowns or homelands than a traditional reporter could hope to document.” Richard ‘Old Man’ Harrison Pawn Stars patriarch Richard “Old Man” Harrison
passed away on June 25th, 2018, reportedly from complications related to Parkinson’s
disease. Richard, a Navy veteran who often spoke of
his service on the show, became a fan favorite on the History Channel hit series, which debuted
in 2009, though his appearances in recent years have been few and far between. Richard opened the Gold & Silver Pawn Shop
in Las Vegas with his son Rick after moving to Sin City in the 1980s. Rick said in a statement: “He was my hero and I was fortunate to get
a very cool ‘Old Man’ as my dad. That I got to share him with so many others
and they got to see what a great family man he was is something I am grateful to have
experienced with him.” Kate Spade On June 5th, 2018, it was reported that fashion
designer Kate Spade had tragically taken her own life at 55 years old. Born Katherine Noel Brosnahan, the famous
handbag designer is survived by husband Andy Spade – brother of comedian and actor David
Spade – and their 13-year-old daughter, Frances Beatrix Spade. According to TMZ, law enforcement sources
said Kate left a note for Frances that read, in part, “This is not your fault.” The Spade family asked for privacy in a statement,
saying: “We are all devastated. We loved Kate dearly and will miss her terribly.” Mandy Blank Fitness legend Mandy Blank died in her Los
Angeles home on October 29th, 2018 at 42 years old. Per TMZ, the 1999 International Federation
of Bodybuilding World Champion, was discovered in the bathtub by a housekeeper and pronounced
dead on the scene. Reportedly no foul play was suspected in Blank’s
death, and no drugs or alcohol were found at the scene, but an autopsy performed on
November 1st proved inconclusive, according to a statement by the Los Angeles County Coroner. Fitness icon and nutrition coach, Annette
Milbers, said of Blank’s sudden passing, “I’m absolutely shocked […] She always made
other people feel great.” “…I’m not just some DVD sitting on the
counter. You are going to get a full transformation
– mind, body, soul, spirit.” Devin Lima LFO singer Devin Lima passed away on November
21st, 2018 at just 41 years old. Lima was one-third of the boy band famous
for hits such as “Summer Girls” and “Girl On TV.” In October 2017, Lima underwent surgery to
remove a tumor from his adrenal gland that was reportedly the size of a football. According to bandmate Brad Fischetti, Lima
also had to have his spleen and left kidney removed during the surgery because the organs
were “engulfed” by the tumor. When the tumor was initially detected, Lima
felt positive about his prognosis, saying in a video to fans: “It’s great to be holistic and have positive
vibes. You can cure a lot, I’ve cured a lot with
just my mind.” Later in October 2017, Fischetti announced
that Lima had been diagnosed with stage 4 adrenal cancer. On November 21st, 2018, he announced his band-mate’s
death in an emotional YouTube video: “To me he was a brother, to his six kids
he was a father, to their mother – a wonderful partner.” Sadly, Lima is the second member of LFO to
suffer an untimely death from cancer. Frontman Rich Cronin passed away at age 36
in 2010 after battling leukemia. Dennis Edwards Temptations singer Dennis Edwards passed away
at age 74 on February 1st, 2018. Edwards replaced original lead singer, David
Ruffin, in 1968, bringing his gospel style to the lead vocals on some of the group’s
most memorable later-career hits, including “Just My Imagination,” “Cloud Nine,” “Papa
Was a Rolling Stone,” and “I Can’t Get Next to You.” He split from the group in 1977, but rejoined
a decade later – and in 1989, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member
of The Temptations. According to the Chicago Tribune, Edwards
died from complications from meningitis. He is survived by his wife, Brenda, as well
as a daughter from his previous marriage to Ruth Pointer of The Pointer Sisters. Avicii Swedish DJ and producer Avicii died April
20th, 2018 at just 28 years old. The EDM superstar, born Tim Bergling, was
most famous for his hits “Levels,” “Hey Brother” and “Wake Me Up,” featuring Aloe
Blacc. Bergling suffered from some serious medical
issues in the final years of his all-too-short life, including acute pancreatitis, which
he attributed to excessive drinking. Though he reportedly quit drinking entirely,
his health issues continued, leading to the DJ having both his appendix and gallbladder
removed in 2014. By 2016, Avicii had retired from touring completely,
telling The Hollywood Reporter: “It was something I had to do for my health. The scene was not for me […] I’m more of
an introverted person in general. It was always very hard for me. I took on board too much negative energy.” TMZ reported that the DJ was found dead at
a resort in in Muscat, Oman. The circumstances surrounding his passing
remain unclear. In memoriam Sadly, these aren’t the only celebrities who

  5. There is a lesson in there somewhere with Burt Reynolds. He was a huge star, but at the end of his life he was filled with regrets over the people he should have spent more time loving.

  6. I was about to freak out and be like seriously no one knows anything about rock and roll from our generation and it's sickening cause Tom Petty and Greg Allman weren't on this list and then I realize they've been dead a whole damn year already.

  7. Stan Lee and Aretha Franklin were true legends that gave the world so much heart, soul and joy, and they will be missed by the whole of humanity. And all the others will be missed as well. R.I.P.

  8. So, is suicide happening with a greater per-capita rate, or are we just hearing about more because the media is saturating us with it? Still, I'm sorry to hear of it every time.

  9. So you celebrate the life and death in detail of a handful of losers who OD'd or killed themselves but people like Sen John McCain get only a quick honorable mention? Thumbs down.

  10. I'd comment "where's x" but idc who ya'll acknowledge. Especially after doing Stan Lee dirty like that, bringing up his harassment accusations smh

  11. Hope that guy Devin Lima didn't reject actual treatments in place of that holistic nonsense. Wonder how many people do, and just let themselves die?
